  1. When creating a rule, I would recommend specifying what ports you would like the rule to apply to.
  2. If there's any active infections on your system, then the Malware Scan will find it. If you want to scan more than that, then feel free to define a Custom Scan with the options you want and the hard drives you want to scan.
  3. Of course. It means I already knew the answer.
  4. No, it shouldn't be needed.
  5. You can use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware if you would like to, however it is not required.
  6. EAM and EIS are essentially the same software, and the only real difference is the firewall component that comes with EIS. The only real restriction when it comes to EIS and compatibility with other security software is the network filter driver from the firewall, as bad things usually happen when more than one firewall has a network filter driver installed at the same time (this is why disabling the firewall in one product is not enough to avoid compatibility issues with another firewall).
  7. I think it's been more than 6 months since I have seen reports about compatibility issues between Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Kaspersky Internet Security. If you do encounter any issues, then adding exclusions to prevent them from monitoring each other should resolve them.
  8. OK. Hopefully the HTTP headers logged by Fiddler will give us an idea of why this is happening.
  9. I'll send you a 30-day license key in a private message.
  10. Yes, Emsisoft Internet Security can provide good protection when banking. Aside from the 2 anti-virus engines to maximize detection, the Behavior Blocker and firewall will give you alerts when anything not automatically trusted tries to perform a potentially malicious behavior or tries to connect to the Internet.
  11. Please download and install Fiddler 2 from this link (this is the version that requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0), and then follow the instructions below: After installing Fiddler, please open it from the Start Menu. Launch Emsisoft Anti-Malware. Click on Settings in the menu at the top. Click on Updates in the menu at the top Click on the Proxy settings button on the right side, in the middle. Check the box that says Use proxy. Enter localhost in the Server field, and then enter 8888 in the Port field. Click OK. Click the Update now button above the Proxy settings button. After the update fails, go back to Fiddler, and to File, then Save, and select All Sessions (please save it on your desktop). Please send me the Fiddler log in a Private Message (do not post in in a reply). Note that you may need to ZIP the log to be able to attach it to a Private Message. If you don't have a utility such as 7-Zip, WinZip, or WinRar that you can ZIP files and folders by right-clicking on them, going to Send To, and clicking on Compressed (zipped) Folder.
  12. Three security softwares on the same computer will cause performance issues. Those issues may not be bad, but you will still see a noticeable decrease in performance (especially on startup). Exclusions can reduce the impact of having that many security softwares, and they can reduce the potential for other problems. Feel free to try it without exclusions first just to see if its OK (all of our software can be uninstalled in Safe Mode if necessary), and you can add exclusions if you encounter any issues.
  13. I recommend adding exclusions to Emsisoft Internet Security and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and see if that helps. In Malwarebytes Anti-Malware you can just add the Emsisoft Internet Security folder, and that should be enough. Here's a couple of links to articles on the Malwarebytes website about adding exclusions: https://www.malwarebytes.org/support/guides/mbam/MalwareExclusions.html https://support.malwarebytes.org/customer/portal/articles/1835329-how-do-i-stop-malwarebytes-anti-malware-from-blocking-scanning-a-file-or-program-that-i-trust-?b_id=6438 The folder you will want to add should be the following: C:\Program Files (x86)\Emsisoft Internet Security In Emsisoft Internet Security, I recommend adding the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware folder to the whitelist as a Folder exclusion, and adding several of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware files to the whitelist as Process exclusions. The malwarebytes Anti-Malware folder should be the following: C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Here's some instructions on adding a Folder exclusion in Emsisoft Internet Security: Open Emsisoft Internet Security from the icon on the desktop. Click Protection. Select File Guard in the menu at the top. On the right side, roughly in the middle, click on the Manage whitelist button. In the box under Type click the little down arrow and select Folder (you may need to click in the box for the arrow appear). Click in the gray box below Item to make a button with three dots (...) appear, and then click the ... button. Navigate to the directory you wish to exclude, select it, and click OK at the bottom to add it. Click the OK button at the bottom when done, and close Emsisoft Internet Security. Here's the files that will need to be added: C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbam.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamscheduler.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe Feel free to add any other executable files you find in the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware folder as well. Here are instructions on adding processes to the whitelist in Emsisoft Internet Security: Open Emsisoft Anti-Malware from the icon on the desktop. Click Protection. Select File Guard in the menu at the top. On the right side, roughly in the middle, click on the Manage whitelist button. In the box under Type click the little down arrow and select Process (you may need to click in the box for the arrow appear). Click in the gray box below Item to make a button with three dots (...) appear, and then click the ... button. Navigate to the directory where the files you wish to exclude are located, and double-click on one of them to add it. Repeat the last 3 steps as needed to add each file to the exclusions list. Click the OK button at the bottom when done, and close Emsisoft Internet Security.
  14. Generally alerts are only displayed when something on your computer that isn't trusted or automatically allowed initiates a connection or something not trusted/allowed performs a behavior that could be considered malicious. Network-based attacks would be blocked silently. If you have more than one computer on your local network, then you can test this with tools like Nmap (an open source port scanning tool).
  15. You can stop the detection by removing the file from the Quarantine. You can also disable the Quarantine rescan in the settings.
  16. Yes, it should have been fixed some time on Sunday.
  17. Direct Disk Access (DDA) isn't required to scan for rootkits, as there are usually other more efficient ways to find them. DDA just assumes that the rootkit can be found by searching for files hidden from the Windows file input/output API's. It takes a very long time to do this type of scan, and it can cause compatibility issues with other software or even strange crashing issues if there are errors in the filesystem on the hard drive.
  18. If there was nothing listening to the port, then the port scan should have showed the port as closed since the connection would have timed out. Something must have replied on that port for it to be perceived as 'open'. Were you running the port scan via a website? If so, does your Internet connection go through a router or a modem that has Network Address translation (NAT)?
  19. Microsoft let me know that they fixed this around 9:00 PM (EDT) on Monday. Here's the updated VirusTotal report: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/ae76f4b8d8b933ecae8429a014a8235bce1510ad92904b8ee1d5f473a053e6aa/analysis/1428988682/
  20. Yep, that's correct. It basically allows you to block certain types of behavior without blocking a program from running.
  21. The Windows firewall isn't necessary when Emsisoft Internet Security is installed.
