remove avast, it seems avast conflicts with hce after avast updated from v5.0 or 6.0
it was 1 of them 2 which was the start of the conflict.
Is this why my pc randomly freezes?
i'm honestly not sure, avast is suppose to be pretty fair on resource usage.
i take it task manager is not showing anything hogging?
maybe give system internals a run, it can show processes running which task manager doesn't always show.
@sargejohnson, i had never ran open sauce on this pc, that's how i can personally rule that out.
i think i'll end up removing avg and installing avast just to double check the outcome.
edit: just done some poking around...
i had an old screen shot of my own problem starting hce, with avast installed, the av was at V6.0 at that time.
just tried this...
removed avg, install avast ran hce no problems.
set scheduled scan to kick in and started hce, still no problems.
installed open sauce, avast running, hce starts no problem and still runs fine if i start avast scan just before starting hce.
avast running, xfire running, hce starts no problem, obviously removed d3d9.dll, or hce crys.
so with avast now at 7.0 i see no problems now running hce with it.
what about this new updated version of SAPP is this something you should be looking at?
also how long have you been using EMET?Edited by ally on Jun 21, 2012 at 04:53 PM
edit: just installed that emet too, i have no problems with all this running with hce.
sapp is the only thing i can't test.Edited by ally on Jun 21, 2012 at 06:24 PM
