Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Can't "Update file tags" after ReplayGain Scan of more than around 40-60 files

Only thing the console says is "Automatic resampling: using Resampler (PPHS)" for every file I scanned. I don't have this enabled on my DSP settings so idk what's going on there or if that's even related, but that's all the console says during all this.

Backstory being I got a new Ryzen 3800x and I figured I could use it to scan a few thousand songs pretty quickly. It did it very quickly (25 minutes for nearly 15k songs), but like 8% into writing Foobar2000 1.5.1 just froze completely. Task Manager said it was "suspended" and I had to force shut it down after I waited 10 minutes. I reproduced this over and over. It always works fine with 20-30 files but works only sometimes if I do any more than that. After an hour I finally managed to scan write 100 files without it crashing. I haven't done a replaygain scan of this scale in years so I honestly don't know "When" the  problem may have started but doing 15,000 files 20-30 at a time would be pretty awful

edit: I spoke too soon. It just crashed when trying to Write tags to a mere 6 files. Froze at 86% which was about a millisecond or two into the process. This wasn't an issue even a few weeks ago. Could it be some conflict with my new hardware?

Try without third party components. Perhaps one of them has multithreading issues that get triggered easier now that you have a fast machine with plenty of cores.

After spending another 2 hours searching the web, I found this post:

This guy seemed to have a similar issue and concluded it had something to do with "mp4"/"aac" files. So I decided to test that. The 6 files that it crashed on at 83% last night, I tried again. They always crash exactly at 83%. Those files are m4a/aac. So then I selected 700 mp3 files....It worked flawlessly. I did this several times. No issues.  Tested FLAC....same issue as m4a/AAC. Basically it's only really working with mp3 now. After another like 20 tests it seems I can do like 3 or so m4a at a time but that's it.

With foobar in safe mode scanning for replaygain isn't even an option - it only lets me copy track and album gain to SoundCheck

edit: I also tried changing Foobar's affinity to just a single core and it's still "suspending" at exactly 83%

What do you mean by "foobar in safe mode"? Temporary move your custom components away and try again. Another option is to create a memory dump when foobar2000 freezes (note freezing is not a crash). If you share the memory dump with Peter he can most likely tell you what causes the problem.

By Safe Mode I meant the the built-in Safe Mode feature - when you force-close Foobar2000, or if it does an actual crash, it will let you go into "Safe Mode" when you next launch it. I thought that's what you meant since it disables components while in safe mode. Problem there was that it seemed to also disable the ReplayGain Scanner lol. I did what you said about moving the custom components away. that way let me still scan but unfortunately the issue persisted. Still went into suspension at 83%.

I have created a dmp file. it's 262 MB. How should I share it?

Sorry for so many posts in a row, no edit after time period obviously.

Anyway, I might've figured out the culprit. Originally I tried disabling every program I could see and  it didn't help. But then I noticed a bunch of services and background apps that were still up even after closing every program I could see normally. One was a new ASUS thing that I don't remember installing with my new CPU/motherboard. Armoury Crate. I uninstalled that but then I also noticed Acconis (which I used the other day to clone my SSD to a larger one) was doing some stuff. Apparently Acronis had enabled their real-time protection service by default.

After uninstalling Armoury Crate and disabling Acronis's real-time protection, I'm able to do my scan on m4a, flac, ect ect again. No idea which one was the problem (I'd put money on Acronis tho). I hope this is the end of this issue.

Unrelated but during the cloning process apparently exactly one song was corrupted. Thank god I used robocopy to make a manual backup of my music prior to cloning

You appear to have "Preserve file creation/access/modification time when retagging" option enabled.
According to the minidump, something causes file time manipulation to get stuck. Most likely, as you said, it's your antivirus software interfering with the operation.
