  1. The only distortion I am seeing in the screenshots is from the JPEG compression and the forum resizing the image.

    Try looking at the second image of the original post. The list should be full-size as the rest of OA window, instead it appears incomplete (it's not full-sized like the rest).

  2. Hello,


    I've not received any black or white list updates lately.


    a2trust.dat - latest update: 13/02/2013

    a2wl.dat - latest update: 16/02/2013


    Manually checking for updates results in "your OA in up to date" message.


    System Information:
    Win XP Pro SP3
    Avast! Free AV 7.0.1474.765
    Online Armor Free
    HostMan/HostsServer 3.2.73 (MVPS HOSTS + hpHosts "ad/tracking servers only")
    Norton ConnectSafe aka Norton DNS v2

  3. Just open the file with your browser by dragging the file into your browser window. At least for Chrome it works. No idea about Firefox.



    Current version of Firefox (18.0.2) doesn't feature a built-in PDF viewer. However, as far as I know, Firefox 19 will:

    Mi sfugge qualcosa, non capisco questo discorso della lingua italiana supportata o no...questo dove sto scrivendo e' un forum di supporto o no? :)


    Mi riferivo alla sezione del forum (di cui ho postato il link nel mio primo messaggio) in cui esperti autorizzati e certificati aiutano gli utenti nelle rimozione di malware. 

    Non essendo io autorizzato a dare assistenza alcuna nella rimozione di malware, non posso fornirti ulteriori istruzioni in merito. Dovrai attendere una risposta "ufficiale".

    Quello che potevo fare (ed ho fatto), era indirizzarti alla sezione dedicata del forum.


  5. Salve! ma devo installare la versione trial? io ho gia installato Emsisoft Anti-malware a pagamento per un anno..proprio con Emsisoft ho tentato di rimuovere il malware..solo che nn me lo permette come c'e' scritto sopra :)


    Emsisoft Anti-malware non rimuove i rootkit automaticamente, proprio perché essendo essi di difficile rimozione si rischierebbe di compromettere parti fondamentali del sistema - o peggio di danneggiare l'intero sistema  irrimediabilmente. Per questo motivo viene visualizzato il messaggio di cui sopra. Come ti spiegavo non sono certo che il forum di assistenza alla rimozione supporti la lingua italiana. Magari Orlando Pivi potrà confermartelo.


    Cordiali Saluti

  6. Salve,


    Qui puoi trovare la sezione del Forum dedicata all'assistenza per la rimozione del malware:


    Qui invece trovi le linee guida per la richiesta di assistenza nella rimozione del malware:


    Non sono certo se vi sia assistenza in linga italiana per quanto riguarda la rimozione del malware. Magari qualcuno del team Emsisoft potrà fornirti maggiori informazioni - io sono solo un utente del forum.

  7. Why not just checking "Autoconfigure trusted programs"?


    " Autoconfigure trusted programs (Advanced mode only) – Allows you to change whether Online Armor will automatically create rules to allow ports and protocols as programs use them. Disabling this option will cause Online Armor to pop-up any time a program uses a new port or protocol not covered by an existing rule. "


    In any case, you will be asked to allow trusted programs to access the Internet, it won't be automatically allowed (since you haven't checked "Automatically allow trusted programs to access the Internet").

    The benefit is that OA  wouldn't pop-up any time a trusted (and manually allowed by you) program uses a new port or protocol not covered by an existing rule. Also, you could keep creating rules for untrusted program manually.

  8. Blues is right, a certificate is not a guarantee of safety.


    However, I've been having the  "automatically trust programs signed with valid digital signatures" option enabled since when it was first introduced, mainly because I'd like to receive as less pop-ups as possible.

    For security reasons (as pointed by blues in his post), I've also set OA to automatically look for updates once a day, so I can have the whitelist/blacklist files up-to-date. 


    Options/Check for updates:

    I don't open it using the Firefox downloads window which would cause Flash to inherit the "Run Safer" setting.


    Thanks. Neither do I.

    I was just not completely sure Firefox set to RunSafer wouldn't corrupt the Flash installation/upgrade.





    Speaking of Run Safer, if you haven't already done so you should set plugin-container.exe to run so as well.


    Well, I've always considered that an unnecessary/redundant step when Firefox (the main process) is set to RunSafer. The reason being that the plugin-container process would inherit the 'Run Safer' setting in any case.


    Best regards

  10. Salve,


    Da ciò che ho letto in rete, il file legittimo "winint.exe" dovrebbe trovarsi in C:\Windows\system32\





    Non sono un esperto di malware e quindi non posso assisterti, ti suggerisco però di aspettare una risposta ufficiale da Emsisoft, oppure di postare il tuo problema nella sezione dedicata alla rimozione di malware (avendo prima cura di leggere le linee guida).


    La sezione dedicata del forum:

    Le linee guida:


    I currently have Avira (web guard not enabled) and Rapport installed . Any compatability issues with OA Free and these 2



    As for Trusteer Rapport:



    The Online Armor Web Shield may not work in combination with Sandboxie, Trusteer Rapport or PrevX SafeOnline

    Online Armor may not be able to apply restrictions to browsers that are running with or within any of the aforementioned applications.


    The aforementioned applications prevent Online Armor from installing certain hooks that are required in order to apply the Web Shield restrictions correctly.


    There are no known solutions or workarounds except dropping either the Online Armor Web Shield or the aforementioned application used.

  12. Hello,


    When upgrading the Adobe Flash Player Plugin for Firefox should I run Firefox without restrictions to avoid a corrupted installation or any other possible issues? I have Firefox set to RunSafer and I usually update Flash Player using the executables you can find here: (Adobe Flash Player Distribution).


    Until now, I always disable RunSafer before upgrading Flash (or, by the way,  before upgrading Firefox itself), but I'd like to know if it's an unecessary step.
