  1. I might have done in the past. At the moment OA is not showing 'remove password', indicating that (it thinks) none has been set up, so I will try adding a new one. If I receive the error only when a password is not set, then I will stick to having a password for now. Perhaps a clean re-installation to a different program files directory might help solve it. My system after a thorough malware scan seems to be fine. Thanks
  2. I have had the free most recent version of Online Armor installed for some time, and only recently I have had a message pop up during startup to enter a password. The program has not been tampered with, and malwarebytes avast superantispyware etc detect no issues of infection on the system. Could it be a registry or related OA issue? If I enter a random password, I usually get 'password error' but I am certain that 'invalid password' has popped up before, similar to this old post from 2011:- http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/4147-oa-free-asking-for-a-password/ I could not work out which p
  3. sorry, my fault-I may have been confusing "hosts file" above with 'prevhost.exe' in my first post. I also thought there might have been a way to read information from the 'prevhost.exe' service, that might indicate how/what/when communications to these websites might have taken place, but I think from your reply that is not how 'prevhost.exe' works, and probably isnt readable to a general viewer, unless they understand binary or whatever language is used, haha. I think I have more understanding of it now, and feel better in the knowledge that websites shown in brackets also show what websites
  4. I am using the latest free version of online armor. I have noticed that with certain known files that I believe are usually safe, such as C:/Program Files/Common Files/Java/Javaupdate/jusched.exe, I am getting the same website information next to it yet again: C:/Program Files/Common Files/Java/Javaupdate/jusched.exe Outgoing TCP access allowed to: (tpb.tracker.microsoftarecrazy.net;www.applemad.org) so I have some short questions, just a yes or no 1-is the 'tpb.tracker' website shown in brackets above, simply history, and only related to 'jusched.exe' or whatever exe is
  5. thanks, thats a bit clearer I have malwarebytes,spywareblaster and avast antivirus installed, along with windows own (defender+UAC). Perhaps one of those added the website to the host file, but how can I find out what software on the system is attempting to connect to these websites or trackers? I have just received another similar message in the OA history, yet all the system is doing is browsing this website.
  6. II have cleared my online armor history.. but after a few hrs Im still getting the same odd messages in history, sometimes with the same random websites in brackets-its still, but not the same googleupdate.exe and prevhost.exe files anymore. The rest of the time OA seems to be allowing temporary files to access the internet, for example: AppData/Local/Temp/TRPg9F9sA.exe.part was trusted automatically C:/Windows/Temp/Runboot-temp .5accd8tc-7b7evt7-22db7d8 Outgoing TCP access allowed to: (tpb.tracker.microsoftarecrazy.net;www.applemad.org) perhaps im worrying
  7. So my computer trying to connect to itself.. is a result of this pc trying to connect to bad addresses? ..and the websites listed in brackets in the OA pop up (below) are just a history, and not necessarily linked to the exe files themselves in the same OA window? Im not sure what a dns server is needed for, if its referring to my internet provider or the server hosting the 'bad' website my system has connected to.. but.. thanks. I havent received any more odd messages as of yet, in full they were odd, along the lines of Created 05/02/2012 16:26:01 Summary Firewall: Automatic de
  8. Im not very technical and dont understand what is meant by 'udp' or a 'dns reply', so im not 100% clear on your reply-but thanks anyway I used to think that was always a reference to any current computer that I use. I didnt think that could be a reference to any other. So are the addresses or trackers listed in brackets, in-between "Outgoing UDP access allowed to:" and "" ...are simply addresses that use the same that my computer has connected to in the past? Slightly confused I still dont understand the relation between the prevhost.exe and googl
  9. I am using the freeware version of OA - it gave me 2 pop ups earlier today with "C:\Windows\system32\prevhost.exe" Outgoing UDP access allowed to: tdp.tracker.. 61702" and "C\Program Files\Google\Update\GoogleUpdate.exe: Outgoing UDP access allowed to: tdp.tracker.. 58610" The tracker is identical in both and the tracker address suggests an untrustworthy website, but I have scanned the system and also uploaded both prevhost.exe and GoogleUpdate.exe to various multiscan websites, which all suggest the files are clean. Is there a way I can find out through OA exactly
