    Hi all,

    Am testing ESS Beta on 2 machines so far. On my desktop so far its been flawless.

    Installation on my laptop went smoothly (no reboot!) but when ESS loaded I got an error message on the main status screen "Firewall is enabled but proxy server could not be started. Application protocol checking will not function."

    I've attached a screenshot.

    Cheers,

    David

    A quicky to confirm I have the same issue after installing using both default and custom methods. I'm using a secondary Win2K SP4 using dialup.

    After much effort, I finally used LSPFix.exe to delete an old Wingate dll and WinsockXPFix.exe to reset the Winsock stack. ESS installed flawlessly and works!

    Unfortunately I now get a BSOD Stop Error after a period of use. It points to a DRIVER_IRQL..... error with the wanarp.sys driver. This is "MS Remote Access and Routing ARP Driver" Debugging this now; any insight would be appreciated.

    I have additional information on this problem.

    I did some experimentation and found that when I uninstalled PC Tool's Spyware Doctor (v5) I was then able to install ESS and it installed without the Load Proxy Server error.

    I then reinstalled Spyware Doctor. This went normally. But when I rebooted the computer I received a BSOD (STOP 0x0A IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL).

    This continued until I went into Safe Mode and uninstalled Spyware Doctor. BSOD went away and did not return.

    I have reported this to ESET directly.
