Default Chap 10 FileSystemObject Problems

Hi guys,

I have been having a problem with the directory listing code in Chap 10 of .

Whenever I try to execute the example, my browser starts loading the page (before displaying anything), and then hangs half way through. I then have to restart my IIS services before I can execute any other ASP pages.
It seems to return the virtual path, and the physical path, without a problem. I removed all the FileSystemObject coding, and just wrote the two paths to screen. This returned the correct virtual and physical paths for the file location.
So it seems to fall over somewhere while creating and/or accessing the FileSystemObject.

Has anyone had this problem before, or know what I am doing wrong?

After looking into this a bit further, it seems that Norton's Script blocking (in Antivirus or System Works) causes the problme here. You dont need to uninstall Norton, but you do need to disable the script blocking.
