  1. My 23rd day with trouble; Apps don't install, or they crash after a few seconds. Apart from that, the system is 100% stable. No "traditional bluescreen"/system crash. I am far from an expert in many fields, but I have fixed all kind of computer problems myself, since 1983, within a day or two. This time I'm really stuck. Latest: MS Defender now (not shown before) report "HackTool: Win32/AutoKMS, 10.04.2020 17:46 (Active)" - "Start Actions - Hacktool: Win32/keygen ....High". I'm unsure what Defender did about it. I try to follow this : https://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-hacktool-win32-autokms/ , but MBSetup.exe crash as soon as "Installing" starts. Only the two M.2's installed/connected, Everything I have tried to install the past weeks is licensed software, and/or free software. (Emissoft, EaseUS Todo Backup, EaseUS Partition Master, Macrium Reflect, Faststone image viewer/capture (free, but I have licenses for both) ++ Online scan (F-secure, Eset): Downloading install file OK, but installing (as adimin or not) leads to crash within 5-30 secs, during installation or performing the task. I reboot a lot. Secure boot is set to UEFI, boot manager on M.2 as the only boot option. More info, written earlier today: Many of the installed programs also crash (when I restore old images) Usually Werfault.exe report something like "Instruction ...referred memory at address..... Memory could not be read /...could not be written." All Microsoft programs works OK (Outlook, Excell, Notepad...). Edge, Chrome, Emisosoft, EaseUs Partition Master and some other program work OK. Installers for online scans (Eset, F-secure) crash. EEK crash It doesn't matter if I start anything normally, or as admin. I have also had a lot of these errors WDDMStatus, AliyunWrapExe, NVIDIA Web Helper, AISuite3, SearchProtocolHost, DipAwayMode, acrobat_sl, unins000, epm0, FXC_ProxyProcess ++, but not so many of these lately. I have made several clean install of Windows Pro 10/64. Problems persists. Install image from july 2019. Problems persists. Update Windows. Problems persists. Roll back Windows build 1909. Problems persists. 4 x 16 RAM, Corsair . Have tried 2x16 GB in slot A1/2, or only B1/B2. I have run several memory tests. BIOS, HWInfo and laser thermometer show low temperatures. OCCT stress test OK. HWInfo report CPU 2.2 GHz in "security mode". 3.7 GHz otherwise. I now run with only two M.2's installed. All HDD's USB's are disconnected. ASUS ROG Crosshair Hero VII Wifi (july 2019). Replaced a few days ago with ASUS X570-PRO AMD Ryzen 7 2700x Samsung M.2 (2016) replaced with Samsung M.2 SSD 970 EVO+. Clean install of OS. Problems persist. Update Win, problems persist. Install image from july 2019 (no problems), problems persist. GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. Tried both "Gamer-driver" and "Studio-driver". Now unable to reinstall/change driver. I also started a thread at Tom's hardware March 23rd (https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/lot-of-programs-installers-crash-lot-of-werfault-exe.3584615/#post-21660305 )
  2. I think, for me, it is just an update issue. Let us see if someone from Emsisoft comment this. I love that Emsisoft is (usually) completely silent and would prefer not to be "scared" unnecessarily 😉 😉
  3. I regularly get this message from Windows 10 : "Virus and threat protection. Check the virus protection. Windows Defender Antivirus and Emsisoft Anti-Malware is disabled. " The disabling is just for a few seconds because if I click it, I see that everything is OK. Do I need to to worry?
  4. I see that many posts are referring to trial versions, but I can't find anyone... Here is why I want to try before I buy...: I don't mind buying another security program (Emisoft Anti-malware or Emisoft Internet Security ), but how many CAN I have, and how many SHOULD I have?I have been a computer geek since 1983, although far from your league, or many of the commentators here :-) I have been using AVG since it came out, and AVG IS for several years.Last year I also bought Malwarebytes and Reason Core Security. Always PRO/Premium versions.Yesterday BleepingComputers excellent guide "fix-malicious-web-site-blocked-alert-from-svchost.exe" saved my day, with the help of iExplore, HitmanPro and adwcleaner. After that, I bought HitmanPro and HitmanPro Alert (License for HMP also activated HMP.A).But, now I should also buy Emisoft Internet Security..? (reccomended by BleepingComputers)Which one of my security programs should I stop using/stop subscribing to, if any..?
