Gameguard Clash

Q: Gameguard Clash

Hi hi.So I play ijji's Gunz: The Duel. I tried playing Exteel (both of which games use Nprotect GameGuard). Exteel's gameguard would always come up with an error message, and as such, I couldn't play the game. So I gave up on it, and went back to Gunz. It seems the Gunz gameguard was overwritten with the Exteel gameguard, as the same error message now occured whenever I tried to play Gunz.So I uninstalled Exteel, reinstalled Gunz, deleted GameGuard, only to find that GameGuard is, in fact, a rootkit, and all that technical stuff is beyond me.So I deleted the GameGuard that installs with Gunz, knowing that upon trying to play the game, it would re-download and reinstall (with the hopes of re-overwriting Exteel's gameguard), but it came up with an error message saying:"GameGuard initialization error. Try rebooting and executing the game or close the program considered to cause a collision."Basically, I want to be able to play Gunz: The Duel again, without formatting my computer.Here are my DSS Logs:Deckard's System Scanner v20071014.68Run by Brian Collins on 2008-04-13 12:18:17Computer is in Normal Mode.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- System Restore --------------------------------------------------------------Successfully created a Deckard's System Scanner Restore Point.-- Last 5 Restore Point(s) --75: 2008-04-13 04:18:32 UTC -

Hello.I came home from work today and noticed that my computer was running much slower than normal. I noticed a new shortcut on the desktop and asked my son what it was.He had installed a game called Shaiya earlier in the day. A program called GameGuard was also automatically installed with the game. After looking into both of these subjects it seems that the GameGuard program is problematic for many people and I am now assuming that it is what has made the sudden change in my computers speed. It also seems that uninstalling the programs is difficult and involves manually modifying registry items. I am not comfortable doing this and I am posting this topic to get some professional help. The only other info in this forum I could find on this topic mentioned needing to post a HJT log so that is what I am doing here.Below I have pasted the following txt files per the instructions in the forum intro. I hope I have done this right.1. Kapersky scan results.2. DSS results 13.

I'm trying to play Trickster Online. It has never worked since I installed it a few weeks ago and their tech support never answered my email. It has this anti-hacking software called nProtect Gameguard. You have to go through its updating process in order to play. The problem is I keep getting error 380 and so it exits. Every guide I find is in bad English (nProtect is Korean) and doens't tell you how to fix it. I'm not using a proxy or anything. Can anyone help me out?

Read the title... enough said. I'm just curious how many people have thought "YES! NO MORE HACKERS IN *insert game here*!" Then, there are still thousands of hackers. The games I play, like Gunz, Gunbound, and Soldier Front are filled with hackers. Even Rakion. GameGuard does absolutely nothing... post your ideas here!

This is a heads up for anyone playing games that run Gameguard, such as Maplestory Mabinogi or Gunbound.
For anyone who read my thread a few days ago, my computer was crashing during gameplay of a few games, Maplestory most notably. The probably was diagnosed as and agreed apon by the responses as a Graphics Card overheat error, which concerned me as it hasn't happened before. I may now have found the problem, to which I would like to inform my fellow gamers.

The problem started when my girlfriend's brand new computer started having the same issue last night out of the blue. I decided to scour the web for possible problems with the game. I found a thread somewhere describing an error with gameguard BSODing when there was a critical error in the program. Doing more homework, I found out that gameguard's error handler is tied right into the kernal process of windows and activated a BSOD instead of crashing just the game. Wondering what could have possibly done that, I decided to check gameguard's website WHEN I remembered: I have other gameguard games.

I uninstalled them all(including maplestory) did a system search for gameguard anything and manually deleted it. Ran CCleaner to get rid of leftover files(probably was unneccesary). Redownloaded Maplestory and ran the program. It's been running(and still is) error free for the last hour and a half(twice as long as I've made it in the last 3 weeks). I was gonna try it on my girlfriend's compute... Read more

i play soldier front when is loading the game appear this message
"game guard initialization. try rebooting nd executing the game or close
the program considered colliton"

ps: i shut down my firewall reinstall again the game no works.
os: win xp

A:error gameguard 114

i dunno....maybe you have a file on your computer it doesn't like.....try scanning your computer for viruses......if you have a file that may look like a virus, as several hacks do so, sometimes anti-cheat systems will cut you off.

or you may have an external process it may not like...

i really don't know otherwise...
manually make sure all lthe files are deleted
and reinstall
..... i dunno otherwise.

