  1. Click setting and on the general page, untick self protection
  2. The only option is to delay reboot. I updated my desktop install from 10074 to 10130. There are 3 processes. 1) Download, 2 "Preparing for install" and 3) Rebooting when the actual install takes place The only control you have is delaying the reboot, none over the first 2. So you work away with these going on in the background.. I had 1 BSOD on the download and during the "preparing" phase I had 2 BSOD's. The install appeared okay, but so much didn't work, I don't know. Well done Microsoft. Hey Fabian. Think you guys could write an operating system?
  3. It is KB3035583, and yes it went away. After today, there will be no Win 10 in my future until they make one significant change. That is they allow you to set windows updates as they are now. In the current 10 there is no turning it off, and I had an update in the middle of work. That is unacceptable.
  4. Yes, indeed, and uninstalled that KB quick as a wink
  5. The free version doesn't have network control, but I have tried it and EIS and Glasswire worked together for me. I haven't left installed at this time.
  6. Candidly I don't see the point of wasting the time on this test. Scanning my system I've never found anything, EIS always stop malware i've tested agains, Fabian system it's a bad idea and I agree, and he has state there won't be a change. That makes this one big waste of time.
  7. Hardik587 You are indeed becoming most wearisome. There is an old expression among diehard Texans. "No matter how much you kick a dead horse it won't get up" This is exactly what you are doing.
  8. Hi Acadia You can easily use the same license. I know you have two win 7 machines, so install the hotfix on both of them. Pete
  9. Hardik587. Give it up, You aren't going to change their mind. And frankly I agree with them
  10. I don't believe EIS has specific exploit protection like say HitmanPro Alert, HOWEVER, whenever I run real malware against my setup which includes EIS,Appguard, and HitmanPro Alert, I always have to shut down EIS first, because it always stops the malware before it reaches the others. So my final word on this is - relax you are safe. Pete
  11. Hi all I've seen the same thing since updating my VM to 10074. The EIS updating seemed to work randomly at first. I uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times and it seems to be working. Going to update an make an image on my desktop of Win 10. BUT.... I don't think Win 10 is yet stable enough to use as a main OS. Even Microsoft states that. Pete
  12. Have you tried it. I have EIS working int a Win 10 VM
  13. What I miss the most is the systray activity indicator. Not sure if Glasswire does that. May test
  14. It is safe. I have it on all my computers. As an aside you should do backup imaging. That way if any update causes problems you can simply undo them.
  15. Note where it says Firewall State, and that is set to off. So yes the Windows firewall is off.
  16. Anytime you use a third party firewall, in this case EIS, windows firewall should be off. Pete
  17. ROFL. Good one Digmor. But actually I don't do that. One thing that is a biggie for me is I have to trust the vendor, and I also wouldn't trust McAfee. Also I consider that I have client financial info on my machines, so I try to leave nothing to chance. What I run along side EIS is: Appguard. It makes no attempt to classify software as good or bad, but just blocks or allows things based on policy. It is very effective NVT ERP. Classic anti executible with some excellent twists for both useablity and protection Sandboxie. Simply wouldn't browse without it. ShadowDefender. When I need to test something nasty and on my desktop, I shadow all 3 drives. Hitman PRo Alert. Mitigation protection, but also features that are unique Couple of points. 1) amazingly all this works together without any drag on the computer. 2) I don't rely on scanning as much as does the software stop real maleware 3) If one of the programs requires a decision, am I still protected if I make a mistake. Oh one last thing. The real key to protection is backup backup backup especially since I do a lot of beta testing. Pete
  18. I've looked and I don't see any evidence of a memory leak here.
  19. Hi Hawki On my main desktops I'am behind a router and my networks are set to private. On my laptop when I connect to my Verizon Broadband, the network is a Public Network. Hope that helps. Pete PS. When I go to GRC with the Broadband setup, I am completely stealthed.
  20. Yep the only way to know is to try, BUT, back up backup backup first, so you can get yourself out of trouble easily. If you have any questions about that ask. Pete
  21. I am not sure I understand. I remember testing when I first started with EIS, and I just tested again with Build 5129 Full stealth test at GRC.com There is no router involved. The connection is to a Verizon Broadband connection, so it doesn't go thru the router. Pete
  22. Hi Lode I don't know if you know it, but I had OA firewall on my computer when it was just proto type code. I was with OA until it came to Emsisoft. I fought the transition tooth and nail, and hated loosing my traffic LED. But then I tried EIS to consider testing it. Now I would never turn back if I could. You might one or two little things missing in EIS, but I can tell you without doubt, EIS is a much better product in terns of the level of protection. It really is the best. Pete
  23. Remember also, the behavior blocker doesn't need signatures
