TBB Meter Causes Blue Screen Crash & Fault in JAVA

[link to this post]
Today when I booted I got a blue screen error. I tried to boot several times, each time the PC crashed when the Meter was displayed on my second screen.

The fourth time I was able to prevent the crash by selecting Exit in the TBB meter popup from the task bar.

This was when Java inform me that a program was causing an error in Java.

In safe mode TBB refused to uninstall, nor would it use the uninstall option in the menu.

I had to manually remove it then clean the registry.

I do have several crash dumps if I knew where to find them.

tbbMeter app does not use Java, so not sure why the link exists.

The automated testing software you are running, may have an odd interaction with tbbmeter. The tbbmeter.exe and tbbloaderservice.exe processes should happily respond to requests to close the exe via Task Manager, so long as Show Processes from All users is enabled.

You can gracefully degrade the meters functionality, to turn off the packet sniffing, and revert to just monitoring the Network Interface counters, by Disabling TCP/UDP monitoring.
