  1. When Outpost Security Suite was sold and taken off the market, I searched the product forums and wound up with Emsisoft. Still happy with the product. I can get Norton free with Comcast > NO WAY. I was lucky enough to repair a telephone system that ran circles around every other system on the market. Lucent & Northern Telecom included. because of flexible and easy to program software. A few minutes and an external relay wow ! turn on a coffee pot for when I arrived in the morning. I kid you not. So "real world is all I look at in every product I buy". I believe that testing companies are out there to PUSH certain products. Product forums seem to have these kind of threads every so often. The way I look at them is "Someone trying to cause problems for their own gratification and people should ignore them"
  2. I am confused with this patch. I heard about the MS update which I never got. Have it now, just have to install it. >There wasn't a bios/microcode update for my Asus mobo that I could find unless the patch from GRC.com was supposed to fixed the problem. < I didn't pay much attention to the warning last year & was waiting for a bios update which never came. Asus doesn't update 4 year old mobo's I guess. So I am between a rock and no place !!! lol
  3. I also run a i7 4770K also and the hit was bad. I just picked on Chrome, but could see the problem with other programs. Sometimes I wonder about the "panic" with some of the malware. Let's face malware will never end !!
  4. I booted the desktop today and it is running normally with the grc.com meltdown/inspectre program disabled.
  5. I have a Haswell cpu in one desktop and the speed slowdown is a big problem. Only use it once a week. I disabled the protection the last time I used the machine. What I noticed, is that the first time I run Chrome or another program it is very slow to load. Fast if I open it again. I guess because some of the program is not cleared from memory when program shutdown. I was looking for the Microsoft patch, but it is not shown. Might be because the patch was installed in an earlier version of Win 10. It is on 1809 now. This weekend when I fire it up, I will find out if the slowdown is still there. KB4482887 is not installed, at least not in 1809
  6. I just got this also. Windows 10 Pro. Pale Moon,Firefox & Chrome installed. Chrome default
  7. Good luck with GoDaddy. If you have an account, you may get somewhere. Didn't help me !
  8. My mistake, wrong program. It was for Malwarebytes. Just try their uninstall tool. It should remove everything about Emsisoft on your computer. Don't forget to reboot twice before reinstalling.
  9. OK they just made it harder to repair. I would use their uninstall tool or their repair tool. Either should work.
  10. Probably one of the programs uninstall files got corrupted. One way to fix it is to reinstall the program which should repair the files.
  11. All depends if Google thinks extensions also cause a problem. Remember Google wants to know everything about you and control how you use the internet. That is the whole problem, no one knows what Google will do. I think including Google.
  12. Found out long time ago that many event errors are timing related. Windows expects something should happen in a certain period of time and when it doesn't an error is generated. Unless I notice a possible problem, I no longer check the event log.
  13. I just tested it with & without exclusion Win 10 1803. Definite lag closing & min around 2-3 sec. Excluding it no delay.
  14. I will use any other browser but Edge. To me it is worse than IE. Because fire fox has trouble rendering some sites, I switched to Chrome. Google spying ? I don't care as I don't have anything interesting to anyone else. Targeted ads ? they are stores I would go to anyway. There is a setting to stop the dns in Chrome.
  15. If you can get the iso on a flash stick, it may install ok. Been known since XP that Windows Update may read you computer wrong which will make any upgrade/update fail.
  16. Had a problem with Win 10 1803 and did a repair install. That killed AM, upon reinstall, the install said my license expired. Not until 12/18. Anyone around to check license for me ? Got correct code, too many installs Please fix I also emailed sales with request.
  17. You might want to go check with File Explorer and remove all the leftover folders & files left behind. There are probably many entries in the Registry left behind. Could pass some time if you are bored and delete them, although they won't do any harm.
  18. Eicar detection not used for some time, too old. Mbam is not an anti-virus
  19. When Emsisoft dumped their firewall, I installed Comodo FW free on 4 Win 10 computers, One day later it was gone. Going back years, I would not install Comodo anything because it would not play nice with other programs. Maybe it has changed, but still not convinced.
  20. The latest that just came out Windows 10 Pro Nothing in the logs except something was blocked Only for firefox My other laptop updated ok so the false positive must have been corrected
  21. Blocking any software I want is one way of losing a customer > FAST Fix it
