  1. The concerns are: 1) I am unhappy with the direction taken (but it's all done now). Just voicing out my unhappines and concern for the other users. 2) It has been stated there in my last reply. Am concerned about those people I mentioned especially those that are not very well versed with setting up a firewall, like the persons given as example there in my previous statement -- the average officeworker or office staff, or a grandma etc --the non-techy people). The burden is on the user(them), not Emsisoft. Not all Emsisoft users are geek or techy. I know a lot who have just learned
  2. Does O&O Shut up take care of this?
  3. The alerts that are given do not contain much information to understand most of the time I scratch my head searching what was being triggered or what is being affected. I want to understand those alerts but the logs and less information is not helping. I remember someone stating that the logs are "exhaustive" because they are quite long or abundant --something like that. Less information = less understanding.
  4. As mentioned I am unhappy with the decision BUT it's all final now so nothing's gonna change that or "us" who don't agree of the change. For those people who came to love EIS (especially those who are not into setting up a firewall like the average officeworker or office staff, or a grandma etc) will definitely consider looking some place else or swallow the bitter-pill of getting/trying to make it work with the Windows firewall. Emsisoft says, "less error in setting up ---or something like that" but it actually is "more settings to be done" to compensate for the loss of the firewall module.
  5. You guys did it before when you got rid of Online Armor... Now you are doing it again with Emsisoft Internet Security....you really are getting out of the firewall business huh....Previously you said that, Are software firewalls useless? http://blog.emsisoft.com/2014/09/19/whats-the-point-of-having-a-firewall/ Now you are abandoning all your loyal users to the default Windows Firewall.... Have a great Windows Firewall -default allow-day!!!!
  6. Quick question here. Is there a way to disable surf protection and not get the yellow color of the tray icon? I have Online Armor Premium and have been using it's Web Shield instead of EAM's. I do not want to use EAM's as a choice so I disable it. Is there a way? Thank you. Whatever happened to the resizing of the gui? It's too large!
  7. -- So sorry for it. There was no intention to hide it. Here it is in full. -- OK. --- -- I think that is the best explanation I've heard. and this one too. (below) It does have it's pro's and con's depending on the user. Trying it out is best and learning it another mattter. Learning/understanding it is best especially when you intend to use the product for the family pc. Having a food grasp of EISv9 is crucial to me as I am now distancing the mentality from being a long user of OA Premium firewall to the new Emsisoft firewall. -- OK. -- Will try that
  8. Thank you for your explanations Fabian you rock man! This is trying-out / testing really is -- understanding the product so you will get a grasp of it. Do allow me some more questions, -- Any comment on the "Block connections" and "Block all connections"....? Also on the log details, I rather think that is exhausting to the user and might just instead "allow all".....especially that you target "most users" who do not want to be inconvenienced. That is actually what I did. Allowed all and started to click "Allow/Block" in BB until I have landed on to I accepted. It took some time for me.
  9. As to the logs, there will be no way of actually checking what I may did wrong in rule setting...It will just stay there and not assist the user. So in order to correct or check what I may have done wrong I'd have to delete the rule and do it all over again. After that check it again and see what is the result, if not to my liking, I'd have to delete it again and do it all over again. This is what happened to me when EISv9 was blocking the launch of Minitool Partition Wizard. I thin think that is exhausting to the user and might just instead "allow all"..... So in EISv9 we cannot se
  10. Continuing my trial of EISv9. Some questions if I may.... I was fiddling with the rules creation earlier and there where pop-ups that EIS threw. When I checked the logs and double-clicked an item I could not get any details of any log there. Along the process of launching programs (after rules creation) I needed to review/check what I may did wrong or what needs to be corrected. As I see it all the logs you cannot review or see details or additional info except that in the Firewall logs which have a "App rule added". Firewall logs with "App rule added". Can there be
  11. I just took the plunge and installed EIS 9 Beta. At first it went well until I tried to import my config for EAM and then the gui changed from EIS to EAM! So I uninstalled and did a clean install again. See images below. Would it be possible to have a way to copy a created rule from another application? It's a bit time consuming to do rules creation from scratch and there are similar rules that I use for, say, media players and image editors...is that possible? I seem to see that every update I have a pop-up that I have to restart. Is that normal? Have seen it around 3x now
  12. Okay will do and report back here. Thanks.
  13. Hello GT500, Thanks for the reply. It is strange as using Comodo's own cleaner removes all traces of it even the browsers like Dragon and Ice Dragon. I checked the installed programs and the Comodo's driver is not listed there. Here is a snapshot of Revo Uninstallers Installed apps. Where should I check?
