  1. I'd give them a bit more credit than that!
  2. But WFC is not a firewall -totally unrelated to Online Armor and even EIS- and it'd make an excellent in-built companion to EAM which actually promotes the Windows Firewall. Anyway, I guess it's too late for that.

    Pale Moon a system process?

    I don't think it's currently digitally signed: No more code-signing options
  4. One issue left: since the forum still uses browser user-agent sniffing, it fails with Pale Moon. There's an old issue with some websites: when they see the word 'Goanna' they believe they are dealing with a 'Goa' mobile device instead of a desktop browser and fail in various ways. In this forum, post replies cannot be added so it becomes unusable. The forum works fine when using these user-agent strings for example: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:52.9) Gecko/20100101 PaleMoon/27.6.2 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:52.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.9 PaleMoon/27.6.2 The forum does not work properly with any of these native Pale Moon strings: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:3.4) Goanna/20171124 PaleMoon/27.6.2 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:3.4) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/20171124 PaleMoon/27.6.2 Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:52.9) Gecko/20100101 Goanna/3.4 Firefox/52.9 PaleMoon/27.6.2 It'd be nice if you could forward this to the forum software guys, so that we won't have to use such overrides. Thanks.

    CLOSED App lock issue/question

    I've enabled that option and it seems to lock apps more consistently now, but I'll need to test a bit more.

    CLOSED App lock issue/question

    Same device and Android version. No other security app (All-In-One-Toolbox is installed), EMS 3.2.1 with admin access. I also see a notification access option with only EMS as an option (disabled). Should that be enabled? I don't have any apps that apply power-saving except for what Android itself does.

    CLOSED App lock issue/question

    I now use the 'Unlock until screen off' option but Apps are not locked consistently. I often open Gmail for example after turning on the device and it opens nornally, no pin asked. I'd say 4 out of 10 times, the lock doesn't work as expected.

    CCleaner hack

    Open regedit and check your registry: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Piriform\Agomo If the Agomo entry is there then you are probably infected (your PC, that is). Just delete the Agomo key and install the latest CCleaner which will overwrite the infected .exe. A full PC scan can't hurt either. If Agomo is not there, you should be fine. https://www.ghacks.net/2017/09/18/ccleaner-compromised-better-check-your-pc/
  9. I think you misunderstood me, hjlbx. I'm talking about a simple monitor of the WF status, as reported by Windows (an additional check wouldn't hurt either, if feasible). If you disable the WF yourself the usual, standard Control Panel way (why mess with cmd/PowerShell?) there will be no reaction from EAM. It will still say "Your computer is protected" - all green status.
  10. Since there's a tighter relation now between EAM and the Windows Firewall (and internet security in general), perhaps EAM should warn when the WF is off? Unless I'm mistaken there's no warning from EAM if the WF is turned off. So, it seems odd to only warn when a program wants to add WF rules, but not when the WF is completely disabled.
  11. I doubt you will have to manually enable it yourself. It will be automatically enabled. If for some wild reason it will be disabled, Windows and EAM will tell you to enable it but I'm sure it will be done automatically. When a 3rd-party Firewall is uninstalled, the Windows Firewall kicks in automatically.

    Firewall discussion

    No, it disables various privacy-related settings (Microsoft's own) but it does not add Firewall rules or block specific connections. You'll have to check more advanced tools for that, like W10Privacy, WindowsSpyBlocker and WPD. They are all excellent, but make sure you know what you are doing before using/applying them.
  13. It's not really a merge though, is it? EAW: improved, but without getting any of EIS's extra features, so a massive downgrade in Firewall control, not a merge EIS: discontinued EAW users should be happy, EIS users are essentially being told to either use other software (because "there weren't many of them EIS users anyway") or trust Microsoft's Windows Firewall and its feeble interface. The actual merge is between EAW and Microsoft Windows Firewall, not EAM and EIS.
  14. When a program changes (via an update) and the warning alert comes up ("This program has been changed, Update/Remove rule"), a "Do not show again for this program" tick-box would be quite handy, especially for programs that auto-update often. It'd be a quick shortcut to using Protection/Application Rules/specific rule/"Don't alert when this file changes".
