    pc tools 2010 bug *fixed*

    I had a license file from June for pc tools 2010 internet security. After the latest round of tests from av-test.org I wanted to give it a whirl.

    I installed it with default options. A few days later I was FTP'ing large batch jobs that had thousands of items. Filezilla gave me the memory buffer error and couldn't connect to work site. My internet was hosed as nothing worked. I am assuming this is a bug with pc tools 2010 IS firewall or intelliguard settings.

    So I uninstall and reinstall microsoft security essentials. Few days later, I think lets give it one more try so I install pc tools 2010 IS again. The same FTP problem occurs so I uninstall and reboot. Upon rebooting, my windows is "Illegal" due to not being a "genuine" copy. I am getting presented with "Activation Error 0x8007000D". I bought this copy of windows 7 from microsoft so I know it and the key are legit.

    To fix this activation error I had to boot up the win 7 dvd and run safe mode to restore pc to earlier point. If I tried restoring pc while logged in it failed.

    I am using win 7 64 bit enterprise version. Has anyone experienced this before?

    I think it's a problem with Firewall, I had this problem with Firewal Plus. It is being discussed in the PC Tools Forum. Since I reinstalled FP I didn't get this problem but a bug surely is there and they are trying to fix it.

    Hi Sadeghi85,

    thanks for posting the link. I went over there and read the forum posts and applied their solution and so far everything is working. This is why I like wilders because people here really help.

    Thanks again.

    cheers