As of yesterday any games that have Game Guard do not work. They all give me error message 114.

The games I play with gameguard are Grand Chase and Gunz. I have contacted my ISP, Dell and the game providers via help desk. My ISP and Dell said it was the game, Gunz said it was my computer, I haven't recieved a response from Grand Chase.

Now, I have tried all solutions I have found on the internet. I do not have a firewall. Nothing has changed since the day before yesterday on my computer. It happened over night basically, when my computer wasn't even on.

I do have AVG anti-virus, however that NEVER caused this before. I've been playing this games along side AVG for a long time. I even have AVG disabled when I play, it still doesn't work.
It is really frustrating me, and honestly I am really tempted to throw this computer out my door.

A:GameGuard Error 114

I would try contacting the game provider..........

and then again you could get bumped up to a level 3 tech that still knows less than you lol

Hi guys, I recently started playing Trickster Online again and was upset to find out that their version of nProtect GameGuard won't let me use internet browsers while it's running. I was hoping someone would be able to help me out and I hope this problem is fixable. Thanks in advance, and by the way I'm using my laptop.

A:GameGuard on Vista

hope this helps you

its the website for it where you should be able to download the program and update the game files from there (if its anything like battlefield 2 and punkbuster)

I dont play the game nor any games that use it but from what i see thats what I gather

hi all the problems i have occur with game gaurd on such games as albatross18,and rakion.

as for both of these games there was a time when i was able to play them, then gradualy i started to get errors and no longer could play.

rakion loads up the nprotect/gameguard then acts like its going to start but i get no screen or anything.then when i try to run it again it says "the game is overlapped,or gamegaurd is already in execution.Please try again after you terminate the game" or this "this is game guard initilization error.please try again after you re-boot or close any other program that may be coliding" well ive checked and the game isnt running, and no processes of the game or gameguard are running,and i also cant find anything that would colide with it.. some people said it might be spyware of some sort,but i scanned with 3 different programs and im clean according to them.

any help is appreciated thank you

ok so you've heard of gunz etc etc and how while launching Gunz.exe it also starts up gameguard.exe anti hacking prevention system created by ijji to well...prevent hackers, now dont say to shut down gamguard cause u cant run gunz without it. Anyways they've jsut recently upgraded gameguard because of some bugs etc, and ever since over 70% of gunz players have been experiencing FPS lag. now heres the link of the gunzfactor forum. its just to give u an overview of the main program, (already linked to the main thread about it) and everyone has already mention that it isn't the CPU of video card its something with the gameguard anti-virus, but maybe you guys might know?

Ok, so I go into any game with nProtect GameGuard (FlyFF, ijji Gunz) and I get the same two errors when GameGuard tries to Authenticate.

"Program Error
GameMon.des.exe has generated errors and will be closed by
Windows. You will need to restart the program
An error log is being created."

"GameGuard execute error : 114
GameGuard initialization error. Try rebooting and executing the game or close the program considered to cause a collision."

Now of course the first thing I do is restart the program, then reboot and try again, after that didn't work I closed all other applications that I could, when that failed I looked around and found out it could be a virus, used Spy Sweeper and cleared 3 trojans that AVG didn't know existed, and I still get the errors when I try to start the game.

My drivers are up to date, I've turned off my Anti-virus, I've remade accounts, and yet it still doesn't run.

I've played before, so I know the games work, but here are my specs anyways.

Have been haunted for a year by the following problem:

Within 2min - 10min of starting a browsing session, screen freeze starts at bottom of screen. Screen slows to a crawl, no inputs possible. Only way out is pulling battery/mains power supply (CTL+ALT+DEL doesn't function during freeze).

Using broadband and dialup, Dell Latitude with 256RAM, XP Pro and IE6 both with SP1 installed.

No problem with Netscape or Opera - but would rather not use either of these browsers. Unable to install previous version of IE due to M'soft loading restriction (i.e. detecting existing IE6 installed).

Any advice appreciated - thanks.

A:Clash between IE6 and XP Pro?

One tip - NEVER EVER pull out the battery with the laptop running. Press and hold down the power button till it turns off - maybe 5 or 6 seconds.

XP comes with IE 6.0 so you can't go to a previous version. You can remove and service packs from add/remove programs if you wish.

