    :oops: Group:

    While in a program moments ago, and only having one other open, I got -- again!! -- blue-screened with a Stop 0x0000007E error, amon.sys. Am using WinXP Pro, SP1, all updates.

    WHY is this happeningo_O? And how do I fix it? Does it have anything to do with NOD being set up to get def updates once an hour? Is that an option I should change to once a day? I have Zone Alarm Pro, and when not on the net, internet access is locked.

    I really, really need to stop this from happening! It's verrry disconcerting to be in the middle of something important and be blue-screened by NOD. Help!

    Can you please list all other programs that you have installed.

    Has this occurred just after installing another program?

    Cheers :D

    Nikheff, it's crucial to know what version of NOD32's program components you have installed. Please copy&paste this info from your NOD32 CC here.

    I run scans religiously and did C & E drives 6/3; both were clear. BUT---just for grins last night I installed Avast AV and ran it and guess what? There was a "Civil Defense.6672" virus in one of the memory.dmp files (or was it the MBR?). It was either a very new virus on my system or NOD didn't catch it. Anyway it's gone now.

    From info provided, I hope we can stop these BSODs!

    Wender,

    No offense intended - but your off topic post concerning Linux has been removed.

    regards.

    Have you just upgraded Zone Alarm?

    Sounds like a driver conflict somewhere.

    Also, how long have you had this problem?

    Yes, as a matter of fact I did do the upgrade to ZAPro 5. I've gotten several BSODs recently, but one was fixed by getting a hotfix from Microsoft.

    Did you have the problem before you upgraded Zone Alarm?

    Only occasionally. One BSOD was "IRQL not less or equal." I just now changed my paging file size manually, instead of letting Win manage it. One Microsoft KB article (216446) suggested that a damaged paging file could result in stop error messages, and said to set it to 0, reboot, then go back in and set its parameters again. Apparently, this clears the paging file. When I looked at the pagefile.sys file in PowerDesk, its size was bigger than the Win-managed size had allotted. Is clearing the pagefile.sys something I should do?

    In my case, irql not less or equal, (love those Windows error messages:) --)
    turned out to be bad ram.

    It probably doesn't hurt clear the paging file but, in this case, I don't think that is the problem.

    The new Zone Alarm has caused conflicts with many different antivirus programs. I wouldn't want NOD and Zone Alarm both scanning my email for instance.

    Speaking for myself, I would roll back to the previous version of Zone Alarm until all the conflicts are resolved with the new version.

    Is this helping at all?


    :D

    Yes, this does help a lot. I do have ZA and NOD both scanning e-mail, but will change to just NOD. Guess I could roll back to ZA prev. ver. if prob persists. Have read also that bad RAM could be a culprit and maybe I need to get two new sticks. Geesh, trying to pin down problems in Win is like trying to find a needle in a haystack-----it might be "this," it might be "that," but then again it could be something else!

    Post if you think of any other suggestions or possible solutions.

    If you still get those "informative" messages, come back.

    Windows is never dull and sometimes plain scary!

    Got two more sticks of memory installed. Will see if any more BSODs happen when working tonight. Will post if it does.
