NAV 2009 blocks access to hard disk
Just upgraded from Systemworks 2004 to Systemworks 2009, which includes NAV 2009. Now other computers on our lan have trouble accessing files on this hard disk. Things work fine for awhile, then in some random time period later (up to an hour or so) the other workstations start getting Windows delayed write errors, errors opening files (they are opened read-only because it appears that something has the file open for writing already), and eventually no access at all (trying to even look at folders on the shared disk in Windows Explorer times out, but it takes 10 minutes to do so...) This problem started happening right after I installed Systemworks 2009.
Computer A: Win XP SP2, upgraded from Systemworks 2004 to Systemworks 2009. Has second hard disk that is shared.
Computer B: Win XP SP2, Systemworks 2004.
Computer C: Win 98, some other vendor's anti-virus.
Computer A seems to work just fine by itself. Computers B & C work OK for awhile, but then start having problems accessing Computer A's shared disk. The only way to fix it appears to be rebooting all 3 computers.
I have tried turning off everything in NAV 2009 (intrusion detection, antispyware, SONAR, everything in Internet Settings, and now finally Anti-Virus itself -- haven't seen if that last one makes the problem disappear, but obviously I now have no anti-virus protection).
There have been no warnings from NAV 2009, and the History doesn't have anything of interest (although it did complain a lot about Viewmgr.exe when I had intrusion detection turned on).
Maybe I'm going in the wrong direction, could it be something in Systemworks?
