Report Browser excluded from Application Rules: Surf Protection not working? in Emsisoft Anti-Malware Home Posted May 30, 2012 Hello, I have an old notebook (Intel Centrino) with Windows XP SP3. Using the browser Comodo Dragon (based on Chrome), EAM slows startup of the browser and the opening of new tabs. I found that this slowdown is due to the Behavior Blocker, and I think it is related to the multi-process nature of the browser. So I excluded the process "dragon.exe" in the Application Rules, and there is no slowdown, but in this case I found out not to be protected by the Surf Protection module. Why does the exclusion in the Application Rules also disable the Surf Protection? Is it a bug or an expected behavior? Aren't the Application Rules only related to the Behaviour Blocker module? I expected to be still protected by File Guard and Surf Protection, isn't that true? I think that EAM is a good program but needs improvements, especially in performance: in addition to these slowdowns, I have experienced many slowdowns during the installation of new programs and the elimination of a bunch of executables. Thank you.
