T2007 /TWB (Build 863)

I have a huge 1 million+ unit TM which has started causing problems here and there which require reorganising.

I've tried a couple of times in the past but its never been successful, trying again now it freezes at the Analysing stage at 19900 units

( I noticed a post that suggested adding all Trados components to Kaspersky's Trusted App section, done this, no good, noe was disabling KAV)

Any suggestions?

If this is the case, I'm afraid you are in trouble, there seems to be no certain way to repair the database. This is quite common problem with all versions of Trados unfortunately. It has been discussed on forums for a number of times, just search (e.g.

Try exporting TM, probably you wouldn't be able to export it all, but you will save at least some part. In general it is very advisable to backup frequently (by exporting your TM), but I guess it's too late to tell you that.
There are some solutions proposed (just search proz forums), but it doesn't seem that any of them is conclusive and works all the time.
