OK! I thought this was a problem on my side, but today I had a pal test it out on his computer and the same thing happened, the browser shuts down on itself while running Trends online scan.

Would you please try it and see if the same thing happens to you and report back?

Thanks in advanced

Moved to Tech Discussion since its a discussion about technology.

PS, if it morphs into a discussion involving a problem with your browser, then we can move it to the Internet and Browsers forum.

I've used trendmicro successfully before, but it doesn't seem to be playing well right now. If you need to do an online scan, Panda has one here. Try that and see if it works.

were you doing the java based or plugin based scan? i got an error when it tried to update the "kernal components" during the java scan...but the scan is running now....where in the process was it failing for you?

I can only use the java based, even when I chose "I want to use a different kernal" (or something like that).

But like I said, this seems like it's not a problem on my browser or computer, as I've someone who lives 20 km away test it on his computer and the same thing happens. We both have the same internet provider, could that be an issue?

edit:

It used to crash when it got to a folder with a plugin from www.last.fm , I removed that and now it just crashes without even starting the scan (the virus definition loads, but after that firefox and explorer closes itself)

edit: in fact, Explorer closes itself almost before the site is fully loaded.

Well, I'm not experimenting with it anymore. It locked up my Firefox totally, and I could only end it via the Task Manager, and when I tried it with my IE, I lost my internet connection and had to reboot to get it back.

:whistling: wow, can't believe it went that far,
But whatever you guys were experiencing it seems to have passed over, i'm scanning right now and have been for 1.5 hours using internet explorer as people seemed to have the most issues with it.
Death to internet explorer :blink:
