Ever since I installed NOD32 antivirus 4.0.468.0, I'm unable to use an FTP program which I really need called: WS_FTP95 LE , When I open up the program the computer just goes into waiting/hourglass mode and I'm unable to upload stuff to a remote folder. I already tried adding WS_FTP95.exe and its containing folder into the Exclusions list of NOD32, but it still won't work. Tried temporarily disabling NOD32 (red icon in the taskbar) , but same problem. I'm using Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (32-bit) Your help is really appreciated. Thanks in advance. --------------------- UPDATE: I tried installing the firefox addon: FireFTP 1.0.6, which in theory does the same as my WSFTP program, and again, I'm unable to contact and upload to a remote folder, so It seems the entire FTP protocol is being blocked somehow by NOD32. Any thoughts?
