DAX & System error

ChuckChuck Member
edited January 2019 in SmartSDR for Windows
For no apparent reason at the time, I was getting DAX & System errors after invoking SmartSDR. Went through the usual drill of DAX uninstall/install with no joy. To make a long story short the  cause was the anti-virus program AVAST and their recent update to include a Sandbox mode.

Thanks to Tim at Flex for seeing the issue and getting me back up and running.

So if you see a little orange box embedded with your program desktop icon and your running AVAST you might have the Sandbox mode turned on. Click on it and it will disappear. How it picked up to turn on with SmartSDR I have no idea.
I am finding AVAST to be more and more intrusive and am about to dump them.
Score 10 for Flex support and 0 for AVAST.

    I've been running BitDefender with no SDR conflicts for several years now.  Rated pretty highly.  I'm sure there are other good products out there.
