  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 to use EIS because it's just a little amount of effort to set up it's firewall module. Even my old boss is happy with it and doesn't want to change security app believing (still) that it will not push through (sorry to her). It maybe that you are a "techy" because you loved Online Armor because it will take a lot from you setting it correctly/making it run in the leanest possible setting to not bother your everyday work but other people are not like you/us.

    Does O&O Shut up take care of this?

    Firewall discussion

    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. Less is only for Emsisoft (as they will not think anymore of firewalls per se) and not the user (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 burden is on the user, not Emsisoft. Chances are they will be looking for a suite that's an "install and leave" because, "are not very well versed with setting up a firewall". A lot of us came to like EIS (though I feel there's something more to be done about the firewall logs --more information). It's not hard to set-up plus the default setting with the in-built rules for the user to actually adapt is user friendly. But the burden has been passed-on to the user now and we will be all left without that firewall module we came to love in exchange for additional/extension of the license. So the question now is a week or two after the final change...to stay or not to stay...that is the question. If Emsisoft's goal is to reach that lower-end crowd who is the "install/leave-kind" (just as I remember when it discontinued Online Armor and shifted to EIS) then this direction isn't for them because of the additional burden/work to achieve the same level o security. You are actually making them to re-think and see what else is out there. Online Armor was labeled as "geek-only" (learned to use it after some months/year of checking it out), but the new EAM user (especially the crowd that I am mentioning) will need a geek to teach them setting-up the Windows firewall, get something else or get something to augment/strengthen EAM) to have that same level of security that EIS has provided. So goes the question (a week or two after the final change)...to stay or not to stay...that is the question.
  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!

    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?

    EAM questions

    Hello GT500, I tried that the first time I had installed EAM/OA and got the bcdedit.exe error the first time. I thought that it was EasyBCD that is being blocked or somewhat conflicting with EAM and OA. In OA I placed the exclusions and also allowed iReboot / Easybcd.exe in the firewall. It was only when I had to exit/re-start iReboot everytime I was to boot to the other partitions that I had the inkling that it might be iReboot that's conflicting and not EasyBCD. When I checked both folders has "bcdedit.exe". Even when I removed the exclusions for, C:\Program Files\NeoSmart Technologies\iReboot still had the error. There was also no pop-ups(still at iReboot ver1.0). I upgraded to iReboot 1.1.1 from 1.0 and it disappeared. No errors of the same kind but pop-ups occurred specifically for iReboot.

    I was to edit but was not allowed.... Anyway, kindly see the 4th image. The Mobile Broadband Connection shows an "X" there when using RAS(modem). When it's NDIS that connection does not show an "X". Is something further wrong here...? I am getting confused...

    @GT500, The connection is wireless and the OA Helper driver is there but I was shocked to see a "Comodo Internet Security Firewall Driver" is also there. This is using RAS(modem) See image. This partition had previously CISver5.12 as it's firewall. Prior to uninstalling it and using it's cleaner. From there I installed EAM/OA --which now is Avira/OA. I do not know about the partition with EAM/OA as both are the same. I'll check it later and post with NDIS and the other partition. This is using NDIS Now I mentioned it's wireless and I also checked the properties of the mobile plug-it(seems it should have been this..correct?). In NDIS, In RAS(modem), Both allows connection but using NDIS I don't have the firewall status. @trujwin, I change it via the interface gui of the Mobile broadband application.

    I booted to the other partition with EAM/OA and it was the same. See image with connection type: NDIS below. Will wait for your assistance on some explanations Thanks again!
