    Is this working OK now for everyone else? If it is, then there's no need for any more logs. All we needed was a traceroute to send to our CDN provider to help in identifying the server that was having the issue, and I managed to get one of those the other day.

    Wenn alle Features eingebaut würden, die Galaxy wünscht, dann würde ich EAM sofort deinstallieren. Ich mag das Programm so wie es ist und hoffe, das bleibt auch so.

    Guten Tag, Wir haben mittlerweile mehrfach etabliert, dass Emsisoft nicht das Programm Ihrer Wahl ist. Sie haben sich bereits anderweitig ein Antivirus gesucht, dass auch noch dreißig weitere Funktionalitäten mitabdeckt. Fakt ist jedoch, dass viele Leute eben auch ein Antivirenprogramm suchen, dass nicht noch fünfzig Extras mitbringt, die man nicht will oder nicht braucht. Für diese Leute gibt es eben Emsisoft Anti-Malware und die meisten unserer Kunden sind mit der Tatsache, dass es eben 'nur' ein Rundumschutz für den Rechner ist und nicht mehr, zufrieden. Für all die angesprochenen Features - Passwortgenerator, Kinderschutz, etc - gibt es bereits gute Programme, die man sich bei Bedarf installieren kann. Viele Leute haben aber entweder keine Kinder oder wollen diesen den Zugang nicht beschränken, warum sollten wir diesen Leuten einen Kinderschutz mitinstallieren. Einige haben eben auch nicht RAM oder CPU im Überfluß, für diese Leute ist es noch ärgerlichr wenn das RAM durch ein AV belegt ist, dass aufgrund von ungenutzten Features die Ressourcen auffrisst. Fazit: Es gibt viele Antivirenprogramme, die die eierlegende Vollmilchsau sein wollen und versuchen alle Programme in einem zu vereinen. Es gibt User, die diesen Ansatz nicht mögen und nur ein Antivirenprogramm wollen. Nicht mehr. Für diese Leute gibt es, zum Beispiel Emsisoft Anti-Malware. Sie gehören nicht zu dieser Gruppe und das ist ok. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Kathrin

    Hi and hello i am here. I am a very paranoid user and sometimes i know i am a headhache. I think sometimes for me is simply imposible relax. I think i am always under virus atack. One time before educate me (not use cracked software, not go to drangerous sites) i catch a extrange virus I click on a file and then i can not acces to my files. Include two of my hard drives trash. I lost too many things, poems, novels, wirtes, music, videos. I try several security programs but no one satisfy me. Now i am using emsisoft for a mor than a year continously and for me you are the most honest company in security matter, you respect the user privacy, you teach the user about the need or not need of something. I really want to thank you because you teach me how to reduce security software installed on my pc. Now i have a ligthweigth config and feel great. Really for you or because you i enjoy my pc Thanks emsi

    If you change the setting (for Malware hosts) on that screen (eg to Block silently) then all instances of malware-host alerts would become silent. That's not necessarily sensible - yes, fewer alerts, but also you'd be less aware of sites that maybe you shouldn't trust so much. If you see alerts for that specific malware host frequently, you could add a rule to treat it differently eg just silently blocking it. But again, you'd then not be warned that such sites had embeded links to that host. Is that wise?

    Wenn man seriöse Seiten aufruft, Programme nur aus verlässlichen Quellen verwendet und installiert und auch mal liest was da bei einer Installation alles so steht und an Haken gesetzt ist, dass Gehirn einschaltet und auch nicht immer alle Links in E-Mail anklickt, dann ist man EAM bestens gerüstete! Denn die Router Firewall sollte ihren Dienst auch ausreichend verrichten. Ich verwende seit 2006 keine Firewall mehr, wie z.B. Zonealarm und habe seit dem auch nicht mehr Probleme, im Gegenteil, dass System läuft wesentlich flüssiger! Im großen und ganzen muss man feststellen, dass Emsisoft seine Hausaufgaben sehr gut erledigt, auf Kunden Beanstandungen Zeitnah reagiert und vor allem im direkten Kontakt zum Kunden steht! Dass kenne ich von keinem anderen Hersteller und ich habe schon viele AV-Programme getestet! Von daher sollte man sich ernsthaft überlegen, ob man Emsi verlassen sollte.

