  1. Thanks, Sudo.

    Thanks, Sudo.

    QUESTION: Is disabling EMET 5 services with services.msc as good as uninstalling it re diagnostic purposes?

    I heard back from my once-daily Emsisoft "support" person -- not answering ANY of my...

    Thanks for your input, Sudo and Jerry -- my email checker was temporarily out of commission (operator error), so I didn't get the notification of your replies.

    Currently I'm getting one response...

    The clean boot process is definitely worth a shot, and I'll give it a go when I can dive in again.

    I find that dealing with computers going wonky is no longer exhilarating and a fun challenge...

    Well, another day down the tubes. Although I have offered to send the Logs folder & other info. they normally ask for and that I managed -- with difficulty -- to save prior to the last uninstall of...

    Thanks, Sudo. I did actually see the C:\EEK comment and commented on it above. :p

    I initially checked the BleepingComputer.com site; however, the services that errored out are clearly essential...

    Thanks, Sudo. If you're referring to the Startup folder, those I've added are few, but yes, that is one thing I could try (when I'm ready for the next sparring match). Or were you referring to...

    Thanks, Sudo15. I just now finished bringing my computer back up to speed following my 3rd clean install of OA (and now uninstall) -- this time with EMET stopped and disabled (rather than...

    Oh, I for sure will take it one step at a time! And I mentioned Trusteer Rapport only as a possibility; if all else is working well, then I see little if any need for it.

    Just now finished a new...

    Thanks for that, Rui. I'll be interested to see what Emsisoft support comes up with. I was really frustrated not being able to figure out what might be so unusual that it would stop OA in its...

    Thanks, Rui. I've been wondering about that, as well; I've been running EMET 5.0 and Malwarebytes AntiExploit Free, both of which did well with Vipre.

    OA recognized and allowed both MBAE and...

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that both last night and this afternoon I did just that -- put it into Learning mode and then rebooted -- and again -- and again. It's just not wanting to learn, I guess --...
  13. Online Armor install causing Win7 startup errors

    Following uninstalling and cleaning up after Vipre (& backups & System Restore points), I installed trial versions of Emsisoft AM and Online Armor yesterday, fought with OA until past midnight, then...

    A quick followup: Emsisoft has indeed allowed me to convert my free versions of Emsisoft for both computers to full trial versions, together with trial versions of their Online Armor. A very quick...

    :D Well, I was glad to note that at least they tested it for me. Sounds like I'll have to deal with the adware myself. I'd like to see them come up to the level of Vipre and strip those things...

    Thanks again, Rui. I appreciate your careful analysis and recommendations, which I will probably follow, getting the separate OA. I do, after all, have and use HIPS in my current firewall. I often...

    Thanks for the nudge, Rui. Your voice continues to be one of reasoned and kind thoughtfulness.

    I'm considering asking Emsisoft if they would switch me from free to a 30-day trial (which I had...

    Have you tried specifically allowing MBAE and/or the installer file as an exception (whitelisting it) in your AV/AM active protection?

    Well, here's Emsisoft's generic response, not specifically addressing the issue of FreeFileSync, which is a preferred and essential program for me and from which installer the "lesser" Vipre easily...

    Thanks for that, Rui.

    I've run on-demand scans of these files with both my free MalwareBytes and Emsisoft, and they find the PUPs. The problem is, of course, that dealing with them after the...

    Thanks, Rui. I wanted to see what experiences users here (and you) have had, or even if other better AV/AM programs do this. I have also emailed Emsisoft, as I'm not ready at this point to set up...

    Does Emsisoft AM/IS strip out PUPs?

    Does Emsisoft AntiMalware (or Internet Security combo) prevent downloaded software with a PUP from installing or will it peel off the PUP and allow the actual software to install?

    My current...

    You could try disabling your add-ons one by one, to see if one is interfering. Another thing that occasionally helps is to read any recent comments on the TBird add-ons page for each add-on, to see...
