  1. Arthur, thanks for the tip, which did the trick.
  2. Jeremy: The text reads "Internet Security" and "Firewall" is listed under Protection.
  3. I get updates every 3 hours and had one 2 hours ago. I thought that the switch to EAM was supposed to occur on October 1.
  4. Arthur, I don't see any conversion of my EIS to EAM today.
  5. My EIS icon still says "Emsisoft Internet Security" and Windows Firewall still seems to be OFF, despite an EIS update this morning. Wasn't there supposed to be some change in EIS and Windows Firewall today?
  6. Arthur: Emsisoft has omitted the most important information of all to EIS users: how do we turn on Windows Firewall; what settings to use; when do we do it?
  7. So far I haven't seen any information from Emsisoft on the mechanism for turning on Windows firewall in various versions of Windows and what settings to use and when to do it. This has been left out entirely.
  8. Won't we have to turn on Windows Firewall when the conversion takes place? How will we know when to do that?
  9. Kevin, was that an "all clear"? In any case, thanks for reviewing the logs. "Drive-by downloads may happen when visiting a website, viewing an e-mail message or by clicking on a deceptive pop-up window." In my case, the drive-by attempted install occurred when I clicked on the Emsisoft popup link with an online article about Double Pulsar. CMA
  10. Me: "I was reading the recent EIS notification re Double Pulsar malware and while reading it online with Chrome, there was an attempt at an exploit in the folder \Downloads\Emsi\ but fortunately EIS stopped the exploit." GT500: "The DoublePulsar exploit detection only detects if DoublePulsar is trying to install a payload, so it is possible that there is still a DoublePulsar infection present and it just hasn't tried installing another payload since the first time it was blocked. That being said, our DoublePulsar detection is fairly new and I'm not sure whether or not it is possible for something to trigger a DoublePulsar alert even if it isn't actually DoublePulsar (most Behavior Blocker alerts can be triggered by legitimate software). Just in case I recommend following these instructions for creating a new topic in our Help, my PC is infected! section, and one of our malware removal specialists will take a look at your logs." Thanks in advance for your help. Addition.txt FRST.txt scan_170704-201510.txt
  11. Behavior Blocker log has no entry after 6/30/17, perhaps because the exploit was stopped by EIS. BTW, I noticed at the time of the EIS notification of exploit blocked that at that instant, EIS was "installing", which I cancelled. I then rebooted and did a Custom Scan.

  13. Thanks, Arthur. I have no special knowledge on what is or is not a malicious site. But I--and many chess players--have been accessing the site for at least 4 years without issue. How do the two "malicious site" citations get into your database, e.g., what does it take to be listed as a malicious site and does Emsisoft show false positives?
  14. EIS is blocking as a malware site ABROK.EU but others are telling me that there is nothing wrong with the site. What is the basis for EIS "XYZ is a known malware site"?
