    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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 :)

  6. Win 10 2004 build 10275.

    With EAM GUI window open, the minimize window does not work for me at the moment. 

    The close button works, and the expand button works.

    Clicking on the minimize button does absolutely nothing. It is dead.

  7. Win 10 2004 after auto update.

    Can I ask what the hotfix was for, and if there were any interesting tweaks please.

    (Resetting counters and logs still gives the same info in Forensics, so I guess this will be altered at a later date)


  8. Win 10 2004 after auto update.

    Sometimes I select ''clear all logs and reset folders' when I get a new build.

    When I do that it says in Forensics 'Settings restored to default''

    It gives the impression that everything in Settings has been restored to default (which is not the case)
