  1. Just to report, I do have the very same problems on one computer. It concerns Zemana Antilogger, which has been on my PC for quite some time (together with OA) without any issue whatsoever. Some 5 days ago, perhaps a bit longer, it started to rain pop-ups from OA asking me whether I wanted to allow Antilogger, which I did. I also put the status to Trusted. Then it works fine, but on reboot the pop-ups returned and the status has been changed to Blocked. Well, it does not matter all that much, since I will switch to Version 5 tomorrow and hopefully the problem will be over then.
  2. Update. The problem returned recently, but this time we managed to fix it without reinstalling. As it turned out, the file a2service.exe had disappeared from the main directory (c:\Program Files\ Emsisoft). Restoring the file from archive (or from elsewhere)solved the problem, with thanks to Emsisoft Support.
  3. Experienced the same error pop-up for the last couple of weeks. Tried to re-install over the installed version, but it did not work. A clean install seems to have fixed it.
  4. Sorry, for my delayed response. Yes, the site had been addressed quite a bit (days in a row in fact, which I wanted to block it. But: First of all, I regularly clear the browser cache and all cookies (though not the flash ones admittedly) as well as the temporary files. Secondly, I always add an URL in the website list of OA and set it to "blocked" if I don't want that site to be addressed anymore. This procedure never failed me in the past. Thirdly, I take care to block also the variant URL's, such as neopets.com, neopets.nl, www.neopets,com etc., as well as the url's I see the connecting being redirected too (using URL-snooper to track them). As said, this never failed me and I was greatly surprised that it did not work this time. Well, we can't be all perfect all of the time, isn't it? Thanks,
  5. Some days ago I had an unexpected experience, because OA failed to block the site www.neopets.com. I blocked it in the Firewall (and in addition also in the Hostfiles of Emsisoft 5.0), but I (or rather my teen-daughter) still could visit that pesky site when using Opera 10.63, my default browser. In Firefox it blocked allright. I then ran URL-snooper and listed the sites to which I was being redirected and entered those URLL as well (again both in Programs and in the hostfiles), but the site was still accessible as usual. I have used OA for one year and a half on several machines now, and this is totally new to me. It gave me kind of shock. Has anyone else had a similar experience? XPSP3, MSI Wind, 2G
