Windows XP Pro SP3 Eset EAV 6.0.0308.0 Home Used on the mentioned machine along with, amongst others Sunbelt Personal Firewall 18.104.22.168 Acronis True Image 2009 Home, latest available build Several weeks ago an upgrade from EAV 5.x Home latest release to EAV Home 6.x builds as mentioned above was performed. Since that point of time severe troubles occur. Only disabling real-time protection of eav solution helps to avoid the troubles. Just disabling the anti-stealth technology only does not help. Since the problem root reason was narrowed to eav real-time protect. the machine operates practically without AV solution. First, the eav was removed completely >>>> indicated troubles not reproducible; then upon two weeks eav 6.x was installed again, that time without real-time protect. disabled (again indicated troubles not reproducible). Yesterday, two weeks later after that the real-time protect was enabled. Succeeding logon as admin shows the troubles again. Trouble appearance/picture: * Acronis True Image hangs up during its startup splash screen, "Processing" stage is shown * logoff needs an eternity, or does not work at all, regardless of if logged on as admin or non-admin * shortly after got logged on poor or none interaction with OS, double-clicks on most desktop, or windows file explorer, or start button/menu icons does not show any reaction * just only mouse cursor movements are possible * Control Panel >> Add Remove Programs comes up with for-ever blank window, normally noises of working hdd are audible because os is scanning for installed stuff, but not in this case hdd does nothing * and so on Every time a hard reset is needed to get back control over system in order to recover system into integral state. Every time the chckdsk scan must be performed after such crash, it consumes a lot of time. HIPS is disabled Reset to default advanced settings was made, with small adaptations to own needs - no help. SysInspector logs were generated few minutes ago and are ready for upload. Due to excessive efforts it is not acceptable to produce and upload the complete memory dump. Dealing with troubles consumed plenty of time resources. Lot of regular jobs to be done on this machine are in delay. Please help - the purchased license is not productive.
