I disabled the antivirus, I"m using Norton defense Suite. The difficulty has no gone away. I additionally have troubles with the home windows 7 filesystem not constantly updating the explorer window after document operations. I doubt this is related.

Frustrating... I need to go back to home windows XP ns think, this is my job-related machine.

Anyone have comparable problems?

I am utilizing TortoiseSVN and Elaborate Bytes digital CD-ROM drive that might be leading to the problem.

I adjusted the "DontRefresh" crucial from 1 come 0 in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTCLSIDBDEADE7F-C265-11D0-BCED-00A0C90AB50FInstance.Uninstalled virtual CD-ROM journey Hopefully this will solve the problem, will short article results.

Riiul, interesting...

Saw this post:

Suggests that mechanism (pid 4) has a lock on the exe document for around 30-60 seconds after each compilation. "Obviously i cannot shut under that procedure as that would close smss.exe." Then later he states he turned off applications Experience and also this resolved the problem.

Here is a blurb about transforming it off.

I to be going to shot this and also see if this solves the problem.

BTW, can someone note this thread a UNANSWERED? This has actually nothing to perform with antivirus.
