    I had to uninstall Nod5 on our bench computer today. Turns out when we use a external enclosure, or pop a sata drive with a boot sector on it into a quick docking bay ("BlacX" is what we use), Nod5 causes the computer to lock up. When ou right click My computer and select manage to bring up info on the new drive it hangs up and will not respond. Ive tryed using the gamer mode to remove the real time scanning, but this did not fix the problem untill we uninstalled NOD5.

    OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
    All latest drivers and bios updates

    2 different motherboards with same issue.

    Same problem, here.

    Any external USB drive (disk or thumb) that's plugged-in causes a system freeze.

    No release information has been given as of yet but our developers have narrowed down the issue to a conflict with a specific process that handles the mounting of external drives.

    Same problem here. Plugging in an USB HDD freezes the PC (Win XPSP3).
