    I've encountered problems with IMON and a couple of applications that I regularly use.
    Firstly Firefox 2.0: When I go to i.e Firefox crashes. If I the exclude FF in IMON everything is fine. I don't want to exclude FF from being filtered...
    Secondly J.River Media Center 12: When listening to streaming media and changing from one station to another IMON triggers a crash in Media Center. Again if I exclude MC everything runs just fine.

    Excluding MC I can live with but its worse with FF. I have this problem on two different computers

    Any ideas?

    To start with :
    Don't use Higher efficenly (Active mode) for all programs . As written in NOD32's help file , IMON is not appropriate for streaming applications .

    I would recommend you have Higher efficency only on your web-browser (Firefox and Opera...)

    The solution for your problem :

    1. Repair Winsock
    Since you have Windows XP with SP2 you can use internal commands to repair Winsock
    IMON works in the early Winsock level in order to protect you . IMON needs Winsock in perfect conditions and sometimes if Winsock is not in good condition you may have problems . So you need to fix it to ensure it is ok

    Windows XP SP2 only

    Start –> Run
    type cmd and click OK.
    Type netsh winsock reset
    Press ENTER . Restart immediately !

    2. After reboot , reregister IMON by opening Control Center -> IMON and follow the instructions

    3. In IMON -> Setup -> "HTTP" tab -> Client compatibility
    make sure you set all programs to Higher compatibility except from your web-browser Firefox

    By putting applications in higher compatibility you don't lose protection . First they will again be scanned by IMON but in other mode and second , AMON is the most important protections which is working for you


    Edit : -> P.S. Welcome to Wilders ! :)

    Thank You!

    Thanks for the advice... but it didn't solve the problem. Could it be some conflict between IMON and ContentProtect (from which I also have installed on the computers? ContentProtect also lurks in the Winsock LSP
    and monitors/filters traffic through ports 80 and... 443 if my memory serves me right... I must see if I can exclude ContentProtect and try it out.

    If you temporarily uninstall ContentWatch's ContentProtect program for testing purposes, does the problem go away?
