SWV and Trend CPU usage on Windows 7 with IE6 layer
I am running into an interesting problem.
Using the latest version of SWV (6.1 SP4) and the new IE6 Layer Tool for Windows 7 (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/virtualized-internet-explorer-6-windows-7) I am running into high CPU usage resulting in an unusable machine. Once I deactivate the layer, the machine works fine.
I tracked the process down to a Trend filter driver. Once I remove the Trend Officescan (version 10) service, the layer works fine.
These links refer to an older version of SWV and Trend running on Vista, but I am having the same exact problems.
Installing the registry entry only sped up the machine marginally, the layer is still pretty much unusable.
I have tried this on multiple machines with the same effect.
Other layers like FireFox, work fine with no CPU increase.