    Ich habe die vergangenen Tage vergeblich versucht eine Software auf meinem Rechner zu installieren, was mir allerdings nicht geglückt ist. Die Installation bzw. der Download brach immer ohne Fehlermeldung oder Kommentar ab. Ich habe dann irgendwann total entnervt aufgegeben und den ganzen, entschuldigt meine Wortwahl, Scheiß wieder von der Platte geschmissen. Nun habe ich gerade in die Benutzeroberfläche von EAM geschaut und musste feststellen, das EAM "ungefragt" die entsprechende EXE von oben in Quarantäne verschoben hat. Das kuriose dabei ist, das im Protokoll steht "Von Benutzer in Quarantäne". Wie kann es sein, das ich hier keinerlei Infos von EAM zu o.g. Verhalten bekomme?

    Thanks for the answer! Yes, I understand that I have 2 options! On the site 2ip.ru there is a utility for checking the effectiveness of the firewall https://2ip.ru/firewalltest/ So, just this first tester shows that the Windows firewall is effective! IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO CONNECT !!! (screen) The second version of the configuration-firewall test fails ... Therefore, I probably choose the first (more complex) version of the settings. Just wanted to learn from experts Emsisoft - whether such settings are acceptable when working with the new version of the EAM. Thanks again for the answer!

    Benutze Win 10 64, folgendes fiel mir auf. starte ich einen Scan kann ich das Fenster nicht schließen, weil sonst der Scan abgebrochen wird, bei anderen Anbietern kann man das Fenster schließen und der Scan lauft in der Taskleiste weiter. Mein Startmenü ist StartisBack, wenn ich das Startmenü öffne und auf Systemsteuerung gehe, dauert es sehr lange bis das Menü sich öffnet, daß ist bei allen Einträgen die ein Menü haben. EAM Version 2017.9.0.8006

    [OT-On] Das trifft für sehr wenige Ausnahmen leider zu, engagiere mich aber überwiegend der Lösungsfindung ;-) Dann stelle ich gleich direkt eine Frage, damit es hier nicht zu Missverständnissen kommt. Wenn Emsisoft möchte, dass hier keine User zu User Hilfe erwünscht ist, dann sollte man das aber auch so als Info irgendwo anpinnen. Ich habe da kein Problem mit wenn das so sein sollte, nur wissen muss man das. [OT-Off] Mit freundlichem Gruß Icewolf

    I guess I should ask, are you using a pirated/cracked copy of Windows or Microsoft Office? The logs indicated a problem with the service that handles Microsoft software activation.

    Leute, es gibt doch echt wichtigeres, als sich mit solchen Kleinigkeiten zu beschäftigen. Die offene GUI ist beim scannen so beabsichtigt, das ist die Antwort, fertig. Man wird sich was dabei gedacht haben.

    Keep in mind we do not officially support any firewall besides the Windows firewall. That means, that we do not do any compatibility testing with any other product. So while it may be true that running EAM and Comodo side by side is possible right now, compatibility may get broken by any update on either side.

    I have decided to use the Binsoft WFC,in "Medium Filtering" mode, which bans all outward connections except for those which are specifically allowed. There's a bit of initial setting up, to allow programs such as Outlook, Firefox, EAM, but then it's just a matter of noting any failed connections and allowing them if they are OK, and keeping an eye on the log. Working well so far.

    Try right-clicking on the Emsisoft Anti-Malware icon, selecting Properties from the menu, going to the Compatibility tab, and making sure that the option to Run this program as an administrator is not selected.

    That's generally done so that your computer doesn't break. Monitoring inbound traffic is generally more important for a firewall than monitoring outbound traffic. Keep in mind that the Behavior Blocker in Emsisoft Anti-Malware does monitor for unknown programs trying to send data, and will block it (or quarantine the program in question) when a program's safety can't be established.

