Win7 x64, sp1, all critical updates. NOD32 18.104.22.168 I'm trying to troubleshoot a Windows msg "preparing to configure Windows" that flashes by on the screen for about .5 second when we reboot (both using the "Windows > restart" option from the Start menu and also cold boot). It's so fast it's unreadable. Although I have no reason to suspect NOD32, on the forum here the only possibly relevant message concerning "preparing to configure" that I've been able to find is: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=332920 (unfortunately that thread is way beyond my meager understanding) We have "Update for MS Windows (KB2735855)" installed on 9/15/12 Is there a way we can determine whether NOD32 in combination with this update might be causing this issue? Thank you.
