    Just tested this and I can confirm that Updates and connection with Emsisoft Cloud Console are not blocked.

    The reason I posted was because the manual update button showed no response yesterday when on network lockdown. I shall test it again later.

    I can understand why you have posted the warnings (even if the lock is shown on the EAM taskbar icon)

  2. I see that the way you have gotten around this is to give no notification at all now when the 'ok' button is pressed to clear all logs and reset folders. The only reason you know it has been successful is that Forensics is empty.

  3. Win 10 2004 

    Beta 10381

    May I ask why it has been decided to show this when using network lockdown?    EAM updates  are no longer allowed through when in lockdown.

    They used to be.

    I was slightly confused with the 2nd warning as there was no X to close it but then seen it was movable. Trouble was it was in the way of my CCleaner ''run Cleaner button''.  I use EAM  network lockdown as a quick way to stop the CCleaner phone home etc :)

    Emsisoft updates every hour,  but I do not receive a notifications alert box anymore (right center) saying that it did update. I read a previous post that I should unchecked and rechecked the box (start on windows startup--I did) and the notifications alert still does not show. I running on Windows 64 platform.

    Yes I agree, although that's a minor cosmetic issue.

    The problem I have is that if I want to pause, or disable, EAM while I install some software (or drivers) that require a reboot during the installation process, there doesn't seem any way to do that because EAM re-enables the protection during reboot.


    Does it make any difference if you untick Start on Windows Start Up in Advanced Settings?

      I'd expect it to pause for 60 minutes and stay that way if I reboot, until 60 minutes has elapsed - if I wanted it to pause until reboot, I'd use that option instead.

    Didn't pick that up when I read your post. Good point.

    Actually having Disable for both the 'Pause' option and the 'Protection Status' is confusing. It should say Pause for 10 minutes etc.

    I just paused protection for 60 minutes via the EAM tray icon right-click menu, then rebooted, and the protection enabled itself even though 60 minutes hadn't elapsed - is this how it should behave ?

    Just guessing here Marko, but that is how I would expect it to behave. A new Windows session starts everything over again ?

    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.

    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.

  11. 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:

    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?
