In case anyone gets this error it's because of NOD32. You have to disable it to run F@H without a problem.

    SMP client? Normal client? NOD32 is Norton somethingoranother, right?

    SMP client and NOD32 is an anti virus.

    Wow, I hadn't heard about there being a conflict with SMP and NAV until this.
    So, is SMP Folding running now? If you're a big fan of Norton, who am I to tell you no. If you aren't a particular fan, just install Avast, which is excellent, and free.

    Eset NOD32 isn't Norton AntiVirus. I used it because it was one of the better ranked ones but since my license has expired I guess I could look for another one.

    You should not have to disable the anti-virus entirely, but only disable active scanning on the folder that houses your FAH directory. There are several Anti-Virus apps out there that will always interfere, and Stanford recommends setting any AV scanner to exclude FAH directories to prevent IO_ERROR and UNSTABLE_MACHINE errors.

    Tried that when I first installed F@H. Still got the problem. I think that problem is specific to NOD32.
