I have been using an older version of Angry IP as well as 3 Beta 4. Both worked fine until just recently. Now when I try to launch either the mouse pointer turns into an hour glass and stays that way. Cannot close the folder containing the executable. Eventually Explorer crashes and I have to run Task Manager > New Task > Explorer to get the desktop back and reboot the computer. This has happened on two Windows XP boxes that used to run just fine. Version 3 Beta 6 works fine on these computers. Virus scanners (McAfee 8.71i and Security Essentials) are not alerting as a block to the process. And, yes, I have rebooted and the crash happens after a clean start. Windows XP SP3 with all the latest hot fixes. Anyone else seeing something similar?
