I was using TorCP since a while and decided to try Vidalia. I am also using PGP (8.5, 8.5.1, and 9.xx) on a few boxes.
I didn't see anything suspicious at once, Vidalia was running fine, and PGP as always too.
But today, I saw that I couldn't anymore unmount any PGP virtual disks, and moreover, the mounted PGP virtual disks didn't show up in Windows explorer. Of course I didn't linked this problem to Vidalia! I checked my boxes against viruses, trojans, lokked all the running processes, etc. Nothing suspicious! I then uninstalled completely PGP, created a new virtual disk and made the test again: Same result!
Then I remembered that I just installed Vidalia some hours ago... I killed it... And the PGP mounted disks became visible again, and they again could be unmounted!
A few tests showed that when Vidalia is running, the PGP virtual disks cannot be unmounted, and don't show up in Explorer.
Morality: Back to TorCP... !
