nProtect GameGuard

Q: nProtect GameGuard

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!

I think the gameguard error is also associated with the rootkit avg found but cannot remove. The rootkit changes name when I restart my computer. Also if any of you have an idea about the gameguard error: default setup error, close programs that confilct or restart the computer.

I have 5.7GB of apparently deleted files in the folder NPROTECT, found in the hidden RECYCLERS Directory. I want very much to delete these files and permanently undo NPROTECT. I expected it to go away when I uninstalled Norton Antivirus, but it didn't, so apparently it's a stand-alone program that was used by Norton but is not a Norton product.

I get error messages about "file already in use," etc., when I try to delete.

Anybody had this problem, or familiar with the procedures required to get rid of NPROTECT and put ME back in control for a change?

Does anyone know what NProtect is affiliated with? I assume, from the name, that it is Norton related and it could well be because I have Norton SystemWorks 2001 installed. Anyway, frequently when I boot up my SysTray will come up with only 2 icons: Volume and Microsoft Messenger Service. Clicking on Ctrl-Alt-Del reveals the problem as: NProtect (not responding). After I eliminate it by clickng on "End Task", then the SysTray resumes building. How can I eliminate the problem short of uninstalling Norton?

A:NProtect (not responding)

Hi cwilmot,
Go to start, run, type msconfig, click on the start up tab. See if Nprotect is checked. If it is close then find your Norton antivirus. Look to see if you have "Start auto protect at startup" checked. Hit apply and ok. Reboot and see if that works. I also use Norton and I think Auto protect is a good idea!

I have a hidden system file called Recycler\NPROTECT that has a gazillion files in it. Most are DAT, but there are some APP, LOG and JOB types as well. I noticed it during virus check but couldn't find in via search. Finally unchecked "hide system folders" and there it was.

Now..What is this for? Can files be deleted? Any info is greatly appreciated.


A:What is Recycler\NPROTECT?


Nprotect is part of Norton Utilities. (It replaces the default recycle bin.).
It prevents the user from accidentally deleting data from the PC and Recycle Bin.

I removed the resource hog, Norton AntiVirus 2003 from a Windows XP Professional SP1 machine at least 3 months ago.
(I now use Grisoft's AVG Anti-Virus Professional v7.0).

As many people are undoubtedly aware, Norton AntiVirus
(all variations), is an extremely tough application to completely remove from a system. Once you install it, it assumes the role of "Supreme Commander" as it asserts its unwieldy, elephantine carcass into the bowels of almost every facet of your computer.

I have been desperately attempting to remove the residual
sub-folder, "NTPROTECT" from Window's "RECYCLER" folder without any success. I'd appreciate any resolution to this problem.

Thanks in advance.

My hard drive is always really close to full, so I'm constantly checking for ways to get clear up some extra space. Every time I do a search, there's always like a gig of .MOZ files in C:\RECYCLCER\NPROTECT. I see that these are files used by firefox, but why are the accumulating in this folder so fast? I've been cleaning it every couple of days and it keeps filling up.

My best guess right now is maybe it's something to do with utorrent? I have utorrent running all the time, but I don't see what it has to do with .MOZ files?

Thanks for any help.

A:.moz Files Accumulating In Nprotect Folder

.MOZ are Firefox temp files from browsing the web. When you clear them, likely by closing your browser, they end up in your Norton Protected recycle bin. They are a byproduct of surfing the web. Nothing more.

Using Windows XP Pro.

I'm putting this in the Windows forum because no Symantec product has been installed on this system since the Windows, Program Files and Documents and Settings folders were deleted and Windows was installed fresh and clean.

All that is currently installed is Windows XP Pro and all the available updates except IE7.

After doing the above-mentioned, I noticed a 1.8 Gigabyte C:\RECYCLER folder with an NPROTECT folder inside it. Long story short, I converted the file system to FAT32 and deleted the RECYCLER folder in DOS mode (not a DOS window--full DOS mode). Problem solved--I thought. It was indeed gone--until I restarted Windows. It was back; but, this time, it was just 498 Megs, still an annoyance.

I've tried suggestions from Microsoft's Knowledge Base that didn't work and other suggestions from other sites on the 'net that didn't work, including but not limited to the following:

Then I went into the Registry and there are no references whatsoever to either RECYCLER or NPROTECT.

