  1. I'm aware of the OEM partitions, they are all listed under drive D:\. There was no trace of Z:\ in either Windows Explorer or Disk Manager until Wednesday, and any attempt to access it was kicked back with a permissions error from Windows. Either way, all traces of Z:\ disappeared this morning almost as mysteriously as it appeared.
  2. So if its not infected, where did it come from? Its not every day a new hard drive partition creates itself. Fixlog.txt
  3. So I'm sitting in class today when EIS pops up on my laptop with a notification of a new external storage device. I didn't plug anything in but I went ahead and opened up Windows Explorer to find drive Z:\ magically appearing in my drive list. I've ruled out every logical explanation except a possible malware infection. EIS and Hitman Pro (which I'm including as well) have both struck out and I'm out of options.

  4. Please clarify for me: is the firewall active status im seeing a false reading?
  5. Thats my point: its working and I don't have beta updates enabled
  6. Has the update come out yet? I had to carry out a reinstall for issues seprate from this problem just after 9:15 ET, and it shows the firewall is working fine. And no, beta updates aren't enabled.
  7. So, I don't know what happened, but it works correctly again. After following your directions, the next update included a patch to the file a2wsc.dll. I figured that as this was a dll file, and would probably require a service restart anyway (thereby messing up the data you needed), I would try reproducing it later. But when I tried it later, it started working again. If it starts acting up again, I'll send the logs, but for now its working perfectly.
  8. Since yesterday's update to v9.0.0.4570, EAM has required me to restart the service every time it downloads new signatures. I'm guessing that this isin't normal, and I'm sure that these hourly security lapses aren't a good idea. Any idea as to why its doing this?
  9. Alright, it had been awhile so I started wondering.
  10. Any info on that bug report? I don't mean to be pushy, but its been well over a week.
  11. There are no specific apps. Its any of them that I attempt to install in general.
  12. The free upgrade from the windows store from 8 to 8.1
  13. Before, but I had to reinstall because some components of OA didn't come through right
