SmartFTP client crash after update to 4.0.1215

The SmartFTP client keeps crashing intermittently, no particular action to trigger it after update to latest version. It was stable in previous version 4.0.1180. I tried clean install, wipe off the registry key and local data, re-install the 4.0.1215, still the same issue.

I wasn't able to see anything meaningful in the dump. The crash is in an unknown thread and the stack is empty. Are you interested in a remote debug session? If yes please contact us at support at Thank you.

The event viewer shows that op_shell.dll is the faulting module when SmartFTP crashed. I think it may have something to do with the Outpost Firewall 7.5.1 that I'm using, that was my first thought too. I'll try to contact you guys again for remote debugging session if I can't figure out from here.

Here is the event viewer details:

Yep, I think the Outpost shell extension is the problem. I turned it off using ShellExView and the SmartFTP client has been running fine.

It seems others have been reporting similar problems with Outpost and Windows Explorer: <broken link>
