    Just noticed when inserting a new USB flash drive into my computer running vista that NIS2008 appears to block the installation of the mass storage device driver to see whats on the drive?

    I have disabled AV, firewall, antispyware etc. but still no joy...

    Uninstalled NIS2008 everything is fine!

    Is it just me?

    I don't have any "new" drives to test this. I have a 2GB Sandisk Cruizer Titanium for ReadyBoost and a cheapo 2GB for carrying around (downloading stuff at work and bring it home, lol). Both are recognized and accessed with no problems.

    No problems neither :thumb: Have you made any changes in the settings that might block the installation?

    I just enabled the crimeware setting, nothing else. Very strange, everything works fine when NIS2008 is uninstalled.
