  1. Done all that, so hopefully it won't happen again. it's just a pity that reverting to the free version didn't happen automatically.
  2. I deciced that I would not renew my previous OAP licence having not remembered to check when it expired, also not getting a reminder to renew, to so reverted to the free version. I took the 30 day free trial of OAP, which incidentally did not have a functioning Banking Mode but what the hell because it's not what it used to be.. At the end of the 30 days, I was inveted to try the30 day free trial again. I closed down the window and carried on my merry way round the internet. It wasn't until next day that I noticed that OA free hadn't loaded on boot up. So launched it manually. Since then, I keep getting an invitation to try the 30 free trial of OAP. No matter whether I close the window, or ckick on "Next" to be told the trial has expired, the OA free closes down on its own. I then have to launch it manually. What the hell is going on???????
  3. I used to have OAP for about 5 years (I think). Then because a) I didn't keep an eye on when it expired and b) there was no warning from the program that expiry was getting close It defaulted to the free version. Then yesterday when I booted up the old machine the free OA didn't load. So loaded it from the "All programs" list. As I kept getting the 30 day free trial prompt, I deleted OA, rebooted twice, then went to the Emsisoft web site to reload the free version. Couldn't find a download link, anywhere, then by chance happened to notice at the end of the page that OA defaults to the 30 day free trial anyway. That could have been put somewhere more obvious to limit the amount of time wasted looking for the free version download link. Ok, so loaded it. Today I wanted to go to my bank site, and activated BM. First attempt the bank site wouldn't load. Second attempt, bank site loaded but the account log in screen wouldn't load. Third attempt - turn off BM, and it all worked as it should. So what the ......... is going on with OA. Not that I care much because I am actively looking for an alternative to go to before the end of the 30 days as OA is not a patch on the TALL EMU version of manyt years ago. The thread about "Domains in v7" totally destroyed my faith in the security of BM (trusts all sites listed in Favourites - what a farce)
  4. Will OAP protect us XP users against the flaw in IE that has recently been announced by Microsoft? And that the patch won't be released for XP.
  5. Thanks for the reply GT. Updates have gone through OK today. Will you still need me to do the stuff in your post, as in - wil the info you are looking for still be available?
  6. An ignorance induced panic posting. If it should be in the "Help my pc is infected" please move it there. Quick scans with Avast Free AV, Malware Bytes and Spybot S&D showed no immediate threats found. I should have done them before posting. Sorry
  7. I got an update fail window open for the auto update, so tried a manual update. This came up, and I don't know who/what the "peer" mentioned is/means. All and any help will be appreciated. No connection changes have been made - to the best of my knowledge.
  8. Oh dear, are we going down this road again http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/12565-domains-in-v7/?hl=domains
  9. From my very limited experience with video handling, they need to be able to log keystrokes so they can back track to previous places if needed.
  10. After Rob's reply, I took the bull by the horns and installed CC anyway despite loads of OAP warnings that it was a dangerous program. Things seem to be working OK though. The format of this post has gone haywire for some reason!
  11. Thank you Rob. The program is blocked in History, but not in the Programs list. Do I need to do anything with the history entry?
  12. In attempting to update to this new version of CCleaner, OAP pop up claimed it is a dangerous program. Is it really so, or is this a false positive?
  13. They have already announced that it will be supported until at least 2016
