1st post here but I recognize some of the members. Has any one here had any experience with running F-Prot with NT 4 SP 5?

We are getting a considerable number of complete lockups since the WAN install of F-prot.

Hiya and Welcome

Not that well up on NT, but which version of F-Prot do you have? There is a 3.11 version out, if you have an earlier one. Also, have you tried re-installing the software?

Regards

Sorry, late getting back. Latest and greatest and this is on 11 machines with clean installs.

Hiya

Just going through my old emails and thought I'd bump this up.

Are you using just the one AV scanner, F-PROT? If not, this could be the cause. Also, have you tried removing F-PROT to see if the system still freezes. You can use another free one, called AVG. I haven't used it, but many here have:

If I disable it the freezes are gone. I'm running only F-prot. I can't put anything else on here since we have a coporate license for F-Prot. This only seems to effect the 12 NT machines. The 400 plus Win98 and 100 Win95 machines don't seem to be effected.

The next answer of course is yes, we need to keep these stations as NT.

Thanks for thinking about it with me.
