I have AMON set to scan once the computer starts... with just my firewall (Sygate) and my maintenance programs (JV etc.) excluded. Problem I currently have is... on rare occassions whilst looking around the net... and using AOL instant messenger the same time... the whole computer freezes... completely... I have to do a power reset to get back running. So is there a known problem using AOL8 with IE6. Should I do more exclusion... maybe AOL folder complete... or maybe WINDOWS folder complete. Can AMON cause a computer to crash like this.
