  1. I am having a similar issue, but not entirely related to incomplete updates. My updates do indeed complete, however they EAM creates a bucketload of connection endpoints while it starts-performs-completes the update process. Not long ago, I counted approximately 170 endpoints during an update (via a lil' app called TCP View). They grow as the update continues. About a minute or two after exiting,, the endpoints slowly disappear in chunks of 4-6 at a time. All other behavior is as expected, importing exporting settings, scans etc... I read somewhere this update issue was rectified, unless I am dreaming...
  2. Good luck in finding the culprit bit of code Sir... just encountered it for the first time, and thanks for the post in this thread about restarting the file... for me it was a2start... a2guard and a2service were still running as per norm...
  3. I know this comment is off topic, but I thought I'd ask the leader of Emsisoft How's Windows 8.1 treating you? Have you been using it for long? Apart from the user interface side of things, are there much differences? (eg: newer versions of Direct-X, IE etc...)
  4. Doubt you need that ******** Windows Defender when you have EAM installed. Windows Updates still provide you with the malicious software download every month, even if Windows Defender is stopped and disabled in Windows Services... **possibly offensive word edited out by moderation
  5. I stopped, then disabled MBAM Scheduler in Windows Services... the delay experienced at startup is no longer present.
  6. Uninstall and reinstall worked for me. I only noticed the a2framework error today. Will update this post if it pops up again. Thanks!
  7. Consider this a false alarm. I had an ticked option in SSP, should've been unticked. My apologies!
  8. I think there is an overlap between EAM v9 and SpyShelter Premium v9. Mind you, this was doing my head in even with EAM v8, but I had no clue what was causing it, since I use a number of security applications. So I went and reinstalled Windows, did all the usual updates, and first thing I installed was SpyShelter Premium v9. Then I went ahead and installed EAM v9 Beta, and SSP did kick up an alert. So I continued to install EAM v9 via SSP Installer Mode. All worked well. I also added the SSP executable into File Guard / Whitelist as a process with 3 ticks. Then I tried to install something else, and SSP was silent. So, in EAM, I paused protection to see if SSP would provide me with an alert... and it did! Now I am questioning myself... in an Emsisoft forum thread I saw someone say that SSP is a HIPS (might have been catprincess as a nickname, not too sure), hence I decided to replace Online Amor with SSP. Now I am wondering if I need to remove SSP altogether or disable an EAM guard, since whitelisting wasn't good enough. Thoughts?
  9. I'd like to weigh in here... the "boot time is slower" issue has nothing to do with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. I recently did a full format of my PC, restored it with the original image that I made after arriving home with the PC. I performed all the Windows updates along with other driver updates. The boot time was incredibly fast. The first application I installed afterwards was Emsisoft Anti-Malware. This is when the black screen hang-time started (black/blank screen between Starting Windows and Windows Logon). I think all was fine with EAM v7, it started happening when v8 came around. Not really fussed, what's 8-12 seconds of my life, just wanted to remove MBAM as the cause of it.
  10. HOLY CRAP! Unchecking "Filter invalid MAC addresses (according to IEEE OUI listing)" worked! My OA Firewall Status window shows the VPN IP, along with online IP checking websites! OH MY GOSH! Thanks so much Rob and GT500!!! P.S.: How do you think the above setting caused this issue? I am assuming that because the IEEE listing doesn't cover new VPN's, then it totally barred OA permission to let the VPN through (or vice versa)?
  11. Ok, I will give it a shot and see what it pops up. FYI, I run my OA in Advanced Mode.
  12. Hi GT500... I just added the VPN software to the Exclusions list. I also added the VPN software executable that popped up in OA to the EAM exclusions list. The problem/issue is still there. I noticed this error came up in the VPN software... Thu Nov 21 08:20:49 2013 ROUTE: route addition failed using CreateIpForwardEntry: The object already exists. Thu Nov 21 08:20:49 2013 Route addition via IPAPI failed [adaptive] Thu Nov 21 08:20:49 2013 Route addition fallback to route.exe It could possible be an issue with the routing table, is this the same as the Hosts file or am I mistaken? Thanks for all your help...
  13. Hi GT500... Did the Emsisoft Team manage to fix this bug? I've been checking the Hosts tab for the past 2 days, and it is now working like a charm... just wondering if that is due to the teams efforts or not... take care bud!
  14. Sorry for the delay in reply GT500... Yes, it does have OA Helper Driver in the list!
