RE: Re: Tortoise Crashing when proxy not configured properly - not able to change it either

Can you give me the syntax to check the signature? I got the gnupg
downloaded but I haven't been able to figure out how to run the
comparison... surprisingly I googled for examples but came up dry.

The virus scanner/firewall aren't able to be turned off :-( Someone got
crafty about our standard builds and have disabled us from flipping those
switches... However, I have this same setup on another computer and the
firewall/virus scanners don't interfere.

Also, and more relevant, I ran Tortoise for over a year without issue on
this computer. It is hard to believe these would start acting up. I checked
the firewall/scanner log files and they didn't show any issues.

With all of this said - the smoking gun seems to be when I decided to get
clever with the proxy settings [which I fully regret now :-)]. Normally I
had to go via an unsecured connection - which was never a problem. However,
once I flipped those settings, I can't turn them off without the window
closing on me. Each time I delete the registry entries they are reloaded
with the details that are set in the proxy. I can't imagine firewall/virus
reloading the registry with values specific to tortoise.

I can try a vpc with a similar build to see what happens there - that might
help isolate the issue as well. Anyways, if you send the syntax to check
the file integrity, that will eliminate one possibility. Thanks for the
help and sorry to take up so much of your time.

Did you verify the gpg signatures on the msi file?

Did you disable your virus scanner/desktop firewall?

The crash dump you sent and the analyze log doesn't contain any useful
information - I can't see where and why it crashes.
Also, I've mentioned this before: there's not much code executed when you
click on the network tab. Nothing I can see that could crash.
I really suspect some plugin/extension/virus scanner interferring here.
