    I uninstalled Java about 8 months ago-do not miss it.

    Java zero-day bug

    Thanks Elise. A tad bit of paranoia isn't necessarily a bad thing, I just down want to fall in to the Chicken Little syndrome . I'll look at that article.

    Java zero-day bug

    I uninstalled Java sometime back-don't miss it at all. I do use Flash and Reader, Fabian is there cause for concern with those two?

    Over Kill On Security Software

    tsr-you pose an interesting question. There is no 100 % right or wrong answer. Let's just say it all depends, on you. If you are comfortable with what you use, then great! In my opinion, smart computer security is a 2 fold deal, find effective, proven tools and use them wisely, then, do not be careless online (and rely on the tools to save your behind ). In the old days, it was easy to spot the "bad guys" because they all wore black masks-so much for it being easy these days! But seriously, nothing in this world is 100%-I believe in a layered approach (I am not an A/V or A/M expert but I know what works for me). Utilize the tools at your disposal (again wisely) and you should be all set!

    update process

    I too support Emsisoft and its update system. I use a few different vendors & products and Emsisoft is equal to or better than all as far as updating is concerned. I run on DSL (medium speed) and have no issues at all. Life is good!

    Scheduled scan fails to run

    hek3-my settings recently have been set to daily and it has been running-please let me know if changing to every day of the week works-if not, run the debug logs for GT500. Another thought, you could try uninstall/reinstall. Might be worth a shot. But GT500 is the expert here (and really a decent guy). Hang in there~~~ :)
  7. Happy New Year to all Emsisoft staff and forum members! May 2013 be a better bugfree year for all!

    Scheduled scan fails to run

    Well I set the radio button to daily scans yesterday and it did run today. I will monitor it daily and see what happens.

    Scheduled scan fails to run

    I'm on it-setting it up now...scan is scheduled for 9AM EST.

    Is it necessary?

    So far no issues (it has been almost 3 months)-I have the exclusions set up in both. They both have features I like-so I take it a day at a time-just don't schedule scans at the same time. You can see my previous topic By the way, Happy New Year to all! May 2013 be better than 2012!

    Is it necessary?

    Thanks Fabian (it is paid). That's what I thought, but just wanted to be sure!

    Is it necessary?

    Looking at what I am currently running securitywise, would Mamutu add any value? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