I don't know how to edit the disk or I would try that. Besides, I don't think I have the tools for it.

Any suggestions?

Hello there,
I recently attempted to defrag my computer but was unable to do so properly as there was only 6% free space. After viewing the report, I realized that there was folder called RECYCLER/NPROTECT that is the culprit. I did some internet searches and learned that others have had similar problems and that this is a hidden Norton file. I then restarted my computer and checked my memory and it seemed that the file disappeared and I had 65% free space. But, just as mysteriously, the file is back, and even larger, resulting in 0% disk space. I found a fix where someone went through DOS to locate the folder, but I'm simply not computer literate enough to attempt such a thing (the instructions were not detailed at all). Anyhoo, I'd like to be rid of this problem and was hoping that someone could help.

Here is my info:

Microsoft Windows XP

Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz
2.39 GHz, 448 MB of RAM

Also, I believe that I might have contributed unknowingly to this problem by using CLEANSPACE ULTIMATE, which was recommended to me by a friend. Only after running this program and wiping free space did I notice the lack of free space problem (I only recently saw the warning in the Forum about the uselessness of registry cleaners). Also, my Norton is not up to date, and have no problems whatsoever of being done with Norton all together. I was hesitant to uninstall Norto... Read more


If your Norton isn't up-to-date then it's not really doing you a lot of good anyway. I say go ahead and uninstall Norton and see if that gets rid of it. If it doesn't then you can post that it didn't work and go from there.

I uninstalled Norton AntiVirus a while ago, but forgot to disable Norton Protected Recycle Bin first. During the uninstall, I get the message "Uninstall completed. Some elements could not be removed. You should manually remove items related to the applications".

I've deleted all Norton/Symantec directories, run RegEdit and deleted all references to NProtect - except HKLM\System\Controlset001\Enum\Root\LEGACY_NPROTECTSERVICE which I'm unable to delete.

I've checked Services as well as the MSConfig startup, and there's no reference to the NProtect Service, so I'm pretty sure it's not running on the computer.

The problem is when I try deleting the NPROTECT subdirectory under the \RECYCLER directory on all drives. I get an error message when trying, saying "Cannot delete 00000001.: Cannot find the specified file". \RECYCLER\NPROTECT contains filenames from 00000001. to 00228842. with no filename extension, and even though the files show up in Explorer with size and other attributes, they cannot be referenced in any way with other file manipulation commands.

Does anybody have a solution to this problem, so I can free up disk space on all my drives by being able to delete the NPROTECT subdirectories?

Futher, an icon in my system tray was also missing. After some searching, I found them floating inside C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT with numerical names. I am not entirely savvy about where everything is supposed to go, so I made initial guesses about where they were supposed to be and sent a short handful to their new locations after renaming them. But there are still more in the folder I have no clue about. I had made an IM and was told it could be a virus, and to do an HJT scan, but not to fix anything.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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?

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

P.S. I believe that when I found this site & forum I found a goldmine. I bet there is a lot of good information here

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.

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.

Each time I start up a game that uses GameGuard, my PC BSODs before the actual game is loaded.
The BSOD that seems to occur when it happens is 0x000000D6 and the file that causes it is dump_wmimmc.sys.

I have tried uninstalling the games and re-installing them, which does not fix the BSOD.

nor did they name it using a normal convention:

I'm posting here because I'm not getting any response on the Virus Malware board. I play an online game from GamesCampus, and I had to install Gameguard. I constantly get error messages from AVG.
avwsc.exe encountered a problem and needs to close
Exception in modul AVGNT.EXE
I turned off Avira while I play this game, but I still get booted out of a game all of a sudden, with error messages from Gameguard. I tried several solutions from gameguard and nothing seems to correct this problem. Initially I thought I had a virus, which I still don't know. Then I thought it may be a conflict with my antivirus. Now I am so frustrated and don't know where to turn to figure this out. My girlfriend has the same set up as me, Avira free, and gameguard, and she plays the same game but has never had this problem. The only difference is she has ZoneAlarm firewall, and I'm using Wins firewall.

I am attaching the DxDiag report.

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.

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...

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?

P.S (Checked Nguard Stickies for this and didn't find the error discussed correct me if I'm wrong)

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
