Nope, I had no cores at all since the upgrade to 5.0.
But, you were right regarding the bad object.
A simple ovtopofix resolved my problem, I had no crashes
of netmon for the last two days. Hope it will keep up the good work...
I think I will execute ovtopofix regularly from now on.
Thanks for your help James !
(And thanks Ray Schafer for your reply as well !)
