    I'm writing this reply to maybe help someone if they run in to this problem in G-Data antivirus.I added G-Data to not be monitored by DEP(data execution prevention) in windows vista and that stopped the G-Data scan server problem on my system.I don't know why DEP was causing the problem,but when I added G-Data to not be monitored it stopped the problem.

    Hesus !
    I can't beleive there is no Ignore/Add to exclusions option, not even when restoring back from quarantine.
    Since it has fair number of FP's , without that option I can't use this product.

    fml. I like having 2 engines, but not having the final say on a "false-positive" file is ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ on power users.
