OK, you're crashing in a third party filter -- which of your third party filters is named DS_64.8bf? (it's not one that I recognize)

Hi, I got this reply form AUtoFX, I will let you know if it works:
There are 3 things that you will need to do once you get your software installed. These things will help your software run very smoothly without any issues. Follow the steps below and if you have any issues please let me know.

1. Try this, I run my computer with Data Execution Prevention enabled. This is a security
feature that has been in Windows since 2004. See Adding the AutoFx executable files to the DEP exception list allows them to
run correctly. See the article for

2. also change the file permissions on the
Program Files (x86)\Auto FX Software folder to allow modify by the group
Users. Do this by going to your start menu, Computer, C: drive, Program Files (x86), right click on the Auto FX folder, properties, Security tab at the top, highlight the Users (Services\Users) click the edit button, Highlight Users (Service\Users) and at the bottom you will check the box for Modify under the allow column it will automatically check the write box as well. click APPLY and then OK at the bottom. and it will bring you back to the first User click OK again and it will have changed your settings.

3. Go into your program files (x86), open the Auto FX Software folder, and right click on the DS application (.exe). Click on Properties. Choose the Compatibility Tab. Then check the checkbox Run this program as an administrator.

Problem has been resolved!! An automatic Windows Update to my Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit, actually corrupted my user account. I immediately thought we were all doomed, but discovered that only some of us were. After correcting the damaged user account and re-installing the plugin software, all worked well. Thank you for the advice, and join me in wondering how soon automatic updates will self destruct the entire OS. Warmest regards, Dave
