    SAV9 and NT4 - OleMainThreadWndName errors

    Incase anyone else has a **** load of NT4 boxes and you decide to throw SAV9 on them, prepare for the madness of OleMainThreadWndName errors. To spare someone the surprise of this, take a peak at this tech bulleton:

    Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition, Release MR2
    Fix ID: 1-2XZVIR
    Shutdown error on Windows NT 4: "OleMainThreadWndName Will Not Close (Must be Ended)"
    Symptom: After upgrading Symantec AntiVirus, shutting down NT4 (SP6) will hang, and get a pop-up window saying the OleMainThreadWndName will not close (End, Wait, Cancel). This occurs twice before NT4 will shut down successfully.
    Solution: Recent changes to support Windows Security Center introduced a new dependency on the code as defined by Microsoft (KB 136885). The code has been corrected to resolve this problem.

    Anway, the fix does work. Hope this saves someone a nasty surprise on a Friday afternoon.

    A pathetic spambot folks, so I put it out of its misery.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
