  1. I'll stick my 1.5 cents in here.   I have several lifetime licenses I don't use any more.   That is just the nature of the beast.   You could really simplify your life by just switching to EIS, and drop all the other stuff.  Unless you have special cirumcstances as I do EIS and Sandboxie, and you are extremely well protected, with out the hassle.



  2. Totally agree! Company like emsisoft can't presume that everybody have this update installed, or any other update in the future need.


    Sorry but this is nonsense.  You guys just made microsofts case for forcing updates down everyone's throats in win 10.   All any company can do is make sure it's software works with an up to date system.  Keeping the system is up to date is the user responsibility.


    Also just how would any company be able to notify every effected user about this.  I bet the extra work would almost double the product cost.  Just think about what would go into that.

  3. Check above in the thread to be sure you have the two mozilla programs I mentioned allowed.


    What's going on is maintenanceservice actually runs as a service.  When you update Maintenanceservice.exe is called and checks your Firefox status, then it calse Update.exe from the folder you see.  That then updates firefox for you.   Kinda like scratching your left year with your right hand.

  4. Hi Morningstar


    You might want to consider removing bitdefender.   I just checked and Bitdefender seems to be causing problem with Sandboxie.  Also I don't think you need it.  I tend to take all the lovely scam emails, which I know are bad and run them against my setup.   EAM always is first to shut them down.   I do run other security software, but I have found a collection that works well together.  What I use is:





    ERP (Anti executable

    Heimdal Pro


    No conflicts and they work well together.


    Oh and I am sticking with Win 7 for the foreseeable future.



  5. Those alerts are strange, as they are from a folder mozila\updated\firefox.exe  yet your last picture shows firefox in the correct location.    Open the GUI click on protection and under application rules, search for firefox.   If the rule is for the correct location, I'd make sure all allowed is for all3  columns    If it's for the updated folder, I'd delete it.


    Then check your machine and see if that folder exists.   I don't have one on my win 7 x64 pro system.   If it does I'd see if I can figure out why.


    One other thing totally unrelated.  I noticed in your folder listings you have c: local disk and d: local disk.  If you ever had to restore an image that could be a disaster.   I'd rename them so you have something like c: Primary   d: Secondary.     That way you can always identify the drives.



  6. Just so everyone knows what it is.  When you place Shadow Defender into Shadow Mode all disk operations are written to a separate area of the disk.   So when you exit shadow mode any and all changes made to the disk(file system) are dropped and the disk reverts to the state when you were shadowed.  It does have a a feature that allows you to save a file that you want to keep changes you have made.


    An example of use.  I was testing a bypass to another program by a piece of Ranswom ware.  To test I place my system into shadowmode letting it shadow all threee of my internal disks.  I then turned the ransomware loss and indeed there was a bypass, and it merrily encrypted data on all three disks.  Pretty bad.   But exiting shadow mode with a reboot and all the encrypted files were gone, and the system was fine.



    As a PS.   I had to disable EAM/EIS for this test as they shut the ransomware down.



  7. I would not use two anti-exploit products at the same time. If you are going to use HitmanPro.Alert, uninstall MBAE.



    Totally agree, and personally I feel HitmanPro Alert is the stronger of the two.  I use it with EAM/EIS and there are no conflicts.   Didn't even need any excludes.  The subject is however a bit misleading.  HMPA is more then AntiRansomware.


    From my testing with a few ransomware nasties EAM/EIS does a pretty good job itself.

  8. I used Emsisoft for a year now, and i noticed is that Emsisoft had more Bitdefender signature over Emsisoft signature.What i really want to see is balance signature between Bitdefender and Emsisoft, and i'm not saying this is bad that Bitdefender have more signature than Emsisoft, but i want to see the balance detection for both of them and not just Bitdefender signature over ran Emsisoft signature. Matter of fact, other people test Emsisoft products, i can tell that Bitdefender signature rather shows more detection than Emsisoft signature. 


    What difference does it make.   All that really matters is EIS/EAM does the advertised job, and it does!!!
