Maybe your antivirus needs an exception setup for the Airnav folders and Virtual Store.  You may have already done that, but it's a common cause of this sort of unresponsive RB problem.

I think a good sledge hammer would be a good idea :)
I use Norton AV Corporate edition.

Think re the virtual store.  Would it be better to re-install ANRB into a different place.  I had a similar problem with PlanePlotter.

@Fenris.

Runnin Vista Home on my Laptop.  Dual Core with 2GB Mem.


Which is a very similar setup to my laptop when I boot (spit!) Vista.

I suspect this is AV and the virtual store. I'd suggest installing to C:\Airnav.... and trying again, that's what I did after reading the recommendations from Airnav.

Agreed.  In Vista, it's much better to install anywhere other than in C:Program Files.  I install in P:\Airnav Systems, where the P drive is a partition I keep just for installing any programs that update their own files.

Maybe setup a folder called C:\Programs, and install any such programs there.

from my experience with Alerts it is the wild card entries that are not particlar reliable. Often I don't get alert for 43C* which should alert all UK Mil flights I pick up.  However I have aprrox 900 registration alert without wild cards which work. 

No scientific eveidence but I think that if I delete the alert log periodically this seems to help with the wild card log alert being shown.

With Backups of the alert lists I have created then in Excel. (exported the Reg's out of my spotting database, created the hex code wild cards list for mil aircraft myself).  This is then saved in Excel as a spreadsheet and I use cut and paste to put them into the alert fields in the RB software.  So as I see aircraft I delete them out of my excel sheet and do a cut del paste excercise to update the RB software.

You have 900 entries in the Registration alert box - wow!

43C* in the Mode S alert box works 100% for me.

I never have problems with wildcards in Alerts. But then I do clear them regularly - immediately if I am at the PC when they occur.

Of course, if AN provided a box to alert on Company it would make life a lot simpler.

Flight number = BAW* would set an alert for all British Airways flights. Does it solve it?

Yep 900+ reg alerts.  Works very well for a reggie spotter like me.  Living in site of the ockham hold for Heathrow I get to see a lot of movements out of there plus loads passing over.  So I'm crossing off loads of my needs list :-)
