  1. We do cache scan results in the file guard (meaning each set of signatures is only ever used once to scan a file and a file won't be scanned again unless there are new signatures or the system gets rebooted). The on-demand scans do not cache scan results. If you do an on-demand scan, we think you will want to do an on-demand scan and not skip files during the scan.
  2. Ich habe dort genau das gesagt was ich hier jetzt wiederholt habe. In keiner der beiden Varianten steht, dass wir das zu der Standard Option gemacht haben, weil sich Leute vermehrt fuer eine Option entschieden haben. Es gab fuer Nutzer nichts zu entscheiden. Die Verteilung wer welchen Bestellvorgang zu sehen bekam war ausserhalb der Kontrolle des Nutzers. Ja, das wird derzeit ueberarbeitet. Derzeit ist es so, dass es Nutzer gibt die den User Account verwenden und andere die nur einen Lizenzkey benutzen. Ueber die naechsten Monate werden alle Nutzer zu Nutzeraccounts migriert, was dann
  3. Das ist nicht was bei dem A/B Test gemessen wurde. Beim A/B Test wurde gemessen, welche der Optionen zu allgemein mehr Verkaeufen fuehrt. Bedeutet: Es wurden mehrere tausend Testserien mit den unterschiedlichen Bestellverlaeufen gemacht und welcher Verlauf dann ueber mehrere Monate hinweg am Ende die meisten erfolgreichen Bestellungen vorzuweisen hatte, wurde als neuer offizieller Bestellvorgang uebernommen. Es ist also nicht so, dass sich mehr Leute fuer das Abo entschieden haben, sondern dass das blosse Vorhandensein der Option fuer ein Abo bzw. das Fehlen eines Abonements im Bestellvorgang
  4. Es ist alles Englisch ausser der von Usern verfasste Content und der Forenname fuer das Deutsche Forum. Sofern Invision keine offiziellen Uebersetzungen anbietet, wird sich daran auch nichts aendern.
  5. Hallo, Da die Forum Software keine offiziellen Uebersetzungen anbietet und Community Uebersetzungen letztlich allesamt unvollstaendig oder fehlerhaft sind und teilweise zu erheblichen Problemen bei der Installation von Sicherheitsupdates fuehren, haben wir uns dazu entschlossen alle nicht-offiziellen Uebersetzungen, inklusive der Deutschen Uebersetzung, zu entfernen. Fuer den Fall, dass jemand mit dem Forum jetzt nicht laenger zurecht finden sollte, bleibt stets der Weg uns via Chat oder Email zu kontaktieren: https://help.emsisoft.com/de/ Vielen Dank fuer das Verstaendnis.
  6. Hello everyone, We would like to inform you that due to a corrupted MySQL database we had to restore a recent forum backup. This means that all changes made since 2019-04-25 at 18:08:37 UTC have been lost. This includes among others: Posts, topics, registrations and profile changes. We apologise for the confusion and inconvenience this may have caused you.
  7. Nobody knows. Again, nobody knows. A couple of them were caught doing it (Qihoo most recently IIRC). If the testers become aware, it usually results in disqualification and sometimes a block from future tests for a certain time period. It probably depends a lot. I mean, do people still remember Panda being disqualified and hold it against them? I don't think so. Outside of a very small circle of enthusiasts nobody cares about these results. The rest will buy what PC Mag or a quick Google search tells them to buy. There is also like a huge grey area. If AV-C and AV-T publi
  8. Last time I checked standardised tests in education are just as controversial. But even if you ignore that: Tests in school are accumulative. Maybe it is different wherever you live, but at least here to even get to university you had to go through all the prerequisites. Meaning the fact that you are even allowed to take the test is the result of those thousands of tests you did before on the various topics through your school career up to that point where you demonstrated that you understood each of the sub-topics in question. Since the material taught doesn't radically change every couple of
  9. I agree and there were a couple of things in the last tests that I unfortunately am not able to talk about. One of the first things most testing companies make you do is sign an NDA. Otherwise they won't even tell you their prices or tell you anything. That's also why Arthur mentioned that we can't really comment as in depth as we would want to. I imagine people would be quite surprised about the amounts of money that exchange hands and all the discrepancies going on. I can completely understand why more and more companies drop out of testing. It almost feels arbitrary at times and unless you
  10. As Jeremy already mentioned: Most cloud storage providers offer revisioning. Meaning they keep old revisions of your files. Dropbox has support for it and Google Drive does as well (just click on the file in question, click on the hamburger menu and select "Manage versions"). It can be kind of a pain to roll back all your files though as there is often not a way to do it for your whole cloud storage but only on a per-file basis.
