  1. hi ! i have also had problems with wlan, it works for a while, maybe an hour or two then the connection is lost. usually but not always, the W7-icon in the taskbar then says "limited connection". i have logged all "blocked events" in OA, and the problem seems to be "UDP→, rule missing, packet dropped, network connection lost", because that is logged everytime the wlan-connection "dies". and this is on a new W7-installation, on a "clean" formatted partition, so there is nothing leftover from another firewall. i have never had this problem before, it all started a few weeks ago after i upg
  2. yes, i read that and started thinking it might improve my security. as far as i have read, MS doesn´t mention that you cannot use Forefront with other FW´s, they only say that Forefront SIMPLIFIES the management of Windows Firewall. that´s EXACTLY what i read, and made me think about conflicts, and one reason that i asked here in the forum. actually i just remembered that i once had EAM, OA, and Forefront on my W7-testsystem, and everything seemed to work perfectly, i didn´t notice any problems at all. but, that was a previous version of Forefront, it was last spring (2010) if i remem
  3. hi ! i ´m thinking about EAM-Full version, OA-Premium & Microsoft´s Forefront Endpoint Security together ? has anyone tried that combo ? will that combination work or am i asking for trouble ? i know that EAM, OA & MSE work very well together, because that´s what i´ve ´been using for years now. Forefront is basically the same antivirus-scanning as MSE, but has some extra network-protection added, which made me think the combo should work.
  4. it ´s a NEW installation on a formatted patition, so obvoiously there can NOT exist any leftovers from any software. anyway, both of you have misunderstood the problem, i installed OA-Premium WITHOUT using any key, as instructed, and got OA-Free. when that didn´t work i LATER even tried OA v4.5 with the trial-key that was used when v4.5 were the latest version. anyway, as i said above: problem solved, i´m running OA-Premium now, OA++ without a2...
  5. it a completely NEW W7-installation on a formatted partition, so there is nothing "leftover"... anyway, i have now solved the problem ! i installed OA ++ instead of OA-Premium, then i got a 30-day-trial. OA is now installed and running, "converted" to OA-Premium by removing the a2-folder. I have EAM running separately so i don´t want OA ++.
  6. hi ! THANKS ! i´m not alone.... i was beginning to believe i was stupid.... the weird thing is, i even tried to install v4.5 using the "old" trial-key that was needed back then, but i still get OA-Free, even with v4.5
  7. hi ! when i install OA-Premium v5 30 day trial, i´m getting OA-Free instead ? i have done a "normal" installation with the latest available version, a fresh download directly from Emsisoft. during installation in the screen where you can enter a key if you already have one, i just clicked on "Next" as instructed. previously (on v4.5 etc.) there were a trial-key needed, is it still needed to enter a trial-key ? if so which key is that ? i can´t find any information anywhere, and i have searched.... O/S is W7-Enterprise 64-bit.
  8. hi ! i edited my previous post above while you answered: "my problem is that i downloaded & installed premium, but as i entered my license-key for OA++, i got OA++. i already have a separate installation of EAM, so i do NOT want OA++." so yes, i entered a key for OA++. i´m going to email Emsisoft, and ask for a premium-key instead......
  9. well, i selected premium, bit i got ++.......
  10. hi ! ok, thanks. are there only a combined setup-file ? are there no separate installers for the 3 versions(free, premium, ++) ? how can i install premium ? my problem is that i downloaded & installed premium, but as i entered my license-key for OA++, i got OA++. i already have a separate installation of EAM, so i do NOT want OA++.
  11. hi ! where can i get older OA-versions ? i want OA-Premium 4.0......
  12. hi ! unless i have missunderstood the problem, wouldn´t the easiest be to create a bat-file with the following structure: ------------------ shutdown service run a2cmd restart service ------------------ then create a task in taskscheduler, set the bat-file to run at the time you want.
  13. you can use MSE as backup, it also works well together with EAM. i´m currently using EAM & MSE v2-beta together. one simple workaround, put (a link to) guard.exe in your "Start-folder", then it runs when you reboot.
