    Well started with just a black screen and nothing else.
    Updated video drivers, removed and reinstalled PA.
    Game came up and made a planet to play on.
    Did Skirmish AI and error - Game failed to start....
    Tried to run as admin and still same error.
    Did this about 10 times.... *sigh*
    So tied to upload the PA log and even that gives me an error to upload... REALLY????

    This is a new one I've never seen before:
    Code:
    ERROR CreateProcessW failed, Access is denied.
    I may be caused by Kaspersky antivirus software or maybe some other program. Did you check the list that @mikeyh linked to?

    File uploading seems to work for me. The files have a .txt extension and are smaller than 1.6MB, right?

    Yes and had Kaspersky off.
    I think AdBlock Plus might be the problem of the upload.
    Never the less the work around works.
    So onto hoping my issues gets fixed

    You mean you have a workaround to get PA running? Or did you mean for uploading files and you still have issues with PA?

    Why would PA work just fine and over night it would just stop with no new software added or even upgraded.

    There are always sneaky updates in the background. Virus scanners update themselves, firewalls too. Not to mention Windows itself. Some graphics card manufacturers have programs that auto-update drivers. Or hard drive space fills up. Who knows.
    PA hasn't had an update for months, so at least that stayed the same. (Soon though!)

    In any case, something is preventing PA from spawning new processes as mentioned in the log:
    Code:
    ERROR CreateProcessW failed
    We just need to figure out what that something was. (Hence the clean boot idea)
