I've tried following the FAqs from handspring and calling but to no avail.

Every time i hotsync it will get to "Backing up handheld databases..." then cause my coputer to reboot. I've uninstalled palm desktop numerous times, deleted the handspring folder, nothing changes it.

I *think* it may be an issue with my username on the treo...however I fear changing it becuase i don't want it to lock out all of my private messages if i change my name. will this happen or are the privacy settings connected only to the password and not the username?
