  1. I had been using the Beta/Early Release version of the Browser Extension. After updating EAM to V. 2018.12.0.9137 via Auto-Update the version number of the Browser Extension I have installed is: 2018.12.0.9 -- Last Updated December 26, 2018. Is this the latest version of the Browser Extension?
  2. Why am I not given the option to opt-out of auto-renewal at the time that I renew my license? How does a customer access the referenced "Your Account" that allows the customer to change the auto-renewal setting ?
  3. Hello :-) Win 1083 Spring Update has been causing issues on my PC. I use WIN 10 Home so to try to try to prevent prevent WIN 1083 from downloading I have marked my network setting to "Metered Connection." Will a Metered Connection interfere in any way with EAM updates/operation/downloads?
  4. As per the following it appears that the current version of EAM has not yet been updated to accept The WIn 10 Meltdown Update. "...If users aren't willing to search their antivirus product's homepage for such info, if they find the following registry key on their systems, the antivirus product has already been updated to support the Meltdown and Spectre patches. Key="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" Subkey="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat" Value="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc" Type="REG_DWORD” https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-releases-emergency-updates-to-fix-meltdown-and-spectre-cpu-flaws/
  5. "Firefox is getting a Tor-based security upgrade... The non-profit Mozilla Foundation will remove a “feature” called canvas fingerprinting from Firefox, which allows user-tracking across multiple sites without cookies, in it’s upcoming build. It’ll do this by imitating Tor browser, which was built on modified Firefox code and already blocks tracking... Canvas fingerprinting, which happens in every major browser, lets websites extrapolate your data — without asking permission — by tracking you across multiple sites with an amalgam of unique identifiers. This method doesn’t require you to carry any tokens or accept a cookie. This is great for advertisers and websites, but anyone opposed to having their data commoditized without being asked first may take exception..." https://thenextweb.com/security/2017/11/01/firefox-is-getting-a-tor-based-security-upgrade/
  6. Whatever Thanks @GT500 for taking the time to give an upfront and thorough reply.
  7. Hello @soilentgreen With EAM installed: Left-Click Start > Settings > Update and Security > "Windows Defender" (in left-side column) > Click On "Turn On Windows Defender Antivirus > "Firewall & Protection" should say "no action needed" OR Right-Click Start Button > "Search" > "Contol Panel" > "System and Security" > "Windows Defender Firewall" [Handy to right-click on Control Panel and Pin to Task Bar if you like the old-style Win Control Panel.]
  8. K, thanks @GT500, but not sure I understand. Emsisoft uses a third-party analytic service to help it determine what pages on its website people visit and how they found them ? If the above is correct, does Emsisoft's agreement with such 3rd-party place any restriction on what that 3rd-party can do with the data it collects? Who "owns" the data collected by the third-party analytics firm ?? The thing is browser fingerprinting is an underhanded practice cuz most, while they may use anti-tracking extensions, do not use anti-fingerprinting extensions and are thus unaware of and not protected against the deployment of browser fingerprinting. In addition, it's permanent -- it can't be defeated or remediated by cleaning cache and cookies etc. IMHO, it's a bad idea for a company who otherwise, to its credit, is so centered on/protective of customer privacy.
  9. Why is a visit to Emsisoft Blog Page on browser-crypto-mining triggering a Browser Canvas Fingerprinting Warning by Canvas Defender in FF 56 and Chrome ????????? FP ??
  10. EAM does show as "on" in the Control Panel App ("search" > "Control Panel")
  11. The accumlated EIS loyalty years are intended to be applicable to new EAM licenses of Pre-Oct 2 EIS license holders. Did you try to renew by "Renewing an EAM License" and entering your license code? If that does not work looks like cuz of your circumstances might have to submit a CS ticket.
