I recently installed VPNArea Chamaleon software (https://vpnarea.com/front/home/wincham)
Everything okay until I checked the option to start the software at startup. The next time I boot the computer, Emsisoft freezes completelly and VPN Area does not start and even some programs remain unusable.
The problem occurs when the VBS file VPNArea uses at startup is executed to start itself with UAC:
Set UAC = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
UAC.ShellExecute "C:\Users\darkl\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\VPNArea Chameleon.lnk", "", "", "runas", 1
I have Windows 10 Creators Update x64 and the latest version of Emsisoft Internet Security.
I made some tests and changing the VBS Script above to use another path to another LNK file in you desktop for example, also causes the antivirus freeze. At least I changed the path to the Discord lnk in my desktop and happened the same. So this issue seems that has nothing to do with VPNArea.
Also, this seems to only happen when Behavior Blocker is turned on.
