I got the trial version 4.0 the other day when ever i try to run a full system scan (3 times now) ewido freezes about 20 - 30mins into scan. (fast scans seem to run fine) I tried scanning the folder that ewido seems to crash on seperately thru right click menu, and it reported no problems. After it freezes, its almost impossible to get it to go away, the task manager 'end process' just litters up the screen with those end process boxes, which then also refuse to go away. In all it takes about 5 minutes to clear the screen up, after which i have to restart ewido. Another problem i've had is with the scheduled scans, i tell it to run a complete system scan at 6pm, and when i next look at it, no freezing, but it's only run a quick scan??! WTF is going on here? I also run trend micro pc-cillin 2006, ad-aware se (free version) spybot sd, windows defender beta2, and spywareblaster ( a little paranoid perhaps, but iv been bitten b4) on a pIII with 512 ram os= winxp sp2 Any ideas whats causing this? please help!
