The only software I know for certain breaks stuff is Norton Antivirus - it's quite a nasty bug they have which breaks documented behaviour of NT. If you're interested see Microsoft Knowledge base Q150523 http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q150523 The example code given is very similar to the code used by cvsnt to communicate with its child processes. Norton Antivirus breaks this behaviour. I'm not sure what's happening when people say they've uninstalled it and still had the problem. It's possible in some cases it wasn't fully uninstalled (it must be completely uninstalled, not merely disabled). There may be another piece of software with the same bug, but I've not had any consistent reports that tell me what it could be.