It would be wise to check for a virus and adware/spyware. Use spybot from this link. Don't forget to update it. Also if you don't have a virus scanner - go to for a free online scan.

There's also several patches to both XP and IE 6.0 after the Service Packs - make sure those are installed as well.

I am sick and tired of this worthless security software. I used to play Mabinogi, a Korean MMO from Nexon, and of course they use that infernal GameGuard BS. Fool that I was, I tolerated its presence since I liked the game more than most. Well, trust me, I paid for it. Who knows how much it has altered the registry.

Worse, it has disabled my keyboard! I use Vista and a Logitech Wave Keyboard. Once in a while, Mabinogi fails to load up and I see a white screen instead of the title. My mouse works but my keyboard is disabled and I have to do a hard reboot. Upon reboot, it still doesn't work. I switch the USB to another port... voila, it works. But it will never work for that previous port again!

I didn't suspect anything until it happened a second time. Now I have two ports on my PC that refuse to work with my keyboard. Any other device works fine, just not the keyboard. This is BS of the highest degree.

I can only guess that it has modified my registry in some way, but I don't even know where to begin. Can anyone help me recover the use of my two USB ports for the keyboard?

A:GameGuard killing my keyboard and USB

I've since uninstalled Mabinogi, deleted the GameGuard folder, deleted the two hidden files it inserted into my system folder and deleted a registry key to no avail. Someone has suggested that GameGuard is using an "input hook", which I've never heard of.

So here's this game Ran Online and I have Windows 8 Pro 32-bit.

I always get this error saying that there are programs that conflict with gameguard. I already allowed the game and the gameguard.des and gamemon.des in windows defender and firewall. And I also allowed the entire drive.

So any idea what would these programs be that conflict with game guard?

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 8 Gameguard Error

I am assuming Game Guard is anti-cheat software for the game just like S4 League's xtrap.

It is dangerous to allow the whole drive and I recommend you undo that. The bad news you can't do anything until they update Game Guard to work with Windows 8

Similar case happen with xtrap and within a month they updated to allow Windows 8.

I am assuming and I don't know Game Guard is thinking your cheating because it only checks the approve OS in its definitions list and windows 8 is not on it.

You can probably sent a email to the company or post on their forums or send a ticket to get them to make a small update to add Windows 8 as a approve OS

I think the actual game runs fine if it ran in Windows 7 just the anti-cheat software needs a update.

A couple of weeks ago, I installed wolfteam on my computer, started playing and when I finish playing and get back to the desktop, I cannot open any programs anymore, cannot open my computer or anything. When I double click icons, nothing happens.

I thought it was the game, so I uninstalled and reinstalled with the same problem.

Yesterday, I downloaded 2 new games, Huxley and Pandora saga, both games and wolfteam all come with gameguard. And all these games now do the same thing when I close them. So I guess the problem was not with wolfteam, but rather with gameguard, maybe I'm just jumping to conclusions...

I have over 50 games installed on my computer, online and single player games, and the only 3 games that use gameguard give me this problem.

I did not try uninstalling gameguard and reinstalling because im not sure if I would have to redownload and reinstall the whole games by doing that, Huxley is 4GB, I do not want to redownload if not necessary.

So to repeat myself, the problem is that I cannot open any programs, or windows or do anything anymore on my computer after I close the games. My desktop is there, everything is normal, I can open the start menu, but that's about it.

I tried to attach my Dxdiag file, but it wouldn't let me, so let me know what info you need on my computer other than what I will give...

I am new here and I have a problem. I have recently installed Cabal Online and after playing it I noticed something was not right. After trying to find a solution I have decided to uninstall the game and forget about it but then I found out on the internet that GameGuard, which this game uses, is a rootkit and thus a threat to my and my computer's security. I read you have to manually remove it from the computer so I followed some instructions. I deleted the GameGuard folder after uninstalling the game and I also found npptnt2.dll and nppt9x.vxd files but I can't find the place in registry all those people on the internet mentioned. Is it possible that there is nothing left of GameGuard? How big a threat is GameGuard really? Can you please help or give information or something? You would make a guy's life easyer

Did you ever have AVG Anti-spyware installed, if so there may be traces of it left either as program fragments or registry entries.

Possibly you could do ?a search for such and, if found, delete them.

