Buffer is not allocated... fatal error



This is a new problem, no new software installed, nothing changed in weeks. Suddenly just happened! Ideas? Shows-up every time I Send/Receive mail through Outlook Express.

Yellow Exclaimation Point in the System Tray:

Tiny Personal Firewall Driver: Buffer Allocate" Buffer Size (8207) > FWDRV_BUFFER_MAX_SIZE (5000) - buffer is not allocated.

Any ideas on how to correct this error?

Thank you.

Well it's definitely a problem with your firewall, have you tried re-installing TPF or seeing if you can disable it for a moment before you send the mail? Or look around TPF's options since I haven't used it in awhile and see if there are any buffer settings for scanning outgoing items
First thing I did was uninstall the firewall, then re-installed it... sent an e-mail to myself:same error.

Then I disabled the firewall and sent an e-mail to myself... same error (with the firewall disabled!)

I cannot find any Tiny Software firewall option or menu that has anything to do with buffer size or allocation.

Isn't there a Windows XP dynamic buffer allocation feature? Is is possible that Windows XP is not allocating the buffer space to the firewall driver?

The error states ... "buffer is not allocated".

I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out!
Well I uninstalled Tiny, removed every Registry entry relating to Tiny, rebooted, then installed Zone Alarm.

Problem solved!

Someday I'll dig deeper into the buffer problem with Tiny, but for now I am back in business with a good firewall.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
