  1. access violation

    I can't say because I have some settings turned. One of the team should show up. I just said that as a starting point.
  2. access violation

    Do did not include enough information. Was it running ok before ? I would download a new installation file and install over the old installation as a starting point.
  3. For me, just a pain the get to scan logs to make sure they are working on time and other information. This company looks like they have nothing better to do than "improve" how we do things or how your way is better. This is the reason why users dump products. From my working days, I never believed that the "customer is always right". Took time to work with them because they were not right. Customers that care usually comment on bad choices or you lose a them. Security programs are always changing & the customer is always looking for something 'better' or easier to use. Superantispyware turned into a cookie finder and I can't find my Norton loopback plugs anymore & Malwarebytes is still biting some customers, which is normal considering the junk out there. In other words, don't change a program because you think it is a better way to do something. It is UNDER THE HOOD THAT COUNTS.
  4. Scan Hung Again

    This from puter #3 scan hung up. FRST run while happening. First time with a desktop. Other 2x were with laptops. Laptops have Malwarebytes, desktops have Zemana as secondary security. Usually happens on first boot of day and not all the time (of course !!) Security has cross exclusion of folders. FRST) Addition.txt.txt
  5. Scan Hung Again

    Does the program do a startup scan or is it because of a scheduled scan that was missed ? I am trying to have less things happen at boot.
  6. Scan Hung Again

    It happened on 3 different puters weeks apart and always on first boot of day, never with any other boot. Always stuck on a driver in \system32 that is why I got log file posted. All use a ssd. Since Anti-malware does a scan on boot, gets updates on boot along with other programs, it is a timing problem. I have changed scan schedules for now.
  7. Scan Hung Again

    The usual hang is with a driver in \Windows\System32 did not note which driver was involved this time since every hang was a different driver. I am going to change scan settings in case one is scanning while another is updating. A drive would not cause this type of problem. This must be some sort of conflict which I will try to find. 3 different puters with different security programs and the only single program in common is Emisisoft anti-malware. I will find the problem on my own.
  8. Windows Defender not Disabled (cont'd)

    Watch 'run as administrator' setting. It should not be used with Win 10 in any auto start locations. gpedit is not available in the Home version What is with the D: drive bit ?
  9. Scan Hung Again

    I need someone who can read those files. Been around long enough to know what is happening.
  10. Scan Hung Again

    The type of disks have nothing to do with this type of problem
  11. Firewall Information

    Looking for one with information I can understand/control easier. Testing on a HP laptop with a I5-7200u cpu with 16 gig ram. Started with Windows Firewall Control, then Comodo FW Free now Zonalarm Free. Using Comodo, this laptop really slowed down and I though it might be because of the updates for the chip problem installed while using it. Now with ZA the laptop is back to running as fast as with WFC. Conclusion, WFC and ZA ok, Comodo big NO.
  12. Firewall Information

    ZoneAlarm seems to be working ok so I will stick with it. Tnx for replies
  13. Firewall Information

    I was a little upset with the Comodo slowdown. My desktops still have WFC running. I use my laptops every day so that was the reason to change to something else with more control. Something I could understand better !!
  14. At my age all these changes are making me feel old. Logging, Windows Firewall, general security ,Windows 10 and all the site password changes. This is just another one to adjust to. At least my brain can still adjust for now. Figured logging out. Just check the important ones you want to watch.
  15. Using Windows FW and Windows FW Control. Looked at rules today and many ICS settings show on and active. Like UPnP in /out SSDP-In/Out. No Remote Addresses are shown. Just found Remote Assistance turned on Remote Access OFF which I always set. Wonder if anyone has seen this before. I have all sharing turned off unless there is a setting I don't know about. Really weird !
  16. Using Windows Firewall Control. That is possible but, using on four machines and this has only showed up on one so far. Years ago I would have gone a different route with an OS. Apple was too expensive and Linux didn't have the programs I used and the ones they had did not come up to the quality of Windows programs. Forget OS/2 for anything !! I am beginning to thick this may be a one time thing and really nothing to worry about.
  17. Have to check my desktops. So far only on the one laptop did I see those rules. All my settings are as I have them, no sharing. The very few times I share a file, I just put them on a flash stick. One computer is hardwired to the router and the other three are wireless. I keep the wireless locked down as much as possible. There are at least 40 wireless networks that I can see around here. Have to watch because Microsoft Windows 10 can be 'updated' to anything.
  18. Strange that it took months to show up, unless it does that more than once and I did not see it before. In any event, Happy New Year
  19. Deleting old signature files

    Only around 500 megabytes, how many gigabytes is your drive !
  20. About EAM detection

    I never even researched 'mining' until this post. A quick search & read just does not make me want to do anymore reading about the subject. Sort of confusing and as long as it does not hurt me, I don't care.
  21. About EAM detection

    Doing a web search for BitCoinMiner will get you all sorts of hits about what it is. Microsoft even has one in their store. Bit Coins are virtual money on the web.
  22. I have been running both with exclusions in both. You paid for the so use them. This is what I do and don't care what anyone else says ! No program will catch everything. That is why a layered approach is best.
  23. I run them together without any problems. I just use exclude settings in both.
  24. Scheduled Scan Hangs

    Second time this has happened. Malware scan. \Windows\System32\Drivers wudfrd.sys Sunday wof.sys Today Only way to get out of the scan is to reboot, stop and pause doesn't seem to work. Only on this HP laptop to make this more strange. Ideas ? Thanks I switch between two laptops and the DEll doesn't have this happen.
  25. Scheduled Scan Hangs

    Did not hang today. Must be a Windows happening !
