Report "Enable Guard on System Startup" keeps turning off in Emsisoft Anti-Malware Home Posted August 23, 2010 hi ! Hi hackerman1, Have you tried the suggested steps? That should work no, i have not tried "the suggested steps", as i just read about this problem here in the forum.... The option is under Configuration > General Tab 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. Manual startup will work for the current session .. but most importantly you are not protected during Reboot (where "things" may happen) if said feature is not working After the Reboot you should see the icon in the SysTray or among those inside the "Notification Area" (depends on what OS you are using) not protected ? you are basically right, since a2guard.exe isn´t running. but, i´m also running MSE v2-beta, so i´m not in any real danger during startup... B) i have now reinstalled EAM, and tested it by rebooting several times, now everything is back to normal. p.s. Please provide more detailed information about your System Environment as in Forum Posting Rules #2) why should i post "detailed information about my System Environment" when i´m only making a comment about also having noticed the problem with a2guard.exe myself ? but of course, that information is useful if i ask for help, then of course i´ll post all relevant information... FYI, i´m using W7-Enterprise 32-bit, MSE v2-beta, Online Armor-Premium.