  14. hi ! i´ve restored my backup now, i´m going to reinstall windows updates again, 1 at a time. i might have some more info in a couple of days...
  15. after having experienced some problems i recently restored my system-backup, and then started reinstalling all security-updates from Microsoft again. as before (see above) a few at a time, after i had installed the first 5, guard.exe wasn´t running after reboot, i checked the settings, and it was once again UNMARKED. so one of those 5 updates turned off the "File Guard" ! i changed the settings to "ON", and it has stayed on since then. i´m going to remove those 5 updates, just to see what happens. then i´m going to restore my backup again, and reinstall 1 of those 5 updates at a time,
  16. Lynx: who is "hacekrman1" ? i´m using EAM v5 on Windows Server 2008, it´s working OK and i have not detected any problems.
  17. hi ! i´m using EAM on Windows Server 2008. "technical requirements" ? none ? i just installed it... nothing special, a "normal" installation. but i don´t know anything about older versions. btw. what is Windows Server 2007 ? i thought 2003 was the version before 2008 ?
  18. hi ! thanks for that information ! good to hear that i´m not the only one having that problem. of course i could run OA++ with the antivirus turned off, but then the taskbar-icon looks "weird". anyway, i haven´t spent any more time on this, as i decided to first solve the problems with a2guard.exe & OA that seems to be caused by Microsoft updates. posted in this thread: a2guard OA-premium v4 is working, so there is no panic to upgrade... i´ll contact Emsisoft when i have solved those problems.
  19. hi ! i also had the same problem when i tried to upgrade OA-premium to v4.5 using the built-in program-update. so i uninstalled OA, and downloaded the installer from OnlineArmor.com, i ran the installation & selected OA-premium, but also got OA-Free. but after having entered my license-key it switched from OA-Free to OA++, which is (almost) correct since i entered a OA++-license, although i selected OA-premium when installing, not OA++. i already have EAM, so i don´t want OA++.... i haven´t solved that problem yet, i just removed OA v4.5, and restored my backup of v4, but i´ll post
  20. thanks ! yes, MS-updates CAN cause problems, thats´s exactly why it takes time for MS to release their updates, because they need to check that the update doesn´t cause NEW problems. yes, i have updated (reinstalled) EAM, as posted above. I have separate partitions for "O/S", “Programs” and “Documents & Media”. it´s much faster that way, it takes only 14 minutes, with an old IDE-disk... when i restored the backup i only restored W7, so the problem with "Enable Guard on startup" WAS with EAM updated. yesterday i installed another one of the last 4 remaining updates, i have tested
  21. hi ! i might have found a few "suspect" updates... as i mentioned above i have had some problems lately, i have had an errormessage about Online Armor Miniport: "Device driver not installed" & a2guard.exe has not started normally. so i´ve have restored my system from a backup. i created a system restore point and then i have installed the recent updates from Windows update, a few at a time. yesterday after i had i installed 2 of the last 4 updates, i got the OA-problem again, i tried to uninstall those 2 updates, but it didn´t help so i restored my system to the point before all the
  22. yes, 2 A/V´s can conflict with each other, but i have not noticed any with MSE, and i have been running MSE a long time together with EAM. i have also used MSE v2-beta together with EAM, no problems detected until the last few days... FYI, i have set "Fileguard" to "Scan on Execution", i have not (yet) tested the other 2 settings together with MSE. MSE doesn´t have any option to "Ignore" a detected file, which is VERY stupid ! it´s the "old" Microsoft-mentality: "Microsoft ALWAYS knows what is best..." i previously had to reinstall software because MSE quarantined it. and i have checke
  23. hi ! no, i have not tried "the suggested steps", as i just read about this problem here in the forum.... i know where the setting is under "Configuration"... i said: "i have not noticed any unmarked settings under "Configuration / Guard settings", but i have not looked for it..." i meant that it could have been unmarked, i don´t know since i have not checked that setting every time a2guard.exe didn´t start normally. i only checked that setting the last 2-3 times a2guard.exe didn´t start, and those times it was MARKED. not protected ? you are basically right, since a2guard.exe isn
