I am running Windows 2003 Small Business Server and NOD32 4.0. Everytime NOD32 is actively protecting the system the CPU is spiking to 100%. I excluded all of the recommended exclusions, any ideas? This is causing the server to freeze / hang. SBS is running on a virtual machine, I can begin to log in with VMWare but then it locks up.

Try un-installing the software
Reboot
Re-install the software

Sounds like you are running SBS in VMWare. Make sure you have enough ram and good disk I/O

Perhaps there's some logging I can turn on to try to capture when this happens? Any Suggestions
