  1. I set updates to run automatically every hour. Until recently, I would see a pop-up window alerting me to the number of signatures that were downloaded. Within the past week, updates no longer run. My settings are still the same. When I click on "Update Now", it tells me that 1416 KB (25%) of 5621 KB downloaded. But there's no further progress. If I cancel and click on "Update Now" again, I receive the same message that tells me 25% downloaded. I've been receiving alerts that my Emsisoft Anti-Malware is out of date. What am I doing wrong so that my updates no longer work? Please help!!
  2. I changed the scan schedule to run Daily at 1:00am rather than on every day in the Week. This morning, the first thing I did was look in the Reports folder and found that the scan ran successfully. Case closed.
  3. On 18 June, the Smart Scan report contained, "Objects: Rootkits, Memory, Traces, C:\Windows\, C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files". Last night's (24 July), the Smart Scan report contains, "Objects: Rootkits, Memory, Traces, C:\Windows\, C:\Program Files\, C:\Program Files (x86)\". Sheep Expert's comments on 14 May were correct, "Perhaps if you are on 64bit operating system it is scanning C:\program Files (x86) for your 32bit programs, and C:\Program Files for your 64bit programs." It appears that a developer finally corrected the report content. Thanks for the help.
  4. All this week, 7/16 thru 7/20, when I've finished using my computer for the day, I leave it on and go to bed. On 7/16, I scheduled a scan (Smart Scan) to run on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at 1:00am while I am asleep. In the morning, the first thing I do is look in the Reports folder to ensure that the scan ran successfully. Unfortunately, the scheduled scan has not run even once this week. Until this anomaly is remedied, I'll run a scan manually to keep my computer safe from malware.
  5. I ran a scheduled scan early this morning (5/14). As usual anti-malware ran a "Smart Scan". When I looked at the report, among the objects scanned were "C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files". Why does Smart Scan scan the same folder twice. Puzzled.
  6. On October 7, 2011, as soon as I was notified that V6 was available, I followed the instructions to uninstall V5 and install V6. Under "Scan PC", I selected a Deep Scan. I scheduled it to run at 2:00AM on Friday and again on Monday mornings. Because V6 is touted as 450% faster than previous versions, I assumed that the reason for the fast time was due to replacing V5 with V6. This morning I checked the report files and found that Anti-Malware has been running "Smart Scan", not "Deep Scan". Other than doing a manual "Deep Scan", what must I do to schedule a "Deep Scan"??
  7. Thank you for your response. I changed my scan to Custom and I can now see that Heuristics has been turned on. Consider this query closed. Edited by H_D to remove large font size to ease readability.
  8. Can I turn on heuristics when I run a deep scan? Regardless of which scan I run, how can I turn on heuristics??
