Woe is me!

The photo of the day is one I found on the floor yesterday. It must have slipped out of a file as I have been trying to go through things now that I can see a bit better. Today I had to rely on a scan as I can no longer get my HP PhotoSmart scanner to send photos from my memory card to my computer. Which is NOT FUN!

I have googled myself silly and even paid $$$ I could not spare to load one of those file cleaners, which found almost 1200 things to be fixed. My computer is moving faster but I still get the same error when I stick in my memory card - "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled." Then it gives some codes.

I googled those and found two other people asking about the same thing on computer boards but no one had answered them. It says to click cancel to debug the application. Then it says, "Registered JIT debugger is not available." I found the RegCure program when googling this error but it has not fixed it, though I have not rebooted since I installed it, so I have a tiny bit of hope. I've actually had this error for a while but my Microsoft Wizard for cameras and scanners would pop up and take over and did fine. Now it doesn't, and when I try to run it manually it only reads the scanner as opposed to where it used to default to the memory card. It's a very old machine and very much used but I sure wish I could get it to work! I was just about to put some things up for sale and now I can't scan in my photos!

My computer does seem to be a good bit faster already! It was CRAWLING, and scanning through my files to get down to current photo files took so long. Now it is moving along. So I guess I won't ask for a refund! I will have to be frugal with our smallish memory card and save my photos on there for a while. At least I can catch up on my layouts, which are badly behind.

If anyone has any idea how to fix this, please email me!

The photo is from about six years ago, probably almost exactly, just a few months after Jing came home. That sweet smile she has is very deceptive of what was going on behind the scenes, but it's very cute!


  1. AWWWW, except for being taller and Jing having longer hair they really haven't changed much. Still beautiful, just beautiful young ladies now instead of little girls!

    I have no suggestions on the memory card issue, I run AVG and Malwarebytes (both are free) and they seems to debug anything I get. A quick search I did of JIT (just in time) seems to be some sort of programing error, not an error for users so I have no idea. Hopefully someone out there can help!

  2. I wish I could help your computer woes, but I am hopeless about issues like that.

    That photo is precious! What a gift to find it on your floor, waiting to be discovered.

  3. That is a sweet photo - look how little they look!

  4. Very cute photo! Good luck with the computer stuff, sadly I am useless when it comes to computer advice!
