I am running a Jetty web server on a Windows 7 32-bit machine. When "Base Filtering Engine" service is enabled, I see an unexpected 500ms delay after each HTTP response (between the time the server sends a response and the the time the client receives it) even though both client and server run on the same machine. I see the same behavior if client and server run on separate machines.

It's not clear which service is at fault, why, and how to fix it. Any ideas?

What firewall software do you have installed, if any? – Mehrdad Sep 6 '11 at 21:00
ESet AntiVirus and Windows firewall. – Gili Sep 7 '11 at 3:01

I figured it out.

  1. It turns out that disabling ESET AntiVirus using Setup -> "Temporarily disable Antivirus and antispyware protection" doesn't disable all anti-virus components. When I uninstalled the anti-virus the network latency disappeared.

  2. This bug seems to be fixed in the latest version of ESET Antivirus. Upgrading from version 4.0.474.0 to fixed it for us.
