Which version of ENS are you using? This was typically an issue we had back in the 10.5.2 version.

It can however also be a sign of a dll injection or that the services aren't running - again if you are running anything below 10.5.4 you would be more suspetable to this.

If you are running 10.5.3 and lower, then please upgrade. If you are already running a later version, it might be worth opening a support ticket and providing them with an MER of the system affected as this type of issue would need investigating.

Any similar issue reported for ENS 10.6.1.1273?

 I am getting the same error after we have updated to the February release.
