Hi megamind,

Do you have any other antivirus or security program installed?
Does UMPlayer start a video when you start the program?
Is it possible to find which feature in Ad-Aware that is responsible for the problem, by turning off one feature at a time?

Do you really have only XP Service Pack 2 installed? Windows then misses a lot of updates and is very easy to infect.

Megamind, you should also have SP3 for XP installed.

I have only ad-aware 10.1 and zone alarm firewall.
ad-aware 10.1 hungs UMplayer first time I have to use task manager to stop running umplayer process if i again run umplayer it runs fine.
Its Ad-aware 10 real time protection.
Yes I have SP2 I know i misses lot of updates but I don't have SP3 installer even Microsoft has ended support for Win xp.

Strange that it is only the first time you start UMplayer. You could try to reinstall UMPlayer and see if that helps.

Microsoft is still supporting XP with SP3 and you can download SP3 from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24
You have to change language, if you haven't an English XP.

As I said, you can download SP3 from that link. You don't need to use Windows Update.

I solved this problem by unchecking .ini configuration file in real time protection.UMplayer keeps your video settings in .ini files now i am facing no hangs.

Megamind, I would still advise you to download SP3 for XP machine. SP3 covers more than just all updates - it also has system improving reliability files. If you leave it much longer you will not have access to it as Microsoft are ceasing support for SP3 in April 2014. Support for SP1 and SP2 have already ceased.

I've had a frequent failure problem with Shockwave Flash failing in Google Chrome. It seems SBAMsvc.exe is hogging the CPU for no apparent reason. If I kill it via taskmgr things start to work again. What good is this thing?

Hi ThunderBill,

 

Check that you have the latest version of Google Chrome, 23.0.1271.64.

 

Do you mean Flash Player or Shockwave Player?

 

I suggest that you uninstall the player, restart and install the latest version.

 

The instructions for uninstalling Flash Player: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

Latest version of Flash Player:http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Shockwave Player uninstallation program: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/#sp

Latest version of Shockwave Player: http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

 

If that didn't help, please answer these question.

 

Which Windows version do you have, including 32 or 64 bits?

Which Ad-Aware version do you have, is it Ad-Aware 10.3 Free Antivirus+ or something else?

When did you install that version?

Do you have the Ad-Aware toolbar installed and/or other toolbars?

What antivirus program did you have before that installation?

When did the current problem start?

Do you have another antivirus program or similar program installed?
