  1. I know you said all your computers are using dynamic IP... but can I just check? You do mean they're all on your network? If they ARE on your network, why are you using dymaic IP - is it so that if/when the machines are taken elsewhere and use dynamic IP elsewhere, you don't have to change the way they're set up? Arthur commented above on the advisability (or not) of allowing traffic to/from all addresses... but if the machines are on a network then surely you only need to allow that traffic to/from the IP addresses that are valid on your network, not the entire outside world? On the other hand, if one of these computers IS in the outside world then apart from rules in both machines' EIS firewalls, there might be a problem in the firewall component of your router (if you have one) - it may not be passing all the required inbound traffic to the target machine.
  2. Ok, that makes more sense. Remember that as well as the tooltip the help file (somewhat wordier) would benefit from this more detailed explanation. One thing though, by no means every user of an email client would thing of such files as /archives/ - if you're using an offline reader, especially if POP3 rather than IMAP, the files are (or could be) the live mails, not archived old ones.
  3. > I'm having the same issues with my clients running Windows 10 Pro along with Trend Micro Worry Free Business Security Advanced. Why are you even trying to install EAM on machines that have some other security product on them? What happens if you uninstall the Trend thing first?

Though... IS that an issue? It's what I'd expect to have happen, Surely you wouldn't want the window to open on a non-connected second screen? (Having said that I know most/all of the multi-screen control software has facilities for moving windows around automatically.) > e issue you describe is 'quite' corner case however we might fix this. Yes! The bottom righthand corner of the screen. (I know what you mean... the trouble is that if it happens it's hard for anyone to know what's happened; whether they can then get out of the problem depends on their level of knowledge and/or access to programmers' utilities.)
  5. Elise: ok, that makes enough sense, thank-you.
  6. Elise: so, it's not the creation of that sub-folder by some version of VLC that's suspicious, but the way in which that is attempted? Is that because that (API or whatever) can be used to issue other commands, and/or EIS doesn't see what the command involved is?
  7. Elise, thank-you, that worked. Back to my question though, does the exploit blocker pay attention to which version of a program is to be blocked?
  8. Stapp means, I think, "just press once to get a new paragraph" (which is what the double spacing is). More to the point, don't press Enter at all at the end of a normal line... just keep typing. Or compose the text somewhere else and c&p it in.
  9. Hmm, I'd not noticed that c&p resulted in single spacing! Unlike stapp I tend just to press Enter at the ends of limes... and get double spacing too (Grrr!). The only way to get single spacing otherwise is to just keep on typing so that the text wraps very long sentences as - hopefully - you'll see with this one.
  10. Likewise; smooth for EIS on Win8.1 x64.
  11. I happened to notice this. I just tried the same thing in VLC 2.2.5.1. Does the exploit-blocker take into account the version of VLC one is running?
  12. Back in the ... 1990s, if not a little earlier, the IBM mainframes I worked with all had a virtual layer in them, and you could make each one (with, say 4 cpus and specific number of other features, RAM etc) appear to be several separate 'LPAR's with proportions of the real resources allocated to each one. The proportions could be fixed or, I think, dynamic though I don't think we (a UK bank) ever did the latter. Around the time I stopped working (through illness) the OS and major applications (database systems etc) were being changed so they could migrate work not just between LPARs on one mainframe, but between sets of co-operating mainframes. And as you say, the aim was to get as near as possible to 100% uptime. On my PCs I've not yet tried VMs, but I do plan to, mainly because I want to get to know Linux or maybe BSD Unix. I know (from running an emulated ARM architecture with RISC OS on it, under Windows) that beng able to switch between windows is a much easier way of playing with two OSes at once than a 'dual-boot' machine. And I particularly like the idea of snapshots for rescuing me from accidents on a strange new OS.
  13. Using EIS on Win8.1 x64 That was: "Improved: Main program windows position when the program opens outside of the visible desktop". If this is in response to my problem report: then I'm afraid I find no difference in behaviour. A main window that's mostly dragged off-screen, on which one 'accidentally' clicks on the 'Emsisoft' logo and consequently has the About pane open, still opens that pane off-screen where one cannot know that that has happened (on W8.1 anyway). There's no clue in the thumbnail one gets on the taskbar, and one can't drag the main window back on to the screen. If it's a fix for something else, then it would help to know what that is!
