Sygate Freezes connection for a short time
Posted on 2005-04-16
I have Sygate 5.5.2525 and bit defender 8 pro (with firewall running). Lately after i reformatted two data only (mp3 and temp drive... not the windows partition), I have had sygate allowing connections to the net .. then it pauses from between 2 to 10 minutes before it asks for a connection (when i clear the "app permissions" out) or regular net apps to connect (when set to allow).
I mention the partition item due to the fact that, thats ACTUALLY the same day the sygate issue started... reinstalling sygate does not help (even to a different version) ... i have had this one version of sygate and bit defender for at least a year ... no issues until now... i have cleared both app permissions in both firewalls, reinstall sygate, .... nothing seems to be helping.... i THINK the one time i reinstalled the network adapters, it seemed faster (sygate seemed to pause for a sorter time), but it still paused.... i am only thinking of reinstalling BD and updating network drivers from the net... i really dont want to reinstall them everytime i go to log in.... after the pause is over, all programs suddenly connect as if nothing was the matter ..
I have xp sp2 with a few post sp2 updates... IT WAS AT LEAST 1 1/2 to 2 weeks since i did a windows update, from the problem starting to the actual update, so its not 'i did update @ Q3233253453 whatever and the problem started)... ..
only two items to note that i did about the same time as the problem was as i said and 2) i ran Ms's Bootvis and "optimized startup" ... which caused its own problems but a dos prompt and "bootvis.exe -off" fixed that one..... just figured i'd say that to give you the most amount of info i can to solve the problem ....
thank you to all who reply (in advance)
