    EAV English
    (has happened too with EAV English)

    Lots and lots of warnings like for example:
    D:\NOD32 EAV 4\Version 4_2_67_10\eav_nt32_enu.msi » MSI » !_Validation - decompression could not complete (possible reasons: insufficient free memory or disk space, or a problem with temp folders)

    So far it looks to me that the cause is the MS Malicious Removal Tool of Patch Tuesday in November 2010.

    I have tried to narrow it down to what is causing this, spending a lot of time to it putting back backup-images again and again; this is now the fourth time I am seeing it (first time after installing and then re-installing the MS Malicious Removal Tool).

    It could be caused by other reasons: defrag in Safe Mode by the build-in MS defrag tool, or the fact that I still use IEClean 7 (formerly from Kevin and Nancy).
    But to me it seriously points to that recent last monthly MS Malicious Removal Tool.
    Without that latest MS Removal Tool, I don't get such a warning!

    I am wondering whether I am the only one seeing this.......

    This all happened when doing an in-depth scan with EAV.

    I am going to put once again a backup-image back, and then "disable" once and for all the monthly "MS Malicious Removal Tool", or whatever it maybe it called.

    I have absolutely zero time to look further at this: I urgently need to find a new appartment and that is far more important now for me.

    If I remember correctly the MS Malicious Software Tool only runs a single time during the installation process and checks for a known list of Microsoft Exploits. Once it has run, it's done...until next month. I wouldn't see how it could be causing problems once it's done it's scan and completed.
