    Just a heads up. I had a DC where I installed Eset NOD32BE 3.0 with Remote server. This pretty much brought down a Windows 2003 domain controller. None of the client PCs were talking to it. There screens would be stuck at "Apply Settings".

    I solved it by stopping the PowerChute Network Shutdown service and that immediately fixed the issue. I unstalled Powerchute v6, installed the new APC Powerchute 7 version and that worked fine as well.

    I do not understand how all of a sudden, installing NOD32, triggered Powerchute to cause havoc on the DC.

    Wow...I haven't seen this issue in a long time...but I remember when it was widespread....back a few years ago...late summer of '05.

    Actually this has nothing to do with NOD32...or any antivirus...this was a widely known issue back a few years ago with version 6 of Powerchute, an expired java certificate. The symptom was the server hung during the bootup process...applying computer settings.

    The issue was fixed by rebooting the server into safe mode..uninstalling the old Powerchute..and installing the latest version.
