Anyone else having problems ctd'ing? I know it can be a lot of things, but this started Tuesday, usually happens when gating, but I had it a few times last night when I wasn't gating. And last night was worse than Tuesday. I also had one this morning when logging off, probably related, but this gave me an error code! Don't want to spend a bunch of time looking into things if I'm not the only one with the issue.

The correct name is (upper/lowercase):

The "DLL" (all uppercase) rings an alarmbell.

Assuming it is the real one, disable compatibility settings on the net7proxy.exe and see if you see the same thing. This is used for app compatibility. The .DLL being uppercase *could* be the way they entered the variables that receive the file names for an event log, but like Zack says it could potentially be a piece of malware. A full/thorough scan of your system might be a good idea.

Looking back in the logs, this has been happening intermittently for a long time. Native os is Win 7 64 bit, I run the game in compat mode for Win XP SP 3. I didn't think it would run unless it was in compat mode, guess I'll try and see what happens. I do check regularly for virus's malware etc, The file name in the folder is lower case and the right length, and there is another in AppPatch64 that's different. Any doubt, here's the locations (note the .old stuff shouldn't make any difference, I'm just too lazy to delete that folder).
