  2. Adding this screenshot from ProcessExplorer. "The system cannot find the file specified" in order to submit to Virus Total, and the Virus Total button is greyed out.
  3. Hello, I'm afraid I have something bad going on here, but I'm not sure, so I thought I'd post here before going to the malware forum (especially since the machine may not even be worth cleaning, as I will describe below). Emsisoft Anti-Malware scan doesn't show anything, but I have been concerned about a possible kernel-based malware and dll injection/api exploits? I can't run or even install Malwarebytes. I just installed Private Firewall, and this log shows some activity that looks strange to me, including a2service starting a remote thread. This is a home computer on wifi but n
  4. I'm not an expert on knowing where to look. However, in the Windows Logs, under "System," there is an entry at 6:06pm saying, "The Emsisoft Protection Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds: Restart the service." Two seconds later, there is an entry saying that the same service is running. (I did not see anything restart before the reboot, though--the dashboard window never reappeared, and I may not have been watching CPU closely then.) Also under "System" at 6:09:28 PM, there is a
  5. I just updated to the new stable updates this afternoon. A few hours later, I realized while working on the computer that the Emsisoft dashboard window was completely gone, including its taskbar icon, and I couldn't make it reappear even by trying to restart the program. I realized that the Emsisoft programs were still visible in Process Explorer, but there was no CPU associated with them. I was upset, as I had just been on my banking website. I cut my internet connection and shut down all Emsisoft programs from Process Explorer, except for a2start, which I was told I did not have permission
  6. Thanks, Azure Phoenix. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the invalid hash warnings? It is concerning when you receive messages that your antimalware program may have been corrupted or undergone unauthorized modification.

  8. Getting intermittent warnings in the Windows 7 security log. I run Windows 7 SP1 64bit on a Sony Vaio laptop. Code Integrity has determined that the page hashes of an image file are not valid. The file could be improperly signed without page hashes or corrupt due to unauthorized modification. The invalid hashes could indicate a potential disk device error. File Name: Device\HarddiskVolume3\Program Files\Emsisoft Internet Security\a2hooks64.dll I used to have Emsisoft Internet Security, but it changed itself to Emsisoft AntiMalware. Can anyone help me understand what is go
  9. A belated thank you for your response. I'm really glad this community is here.
  10. Thanks for answering. It says it was for Thunderbird.exe. That makes sense about the restart. Thank you.
  11. See edit to original message: ON EDIT: My computer mysteriously restarted itself, and the problem was gone when I came back. Very strange. I guess I am okay, unless this sounds suspicious and like I have got malware. Thanks very much for being here.
  12. ON EDIT: My computer mysteriously restarted itself, and the problem was gone when I came back. Very strange. I guess I am okay, unless this sounds suspicious and like I have got malware. Thanks. I got an alert from EIS that a program was trying to install silently in the background, so I quarantined it. It was actually Thunderbird trying to update itself. I realized as I was quarantining that it was a Thunderbird update, but I quarantined anyway, because I figured it was only an update, and given the suggestion of sneakiness in the alert, I thought I would research to make
  13. Thanks for the response. I did upload it to VirusTotal, and everything was clean. I am just bewildered as to why the alerts have suddenly started now, after no alerts at all even though I have been using the program in the very same way for a while. What is happening to start them now, as opposed to when I started using the program? I appreciate your input. Thanks.
