    Okay, I think I found the file.  It turned out to be in the "System storage\system\priv-app\dm" folder.  Please let me know if I did something wrong in the process of saving and/or uploading the file.

    You say EAM has no issue with this file, did you ask McAfee why they flagged it?

    Perhaps just change your passwords anyway and it will set your mind at rest as you say that is what concerns you.

    Sure.

    Not if you can't make EAM work and you're offline.

     

    Jeremy the issue I am posting is about the information in the help file which is obsolete when accessessed via the GUI question mark symbol..

    If you wish to bring up a different issue about no access to it if you are offline please start a new thread.

    It's no longer built-in.  It's out there on the web, which gives users a problem if their internet connection isn't working.

    The question mark is built in to the GUI and that is what users will click on.

    Whether it is online or not is immaterial.


  4. From the GUI click the ? for the help file.

     Behavior Blocker and Anti-Ransomware section. Lookup online doesn't exist anymore.

    'Comprehensive guide' link at bottom leads to a page which says 'Security solutions that do not suck' Not a very professional webpage headline..

    Comprehensive guide talks about green ticks in BB..they no longer exist.

    Comprehensive guide shows how to use the 'lookup online'  with a nice screenie. Non existent now.

    File Guard Comprehensive guide contains a section on how to ''Only scan files with specific extensions'' Non existent now.

    Just a few things I noticed in the built in help file.:)

    The beta announcement doesn't appear to mention anything about a BSoD fix, although they may have left it out of the changelog:
    https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/257042-malwarebytes-41-beta/?do=findComment&comment=1395736

    I took my info from the Bleeping article.

    These performance issues ranged from a slow down of the operating system, random freezes, stuttering in videos, and BSOD crashes.

    We'll see I guess.

    As i said, I can't restore it.  It remains maximized no matter what i do.

    What screen size scaling do you have for your machine? Also what is your display resolution.

    Default, 125% or bigger?

    (Start ..settings..display... scale and layout.)

    Are you using Windows 10?

    nice one - might be worth checking, over the coming days, that EAM registers in wsc each time you restart/turn on the machine as I had the same problem but it was intermittent - sometimes EAM registered after boot but sometimes not - I had to reinstall EAM in the end to fix it

    First time it's happened to me marko. It would be nice if EAM gave some indication that it had not registered in WSC and that Defender was doing scans and downloading definitions.


  8. Today at boot I got the Windows notification sound. It was Defender telling me it had cleaned 5 items (they will be eicar) It does not say when this 'clean' occurred.

    There is nothing in Defender history or quarantine.

    I have the latest cumulative for Win 10 2004 installed (now on build 19041.388)

    It is not possible to work out when this happened or what they found.

    Going here to show latest Defender info doesn't help, I mean some of the entries there are strange. but perhaps as a result of the Cumulative?

    Event viewer..Application and Service logs..Microsoft..Windows..Windows Defender..Operational

    Debug logs and screenies attached.

  9. I have 5 eicar test files I use in my scans. I have report only selected.

    If I right-click on one of the files in the scan results and select 'invert' it de-selects it.

    It seems a very strange word to use for that action.


  10. I don't think you were incorrect, I just think you'd didn't know about how it works :)

    Notice that compatibility mode offers many choices ranging from Windows 95 up to Windows 8. Also notice that you can even choose to run your program in compatibility mode for different service packs of the same operating system.

    Note that in Windows 10, there is a new option called Compatibility Troubleshooter, which will scan the program for you and try to figure out the best settings automatically

    Taken from here, have a little read.

    I used the free version .  Perhaps that makes a difference although I doubt it as my download was from your link.

    I will try yo make the time to replicate my installation so I can post a pik here. I am busy at the moment.

    I also use the free version :)
