zmud won't start
 
I have used zmud for years and years. I don't do much with it now other than occasionally stop in to play on a couple of Mudds for nostaligia sake. So that's once a month or so. I tried to start zmud a few days ago and it doesn't work. when i try to start it, it thinks for a second windows asks if I want to allow zmud to make changes to my computer and then nothing happens. it just doesn't start. any ideas?

Did you give it permission? If not that could be the issue right there.
Has the system been running to long? Might simply need a reboot.
Have you made any recent changes to your system?
Worse case scenario, back up your settings and reinstall.

I guess it's the reinstall then. I was hoping for a simpler fix :)

What do the windows event logger and system reliability reports say about it?
