  1. Hello Jesse, I have a few questions regarding this issue. [list] [*]Could you list the security software (AV, Firewall etc) you have installed [*]Which Ad-Watch features are enabled. (Files, Processes, Registry, Network) [/list] I would greatly appreciate if you would test the following on your machine (you do not have to have Ad-Aware installed): ([b]Warning: your computer could potentially crash[/b]) [list=1] [*]Download and "install" Process Explorer (Latest version 14.11) from [url=""]here[/url] [*]Start Process Explorer with Administrator rights [*]Press Control + H to enable handle view [*]Find a process named 'System' (should have PID 4) and click it. [*]Thats it, please report any problems you encounter doing this. [/list] Thanks /Andreas - Developer
  2. [quote name='fp525' post='123599' date='Nov 9 2010, 06:07 AM']Thanks for testing. The Blue Screen occurs using the Process Explorer method for me too. I have also updated Online Armor to the latest version as well (, where it still occurs.[/quote] Thanks for the verification. I have found what I believe is the cause of this crash and notified Online Armor (emsisoft) about it. (Edit: [b]Online Armor have released a software update that fixes this issue[/b]) Regards, Andreas

[b]log from the output of Handle.exe[/b] [attachment=8384:handles.log][/quote] Hello fp525, Thanks for the information. I could reproduce your crash on my test machine. At the first indication it seems this crash is related to Online Armor's driver, I could crash my test system even without installing/using Ad-Aware by doing the following ([b]Warning, your computer will most likely crash[/b]): [list] [*]Install Online Armor unless its already is installed [*]"Install" [url=""]Process Explorer[/url] (Latest version 12.04) [*]Start Process Explorer with [b]Administrator rights[/b] [*]Press [b]Control + H[/b] to enable handle view [*]Find a process named '[b]System[/b]' (should have PID 4) and click it. This causes my test system to crash. [/list] However, I'm investigating this issue further and will contact Online Armor if it ends up being a problem with their driver. Thanks. /Andreas - Developer
  4. [quote name='fp525' post='123500' date='Nov 3 2010, 07:30 AM']I am also having similar problems (see [url=""]this topic[/url]) - main difference is that it occurs [i]every[/i] time I start up Ad-Aware. I can't recall if it's caused by KernExplorer64.sys, though. Attached is one of the crash minidumps, if needed. [][/quote] Hello fp525, This crash is not the same as the previous one posted. Could you provide me with some additional information? like the following :[list] [*]List of security software (AV, Firewall etc) you have installed. [*]List of applications creating volume drives (like G:, X: etc), for example TrueCrypt. [*]And most important a log from the output of Handle.exe created by SysInternals. Download [url=""]here[/url] and extract handle.exe. Start a command prompt (cmd.exe) and change to the directory where you have handle.exe and then type: [b]handle.exe -a >handles.log[/b] then please attach the file handles.log. [/list] Thanks /Andreas - Developer
  5. [quote name='SvenB' post='123331' date='Oct 22 2010, 04:19 PM']I have the same problem... [/quote] Thanks for that crash dump! I will post when I know when a fix for this issue will be released. /Andreas - Developer
  6. [quote name='des_eagle' post='123291' date='Oct 20 2010, 01:55 AM']Occasionally (once a week or so) I get a BSOD with stop code 0x50 (page fault in nonpaged area) that references the file KernExplorer64.sys, which is the driver for Ad-Aware. I am using Ad-Aware Free, the newest version. I don't seem to see any correlation with any programs. It has crashed on idle, during video games, and during regular usage, but I am never actively scanning or running Ad-Aware when it happens. Is this a 64-bit problem? The error message suggests it is a memory problem, but I passed memtest86 and it ONLY happens with this specific file. I feel like my best option is uninstalling and waiting to see if it happens again, but I'd rather not lose the protection. Any thoughts? Thanks.[/quote] Hi des_eagle, It would be very valuable for me to have a look at that crash dump. Depending on its size, maybe you could attach it to this post? Thanks - Andreas - Developer
