When running Server 2008 you have a high probability that DEP has blocked an instruction, and that’s the reason your executable stops execution. By default DEP is in Windows Server 2008 enabled for all programs and services.
1. Open the Start menu, right click at Computer and select Properties in the context menu.
2. On the left below Tasks click Advanced system settings. In the Performance section click Settings. After that the window Performance Options shows up, go to the tab Data Execution Prevention, select Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only and click OK.Click OK when you are notified that you need to restart your computer.
3. Restart your computer and test.
I think it's more than just this, I'm seeing event messages all over the place that the Threat Engine has stopped.
Like this on my XP 64 system:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Error
Event Category: (100)
Event ID: 1000
Faulting application STAgentUpdater.exe, version 7.8.1388.0, faulting module msvcr90.dll, version 9.0.30729.4148, fault address 0x0005bea4.
The crash of STAgentUpdater.exe should not be affecting the Threat Engine. There is a race condition in 7.8 that causes the STAgentUpdater to crash while shutting down that has the same signature as the event you posted. However, upon investigation this is shown to not affect the ability of the agent to perform updates to itself. It will be fixed in a future release.
The other event with that signature has yet to have any crash dump data anonomously submitted to verify if it is the same issue. It was last reported on April 29.