I wish to set up my latest PC for Flight Sim work. To that end I wish to split my SSD into two sectors and have two OS's, WIN 7 and XP.
Under WIN 7, I shrunk the 256 SSD sector holding the WIN 7 OS and attempted to load XP onto the spare second sector. I know that one should have the older OS loaded first, but that is not sacrosanct and I would use a boot loader to switch between OS's. My second 500Gb HD would then be used to store all my apps and current work before storage off site.
However, when I went to load XP it flipped into the blue screen of dire warnings and said that it had stopped Windows because a problem had been detected etc etc.( I'm sure you've all seen it, but I have more details if required)
In the event that I should have loaded XP first, I would like to remove WIN 7 and start again, but don't know how do delete an OS that is in use. It sounds an illogicality!
Where, what or how have I gone wrong?

I have done the same several times. My method just involves using a Partition tool to mark the existing partition with windows as empty and the one I want to use as the only partition.

Hi I'm not sure if this should be posted in the games section, but it seems more like a virus is causing an issue in this case.

When I run Iris online, a new mmorpg which uses gameguard hack protection, nothing else but the game can connect to the internet. Prior to gameguard loading I can use either browser (IE or firefox) and they work absolutely fine.

However this all stops after I load the game, yet I can still connect to the game and it runs, but nothing else can connect to the internet despite being able to ping websites and that works and the internet says it is connected but never loads a page.

One or two times however I could run the browser and load sites fine whilst playing Iris and gameguard was running then too, but these times are rare and often when i close the game, the browsers stop working.

This only happens on this one game using gameguard, other times in the past playing other mmos with the same hack protection it worked fine. A simple way to fix this would be to stop playing the game, but it's a really fun game! Also another reason why I'm concerned and want to get to the bottom of this issue is no one else i spoke to on the game has this problem so it must be something wrong with my computer which I would like to fix.

Hi astroboy89, you are using two antivirus programs. Kaspersky and Microsoft Security Essentials. Only use one, because they can slow down your system and cause system crashes.

It just seemed like a driver problem to me so after re-installing windows and trying every combo of PCI slots I downloaded the reference drivers from Aureal. Removed the Monstersound drivers and installed the Aureal. Everything works great now even with some IRQ's being shared.

I'm running WinXP Pro on a home built computer. It was working fine up to a number of months ago (don't have a backup that goes that far back). Somewhere along the line I installed something that has slowed this computer down to a snail's crawl. Boot up takes forever and I think there is a driver clash going on. Eventually it boots up but when I run any program it takes forever for it to initialize and run. I ran spyware and antivirus programs but I came up clean. I ran msconfig and took out all of the startup programs but that didn't help. I even ran a registry cleaner but it didn't help. Some of the time the sound seems broken up but not always. All of my hardware shows it is working correctly with no conflicts. Does anybody have any idea of what else I can try? I've thought about uninstalling one program at a time but I'm afraid there will be shared files still lurking that might hide the problem.

Please read what we think about reg cleaners, it is bad idea:

Many other help forums will tell you the same thing - stay away from them. They can/will cause problems.

Is the hard drive to full? Need to keep 10-20% empty space.

Have check to see if maybe the hard drive is failing? All HD's will fail.

I've posted this under networking because that is where I see the problem but I'm told by the Mesh people that I've caused the problem by uploading AVG before I uninstalled the Bulldog antivirus that came pre installed with my new PC. Their only answer is to re install Windows 7 which I don't want to do as it's taken me a week to load all the software and applications onto my new PC. The problem is that when the computer boots up the onboard network adaptor fails to connect to the network. I can only get it to work by disabling the Realtek adaptor then enabling it again. I was aware that you should avoid running two antivirus systems at once so I did turn off Bulldog before I downloaded AVG but apparently I should have uninstalled it first! I've tried reinstalling the network drivers and updating them, no change. Any help to fix this small but irritating problem would be appreciated. Thanks

I have OS XP (SP2) and IE7. Whenever I am watching a video on the internet (YouTUBE) or one which I saved the system invariably crashes and reboots. I have sent "Error Reports" a zillion times and usually I get a different answer. The most common however are the ones telling me that RAM is at fault.The Error Code is this:

Hi lino and welcome to TSF !

Could you post your system specs ? If this is some brand computer (HP, Dell, eMachine, ...) then brand and model will do. Else follow the posting system specs link in my sig. Add the informations about the power supply if this is a desktop : open the computer case and give us the brand, model and wattage that you'll find on the sticker that's on the side of the power supply block.

