  1. My problem is just with WiFi. Will dig deeper tomorrow.
  2. The drop caused me to post twice. Which never happened before. Usually when I post it goes right out.
  3. Just noticed today that my speed is down and just got 2018.3.0.8555. Malwarewarebytes updated 3 days ago. Rebooted modem and router. Have Comcast and was getting 150 mbs and now down to 125 mbs. I did try stopping each and rebooting which proved nothing. Unsure if I want to go through uninstalling each, one at a time. Noticed this on two laptops, wifi and still have to work with wired desktop. Still testing Has anyone else noticed a slowdown ?
  4. Why check file extensions that normally do not cause a problem ? It would speed up scans not to allow every file extension although with cpu speeds today, one may not notice any difference.
  5. In Chrome the setting is Settings > Advanced > Use prediction service. On by default turn off
  6. Do a search because there are ways to disable chrome "prefetch". I just found one and have no way to test it. I doubt if Chrome can bypass the dns programmed in your router or entered in the network settings.
  7. OK, still waiting for it to happen again. Could have been a fluke.
  8. I will pay more attention. I do not believe it skipped the 10 am scan.
  9. I have a scan set for 10:00 am which works . It is 5:30 pm and it just did another scan. I don't really mind, but seems like a problem.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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 ?
  17. I need someone who can read those files. Been around long enough to know what is happening.
  18. The type of disks have nothing to do with this type of problem
  19. 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
  20. ZoneAlarm seems to be working ok so I will stick with it. Tnx for replies
  21. 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 !!
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
