Dan:… one of his security apps was locking the file permissions of an item that WLC was trying to scan, so it put it into an infinite loop.
That’s exactly why I don’t have, er… clouds… of security on my boxes. Not bashing any particular ethnic group here, but there’s a certain jurisdiction south of Canada that knows precisely the pain Krusty was having: there is indeed such a thing as having too much disconnected security, they all fight over the spoils in the end.
I run VS and Windows Firewall, that’s it. Occasionally I’ll light up a malware scanner and sweep the system, but even then I have to tell myself “I’m NOT paranoid, I’m NOT paranoid, I’m NOT paranoid…”
