    Hi all,
    Don't misinterpret me: I love NOD32, mostly because of AH detection and light resource consumption.
    But. In the recent few days, applications started dying. The Windows "xxx encountered an error and has stopped" (Send Report, etc.) dialog is a frequent visitor, and IMON is always marked as the culprit. Adding these applications in my IMON exclusions has solved the situation, but my browser is on the list too! I wouldn't like to switch off Internet monitoring on the Internet browser!
    List:
    DkService.exe (Diskeeper 9 Professional Build 515)
    Firefox.exe (1.0.1)
    svchost.exe (WinXP Prof SP2 + all updates)
    plus some who died only once

    I'm not sure about svchost.exe as the failed module is "unknown", but I am quite confident that IMON causes it to die too.
    Is there a solution? These poor fellows are all on "High compatibility". I trudged through the Eventlog several times only to find nothing.

    Also, IMON has received no update since 2004-07-08...

    Regards,

    I have the same version of IMON. Why does it need to be updated?

    I'd re-download the latest version, uninstall and reinstall. Also, are you using a proxy?

    Does your error log give specific info on the problem?

    start, help and support, pick a task, tools, error log

    -- should be the latest version.
    IMON doesn't necessarily have to be updated, when it comes to busting viruses this version performs great as well.

    svchost.exe is pulled from the list; it finally told me that ntdll.dll is the erroneous module. Imon has nothing to do with it. :rolleyes: :blink:

    As for the other processes, the error logs yield no further information than:
    "Faulty application: DkService.exe, version: 9.0.515.0, faulty module: imon.dll, version: 0.0.0.0, memory address: 0x0000ac45 (varies)." (Translated.)

    But! It is evident that ntdll.dll and IMON failures are two separate cases. They might be connected, but anyway ntdll has to be dealt with before I blame ESET. And the problems caused clearly by IMON are no more than a nuisance. So /to stop wasting your time on a case that's not even connected to NOD/ I thank all posters for their good intentions and will try to fix this box on my own. /When ntdll is cleared and IMON's still problematic I'll return for a good ranting.;)/
