Strange problem when debugging !!!

Hi I am running into strange problem and I would really appreciate any hint.....

I am creating a Reversi game and I am using IntelliJ and Java 1.5 . I have been debugging my code since last sunday but today I have a strange bug.

When I am running the Reversi game in Debug mode my computer freeze when I press the Mousebutton. When pressing the button the breakpoint in the MouseDown listener should trigger. When I initiate my program with a breakpoint it works fine but if I try to debug after pressing the mouse button it freezes. If I am not running the Reversi game in Debug mode everything is working fine. This is very annoying because I need to restart my computer each time it freezes.

I am using the Eclipse framework for the GUI in the game. So the mouselistener is attached to the Eclipse Canvas object.

One thing though... before this started happening I installed the BitDefender virus protection program and since then this started to happend. However I ran the Windows System Restore to the point before I installed the BitDefender but still I had the same problems. The computer freezes when pressing the mousebutton in Debug mode.

The debugging worked fine but now its acting strange. I would appreciate any hint now because I have no idea where to look....

Have you also uninstalled BitDefender? If not, try to uninstall it.
Do you have Agnitum Outpost firewall installed?

Another workaround is to try Shared Memory transport in Settings | Debugger.

Thanks for the hint Baranov.

I already uninstalled BitDefender and I am only using Windows Firewall.
I tried switching to Shared Memory but with no luck, the computer still freezes when pressing the mousebutton in Debug mode.

I found a clue that may give you a better idea what might be wrong.
I restarted Windows in "Safe Mode with Networking" and Debugging in Safe Mode is working fine even when I press the mouse button.

So what could possible be conflicting with the mouse when running Windows in normal mode ?

Just about any one of your N device drivers you have installed could cause
this. At a guess I'd say the prime suspect would be your graphics driver
- have you tried updating it? The one thing that it is very unlikely to be
is anything to do with a bug in IDEA.

Hi Chris. Thank you for your reply. Yes I think you are correct this has nothing to do with th e IDEA software. I think all my drivers are up to date. I think I will re-install window because I am running into other problems too.
