My workgroup setting is at the default.
Absolutly - this issue has been ongoing for a while now. My subscription is about to expire and I am now having to think about using a different product.
A simpe link to the older version would solve my annoying issues until a fix is developed.
I have made no chages to my Workgroup name.
i've also been having this problem with 4.0.467.0 - saving files in Adobe Photoshop intermittently results in a permissions error. some days i can go without this happening at all, other days it will happen every two or three file saves. retrying the save once or twice fixes the problem.
has the cause of this issue been identified yet? and are we any closer to a fix?
I am interested to know how other people with the logging driver are going. Has the error appeared since you have been logging?
No. I couldn't get it to appear at all. The log file was building ok, but I couldn't get the error.
So, I fully understand the frustration of the ESET guys. As a Windows developer myself, I know it can be a nightmare to find a problem if you can't recreate it.
Could the rest of us have access to something that will temporarily fix the problem? Sounds like the logging driver or the older version would both provide a quick fix but we have neither.
How many times do people in this thread have to ask? Marcos?
Just found this in the forums
The logging driver introduced a slight sluggishness on my system, so I wouldn't want to use that. The older version adoucette posted would be the best way to go.
Was happening to me also, on Win7 x64 final official version from TechNet, with Smart Security 467. I found 437 in my files and installed that on a clean install of Win7, then tested out saving files from both downloading them and from creating them with things like notepad, Word, etc. I don't have the problem on the 437 version, but who knows what bugs they fixed between 437 and 467, they might be important ones. My tests with SS467 were clean installs of both Win7 and Smart Security and the problem repeatedly occurred with things as simple as saving a file from Notepad to the desktop. Definitely some sort of conflict between Windows 7 security features and something implemented in the scanner in version 467. Think I'll stick with 437 until I hear some success stories with updated versions.
Good news guys, it seems we have pinpointed the issue. Could you confirm that the problem occurs when saving files to the desktop or to a folder visible on the desktop in an Explorer window? Most likely it affects only high performance systems when the OS detects creation of a new file but doesn't wait until it's fully created and attempts to gather information about the file even though it has zero size. This event is subsequently detected by real-time protection driver which locks the file temporarily. We have a workaround for this unusual OS behavior ready and I'll provide it to some of you who have contacted me so far. Once we confirm that the new driver fixes the issue, we'll make newer installers that will be put on the download page after they pass the pre-release QA testing.
Are you saying?
1) am i either try to save a file to the desktop or
2) i am saving it to a folder on my hard disk, but have an explorer window open to that folder, possibly minimized?
if that's the case, then in my case this is definitely the case and confirm that when the file is create and an error pops up, the file is zero bytes.
In my case I have only seen it happen when saving to the desktop. I'm glad it sounds like you found it. Hopefully a resolution will be available very soon.
Yes I am seeing this problem too and I have an SSD as my main OS drive so the speed issue could be at the route of the problem like you say. A second attempt to save a file almost always works for me.
YES! This is EXACTLY what I am seeing. I never noticed it until now. I was able to download apps and all sorts of stuff via Firefox with no trouble. I've only ever had issues when downloading to a directory which was open in an explorer window or the desktop.
I am yet to receive the message when saving to my desktop (although I have't really saved many things really, as of late).
Just within iTunes I have been getting the error.
I got fed up with this and removed NOD32 and installed a competitors AV/IS. However, when I did have NOD32 installed and was having this problem, it occurred within any program and to any folder I saved to.
Uhh have any of you disabled AV in firefox if the problem is when downloading in firefox? I found with it's build-in scanning it caused a huge hang when a large file is downloaded in firefox while using NOD32. I also wonder if Windows Defender is turned on with these Windows 7 machines... I'd nuke/disable Windows Defender...
Just had this occur with Firefox, saving a .jpg image to the 'Pictures' folder (Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit). Tried again and it worked though... It's happened twice, but I'm not losing sleep over it.
Edit: Defender is disabled...
Disable AV scanning in Firefox
change to "False" to disable it.
It's got sweet FA to do with Firefox, if you read some more of the posts in this thread then you would see it happens when saving files in many different programs, even saving word documents exhibits the same issue.
Yeah I see it doesn't... BUT it's a good thing to disable Firefox's AV BS anyway right !?! I'm sure the next build of Nod32/ESS will address these issues.
In my case, I was saving the picture in the picture folder.
I see it saving to any library folder. I am running a SSD so my system is extremly fast as well.
Windows 7 64-Bit
Would it help if people experiencing the issue post their system specs. Marcos?
Having an Explorer window open to the folder I'm trying to save to reliably generates the error on my system. I'm running a pre-release version of Windows 7 64-bit (build 7100) on an Acer Travelmate 6293 (2.26 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM). This machine isn't much of a speed demon, so I don't think this is an issue only for high-performance systems.
edit: I get it with three different browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera) but only when I try to save images or download files bigger than about 2K or when I print to file with Foxit PDF Creator.
