Teracopy problem with avast (sf.bin)
« on: December 03, 2011, 12:20:16 PM »
every time I use teracopy to copy a file, avast is starting sf.bin and there is a big cpu-spike..why is this happening?

Another problem I had while copying a big file with teracopy was that sf.bin was opening and closing every 5 seconds, using a lot of cpu...I cant reproduce this exact behavior...normally sf.bin is just opened once and then closed when teracopy is copying a file...

teracopy can be found here ,   , version 2.27

avast free 6.0.1367, only running file system shield (no sandbox), webshield, networkshield, windows xp sp3

sf.bin using CPU picture (without avast team answer):
More info

sf.bin is avast emulation engine.
Which firewall do you use?

im using the windows firewall in xp...

I added teracopy.exe to the exclusion list in filesystemshield in avast.
Now SF.bin is not starting anymore when launching teracopy
