Just to keep them all in one place let's have your problems with Beta 2 in here
I got a reset -no blue screen while surfing a page with a lot of flash files
www.tmz.com. Never happened before - I had done an ontop install - so I uninstalled, deleted all folders and did a fresh install - so far all ok
Firewall is malfunctioning,all the services are started and have done clean install.And 4 uninstall/reinstalls.
Just installed ESS Beta2 on my system (Windows XP x64 Edition) for the first time. Looks really good so far - I just have one issue with my E-Mail.
In Outlook 2003, I have a POP3 E-Mail Address, and my Hotmail address configured. When I open Outlook, the POP3 and Hotmail accounts Send/Receive mail with no problem (I was promped to make a rule in ESS - the rule was added successfully). By default, Outlook opens into my POP3 Inbox when started. However, when I click on the Hotmail inbox, there is a very long delay (~15-20 seconds) before the contents of the Hotmail inbox are displayed.
I have tried disableing the firewall and opening Outlook and going to the Hotmail inbox, and still have the same issue. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?
I have also noticed that there is a significant delay when ESS starts with Windows (~30-45 seconds). The ESS splash screen shows on the desktop, little or no CPU usage, I can access the internet, etc... there is just a long delay befor it starts.
Anyone else have this?
Hi! I have start a scan on demand today at 19:43 and it stopped at 46% on this file.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\MSDN98\98VS\1040\3RDPARTY.CHM » CHM » :ataSpace/Storage/MSCompressed/ControlData - is OK
Now at 21:10 it is at the same point with the processor at 100%.
On Windows vista 32 bit.
This afternoon I have installed Nod32 v3 beta2 on my XP HE SP2 partition and it happened the same thing. I'm sure it was,
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\ ......
but i don't remember if it was the same file.
PS:I have 2 partion: one with XP installed on and another with VISTA installed on
check that the windows firewall is not still activated. It was for me and this caused the delays in ESS Beta2. You will need to disable it if it is.
When reporting bugs it would help if you also reported what OS you are using as some problems may or may not appear depending on the OS.
Yes, noticed the same. Zero CPU utilisation. Yahoo widgets start, however they cannot access network (no update). ESS beta 1 worked ok. XP sp2
Me too. It's hit and miss. On Windows XP Pro the ESS splash often stays on the screen for 30 to 60 (or more) seconds before the icon shows up. Sometimes, however, it does not. Not sure why. Otherwise, all is working fine! CHUCK
same here, but no icons - just the wallpaper and visbily no diskactivity, than startscreen of ess comes up - never happened with beta1b
Windows firewall is off
This is on xphome sp2 german
No problems here at all. I'm impressed with Beta 2 and with the short (6 day) license for the beta - I think the final build must be close.
are you saying that your startup is as fast as before??
Definately faster under Vista x86.
ok, weird in xp is definitly slower than 1b - 30 to 40 secs
~Comment removed~ I need to post here again:
Anyone else who has slow startup could check how those two services are set on your xp system?
epfwtdi and epfw
In my case
the first is started - system
the second is started - automatic
I am trying the smart security. The startup splash screen hangs forever. I have tried a clean install and installing over the top. Anybody else having this problem? I have had no major bugs in any of the previous releases; I am on windows XP with FDISR and BoClean.
I unchecked "Networks drives" from being scanned in real time config and it seems to have fixed the splash screen hang problem for me (knock wood).
another pointer that firewall is making it slower
Anyone about the 2 drivers??
Thanx for the tip Elwood but it's still hanging on startup. I think I will give the AV only a go. Damn shame I was getting used to smart security.
The AV only is running fine now, seems much lighter.
With setting protection password enabled, you have to enter the password twice when you enter Setup | Personal Firewall | Advanced Personal Firewall Setup.
Thank you for mentioning this! I just kept thinking that I must have failed to establish focus with the cursor or something. This happens to me also. CHUCK
Same problem, Vista x64 here.
