OK, I felt a new thread was necessary for this, but I'll point to this one just in case it's tied in, in some way: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=183842 To replicate this you need Outlook integration activated - bottom of the advanced set-up tree. I am running Outlook 2003: I have the Find toolbar permanently displayed in Outlook, although that in itself makes no difference. Click on the 'Find' button on the standard Outlook toolbar to display the 'Find' toolbar. With the NOD32 / Outlook integration active, regardless of whether the NOD32 toolbar is displayed in Outlook or not, the 'Find' field will not retain focus. If I click in the 'Find' field, focus immediately changes to the first e-mail in the displayed folder, whether I try typing in the 'Find' field or not. 'Find' simply will not work. I couldn't quite believe that it was down to NOD32, but as that's the only thing that's changed on my system recently, I had to try it - disabled NOD32 / Outlook integration and, bingo, the Find field works as it should. Really, really annoying!! Marcos...?? Edit: For clarification, I'm XP Pro/SP2, fully updated. Another important Edit: Try it with any other Outlook toolbar, such as 'Web' or 'Advanced'. Same issue - wherever there is a field, be it an input field of some sort, or a drop down list with choices, the Outlook toolbar will not retain focus. Yet another Edit: 'Help' from the Outlook toolbar does not work - the main NOD32 window appears with the error message: 'Failed to launch help'
