  1. Update went well and all seems ok.

    Did you know Frank that if you forget a scan is running in tray, and you do a context menu sca, the cursor freezes a bit while it has a think and then just carries on as if you hadn't asked it to do that¬†ūüėÄ


  2. Have a read of this blog batman, it may give you more info.

    Solutions that use a combination of protection technologies will likely provide better security than a product that is entirely AI-based. For example, Emsisoft leverages the power of AI and machine learning as well as other protection technologies such as behavioral analysis and signature checkers.

    Personally i see no sense in this behavior, but i guess it would for some and that's why its still there.

    If I didn't restart my PC for weeks then someone would be able to see that I scanned a folder called ''stapp's night out with a strange man'  before I removed the folder. :o


  4. Updated manually on Win 10 1909.

    Whenever I do a right-click scan with EAM on something on my desktop for example, a separate entry for a2start appears in the logs folder (ProgramData)

    Why is that?

    If I have a folder and do a context menu scan on it, it automatically gets stored in the custom scan settings and will stay there until I do another context menu scan on a different item. It will then replace the previous item in the custom scan settings.

    Why is that?

    I do understand that context menu and custom scans are the same, but right-click scan with EAM tend to be one offs, and so I don't see why they should be stored as a custom scan entry in the GUI.

      I was in the same situation on a different forum till I got a wake up call 

    Jeremy is not in a 'situation' and needs no wake up call. Please don't assume things about people.

    He is a valued forum member and tester who donates his time to helping Emsisoft and therefore others members and users.

    @GT500  is the Emsiclean you're suggesting the OP use any different from the the one they will have used (as described in their first post)?

    Probably not. But as GT500 had no idea what wallacegal did with the Emsiclean she  first used, that is more than likely why he asked for a DiagLog first before giving detailed instructions on how he wanted Emsiclean it run..

    didn't you tell Defender to ignore that file ? maybe you could check the defender exclusions list.

    Ah yes I did :)

    I forgot about that as I had downloaded and run a new version of EEK to test the usb thing.


  8. In EEK settings you can select to enable beta updates. Then you just update. If you want to go back to the stable version you just de-select the beta option and update)

    Everything is the same except you are using the latest beta version (remember it is a beta.)
