  1. Thank you! It's no problem. I'll get back on this if it happens again, but, as said, I guess it is just a one-off thing. Best regards.
  2. At boot I always get the below Windows notification " Check virus protection Windows Defender Antivirus and Emsisoft Anti-Malware are both turned off. Tap or click to see installed antivirus apps. " Normally I don't pay attention to it, as one or two minutes later both are turned on anyway. Today, however, they both remained turned off and even the Emsisoft 'Fix now' would not work. I needed to reboot my PC to get both running again. (Of course first with the above warning) Log file shows: Shutdown at 18:21 PC Boot at 06:12 Reboot at 09:44 (see below) Emsisoft Anti-Malware v2020.9.0.10390 Windows 10 x64 1909 (18363.836) Probably this is just a one-off thing, but I report it anyway.
  3. Thanks for the above. Probably a one-off glitch then. I logged into my account -> devices and the license showed 'Valid' for all devices listed there. The pop-up disappeared and did not show up anymore this morning.
  4. This morning, after booting, Emsisoft showed a "Change License" panel. Apparently the software changed into a kind of non-license mode(?) Checked Event Log - probably the below error caused the issue. Event Log Error Event ID 3033 Code Integrity determined that a process (\Device\HarddiskVolume4\Windows\System32\svchost.exe) attempted to load \Device\HarddiskVolume4\Program Files\Emsisoft Anti-Malware\a2hooks64.dll that did not meet the 12 signing level requirements. How come? Nothing wrong yesterday. Thanks.
  5. I am very sorry... confession : it was my mistake... If possible, delete this thread as it may lead to wrong conclusions. I have Chrome and Firefox. A few days back I removed Firefox and installed Opera and made that my default browser (splendid browser by the way) The add-on has been installed on all three of them. When the pop-up showed up, I simply closed it, after all, it was installed. I did not realize though there that Edge still was on the Emsisoft Browser Security 'to do'-list. I never use Edge... ahum. Again, sorry for the confusion.
  6. Nothing to worry about but still a bit peculiar: Emsisoft Browser Security every now and then pops up asking to be installed. But it is already installed. In fact when the pop-up showed up on earlier occasions, I installed it (again), even though it was already installed. Why is this? Does it have something to do with updates, or so? As said, just a minor thing though.
  7. Thank you very much. I just started out using Opera and it looks really fine. Somewhere on some Android forum I read about Opera, give it a try and it is soo much better than the ad loaded Chrome. So now I am giving it a try on Windows 10 within VM (first want to see how it works out) Anyway thanks for the above: obviously I wasn't aware that Chrome addons could be used. (got a small warning, but it ended up fine though)
  8. Please allow me to use this thread to ask whether you intend to make this add on available for other browsers as well, like Opera? Frankly, this browser doesn't get the attention it deserves, regretfully so.
  9. Kaspersky does have a problem... Not sure whether 'moving a number of "core processes" from Russia to Switzerland' will solve this. For the Dutch Government, it doesn't matter. UK government bans all Russian anti-virus software from Secret-rated systems Twitter bans Kaspersky Lab from advertising its solutions on the platform citing DHS ban for its alleged ties with the Russian intelligence. Dutch government to phase out use of Kaspersky anti-virus software
  10. Arthur, thanks. For your info - I went on by email - contacted David. (just for good order's sake, note that it is the GUI that is popping up at each update. Anyway, leave it to David - he is investing things)
  11. Ah, right, many thanks indeed! - Later, i.e. just now: "Software updates" was/is untagged, but the pop-up still shows up. Strange.
  12. I know... I know .. it is just a minor thing, however, at times it can be a bit irritating like when you are in the middle of some kind of action: the Emsisoft interface showing up after update. Q: Is there some setting to avoid this from happening?
  13. Okay, thanks! If this is a 'normal behavior' then it is fine. As said, it was recommended to uninstall a 2nd AV product (like MBAM) because of possible conflicts, which I did, but Windows own AV product side by side with a 3rd party AV product is a bit difficult to reconcile... :-) Seems 'disabling' thru gpedit.msc even isn't possible... :-) Anyway, thanks again. -
  14. GT500: thanks for the feedback. As for autohotkey : I dropped that - it doesn't work for some unknown reason, see my other post. As for Windows Defender: noted that it is not Emsisoft, but Windows itself that should disable Defender once another AV product is running. I didn't know that. That said, if things are correct than either EAM or Defender should be active, not both. It would then roughly be the same as with MBAM i.e. not recommended to have to engines active at the same time(?) I tried to turn off Windows Defender thru gpedit.msc but it looks that it is still running, along with EAM. Or maybe this is the correct configuration and I am misinterpreting things?
