Microsoft Windows


Seems to be related to the Single Sign On driver and the password authentication process (lsass.exe) used with Microsoft Windows and possibly third party software interaction.


This issue is fixed in the following release:

PGP Desktop 10.3.2 MP1+

This version/Maintenance Pack is available for download via your account on Symantec File Connect. fileconnect.symantec.com


- Disabling Single Sign on functionality of PGP seems to reduce the frequency of or eliminate the occurrence of these crashes.
