  1. Websites trying to exploit Java expect it to be running as a plugin in your browser, and they run a Java program called an Applet in your web browser that attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in the Java Sandbox (the security features in the Java Virtual Machine that prevent Applets from making changes to your computer). I doubt that a download that you are running through JDownloading could expose you to a Java exploit, unless you were on a webpage that had a malicious Java Applet on it.
  2. I'm sorry, I meant when you reinstalled Online Armor. It is capable of doing an upgrade install, and I was wondering if you had done the upgrade, or just did a fresh install of Online Armor.
  3. The OA Helper Driver is the driver that allows Online Armor to intercept network traffic, so basically the firewall doesn't work at all without it. Do you run Online Armor in Advanced Mode?
  4. I won't be doing anything to Andrey. OA isn't written in Java, and that's the only programming language I know, so Andrey stays right where he is. Disenchantment?
  5. Lets get an OTL log and see if it shows the cause of the issue. Please run OTL by following the instructions below: Click this link to save OTL onto your desktop (please make sure to click 'Save' instead of 'Run'). Double click on the OTL icon on your desktop to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted. Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan will take a few minutes. When the scan completes, it will open two Notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. The first one (OTL.txt) will be automatically saved
  6. I have a potential workaround for the issue, but it hasn't been tested yet. I posted it in the forum topic that joe53 linked to, however I did not post step-by-step instructions for making it work.
  7. Done. Batch files are in attached ZIP archive (one that sets the timeout to 60 seconds, one that sets it to 120 seconds, and one that deletes the workaround): Your computer will probably need to be restarted after running one of these batch files, and you will need to right-click on a batch file and run it as administrator or it will not be able to change the registry entry it needs to edit. Also, please be aware that this changes the timeout for all services on your computer, and not just the Emsisoft Anti-Malware service. It is best to delete it once our developers have been able to fix
  8. Our developers believe it is just the Host Rules (the list of malicious websites to block) that has grown too large. The amount of RAM your computer has is fine, however the 1.83GHz processor (especially if it is a laptop) would probably be too slow for our current Host Rules. Microsoft does appear to have instructions on how to do that at this link. I will look in to creating a batch file that can automate the process.
  9. Based on what I am reading from a quick Google search, this [email protected]@@k.dll file appears to be a keylogger. Lets use Emsisoft BlitzBlank to delete it. Please download Emsisoft BlitzBlank from this link, and be sure to save it on your desktop. Please also download the attached BlitzBlank_Script.txt file, and save it on your desktop as well, then follow the instructions below: Launch the Emsisoft BlitzBlank that you saved on your desktop. When it warns you that BlitzBlank is intended to be used by experts or with expert guidance, go ahead and click the 'OK' button. In the middle near the t
  10. 127.0.0.1 is an address that always points to the computer the software is running on (the alias for this is 'localhost'). rts.sparkstudios.com has a poor rating on Web Of Trust, mostly for spam but some have rated it for malware as well. It is not listed in hpHosts, VXVault, or Malware Domain List.
  11. Do you have any other security software installed?
  12. Right now we don't know if they are all caused by the same thing, so we are taking each case as a separate issue.
  13. Do you have any other security software installed, or is it just Online Armor and Windows Defender?
  14. OK. Let us know when you have the logs. (I'd put a winking smiley face here, but that didn't go over well the last time)
  15. RTF files are not efficient for data storage. A database file, such as SQLite, would be far better and faster. So would XML, but I doubt Andrey would want to rewrite OA to save data in XML format. I believe that the information takes a while to load because it is being pulled from the service's memory rather than from a file, however I would have to confirm that with Andrey to know for sure.
  16. After the reinstall, everything should have been OK. Did you do an upgrade or a fresh install?
  17. If you right-click on that extra Network Connection and go to 'Properties', does it have OA Helper Driver in the list?
  18. ZIP file scanning is only a part of BitDefender's scan engine, and it should only be used when running an on-demand scan of your computer. I do not believe that the Outlook add-in has ZIP file scanning integrated into it.
  19. Yes, for the vast majority of users, the issue seems to disappear after a reboot. Chances are it will come back eventually, and if possible it would be nice to get some Debug Logs. Please let us know if you do experience any further issues.
  20. I'm glad to hear that the updates are working correctly now. Go ahead and finish up with Kevin (ShadowPuterDude), and be sure to let us know if you have any further issues with the updates.
  21. Yes, he is the one helping you to clean up your computer. Go ahead and let him know about this issue, and he should be able to help you.
  22. We have determined that this issue is related to our Host Rules. On certain computers running Windows 7 (specifically slower computers such as netbooks, or ones that are older or having performance issues for other reasons) the Emsisoft Anti-Malware service does not start in time, and the Windows system that controls services terminates the service because it took too long to start. It is possible to replace the Host Rules with an older (and smaller) version to temporarily get Emsisoft Anti-Malware working again, however please note that once Emsisoft Anti-Malware updates its database it wil
