After installing spyware guard, windows explorer freezes up for about 20 seconds on bootup, then crashes & restarts. It apparently prevents two other startup programs from loading - the psfview utility associated with my OnStream tape drive (1st Safe backup software), and the ASUS motherboard temp / fan monitor utiltiy. If I try to start Spyware Guard manually by clicking the shortcut in the startup folder, the same thing reoccurs. Any one have any good clues on this one? TIA.
