Ticket #3370 (new defect)
VBoxNetFlt: Conflict with the Trend Micro Anti-Virus driver
|Reported by:||willyo||Owned by:|
After installing 2.1.4 + the USB driver + the network driver on my Vista
(with up-to-date patches) on my Sony VAIO laptop I get a BSOD every so often (1-2 hours) even without creating/running a VM.
(The same problem also occurred with 2.1.2).
After uninstalling and then re-installing 2.1.4 w/o the network driver there were no further crashes.
I've attached a minidump. I'm not familiar with interpreting Winows crash-dumps but I did try dumpchk.
The dumpchk output says (among other things) "Probably caused by : tmwfp.sys ( tmwfp+22d1d )"
tmwfp.sys is a driver for my Trend-Micro Anti-Virus so that's why I began to suspect some interaction between the VirtualBox network driver and other network drivers.
(I also have WinPcap installed on my machine).
The crash repeated quite consistently (4x in 3 hours) so if if there's any magic which might be done before/after a crash to get more/useful information, please let me know.
Having now read the manual in more detail, I see that I do not need the network driver for my setup, so this is not a show-stopper for me.
- Priority changed from critical to major
- Summary changed from Vista BSODs when "internal host" network driver installed to VBoxNetFlt: Conflict with the Trend Micro Anti-Virus driver
