Windows 7: Conflict between Explorer.exe and Gameguard

11 Feb 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Conflict between Explorer.exe and Gameguard

So this is not a new problem but it is one I am interested in getting to the bottom of. Whenever I play anygame with Gameguard the game will launch itself and GG into memory, it's intro cinematics play, and sometime before getting to the login screen explorer.exe will enter into a infinite crash-restart loop. It only happens with Gameguard games games that use Hackshield or other anti cheats run fine. Because Gameguard doesn't create an error or log I have no way of knowing why it happens if I attempt to close the game it may close itself and GG or GG may lock me out of Window's security controls so I can't restart Explorer.exe it's a 50/50 chance. I want to troubleshoot this cause I want to play Blade and Soul with my friends. I suspect it's something loaded into Explorer.exe like a context menu item but I have no way of confirming it. Is there anyway to determine why explorer.exe is doing this on Gameguard games?

GameGuard Fix Yet?
Is there any GameGuard fix yet for 32 bit? Nothing has worked so far for me, and that is probably because I have 32 bit instead of 64 bit.
