  • CB Protection Agent: (patch 6)
  • Microsoft Windows Server: All Supported Versions


This is an interoperability issue between the "Parity.sys" driver and the "TSFairShare.sys" driver part of terminal services.



  • The permanent solution is to upgrade the CB Protection server and agents to version higher then (8.0 patch 6)
  • Temporary workaround is to disable the Ransomware Protection Rapid Config or apply it to specific policies without any RDS or VDI servers until the agents are upgraded
