Nice repeatable error encountered trying to correct an undiagnosed instance of "Issue 215" by disable/enable button toggle. Upon hitting enable system bluescreens (with a nice pink square overlay for class. lol)
______

STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000004, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0xF78708C4)

pbfilter.sys - Address F78708C4 base at F786F000, DateStamp 4ac050d3

PB v1.0 - dmp, conf, and log attached

Will provide any additional info I can upon request.

Hi JaggedXJ, welcome to the forums.

Looks like you've got two issues here.  The first - peerblock.dmp - is a random app-crash.  This is Issue #24, we have a workaround for this in progress but it's slow going at this point.

The OS crashes though are not currently known issues.  Unfortunately without a system (OS) dump, there's really nothing we can do to chase this down.  If you could figure out why XP isn't generating a Minidump for you, then reproduce the problem again and get us that dump, I'd love to take a look at it.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you,

well the program crash happens at 5:05:5x everyday even with auto-updates now *turned off* for about a week. This did not used to be a problem, what changed? I have had my AVG scheduled scan set for 5am for a long time, and wonder if this is somehow involved because of the time? I run AVG v9.0.733.
In this mode of failure is the program still blocking IPs and the UI is frozen, or has it completely crashed and I am no longer "protected"?

I will get you a sys minidump as soon as I can generate one. It was configured for a full memdump and wasn't generating any. (have much more mem since that was set :p) Now set for minidump, but none successfully generated as of yet. (any ideas?)
Very frustrating.
Thank you.

What happens when you change the AVG schedule?

I shifted the scan schedule for earlier this morning and it would appear that AVG somehow causes PB to crash ~5m50s into it pretty consistently. O_o Hrmmm. AVG+ Firewall 9.0.733. Odd.

Are you running Threatfire (or any other 'on demand' scanner) along with AVG?
Is there some reason you haven't updated to SP3?

I ran threatfire for about a month over a year ago. Completely uninstalled long ago due to "issues" with it. The only similar sw I run is spybot s&d.
I haven't upgraded to SP3 due to low hdd space and the need to migrate to a larger system drive, from scratch, sometime soon. I would much rather have sp3 involved from the get-go then, and not have it mess something up on an otherwise 99.9% stable system.
Is there a simple way to find out if it is just the gui or the entire program that crashed?