Test your memory : Download and burn memtest86+'s bootable .iso image file using a burning software that can handle .iso files. Enter the BIOS at startup and set boot priority to CD-rom first. Leave memtest running overnight or at least do 3 full passes on your memory. It's advised that you test one memory stick at a time, removing the others from their slot. Report if it finds any error. Double-check memtest's results with windiag as it runs different tests.

Are you using some third party codec packs ? If so uninstall all your video and audio codecs from add/remove programs and install the K-lite codec pack instead. That pack is tested so that the codecs it provides will not cause stability issues when used with each other.

Many thanks,

Im 19 years old, i live in massachussetts, and im fairly good managing a computer.
Recently, ive been having this problem with GameGuard. Gameguard is a program used to prevent hacking, using 3rd party programs in a game etc. Ive downloaded 2 different kinds of games that have gameguard. the first is darkeden. Darkeden is a low memory, not very good graphics kind of game. Im running a Dell pent4 2.66ghz 512 ram Nvidea GeForce FX 4200 - 128. Whenever i try and start this game, after Nguard runs, it brings me to a blue screen of death, every time. It gives me the error 0x0000008e. This is supposedly a graphical error. maybe hardware isnt installed properly and whatnot. Ive tried a lot of different things to try and correct this problem. Ive come to the conclusion it is not my graphics card. Ive reinstalled the driver.. updated .. everything. Now lets move on... bear w/ me for a second. I also play another game called Lineage 2 w/ a few buddies on a private server. This game puts my graphic driver to its limits. Still runable tho.... Now letss move onto the other game. The other game is called Silkroad Online. I just downloaded this game and found that it has Nguard on it. This game also gives me the same error. If i can run a game that creates much more graphics, why wouldnt i be able to play this. Ive come to that maybe theres something wrong with some other part of my computer...

i've been trying to sort out a problem with a second monitor for ages, and having no luck. I recently installed a second monitor to my system and manged to get it working fine. I'm using an external USB to DVI Graphics Adapter/Convertor which is possibly the root of all my problems.

So, i got it to connect and i can move my mouse onto the second screen and move windows and work on it, but only for a while. Once i start using it, 5 mins later it freezes up and i can't fix it! My primary monitor still functions though, so i just have to leave it. But if i leave it sitting there and not using it, it seems to be fine.

From what i can gather from various other internet searches it might be a clash of drivers. I've tryed re-installing drivers and checking all the properties and everything says 'working properly', which is annoying as it clearly isn't.

Any clue please?

I discovered that Windows 7 came with preinstalled program "Windows Defender" however it it turned off by default. I am running Norton AntiVirus on my computer and wonder if activating Windows Defender will cause problems. I know you shouldn't install two Antivirus programs on the same computer but I am not familiar with Windows Defender or how it operates.

A:Does Windows Defender in W7 Clash with Norton?

Windows Defender is not an antivirus program. It's crap anyway, so there's no need for it to auto-load and run. Unfortunately, it can't be uninstalled because it comes as part of Vista and 7.

Go into Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - Startup(tab), uncheck MSASCui, then click Apply - OK - Exit Without Restart.

Next, go into Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK, double-click Windows Defender to open its properties window, change "startup type" to Manual, then click Apply - OK.

Next, restart the computer.

I recently downloaded a trial of ZoneAlarm Pro Firewall 7.0. I liked the product very much but it has knackered my beloved BitComet 0.91! Curses!

Since I've installed ZA firewall BitComet has been crippled (it usually downloads at around 70-80kb/sec max.) it's max DL rate is now around 10kb/sec.

1. Initially, I tinkered with ZA setup to see if BitComet was not trusted/authorised to access the web but everything that the ZA control panel showed me was positive i.e. confirming to me that BC had full access to the web.

2. In desperation I uninstalled ZA which did not fix the problem.

3. I have resorted to restoring my PC to an earlier point, pre-ZA - still no joy.

4. I have DL'ed most recent BC - still no result.

I guess ZA has somehow blocked the required ports that BC used to use, and now I'm left with rubbish DL speeds. Please help!

When I shift-right-click the items and try to rename them, I get "There's already a file with the same name in this location". No idea what that location might be! If I did, I could just delete the duplicates. Anyway, everything works, but that "(2)" is aesthetically displeasing. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it?

