i started using mamutu again and it causes peerblock to have an error popup during update and curseclient just crashes. excluding peerblock from protection makes the error go away and lets the uodate finish.

heres a link to the Curse Client: http://wow.curse.com/client/

I don't use PeerBlock but I used the Curse Client for years and never had any problems. Can you give a few more details? What other applications are installed? What operating system does the the problem occur on?

To be honest I doubt that Mamutu is causing the problem. From what you have told me it sounds like a compatibility problem caused by multiple applications hooking the same APIs. WinSock APIs are especially sensitive to this issue which explains why it occurs when an application tries to access the internet. Mamutu handles the case of already hooked APIs correctly but there were several applications in the past like for example AdMuncher who didn't and caused crashes as soon as one of the hooked APIs were called. Since it is already quite late here I will try the applications you mentioned in your last post in combination with Mamutu and see if it causes problems. Hopefully I can reproduce it. If that doesn't work I may need additional information to determine what exactly is causing the crash to either fix it if it in fact is a problem in our code or to contact the author of the application so they can fix it.

its also creating issues with my laptops audio switching, like when switching between my USB headset (SteelSeries 7H USB) and the laptops speakers, it wont switch on its own ever since installing Mamutu (like when i unplug the headphones the speakers would start working but with Mamutu now they do not)

disabling ad muncher does seem to have made the crashing in those programs go away, but im still wondering abut the headset to laptop speaker audio switching issue

EDIT: i had to go into device manager and retweak my sound settings to get it to switch audio on its own again so its all working now. but its strange that installing Mamutu did that

AdMuncher is causing the crash and from what I can tell so far there is nothing we can do to stop it from screwing up without preventing it from doing it's job entirely. I already contacted the AdMuncher folks but beyond that there is nothing we can do. Since you are a paying customer of them you may want to drop them a message as well.

Done. Send it to a developer address directly that I found on their forum this time.

Just to give you a little update:

I have talked to Murray from AdMuncher and explained the problem. The problem at this point only affects 64bit processes. As soon as a fixed version is available I will drop you a message.