    It's possible that the router isn't keeping accurate statistics (or isn't keeping them at all for the firewall/NAT), and it's possible that the firewall isn't even on. A firewall port test like the ShieldsUp! test from GRC would indicate if ports are open, so that you at least know if the router/modem is offering any protection. This is what my router scores in the test (if you post screenshots of the test results, be sure to censor the IP address like I did): Now, one thing that Steve Gibson doesn't seem to account for (at least in his description of the results of the test) is that while Windows systems use ICMP packets for pings, Linux/Unix systems do not use ICMP packets for that by default. Most Linux (and I would believe most other Unix-based Operating Systems) use UDP packets for pings instead, with the option to use TCP or ICMP packets for pings. A probe would normally not be done exclusively using one type of packet either (for instance I would believe that nmap uses various types of TCP, UDP, and ICMP packets during its probes to increase the chances of getting replies that would reveal information about the system being probed).

    @Galaxy 1. Die Frage war nicht an Dich gerichtet. 2. Wenn man weiß, dass das Schließen des Fensters den Scan beendet, dann lässt man es eben und minimiert das Fenster nur. Was ist denn daran so schwer? Hier wird künstlich ein "Luxusproblem" produziert.

    > I am thinking allow google chrome to communicate on public network? I think so, unless you want browsing not to work on a public network to prevent you from visiting needed-to-be-secure websites in an possibly-insecure way. The FW siftware and advice can't distinguish between genuinely unsafe public networks and home networks set up in the same way.

    I don't understand why the default for all outbound connections is "allow". If there is a rogue program on my PC which wants to send out personal details, how does that work? Sure, the rogue program should not be there in the first place if EAM has done its job, but what if it is? I would have thought that when such a program attempts to send its data, I should see a message asking to allow or block, and the response would then become a rule for that program. I can't find anything like that in the Windows Firewall - am I missing something? I have tried with all outbound connections blocked. in the expectation that when a legitimate program tries to connect, I would see a similar message, but no - the legitimate program just gets an error, such as "Socket error" or "cannot connect to server". So it appears to be all or nothing, which I am not too happy about. Advice would be welcomed.

    To my knowledge, there has been no news about a free cry36 decryption tool. In the case of ransomware like this, which uses secure encryption and generates new public/private keys for every computer it infects, usually there is no way to decrypt the files without getting the private key from the criminals who made the ransomware. You can try a tool such as ShadowExplorer, however ransomware like this usually deletes Volume Shadow Copies, so ShadowExplorer will usually find nothing. Even if the Volume Shadow Copies were not deleted, the odds of finding backup copies of files in them is pretty slim, since Windows would normally only leave backup copies of files in the Volume Shadow Copies if you were using Microsoft's own backup software for data backups (although sometimes the System Restore will save copies of files in the Volume Shadow Copies). http://www.shadowexplorer.com/ In cases where the Volume Shadow Copies are deleted, then note that ransomware doesn't generally delete them securely, so it might be possible to use a file undelete utility to undelete the old Volume Shadow Copies, and then use ShadowExplorer to recover files, however this isn't necessarily straightforward to do (the computer will need to be running from a bootable disk to have write access to the "System Volume Information" folder, or the hard drive will need to be connected to another computer), and even if you can recover the old Volume Shadow Copies, as mentioned above the odds of there being backup copies of important files in them are low to begin with. Note that you may need to find a local computer technician who can assist you with this if you do want to try it. Here's a link to a list of file recovery tools at Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_data_recovery_software#File_Recovery

    If there are settings in the router for remote management (HTTP/HTTPS), remote telnet, and/or remote SSH then I would recommend turning those off as well. I also recommend turning off UPnP, as it allows reconfiguring too many settings on your router that make it easy for infections on computers connected to your router to hijack it. As long as those security considerations are taken into account, and your ISP updates the firmware periodically, then you should be OK.

    I have Anti-Malware on four computers and using Windows Firewall Control on each. Shows better info than the Windows firewall and easier control. I have them in 'learning' mode, but will change that when I feel the time is right. I purchased a key and the price is right for multiple computers. $10 !

    We have noted your suggestion For your information, There isn't really a "maximum protection" with Windows Firewall like you have with 3rd party products; the "maximum" would be to block all inbound and outbound connections in all profiles and make Allow rules "on-the-fly"... which may be arduous for people not familiar with it. Windows Firewall is already configured by default for most users (block inbound and allow outbound connections), so you have nothing particular to do unless you want to block legitimate and safe programs/processes to access the internet. However, the latest version of Emsisoft Anti-Malware's will prevent malicious programs to abuse the Windows Firewall (creating unwanted rules, etc...) via it's Fortification feature.