For years I have been using Norton Antivirus as it came with the computer. Norton recently expired and I changed to a new ISP which included Avast on the startup disk. I installed Avast but ever since have got this message on startup:

avast: Incompatible AV Software Running

avast! detected that the following program is running: Norton Antivirus/Symantec Antivirus

The on-access scanner module of this program and the on-access scanner of avast! CANNOT be active at the same time.

As a result, the avast! main on access scanners - Standard Sheld, P2P Shield and Instant Messaging Shield - were disabled.Click to expand...

The problem is after turning off Norton I cannot work out how to activate the 3 disabled scanners, and as a result I have been using the old Norton and a partially activated Avast together. Yesterday I had a trojan infection which now seems to be removed, and I think this antivirus clash may have contributed.

When I turn off Norton, do the disabled Avast scanners automatically turn on? How can I be sure? All help very much appreciated.

For the past few months I've noticed that my internet browsing is noticeable slower - sometimes in Firefox it takes 15 minutes to download a 10 MB file! - and at times my program-loading speed is much slower as well. This more or less correlates with when I accidentally allowed my free Comodo Firewall to update itself to a more robust version which contains antivirus scanning, sandbox, etc. as well as some PUP bundles. However, I already have Avast antivirus running with file system / web shields, "DeepScreen", "Home Network Security", etc., though the free version doesn't have sandbox capabilities.
Now that the newer Comodo is acting more antivirus-y, could it and Avast be clashing with each other and possibly be contributing to slower browsing? If so, do I have to uninstall one of them and switch to a different combination of firewall + AV, or is there something I can do with settings?

A:Does updated Comodo clash with Avast AV?

Hi shinra
It looks like you allowed COMODO Firewall to install COMODO Antivirus when it was updating itself. Having more than one Antivirus installed at the time on a system can cause system conflict and instability. You should only have one Antivirus product installed at all time on a system. You can supplement it with Antimalware since they are made to run alongside Antivirus, but not another Antivirus product. I suggest you to go in your list of installed programs, uninstall every COMODO programs and then re-download COMODO Firewall and reinstall it. If you think that COMODO Firewall is annoying or creates conflicts with avast!, you can always use the Windows Firewall, in-built, which is good enough to fit your network protection needs, assuming that you are running Windows 7 or more recent.

Hi, you guys helped me save this computer from a string of really annoying BSODs a year ago and it's been great since, although I can't seem to find the actual thread. Anyway I've been trying to play this game, Phantasy Star Online 2

However, every time I try to start it and GameGuard finishes initializing/updating, I get a BSOD. The actual BSOD that pops up doesn't say the actual error message, but from BlueScreenView, it says PAGE_FAULT BEYOND_END_OF_ALLOCATION.

This is a BSOD that can be reproduced every time I start the game, although I recently did a system restore to before GameGuard was installed and thus deleted the later mini-dumps, but I still have one from an earlier attempt 11 days ago. Other than the PSO2 BSODs, this computer has had zero problems, especially when playing other games like Warframe and Path of Exile.

I can kinda guess and say that GameGuard is to blame, but I'd like an expert opinion on what is behind these BSODs, and if possible, try and get this game working so I can play.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I was able to play this game on this same PC when it had Vista, before I upgraded to Windows 7.

So after not playing for awhile I decided to redownload everything and after that I got a problem.

(Excluding the fact DC is now owned by GC and my lvl 50 account was deleted >.>)

After you press play and it goes through Nguard and does it's normal installation of files as soon as that opens windows 7 comes up with the error you usally get when application stops working.

"Nguard Game Launcher has stopped working, Attempting to fix and find solutions"

It does not do this anymore but it does come up with the image I have said with the error 3221225477.

Just to inform some of you who do not know what NGuard/GameGuard is, it is a game protection application that is ran to PREVENT hacking the game so it's not the game that doesn't work it's the NGuard/GameGuard that is not updating or causing something to stop. Again this is something that's force-runned via game start this is the problem I am having not with Drift City the game.

Now I don't know whether Windows is stopping it or it's not updating properly I'm not sure.

Something in Windows 7 is causing the program to stop processing.. Has anyone else had this same problem specifically and fixed it?

