    Since I installed new versions of PG and DW yesterday - DW has been unable to initalise its driver. THere is nothing in the PG log to indicate it is interfering but it is the only thing that I have changed? The event log shows DW as timing out on load but.... why?



    Anyone else having a problem or is it something else

    I had the same problem with 1.61 yesterday and I am still using 3.3. I finally shut down PG protection and had to reboot a couple of times to get the DW driver to work . Now everything is fine.

    Thanks - PG will not uninstall clean - says it is complete but seems to leave bits behind - no gui but some exe protection seems to remain or rather a diagloue pops up.

    Defense wall will not load its driver maybe PG - as I can't remove it completely.


    Are there any manual removal instructions?

    Check the Sticky "Upgrading Older Versions". That should do it.

    THanks but ...


    1) Reboot your operating system into SAFE-MODE. To do this Reboot your machine, and just after your BIOS screen disappears keep pressing the F8 key. A menu should appear, select "Safe Mode" and press Enter.
    2) Run Process Guard's uninstall utility. You can see this from the Start Menu -> Process Guard -> Uninstall.
    3) To verify the removal, make sure procguard.sys does not exist in (c:\windows\system32\drivers) directory, and that procguard.dll and pguard.dat are not in your system32 directory (c:\windows\system32). If they still exist delete them.
    4) Reboot your machine and Process Guard should now be remove

    That I did - except for deleting the driver - but there are stilll registry entries?

    Um don't think PG is involved in this - even on it own DW will not init with this build
