1. Registered users of PowerStrip 1.x or 2.x will need
to request a new registration key. The upgrade is free,
but the registration key has changed. Your request
*must* be accompanied by the exact name or the email
address you used when you first registered.

2. Compatibility conflicts with certain hardware are
likely to always exist. PowerStrip has a wide range of
compatibility switches that may alleviate conflicts.
Be sure you exhaust the built-in remedies before you
request support.

3. The pstrip.ini file includes extensive information
about your hardware and software configuration. It must
be included with any problem report that is e-mailed.

4. Operating system upgrades to Windows 2000, XP or Vista
may require that PowerStrip be re-installed, so that the
correct additional files are installed.

5. Driver installation under x64 Editions of Windows
may require manual intervention, particularly if Win64
is installed in a FAT32 partition. Open Explorer,
select the win_x64.inf file in the PowerStrip folder,
right-click and select "Install" from the pop-up menu,
and then reboot.

6. If DEP is enabled for applications, an exclusion
may be necessary for the PowerStrip program (pstrip.exe).

7. The Pstapi.exe utility - an optional CLUT
protection daemon - has been known to trigger a false
positive in some anti-malware programs. It can be safely
deleted or excluded, as deemed appropriate, and is no
longer included with PowerStrip beginning with 3.83.