    Hi, It looks that you have an issue with the database backup/restore process. The dev team needs the logs and eventually the backup databases in order to be able to pinpoint the problem, so can you please send them to me in a PM? If you have issues with respect to that process, let me know and I will get back to you with a PM containing instructions on how to collect the logs. Best regards, Dana

    License conversion should have been done an hour or two ago (from the time I am posting this), and EIS should convert to EAM as soon as it downloads the 2017.9 update. You can force that to happen sooner by manually updating if you would like to.

    Please download Emsiclean from this link (be sure to save it on your desktop), and follow the instructions below to get me a log: Run the Emsiclean download that you saved on your desktop. Read the disclaimer. Note that you must agree to it in order to proceed. Once the scan is finished, simply exit Emsiclean, and do not remove anything. A new file will be saved on your desktop with a log of what was detected. Please attach that to a reply by using the More Reply Options button to the lower-right of where you type in your reply.

    Hello, decided to use another internet security suite, is it ok if I transfer the key to a friend? I have like 2 years left.

    I have to say that it actually works better. I am enjoying the change. Windows FW has come a long way. I didn't even have to add my special rules. As many of the admin already know from past conversations. I deal with hackers on a daily basis with games and let me tell you. They really hate me now.

    I don't really have a problem with the chance & will probably use a Windows FW addition - But I am a little worried about being away for a few days when the change is done on 02 October in case there are problems with this PC accessing the net for example. Is there any way I can do it today 30 September before I go away as others will be relying on this PC & concerned I wont be Superb service - Contacted support & got key converted & uninstalled EIS & installed EAM while I was at it - No problems whatsoever. Was going to add a secondary firewall but decided to leave things as they are unless I encounter problems. Thanks!

    That is amazing well said and heart felt. I felt the same way and share those exact feelings. Its a pity but as a niche user, its time to part ways and move to other. Emsisoft does offer a refund for the remaining of the license.

    Außerdem stellen die Beiden genannten Programme keine ernsthafte Bedrohung da und können niemanden schädigen, es gibt halt User die diese Programme Super nützlich finden, ääähhmm..... hust hust..... na ja Und ja, bevor man hier voreilig Downvotet, sollte man sich überlegen, ob das auch wirklich gerechtfertigt ist.

    and is frozen at 7%, by the way is a problem of connection with the servers of Emsisoft, I will wait for a solution, and apparently, only Monday, until then I will have to install another solution, since I can not be with an antivirus that does not update. Thank you my friend, I did not solve my problems but it helped me a lot, thank you for your attention :)

    Reisende soll man nicht aufhalten. Was sich mir allerdings nicht erschließt, ist, warum Du dann hier noch mit Dreck um Dich schmeißen mußt. Angeblich bist Du doch jetzt noch besser versorgt - und warst bislang recht zufrieden mit Emsi. Es gibt eben leider eine Menge User, die es mehr mit klickibunti und komplizierter Einstellungsvielfalt haben denn mit Wesentlichem. Das ist doch aber kein Problem, freu' Dich über Deine alternative Software...aber bitte verzichte doch auf das Schlechtreden einer von uns zurecht sehr geschätzten Lösung. Inzwischen gibt es - panta rhei - neue und andere Erkenntnisse, Anforderungen und Zusammenhänge auf dem Sektor Computersicherheit: Diesen aktuellen Veränderungen trägt Emsi konsequenterweise Rechnung, verzichtet auf die Mehreinnahmen, die eine integrierte Firewall generierte und zahlt stattdessen noch drauf indem Laufzeiten aus Kulanz verlängert werden.

    In my opinion, the best tool for online privacy is by using good, authentic and paid VPN services. There are many VPN providers available and selecting the right one is not an easy task to do. Well, I would recommend ExpressVPN and NordVPN as I have used them both in different countries for different purposes. However, here are some more VPN providers which are just as good as the ones I have mentioned above: https://www.reviewsdir.com/best-vpn-services/ Furthermore, I would like to know what activities do you actually want to hide? Is it for streaming? Is it for data cloaking? I can give you more specific answer if I can know the exact purpose. Well, cheers for now.
