Hi, I am an IT Engineer and have a problem with a number of customer's machines, all of which are Hewlett Packard WinXP Pro machines. I am interested to know how many other people are having the same issue. (I have had numerous emails/chat sessions with the Bullguard Support Team, but understandably, the're struggling with this issue)

Error condition is as follows:
The machines function fine for days (typically approx 3days). Then a whole range of odd errors start to manifest themselves. These include (i) WIndows error "this is not a valid win32 program" (ii) Machine refuses to start/run any programs (iii) network disappears & is inaccessible, etc, etc. I'm certain that the problem is related to Bullguard, as when the problems occur, if I exit Bullguard then the machine (almost) recover & function OK.

Rebooting the machine will clear the error condition - until 3 days has elapsed - then the error reoccurs (eg the machines are left turned on for this duration).

I have 3 machines at one customer that do this, and one machine at another. As I said, the common factor is tha they are ALL HP desktop machines, running WinXP Pro.

Anybody else having the same issue !!!!!?????
