    Hi, I have amon settings set at max and when I run divx videos I find a slow down on playback. On inspection of amon I find it scanning KGyGaAvL.sys (divx related) I would like to find the file and exclude it from scanning, however a search of my drives (checking *all* files) shows up nothing, any ideas please?

    It does seem to work, but how can the file not show up on a search when I have set the search to check each of hidden/file & system/subfolders? I have never experienced this before, if it is that easy to hide files then what else is/can be hidden without my knowledge?

    I don't know unless it is a temp file that deletes after use.
    I have divx on my computer and haven't noticed that slowdown.

    Are you using the max security settings in amon, Ronjour? What is your system, XP? I'm using xp sp2 and the problem doesn't *always* occur right off. Instead, occurring after playing 2 or 3 vids usually, however, since exclusion this problem has gone away. o_O

    XP sp2 here.

    runtime packers and advanced heuristics on. Regular hueristics are set at standard.

    You could ask support about this issue or maybe they will see this posting.

    I know for instance, when I get a large email video file now, it takes much longer to for NOD to scan the file than before.

    I solved the problem, firstly to view said file, I un-checked 'hide protected operating system files' in folder options (is this new to xp2?) then deleted the file. It appears that the file was then re-created each time I ran a divx movie, so I un-installed the divx bundle then installed the latest wmp divx codec and now all is fine! :cool: :D :)

    Hi Toby, this is not new to SP2, it is normal for Windows to protect the Operating System files…

    Good to see you had a result, some of these things are sent to test us ;)

    Cheers :D

    Thank you blackspear, I honestly can't remember it being there in previous versions, guess I'm getting old...Ah well, just 26 more years to retirement. :)

    It looks like I've re-discovered the wheel, for me anyway! ;)
