Known Issue: Driver Not Restarting on Versions 7.0-7.4

1 min. readlast update: 04.07.2023

Trending issue is known for ThreatLocker versions 7.0 to 7.4 where a service restart that is sent from the ThreatLocker portal via the computers page does not successfully stop the driver leaving it in a pending or suspended state. This will also cause the service to not check in to the portal making the computer appear offline despite the service runnning. The current workaround for this issue is a system restart, and is recommended to be done as soon as possible to correct functionality in our service. This is known to only affect specific computers, however we are unable to replicate which types of machines or Windows OS versions are affected.
