Message 79823 - Posted: 30 Sep 2014 | 14:41:25 UTC

I just discovered that the random but infrequent stuck file transfers I've been seeing over the past month or so are being caused by AVG anti-virus's identity theft protection.

It's likely some kind of bug in AVG. The executables are certainly not infected.

If you use AVG, I *strongly* recommend configuring AVG to ignore the C:\ProgramData\BOINC folder, and also disable identify protection. You can't tell the identity protection system to ignore a folder, so you have to completely disable it.

Or switch to a different anti-virus product.

Someone with information on the problem files can point the problem out to AVG and they will fix their SW.

I've seen it happen on at least two different (very different) files, so I think it's more of a bug than any particular file. It also happens only once in a while, despite the exact same files being used for every LLR task.

The two files I've seen it happen on are the current LLR wrapper and 64 bit LLR client.

I was trying to get more files on one of my pc's, it crunches the PPS (Sieve) v1.40 (atiPPSsieve) files, and I too run the free version of AVG and it too had a stuck file. I ended up moving the pc to a different project. That was just before you guys went down so I just figured it was all related, now I am rethinking that.

I can confirm, KAV also causes file transfer problems, and not only executables, but big sieve files also.

Thanks I retired connecting, after briefly suspending AVG, and it worked just fine.