I tried to install NOD-32 and Comodo firewall, but the internet stopped working. i called roadrunner and they said that the 3rd party security apps were causing the problems because roadrunner is already protected. can anyone verify this? or are they just BSing me?

I have a problem with Windows Media Player and Paltalk running simultaneously. I used to be able to play WMP for accompaniment via MP3's whilst singing in Paltalk music rooms. Now, whenever I try to use both, Paltalk will override WMP in that noone can hear the music but they hear me OR they hear the music but NOT me.
When I try to use WMP on Paltalk, a message comes up saying they both use the same WAV files and only one application can use it at a time.
I am running Win98 and using WMP vs.7.
Is there any way that I can get BOTH to run simultaneously and have the music and my voice heard together?
I have a basic soundcard - VIA PCI Audio Controller.
I also tried to run Holder so I can play both but it will not activate. I have errors coming up as MSVBVM60.DLL file is missing and OLEAUT32.DLL is out of date and needs a newer version. Paltech sent those two files to me and I installed them in Systems but it still won't work, and when I check Systems, the files aren't there anymore. I have them saved to my desktop as well.
If anyone knows how to get around this problem, any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

Today i downloaded online armour
After installing, the program rebooted my computer. Following the reboot, it tried to go into learning mode "for two minutes". However 14 seconds after starting, a blue screen appears, then my computer restarts before I have a chance to read the blue screen. I allowed it to continue this cycle for four reboots, but there was no sign of stopping the crashes. So the next time it crashed and rebooted, I enter Safe Mode.

In Safe Mode, I uninstalled Online Armor, then did a clean reinstall. However, the same thing happened - learning mode, blue screen/crash, reboot, repeat....

Once again, in Safe Mode, I repeated the deletion and clean reinstall. This time, at the end of the install, when it allowed me to configure the program, I unchecked the box on the general tab that said (something like) "Launch when computer starts". This time OA did not automatically start after the reboot. So I waited a few minutes, then started OA. This time, the learning mode completed successfully, and OA began monitoring.

Thinking everything might now be fine, I rebooted the computer. This time, learning mode did not start (as expected because it completed last time) and OA did start. However, 10 seconds later a blue screen appeared and the computer crashed. It repeated this process several times until I restarted in Safe Mode and uninstalled OA.

What is wrong and how do I fix it????

Uninstall Online Armour; there are plenty of alternatives. I recommend Comodo Internet Security suite (just the firewall).

I'm having problems with my Norton Anti-Virus. It's driving me mad because every couple of minutes, sometimes seconds, its blocking 'unauthorised access'.

In the activity it says 'Unauthorized access blocked (Open Process Token)'

It says the actor is c:\program files\dellsupport\dsagnt.exe

and the target is 'c:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\Egine\\ccSvcHst.exe

What's going on? Norton is just constantly churning away in the background and slows things down occassionally - please tell me its a simple case of disabling something and not a horrid virus!!!

I'm completely computer illiterate so answers in simple language please!!

Many Thanks!

Hi there,

I have a USB switch to which my printer is connected, and then through the switch, connected to two PCs - so quite simply I can switch the printer connection between the PCs without having to get up and physically move the printer USB cable! This worked fine...

I then got myself an external HDD (USB, Western Digital My Book 250GB NTFS) which is connected just to one PC through a normal USB - no switcher involved.

On boot of the pc with the external drive, all is fine - the HDD is connected and everything is hunky dory. However, when i switch the printer to this pc too (ie hotkey it so it's connected to here rather than other pc), the computer drops the connection to the external drive. It can still "see it" in explorer, but i can no longer see the file structure inside, or write to the disk. The printer also doesn't work properly.

It is very strange since the external drive is using a totally different USB port from the printer and the usb switch has nothing to do with the usb drive...

Is there likely to be some kind of clash going on when both the external drive and the printer is connected to this pc causing both to bottom out? One other thing, the printer has it's own "external drive" when connected to pc as it has card readers.

Any thoughts most appreciated,

cheers in advance,


PS running xp sp2.

A:Clash between external usb drive and usb switch to printer...

USB devices are "enumerated" and I suspect that this is not being accomplished correctly by the USB switch, which may then cause a device clash with the external drive.

