I dont think I’ve changed my settings with CIS over the course of the last 2 or 3 months, or however long its been since the new CIS was available for download. Suddenly 2 or 3 days ago I noticed that when saving anything, archived files, pictures, etc from the internet (browsers dont matter - I’ve tried Firefox, Opera, and IE) but there will be a heavy hang time. Firefox usually says “not responding” and after 15 seconds or so the file finally downloads. I’ve also noticed that my Windows folders hang quite a bit as well. So after a full virus scan/malware scan with nothing harmful detected, I decided to start playing with CIS options. Turns out the Defense+ mode, when disabled, frees up EVERYTHING allowing me to work as smoothly as I did just a few days ago. I checked to see if things were blocked, and as far as I know, there is nothing. The pending list is clean. I’m not sure what else to look for to change to get this working properly again.
I’m running Windows 7 64bit if that helps with anything.
Thanks in advance
