  1. CCleaner hack

    Must be magic, I guess. It did kill it. I don't care what anyone else says. Same way all responses about a Level 3 router problem said 'no way' and it was.
  2. CCleaner hack

    Antimalware caught the file on one of my computers. So if you got a popup about, then it is gone. You can then download 5.34 and be ok.
  3. Firewall discussion

    Someone trying to get into my wireless 'game' !
  4. Firewall discussion

    I switched from EIS to EAM on three machines. There are over 270 apartments in this complex + a few other homes and businesses around the area. I lost count of the amount of wireless networks using Inssider on 2.4 gigs and 5 gigs may have a problem with this Comcast equipment. Sort of concerned about some wise ass playing games. Don't know if a firewall will even help in this situation..
  5. On Windows 10, typing firewall then go to Advanced Settings brings up the Windows firewall where you can look through the rules. Can I go back 20 years so I can understand what I am seeing ? This is one reason I like a separate firewall, it takes most of the guess work out of the junk I see. For instance, I have Cortana disabled with gpedit.msc ( run 10 pro) and in Outbound Rules there it is. Haven't figured out if any information was sent to MS or if I can even disable that rule. I can't say if another firewall would have been able to block it so I will never know. Most of the outbound rules are MS related. A couple years ago I did try one of the programs that was used to modify the firewall. YUK !
  6. Comes down to , I do not trust Microsoft with any kind of security.
  7. Network Setup

    Trying to get a private network setup wired desktop and one or more laptops on wireless. Prefer to use a work group which I set up in System > Control Panel. Still much to set up,but do I have to set up a firewall allow rule. I think allow port 443 in/out. Just got my own Comcast network and been 4-5 years since last set up.,,,Forgot stuff. Tnx
  8. Firewall discussion

    Seems like every company is trying to improve their product some how. I think they know what they are doing. Almost everyone is behind a router today. If some of them have real logging, users would know all the junk being blocked. My problem is, are the combo boxes as effective as a separate router. Sorry, I lost a lot of trust with Microsoft utilities. I just got a laptop that came with McAfee for a year. Talk about no settings. Only day two so have to research.
  9. Many users are using a router today which is a great help. I used to tell everyone that I knew to get a router. Guess we have to wait and see how things work out. I have EIS on three computers and McAfee on a new Dell. Don't feel like I have much control with McAfee. Time will tell !
  10. Optimize EIS for lower end systems?

    That cpu has "hyperthreading" so it acts as 4 threads. IE.. my desktops have a 4 core cpu with hyperthreading. Running SETI, it shows 8 threads. I think I have that correct !!!
  11. On my desktops, get scan report opened after scan. I only have "report" checked in the scan settings. Just started to happen Version 2017.6.0.7681
  12. Report opens after scheduled scan

    In my RSS reader, Thanks
  13. Optimize EIS for lower end systems?

    Default. Some minor scan settings. Lower end in comparison to my 3.5 gig laptops ! When it died, I got an HP 650 pro with an ssd as my desktops have. I may have tried to replace the keyboard if I could get the thing open. I like new toys !!!
  14. Optimize EIS for lower end systems?

    Before it died, I was using this program on the same laptop. I did not have any problems with speed that I could tell.
  15. Report opens after scheduled scan

    Thanks for the explanation. Will wait for an update.
  16. Report opens after scheduled scan

    Good, I am not nuts ! Will have to wait for comments from the gurus
  17. Reinstall the program to get the missing file back and start over.
  18. Tracker Software

    If you don't use PDF Exchange software (Tracker Software), you can delete that folder.
  19. Open dns has filtering if you are allowed to use it.
  20. EIS and Malwarebytes

    Since I have 2 lifetime licenses for MBAM I guess when my EIS licenses are up, I will go to another program. Unless some thing changes some where.
  21. EIS and Malwarebytes

    Why not ? I have been running both on two Windows 10 desktops for quite some time. I do program each to ignore the other. Have not noticed a problem. I run Zemana and EIS on this laptop. If you are referring to the the way MBAM said that they are a antivirus replacement when version 3 came out, that was not the case. MBAM and an antivirus program do not do their jobs the same way.
  22. A question

    Self Protection is there so nothing can access the program/directory to attack the program
  23. To stop any possible problems will Protection Status > Disable All Components keep EIS from running until turned on again ? If not, best way to disable EIS until upgrade installed ?
