Softice/ Winice - debugger problems

  [DELETED] 15:53 26 Oct 2003


After installing some software I restarted and all seemd to go well. Later when I right clicked on a file to delete it. Even if I left click to select a file then go to explorer menu to delete\ rename etc the file I am then greeted with this message:-
"Protection Error

Debugger detected - please close it down and restart!

Windows NT users: Please note that having the
Winice/ Softice service means that you are running a debugger!"

I have been through system processes etc and cannot find any reference to Winice or Softice.

I am running XP pro with all service packs and updates and Norton AV 2003 with latest sigs.

Any help gratefully accepted

Should really say what the TP software was but To begin with, there are two known problems causing this message, both resulting from third-party software using debugger-like approaches.

If you have an AMD processor and use ULEAD graphics software products, remove or rename amdfix.sys. If you have an Audigy 2 soundcard, turn off the welcome screen in its drivers.

Many thanks spikeychris.

The renaming the amdfix.sys solved the problem. I had just installed Ulead Photoimpact 8 so your solution was spot on.

Again many thanks.
