  1. Hi Arthur, Apologies for the delay - have been away. Ran Disk error checking - nada. Then disconnected from Internet, closed On-Line Armor firewall down, reran the deep scan and it ran thru with no problems. ???? Regards George_S
  2. Hi Arthur, somehow this topic got hijacked! I ran the deep scan just now - system froze, I managed to close it down via on-off button on the docking station here at work. rebooted in safe mode with networking and copied the ScanEngineDebug Log to a temp folder. I had been monitoring the scan info on the screen as it ran; 1 of 4 = Rootkits 2 of 4 = Memory 3 of 4 = Traces 4 of 4 = Files Hung op apparently at C:\Documents and Settings\...\Apple Computer\iTunes|PodDevices.xml - this is a little 1k file George_S
  3. Hi Arthur, I know all about the power button reset - when EAM 7 deep scan causes the 'freeze' you can hold that button down for as long as you like See my original msg (copied in below) (Had to do a hard reset - held on/off button down for over 60 secs - would not switch off. Had to remove battery to close PC down). I will try the safe mode with networking over the weekend and see if I can retain the log file. George_S
  4. I have run the deep scan twice. Each time a ScanEngineDebug.log was created and records being written to it during the scan. When the pc froze, a safe shut-down was impossible and I had to do a hard reset. On rebooting, the file was automatically replaced with a new blank file. I could not find any sign of the earlier files (same name?). On the last run, the file the deep scan reported it was busy with was C:\Documents and Settings|Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat This was at 83% and pass 4/4
  5. Hi Arthur, Once the computer freezes, I loose all ability to shut down from keyboard. Last night I had to disconnect the battery again - will this affect the saving of the ScanEngineDebug.log? Regards George_S

  7. Tx Arthur, I followed instructions but have been unable to replicate the issue???? Only thing I found tho is that on the DebugView Capture menu, if I selected "Capture Kernel" the program hung and I eventually had to to a hard reset to get out of it. I got it capturing without the kernel capture, started a "DEEP" scan and then started up Outlook. All well. Re-enabled the EMISOFT ANTI-MALWARE in Outlook and still no problem. How do I remove the modification in the registry created by the batch file? Thank you for your help George_S
  8. Hi, I am a recent convert to the malware software (have used the firewall for several years. I allowed it to upgrade to the Beta v7 recently and have encountered the following problem if opening Outlook Professional 2003 under the following circumstance. This is running on a DELL Latitude D810 and running XP sp 3 (upto date with microsoft patches) When attempting to open Outlook while a deep scan (or custom) scan is running, Outlook appear to hang and has to be closed down to exit. The following message then appears "Outlook experienced a serious error the last time the add-in 'emisoft anti-malware was opened'. Would you like to disable this add-in? To reactivate this add-in, click About Microsoft Outlook on the Help menu, then click disabled items.' EmiSoft Anti-Malware version 7.0.0. On-Line Armor Firewall (Free) version 5.11.395 - SHould this still be the Free version despite my having purchased the suite?

  9. Once more catprincess to the rescue! Tx that did the trick - BUT what could have caused this?
  10. DELL Lattitude D810 2GB RAM WIN XP SP3 up do date OA FREE V5.0.0.1097 Avira Antivir Premium latest up to date. I started Garmin's BASEMAP program - clicked on download updates. Avira asked me to allow internet access for the BASEMAP - Explorer.exe which I did. I then maximized the OA icon for OA Status. Funny things happened:- 1 - the Display of active connections remains blank The ADSL modem shows activity. 2 - I cannot close this screen. What do I do - short of hardbooting? George_S
  11. Hi Andrew, I will add the OA to Avira and the Avira to OA. I have not yet had time to do the full re-install, but I think there may be a simpler answer to the problem. How to fix it is another thing! When I reported the problem I got those error messages as described. I later rebooted and left OA alone. OA update started reporting a timeout problem with the automatic updates. The timeout msg came up every few minutes and I ignored it as had to work on the PC. At that stage I was connected via our company IP network. I came home this evening and connected to my home ADSL line and viola the automatic update happened perfectly. I triggered a mnaual update and it also ran happily. The difference is that the business network uses a proxy server whilst the home ADSL links to an external ISP and does not. How do I configure OA to use the proxy server if connected at work and not to if connected at home? Thank you for your assistance so far George
  12. Hi I just upgraded to OA Free V 5.0.0.1097 from the previous version. Install went OK but when the update runs it reports the following: Automatic Updaten Access violation at address 5B041DF0 Module 'OAui.exe' Read of address = 00000140 OA appears to hang and system becomes unusable After a reboot, the same problem occurred this time with an address of 5B1C4958 AGAIN HUNG, AGAIN HAD TO REBOOT. i HAVE FOR NOW DEACTIVATED OA! Machine: DELL Lattitude D810 with OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3 Processor x86 Family 6 Model 13 Stepping 8 GenuineIntel ~2128 Mhz Total Physical Memory 2,048.00 Antivirus: AVIRA Premium Version 10 I tried adding oaui.exe to the antivirus scanner's excetption list. - has not helped Help please!
  13. Hi I have several times noticed this program running on the firewall status screen deploy.akamaitechnologies.com Is this harmful or can I let well alone. This is a Dell Lattitude D810 running Win XP Sp3. Avira Premium antivirus OA Free 4.5.1.431 Free I see that I have several web sites related to akamai as trusted sites. a26.ms.akamai.net e935.g.akamaiedge.net Should I have these as trusted web sites or is this there in error? Hope you can assist George_S
