  1. Hi, Thanks for the feedback. I do not think Avira Premium Version 10 has made the situation with WebGuard any better. laopa
  2. Hi, Given that I have dumped ASC3 and have Emsisoft Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware all set as "on demand" back up scanners and not as Services, I do not see these as an issue. Do you? Are you both saying that using SpywareBlaster, Spybot S&D, HostFiles and Sandboxie is a bad idea based on the proven fact that they individually or in combination adversely affect PC performance, Internet Speed or Overall system security? Is that a theoretical concern or a concern based upon hard proven facts and data. Very interested to hear back. laopa
  3. Hi, Sorry I thought this was the right place. The Anti-Malware version I have was a replacement for A2 Free and while I had a full License which expired, the version I have now states that it is Version and License Expired - Freeware Mode Active. So I am guessing that it is only in passive mode. Isn't that what I now have. And I should post my EAM Free topics in which section? Toolkit? I am fairly sure that Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware are in disabled mode and on demand only. I can check by ....? The "thing was the recent (maybe months ago) problem between Online Armor and Avira. I do not believe that is an issue any longer and have followed all the mutual exclusion rules advice given on this and the Avira forums to ensure that Online Armor and Avira are as happy together as is possible. Thanks for getting back. laopa
  4. Hi, I am currently having Internet speed problems with Avira AntiVir Premium WebGuard when it is Enabled. The latest advice I have received on the Avira Premium forum is as stated here. Quote "Hi, I see that you have a bunch of security related programs: C:\Program Files\Emsisoft\Online Armor\OAcat.exe C:\Program Files\Emsisoft Anti-Malware\a2service.exe C:\Program Files\Panda USB Vaccine\USBVaccine.exe C:\Program Files\IObit\Advanced SystemCare 3\AWC.exe C:\Program Files\SUPERAntiSpyware\SUPERAntiSpyware.exe C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI\psi.exe I recommend you to make sure that avwebgrd.exe is allowed in Online Armor's firewall, uninstall Emsisoft Anti-Malware, Advanced SystemCare 3 and SUPERAntiSpyware." Can someone please advise if there are issues with Emsisoft Anti-Malware (Free) and Avira WebGuard that would cause Internet Speed to drop? The Online Armor thing was fixed ages ago. Which leaves, in Avira's opinion as stated above, SUPERAntiSpyware (Free), ASC 3 Pro (which I will be dropping when the license expires) and you guys. As SUPERAntiSpyware (Free) and Emsisoft Anti-Malware (Free) do not have any active guards Enabled, that I know of, I just can not see it as a problem to have them as extra highly reliable passive scanners. I personally believe it is all an Avira WebGuard issue. Any clarification and advise will be greatly appreciated. laopa
  5. Hi, Not heard a peep from Emsisoft on the files I sent. Last time I got an answer back within 1 hour. Sent the thing twice, once 7-Zipped and then about 8 hours later once IZARC Zipped and Encrypted. Did get a > 69 MB update this morning. Maybe that will fix it? Back later. laopa
  6. Hi, Suitably chastised. I will work on sending the zip file of the last Smart Scan, when they again appeared, to Emsisoft and get back if and when I hear anything. Still no sure why in a reply, you need to have a quoted version of the post you are replying to, included in your own re-post. laopa
  7. Hi, I keep finding these "malware?" on my system every time to do a scan with Emsisoft Anti Malware. I quarantine them and them they are back the next time I scan. I have tried to upload them as a group and individually via Quarantine but keep getting "server error" messages. Tried sending the log file to Emsisoft and have not heard back yet. Not sure how to upload these items directly from the registry so I have not sent them to VirusTotal yet. Avira Antivirus, Malwarebytes Antimalware, SuperAntispyware, HitMan Pro do not recognize them as problems. Any ideas where they come from and how to get rid of them permanently if they are really "malware". Help. laopa
  8. Hi, At the end of the day the results are in. Sent the file to [email protected] and attached a 7Zip encrypted copy (compressed to just over 10MB) of the file to them. Heard back from [email protected] within the hour and the file was a FP that has already been fixed. Excellent support, thank you all very much. I am still assuming that there is a file size limit for quarantined files but I guess that size is reached when the Submit Button will not activate. Know what to do now if it happens again. In the above, the site I foolishly misspelt, was VIRUSTotal i.e. http://www.virustotal.com/. Regards laopa
  9. Hi, Yep it is that big. I will try to figure out the email to Emsisoft thing but I am pretty sure it is a FP. On the P.S. "blind faith" thing (based on my experience) and apart from the band, I also think it is a lot of hoohaa, I tried to upload the sucker to VisusTotal but the file was too big, I scanned it with SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, HitManPro, Avira AntiVir and I did not get the impression Online Armor was bothered by it, so then I figured it was not really a system or operational software critical program or file, so I quarantined it and tried to upload it to EmsiSoft. Then I ran into the "dead Submit Button and wondered why and asked here on the forum if there was an upload limit for quarantined files. Firing off an email to Emsisoft in the near shortly. Regards laopa
  10. Hi, It was the following. You are right, it is actually 22.3MB. Right click, file properties on the little symbol of a blue sheet of paper with folded right corner and one blue and one orange cog on it in the Google Earth \ Plugin Directory. Because I am a newbie and have blind faith in technology and technological gurus. Hope this helps. laopa
  11. Hi, When the Google Earth File was identified as a problem by Anti-Malware the other day I quarantined it. Then I went to the quarantine section and was going to send it for analysis to Emsisoft as a potential FP. When I highlighted the file, the Submit Button did not "highlight/turn blue" and would not and could not be operated. Out of frustration I restored the file and then went and checked how big it was. It was over 19.0MB and I thought that perhaps that was why I could not send it from quarantine to Emsisoft for analysis as a potential FP. My question is, is there a size restriction on files that can be submitted once quarantined via clicking the Submit File Button and if there is, is there another way to send them to Emsisoft for analysis outside of the quarantined route? If there is not a size restriction on files that can be sent from quarantine then what was the problem with the Submit File Button. Some security software limits the size of uploadable files and requires that they be "compressed/zipped/archived" before they can be sent. Is that OK? Thanks laopa
  12. Hi, Thanks for the welcome and quick reply. I will rerun a scan and see if it is picked up again. If it is a size of file issue can these be zipped and sent to Emsisoft in another way? The Send should have be the Submit File button. laopa
  13. Hi, Ran a scan with Anti-Malware ( yesterday and it identified one of the Google Earth files as being a Malware. Quarantined the file and tried to send for analysis as a FP but the Send button would not highlight and when I checked the suspect FP file was > 19.0MB. Would that be the problem. This is the second Google Earth File that Anti-Malware has not liked in as many days. Help. laopa
