Windows OS Critical Update:
After making agreement with new EULA, install the critical update when a new critical update is released. It should work well but it is impossible to predict future issues.
Caution: Installing the anti-virus software will cause the malfunction. The detail on this issue is shown in following.
We confirmed some issue might occur with installing anti-virus software. The details are as follows:
- Shutdown process might be failed and Check Disk may run when press the standby switch to turn on the instrument. This will cause the critical damage to hard disk of the analyzer. To avoid this, special shutdown process is required. Detail process is available on FAQ.
- It will take tens of minutes to start the analyzer.
- Some of the window of the anti-virus software is too big to display on the instruments. The "OK" button of the window sometimes cannot be displayed.
- The anti-virus software might be too slow while the Trigger mode is set to "Continuous", since it is too high CPU usage by firmware. Need to set the trigger mode as "Hold".
Since anti-virus software might cause malfunction, we do not recommend installing anti-virus software on the E5070B/71B and the E5061A/62A, nor make it run. Instead, enable to access the hard disk drive (HDD) of the E5070B/71B and the E5061A/62A from an external PC, and then scan the HDD with anti-virus software installed on the PC. This is recommended way to conduct virus scan. Please refer to the user's guide for enabling the access to the HDD from the external PC.
