    Hi all,

    I recently updated my video card drivers and now almost all my programs want direct memory access. I have an NVidia card. Has anyone had this problem with appdefend? Is there a video card setting I could change to stop this. When it happens, and appdefend warns me, my whole computer freezes for several seconds at a time and then I have about 1 second to click the allow button before the next 3 second freeze. It is quite annoying. Again, it only happened after the driver update.

    It has to do with your drivers iirc. Either revert to the old version, allow memory access globally, or just live with it.

    Thanks for the reply. Is allowing memory access globally really THAT dangerous?

    It will weaken your security obviously, but I cant say how dangerous it is.

    Sounds like the same problem that affected Process Guard (though it was fixed subsequently).

    Aside from reverting to earlier drivers (which may be problematic, depending on whether the upgrade was to fix another problem or not), the only other option is to flag it with Jason and wait for an update.

    This has already been "fixed" for v1.200+ of AppDefend, so once the new build becomes stable it won't be a problem.
