When I try to use the HTTP Full Web Page sensor to check the loading time of an URL I get back the error message: Timeout, executable did not return. (code: PE018). The URL to check doesn't matter. I already did a reset of Internet Explorer to default values.

ok, the reason was a buggy shockwave plugin (which got installed appearently by default). after disabling it, everything works again. this all with w2k8 datacenter, IE8, vanilla install.

Hello,

which version of the IE is installed? Can you please try if it makes a difference when running the probe service under another account? How many sensors of this type do you have? Is it only one? Please try at least a scanning interval of 60s or 5 minutes for a test.

Best Regards.