Something is behaving in a non-standard manner, and I would bet on the switch being the contributor (as its probably handling the change-over very differently to unplugging and plugging into the other PC, which the USB system expects)

Hi, at school we have a BYOD. I got my sister's old Acer Aspire E1-571. I have the Eset smart security antivirus. I have windows 8 which I am NOT familiar with. My Computer is not letting me connect to the school wifi so i can't go on the internet to do my work. The computer guy at school said that it was my antivirus and that he could put on the free microsoft one instead. so he did. I don't know if he uninstalled my old antivirus at the same time. I really need help so I can start my school work. BTW my school is over an hour away so i have no chance of connecting to their wifi to test. This has to be a guarantee. Thanks so much.

Hi normally my internet works fine, that is I can connect to pages and they load without trouble in both firefox and internet explorer or anything else that uses the internet.

However, I recently downloaded a new game called IRIS online which uses a hack protection called gameguard which apparently acts like a rootkit.

Now whenever I run the game, it will connect to the game but restricts anything else that uses the internet from working. So when the game is running, I can ping sites and still get a response as the internet is still connected, but pages never load in internet explorer or firefox until I reboot the computer.

A reboot fixes it and there is nothing else that is wrong with my connection (afaik) other than that when gameguard runs, nothing else wants to work.

Apparently other people are fine with gameguard and it doesn't affect them at all so I'm looking for some help as to why it stops my internet from working!

If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it thanks

This may sound a stupid question but can these two clash??

After a fresh reinstall windows installed the Intel graphics accelerators then i installed my nvidia drivers for my Gforce 9400gt(not the best)
my monitor kept turning off on its own

Ive run dozens of tests and everything is reported as working properly
i uninstalled the intel drivers but the igfxsvc module was stilll running
even when i ended the process it would run again and it didnt appear in services
this is part of Intel and nothing to do with my nvidia drivers

I was wondering if a clash may of been causing the issue??

Hey guys, always when I play a game which GameGuard has been put to prevent hacks, it always comes up with this Windows Host Process Error. When GameGuard launches, an error pops up and says "Host process has stopped working and will close". The game still works but I'm wondering if this is a problem. It seems nothing is affected by this error, however I would still like to get rid of it because it basically spams my event log with a bunch of error logs. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium.

Interaction (interface?) between a Sabrent USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Hard Drive Adapter Product Code: USB-DSC5 and my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I am having an issue with the following situation:
When connected to IDE Drives Maxtor and Western Digital, and through the usage of Windows 7 it tellls me that the Hard Drive "is not ready". Is that a message originated by the Windows 7 software?
If so how do I go about "getting the disk ready" so i could change disk type or number or sizes of each partition and/or reformat?
I would appreciate your support to help me solve this unexpected report from the Windows 7 interaction with this adapter and the Hard Drives it holds, 40 GB and 80 GB IDE drives Maxtor and Western Digital. I am trying to use Windows (or some other third party software) to resize the partitions, change the disk type and eventually reformat.

Thank you kindlly

I have Toshiba satellite L300 upgraded from Vista to Windows7 which now freezes on windows welcome screen...only if the charger is plugged in at start-up. NO problems on battery alone.No problems in safe mode. If running on battery alone all is fine until plugging in charger and screen will freeze full blue,white, black or any colour screen.All indicator lights show normally but the only way out is a hard shutdown.The battery charges normally. The charger is fine and I get same fault with a new identical charger for that laptop.
The power input plug and wiring all the way to the mother board are sound(re-soldered joints) and correct voltage is seen at MB.
Same problem persists with alternate hard drive.
All drivers are as up to date as I can find. Including Bios -Insyde H2O

Toshiba technicians say they have not heard of such problems.They should search the web as it is rife with similar stories.They suggest a new motherboard should solve my dilemma.

Main email account iin Outlook 2010 is POP3 with 50+ rules for distributing email into folders. Attempted to set up a secondary account which is an Exchange account. No rules needed for this account; volume will b v low.

Rules set up for the POP3 account are being applied to both the POP3 and Exchange accounts. Exchange account is rejecting rules and declaring them invalid. From main email menu in Outlook, going to Rules and then Manage Rules and Alerts, I can see that the rules are being applied to both accounts. I cannot see how to get rid of the Exchange account in Manage Rules and Alert.

I have dropped the Exchange account till I can get advice on this, and will have to restart set up of Exchange account but hopefully with some guidance on how to avoid over zealous application of rules beyond the POP3 account for which they are intended. My Hotmail account is unaffected.
