I am hopeless, so I am here to find some help to my problem. As I have already mentioned my system simply freezes after some internet usage (no fixed time). Until now it only happened when surfing the web. If I work on computer with the network off no problems at all (worked entire day without problem). If I work with network on problems came up even without surfing the web.
I have already checked RAM and HD and they’re are OK. Well, I have tryed to unnistall some softwares that could be interfering in internet, but the problems persists the only software I kept was CPF. Do you think it’s worth trying unnistalling COMODO to see if it helps. The problem started near the Christmas (2006), so its a new problem. Long time running without this weird bug.
I think before uninstalling CPF, it would be better idea to set CPFs Security Level to “Allow All”. If the problem persists, then it is unlikely to be CPF. But, what type of freeze is this? Is it permanent, requiring a cold-boot to resolve or does the system defrost after awhile? Does the system respond to Ctrl-Alt-Del?
OK, forget CPFs Log. You’re unlikely to find any relevant entries in the Log because you’re forced to perform a system restart (Log entries will probably be lost).
It sounds a bit like some sort of conflict, but I’m not aware of any such conflicts between CPF & SSM or AntiVir PE. Also, as far as I’m aware nobody else has reported such problems. Please confirm which version of CPF you’re running. If it’s the release version, then you could try the latest beta as a stab in the dark.
I hope it helps. kail I’ve used Avast! long time before changing to Avira, but I cleaned all up after I unnistalled Avast!. Well, to say the truth I’ve used they together for some time (yes, I know DO NOT use two Antivirus together). It seems that after I unnistalled Avast!, cleanded all up and kept only Avira the problem rised up.
Little Mac the only software change I did was the previouly mentioned about avast and avira. I did a complete scan with Kaspersky on-line and avira personal (resident) scan. I scanned with ad-aware, spybot, avg anti-spyware and nothing found. I scanned with GMER, IceSword and RkU and nothinmg found.
Then from a logic standpoint, that’s where the problem lies… I know there have been other users who have found some “hidden” residual traces of a previous security software was causing conflicts. Avast! may have some drivers of which you’re unaware, or legacy entries in the registry, that are causing problems. You might see if they have detailed info about complete uninstalls in their FAQs, forum, etc regarding such things. Might also search your registry (if you haven’t already), for any traces of their software (not just on “Avast” but for any delineation of their name/filenames, that they use).
Well, there was some minor registry keys from avast/alwil and some Legacy keys from avast. I have deleted all of them. And now I am testing my system. Thank you Little Mac. I will post back later to report my findings.
Oops, no I don’t mess around with TNT. Unstable stuff, IMO. ;D
If I were in your position, I’d try a “quick” uninstall of CPF, clean out the registry, and do a clean reinstall (obviously rebooting in between each of those).
If you’re confident that Avast! and Antivir are gone and not causing any conflicts, and that those are the only changes you made to your system, that’s what I’d try next. (and hopefully, that’s the last you need to try).
Little Mac after some reseach I found out that on 12/24/2006 (December 24th, 2006) using Windows Update my VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter was updated. And now 01/04/2007 (January 4th, 2007) there is another update to the same drive (probably a bug fix). Well the system freezes date back to 12/24/2006 (the day of the first update). Fingers crossed!
Hi aeolis, these are just wild guesses:
 Try a registry cleaner like CCleaner. Best to analyze before deleting and backup just in case.
 Check Event Viewer for any unsual activity
 This isn’t probable, but do you think when you uninstalled the one AV that it also uninstall some shared dll’s or components from the AV you still have because you used both at one time?
Thank you very much! Thank you Little Mac and soyabeaner. After a hard and wicked work of “Bug Detective” I could trace the bug down to Network Adapter Driver update as I have already mentioned in the previous post. Microsoft and its updates :o! Well, at least they fixed soon enough (with another driver update :o) the mess they did >:(.
Sorry if I implied that COMODO was the culprit! I am really sorry! As always COMODO is perfect and the bad guys >:( are elsewhere. Thank you and sorry for any troubles. :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[
