  1. To round things up on my end: my problems gone away with the 6465 build. I'm running it for two days now and everything seems to be in order. If I'll stumble upon any more bugs of this nature I'll let you now. m0unds, thanks for the test case and I hope you problem will be solved too.
  2. Yes, indeed I have, but is should only run for a couple of minutes before my screen turns off. It still does not explain why EIS wouldn't update itself after I start using my PC. Yesterday I had to trigger manual update in order for AU to start working normally. If there is anything I can do to help solve this please feel free to ask!
  3. Hi, I run EIS in beta channel and I'm currently using EIS 11.8.0.6451. Since latest update (one buffing up Automatic Game mode) I experience problems with EIS not triggering updates when it should (although I do not know if AGM is culprit here). Usual situation involves my leaving my PC on, but unattended for longer periods of time. Since I run in High Performance Power Option mode and don't use systems sleep function, Emsisoft IS would normally update itself while I'm away and screen is off. That is not what is happening recently though, just now I come back to my PC and it didn't update itself for past eight hours. On the other hand, if I would to run manual update, then automatic ones should trigger normally from now on (I had similar situation yesterday, and that's whats happened). I run diagnostic batch file if anyone would be interested
  4. That's very good news, thanks Emsisoft team!
  5. 1. When receiving messages from WSC does EAM status window shows that shields are off?: 2. Also, when you receive a message from Windows 7 Security Center does EAM shield icon in system tray changes to indicate that program is off (red dot in lower left corner?): It could be just a problem with communication between security center and EAM, not EAM shutting itself off but we need more information
  6. User stated in one of his post that he plays online games. Since ping times are important there I suggested lowering download speeds when using a game mode as an alternative to not downloading updates at all. It could possibly solve some issues, although I'm sure not all of them I'm just pointing out where potential problems may be, and I'm suggesting alternative. I've never stated that this would not work at all. Avoiding potential problems before they happen seems like reasonable step.
  7. Maybe besides CPU, I/O usage is the problem? A slow disk for example? Other applications? Maybe just limit speed (to 10~50 kB/s) at which updates are downloaded? Delaying update for full-screen applications might be dangerous if some bug with detecting those would appear. Someone watching full-screen TV may not receive updates for hours if something like that happens. When only small part of available speed is used, then other on-going communication shouldn't be hindered so much. In theory.
  8. While waiting for Emsisoft representative: 1. Can you tell us if OA history log shows anything when you try to launch applications ? Kernel events, Program Guards notifications etc. 2. You could enable debug mode in Online Armor (Options → General → Enable debug mode). Restart your PC and then run some programs refusing to start. Those logs might help to determine what is going on. Remember to disable debug mode after that. Logs you created are stored in Online Armor installation directory in /Logs folder. Someone from Emsisoft could ask you for those later on. From what you describe here it looks like for some reason OA have trouble getting a response from user (i.e. it didn't show any pop-ups; some error in communication between OA components exists etc.) and is blocking any application from starting by default, except for those essential for computer operation/whitelisted.
  9. It's hard to say. Avast has some kind of proxy tied to one of it's shields and internet communication is done through loopback, so it is possible that if that particular shield was enabled at time when svchost.exe tried to use internet, OA auto-trusted it with set of those port ranges - but it's just a theory. IIRC problems with time synchronization existed for some time now, even back when I used Windows XP.
  10. Thanks, I thought about this (creating a bug report) but decided that I would rather get some more information first because it is possible that I just missed or misunderstood something
  11. Hi, Online Armor allows setting a limit on how much CPU is to be dedicated to given program and also allows setting a CPU affinity. I'm currently running Windows 7 32bit, a system that is suppose to support this future. I tried limiting CPU power to 10% for conversion program Handbrake (handbrake.exe and handbrakeCLI.exe) to see if this works, but I saw no change in how much CPU was used. I also tried to set affinity to CPU1 for Windows Calculator, with no result. I then used program called RunFirst to do the same and it worked. This raises the question: Are those future working correctly or there is something else I'm missing?
  12. I just tried using my ISP proxy to perform update and it works without any problems. Are you sure that proxy server you choose is active, allows such downloads or dosn't require authentication with login/password ? If I understand picture you attached correctly, then this program is used to create a proxy for EAM updates (ie. turn computer to proxy between LAN and internet). I think it doesn't need to be used if you only want to update your PC through some proxy of your choice. HTH
  13. Try adding port 123 to UDP out of svchost.exe rule. It's in Firewall → Rules → Ports section of Online Armor. You also might want to try unchecking port 123 in Restricted Ports if previous tip doesn't work. I recently done a clean install of OA, and it looks like port 123 is added to svchost.exe UDP IN, not UDP OUT. It might be the cause of problems. Someone with more knowledge of subject should speak on this to confirm this Also, Thanks for time.is - nice find
  14. With introduction of new webpage and version 6, I couldn't find any links from which I could download OA directly from your website. All download links lead to CNET's download.com. Same domain that was present in one of your knowledge base articles some time ago describing download-wrappers problem: Secure download resources or a malware cesspool - How trustworthy are download portals nowadays? I'm not saying OA downloaded from there is get by using wrapper, but I do say that for security software I would like to have guarantee that I download latest, working and verified version. I put more trust in vendor site then in download portal about that. It is possible that you had some server problems or maybe you just want to increase a download count on that site. Cool, but please consider adding a direct link to OA setup. Serve download portal links from main Emsisoft OA site: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/oa/ but keep direct links in Emsisoft download section: http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/download/ This way you would still be able to serve download-portal links and at the same time have simple and logical address for downloading software from your site directly when you want to make sure that someone gets latest & greatest version (e.g. help in forums, support via email).
  15. Hi, I'm using latest version of EAM. Both my system and EAM are using English as language, although my regional settings are set in Windows to Polish (Poland). When I use HiJackFree, it's using Polish as language and I can't find a setting there to change language to English. Could someone please tell me if it is possible to change language of HiJackFree and if yes then how? Thanks in advance, Barthez
