[6.0.1044] BSOD and Windows Action Center
« on: March 24, 2011, 03:45:25 PM »
I have two problems with this particular beta:

1. BSOD while trying to access Safe Zone.
I've uploaded the dump to the ftp server: Tech.Memory.11.03.24.7z.001 and Tech.Memory.11.03.24.7z.002

2. Windows Action Center stops recognizing the firewall part.

1. You have enabled debug mode in sandbox/safezone driver ;) that's why it bluescreens if it finds something suspicious. Have you used snxConfig.exe tool to enable this option? ("Enable assertion checking")

If you don't remember, please look at snx_lconfig.xml file (in Data folder) and set value "0" in "AssertChecking" key.

My settings are the default.
I mean, if I click default button, nothing changes.

Something suspicious... What is that?

Indeed, unchecking that option and the computer does not BSOD.
Should I do anything else to discover/correct the "suspicious" thing?

Any info about the Windows Action Center?
Please, don't say... an installation from scratch...

it wasn't a serious bug - there're lot of self-checkings in sandbox/safezone and this can be turned on/off using that assert checking. Useful for debugging or testing in beta.

The idiotic WMI feature gets its repository broken over and over again. Not recognized any more does not necessarily mean it's avast! issue.

I know that very well.
Any tool that rebuilt the repository automatically?
Any way to communicate with the WMI more efficiently and get antivirus/firewall detected?


By the way, now the firewall is detected... Go figure ::)

If by tool you mean a script, that should be doable. I consider the whole feature useless, with one of reasons being that it relies on the the horribly flaky/broken WMI thing. Heck, in fact it even causes harm - tons of rogue AVs mimic the security center junk.

FixWin can reset the security center

No Problem :)

It needs admin rights to reset security center (for when you use it ;))
