Hello,

I'm using Windows XP SP2 on a Athlon64 3000+. I use Look 'n Stop (LnS) as my firewall. Look 'n Stop has an interesting feature: Watch Thread Injection (WTI). WTI prevents malware from injection some code into the thread of other programs. The malware is using that method to connect to the internet (because normal a fireall would block unknown programs, but not very common programs like Internet Explorer).

The problem is, that at the moment I enable both features (NX-bit and WTI), my computer crashes. A blue screen appears as soon as I start LnS. I can disable WTI, or disable the NX-bit, to prevent the blue screen from appearing.
I have two questions:
1) Is a solution provided by AMD available?
If no:
2) Which of the two features should I disable?

i'd disable WTI and use Mozilla Firefox. it doesnt get injected with malware like IE does.

Why should AMD fix incompatable software? It won't be compatable with Intel chips that have the XD (which is basically the same as NX) bit either. I would look to your firewall manufacturer.
