OSD disappears once a day - old thread creation error?


Recommended Posts

Until the more recent versions of AIDA64, I would get thread creation errors about once a day.  Now, with the latest versions I just notice the OSD disappears, about once a day.  While this is better than the "frozen" OSD I used to get, it's still kind of a pita.


My system:


Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor
ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Motherboard ( 1302 BIOS)
EVGA 06G-P4-2791-KR GeForce GTX TITAN 6GB 384 bit GDDR5
CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866Mhz RAM (factory settings)
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 CPU Cooler (push/pull)

WD 500GB Velociraptor - SATA III    
WD 1TB Caviar Black FAEX - SATA III
WD 1TB Caviar Black FAEX - SATA III
LG GH22LS30 CD/DVD Burner

PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W Quad EPS12V

DELL Ultrasharp U3011, 30" monitor
Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 THX Speakers (Black)
Ducky DK9008 Shine II Blue LED Backlit Mechanical Keyboard (Cherry MX Black)
Logitech Optical M-100

COOLER MASTER ATCS 840 Full Tower Case
3x230mm, 1x120mm, Optional: 3x Scythe S-Flex SFF21G 120mm (installed)




I have no external anything hooked up...just have what's in the list above.  Nothing is overclocked, and I'm currently running the 331.82 Nvidia drivers.


AV/firewall... is Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 (paid), only other monitoring software is the latest GPU-Z and CPU-Z, neither is "installed", I just run them portably..aka ...just double click the .exe file when I want to run them.


I have no ASUS utilities installed...never have.



Please let me know if you need any other info.

We've got a few reports of rare threading and OSD or Logitech LCD crash issues lately.  It seems the only common part of such configurations is the security software: BitDefender.  It seems, somehow BitDefender may collide with the hardware monitoring layer of AIDA64.  We've tried to reproduce the issue on our own test systems, using various BitDefender versions, but without luck so far.  Obviously I cannot recommend or request you to uninstall BitDefender and expose your system to other risks, so please provide us a bit more time to dig deeper and hopefully find the root cause of this issue.  Meanwhile, please try to remove a few items from your OSD Panel that may be related to network traffic (like External IP Address and NIC download/upload rates), and see if it helps.


Thank you for your understanding about this issue.

Bitdefender Internet Security 2013

Side Note:   Up until today I haven't been running any page file as I have 16GB of installed RAM.  However, since the last Important Windows Update on the 8th of April, no page file in combination with Acronis True Image Home has caused some issues that never existed before.


So, despite my misgivings, I've had to re-enable the page file.  I only point this out for your ongoing research into the AIDA64 Extreme issues, as it may have some relevance.  I don't know if it was the last Windows Update or not, as MS is less than forthcoming about exactly what each update entails.



The only other thing that I can think of that might be useful to you is the fact, that generally I never install any "optional" Windows Updates.  If it helps you in any way these are the "optional Updates", I haven't installed.