  11. It means that the tests done by AV-C and AV-T have a clear image of how they think AV software should work. The problem arises when your product doesn't fit the mould. Then you get penalized for not doing what everyone else does, even though what everyone else does may not be in the best interest of the user, to begin with. Best example: Snooping around in your encrypted connections, which literally every AV vendor screwed up at least once in the past and probably will continue to happen, exposing users to potentially greater risks than most malware does. For starters, the test sets ar
  12. Every time you log in, we will email you a code you have to type in before you get access. So standard Two Factor Authentication via email pretty much.
  13. Please don't create multiple threads in different forums with the same content. You won't get a reply quicker and it only makes you look like a spammer. I will close this thread here, as Elise already addressed your concern in your other thread here:
  14. It's just the way the forum software works. And yes, it will do a redirect. Yeah. Just shows how many people clicked it. It's email. So no. Send it manually to [email protected]
  15. If you don't have any application linked to the "mailto:" protocol, it will ask you which of your installed mail clients you wish to use. It's expected behaviour. We decided to remove the forum and move all feedback to an email group instead that can be read by everyone at Emsisoft.
  16. You can technically just remove all entries from your hosts file using Notepad. Just delete everything except the " localhost" entry if there is any. Lines starting with "#" are comments by the way. Pretty much. We are not an ad blocker, no. You use uBlock Origin which is pretty much the best adblocker you can get. So you are well covered in that area already. Correct. When you try to click the link, it will block access to the site. But I do understand that a lot of people would like to know before they click, which is why we consider adding it. Intere
  17. uBlock is exceptionally good at removing duplicate filter rules. So if you enable the MVPS filter list there, it will only enable it for stuff that isn't covered by other lists. That's also why in the rules list it says "x used out of y". Because it tells you how many rules it actually used out of that filter list. The rest was already covered by other lists. uBlock is also a lot more efficient as parsing and applying these filter rules than the DNS API in Windows is, which is the component that parses the "hosts" file. Depending on the browser you use, the "hosts" file may actually get i
  18. Just don't. You will hurt your general performance considerably. Better to just enable the MVPS filter list in uBlock. Kind of pointless. uBlock does a better job. Ad hosts blocked by uBlock can't set cookies in the first place. That's all it pretty much does if you are using Firefox. For someone who is concerned about their privacy it is interesting that you willingly send your entire surf history to any company in clear text: Literally every single website you browse to will get submitted in that way. Bitdefender Traffic Light isn't the only extension that does thi
  19. Sorry, der Beitrag wurde aus Versehen verschoben. Sollte jetzt wieder richtig sein. Ansonsten war die Inkludierung von Emsisoft, wie vom Autor in seinem Forum bereits bestaetigt, ein Versehen seinerseits. Wir verschicken keine vollstaendigen URLs. Wir verschicken nichtmal Domainnamen im Klartext. Wir verschicken ausschliesslich Hashes von Teilen des Domainnamens, die von uns nicht einmal zurueck in einen echten Domainnamen umgewandelt werden koennen. Die Idee ist im Endeffekt nicht, dass wir wissen wo da jemand grade rumsurft, sondern nur, dass wir genug Informationen haben um 99.9999% aller s
  20. You can use these two sites: http://malwaretest.emsisoft.com http://phishingtest.emsisoft.com Both of them should be blocked as malicious websites by both the surf protection as well as the extension.
  21. It depends on the type of scan. There seems to be some issue with scans using both Direct Disk Access and Alternate Data Stream scans on some systems. We are currently looking into it.
  22. Das Problem wird mit dem naechsten Programupdate, welches sich bereits in der Beta befindet, behoben.
  23. Anything above 2 GB is probably okay.

  25. Other companies have 10 to 100 times the number of employees we do. Having one person there that fixes bugs in Windows Insider builds isn't much of an issue there. However, us doing that would mean ~30% of all development time disappears to keep a couple of hobbyists happy who use a system that is not intended for use in production systems on their production system. We do include insider builds in our QA runs, so we know if or what is broken so we can fix it in time for a release. But unless something is fundamentally broken, risking system security or stability, we won't fix bugs specific to
