    As the title says, (todays) Mamutu update completely locks up my XP Pro SP3.
    Anyone else experiencing the same?
    I guess there are more folks here who have used the recent Emsisoft free offering?

    in my case, Explorer is stuck, CTR+ALT+DEL does nothing.
    Only a hard reboot can bring back life. ouch!
    After rebooting I was immediately stuck in a lock-up loop.
    Using system restore, I managed to boot normally.
    Perhaps PrivateFirewall (or it's settings) was the culprit, I thought, but neither fiddling with the settings nor uninstalling PrivateFirewall helped.
    So I uninstalled Mamutu, rebooted, 'cleaned' the reg with CCleaner, installed Mamutu 3.0 again and after updating it; XP Lock up. Again. :(

    I am using Vista and found that Mamuto doesn't run properly after the new update. I get an error when it starts up. It gives me the option to continue or quit Mamuto. If I continue various applications don't work, so I have to quit.

    At least for me my computer doesn't lock up. I have sent in an bug report.

    No problems here (XP Pro, SP3) with what's in my signature. Emsisoft AM 5 (includes latest update) contains behavior blocker. I have had problems with different combination's. It is a matter of finding what workers together especially at kernel level.

    I've had something occasionally locking up my Vista SP2 notebook. I'm not sure it's Mamutu, but since I've disabled it I haven't had a lockup.

    After installing Mamutu again today and updating to 3.0.0.16, it's running just fine.
    No lock ups or anything anymore.

    'Solved', afaic.

    no lock up but have been receiving this pop up everyday

    "Mamutu must be restarted to load
    the updated modules. Do you want
    to restart it now?"
