Not sure what happened but when I got to work today, Console2 stopped working. Every time I try opening it Windows XP (SP2) complains:
error dialogs (can't post images yet)
I tried messing with DEP preferences in System->Performance, adding cmd.exe and console2.exe but to no avail. My first thought was maybe a Windows Update messed things up, but I checked for updates that were installed lately and the last one was a month ago.
What's even stranger is that initially only I had this problem, then my coworker started seeing strange errors as well and when he restarted his computer, he was getting the same errors as I did.
Another thing that might or might not be related, my Cygwin started working really slow for no apparent reason, start up time, simple commands like echo, ls, all take around 30 seconds to return.
