  1. Hmm....just when I was convinced that cloud scanning is better. So, EAM local scanning is not just for privacy concerns. Um, is there an Emsisoft Blog (recent) article expressing that local scanning is better than cloud scanning ... and not just for privacy? Is there an Emsisoft Blog (recent) article expressing that cloud scanning technology is ineffective against certain types of threats. Thanks again
  2. Do you mean EAM "Cloud scanning" is not as effective for detecting all types of threats vs EAM "Local scanning" for detecting all types of threats? Do you mean that EAM "Local scanning" for detecting all types of threats is more effective than EAM "Cloud scanning" for detecting all types of threats? EAM employs Antimalware Network query. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Do you mean that "Cloud scanning" used by other security solutions is not as effective as "Local scanning" used by EAM. Do you mean that "Cloud scanning" used by other security solutions is not as effective - were those other security solutions using "Local scanning". Signatures are used in the cloud.....by other security solutions. Norton for example uses traditional Anti-Virus technology where a hybrid (~90% cloud | ~10% local for prevalent) threat database (cloud always queried) with static and heuristic signatures is kept for the purposes of real-time and on-demand scanning of files and programs. Do I want an ever growing threat database pushed down per hour using my machines limited processing resources. Or, Do I want meta data uploaded accessing always up to date threat database using unlimited cloud processing resources. Do I want emulator - heuristic analyzer run on my machine using my machines limited computing power. Or, Do I want emulator - heuristic analyzer run off my machine using unlimited cloud computing power. Regards w Respect
  3. Alternative ways to protect that don’t compromise privacy Some good news for all of you who have been told that there are no alternatives to collect data in order to keep you safe from malware: there are alternatives. They may require a bit more effort in programming and may be a little less convenient for software vendors, but they are proven to be just as efficient as methods that impact your privacy. https://blog.emsisoft.com/en/17153/antivirus-software-protecting-your-files-at-the-price-of-your-privacy/
  4. Yes, I meant Emsisoft Anti-Malware Wonder why Emsisoft has not moved Emsisoft Anti-Malware heavy lifting to the cloud. Just me. Thank you
  5. Hmm, lesson learned, for me, not to assume. Had I not read this thread. I would have gone on assuming Emsisoft AM Home is akin to most (to my understanding) device security solutions. So, the optional Antimalware Network is an opinion added to automated detection decision flow. Or, an opinion offered to user for manual detection decision flow. To confirm my now understanding. Analysis occurs locally. Analysis is primarily based on local database using local engines, using local resources with an optional Network (cloud) opinion (somehow) factored in. And the local database is 3rd party? Does Emsisoft detection analysis flow rely, perhaps, more from behavior - heuristic engines. Are there generalities that suggest Emsisoft AM Home detection analysis flow is more or less signature based vs behavior - heuristic - reputation based. Again, not sure why I just assumed that the heavy lifting was not done locally...any more. I assumed the evolution of all security solutions had moved their heavy lifting to the cloud. Just me. Thank you.
  6. Um, just curious - Correct me. Emsisoft database is always up to date because Emsisoft is cloud based device security. Emsisoft always queries the cloud for all determinations. Emsisoft local database is only used when device is offline or cannot reach Emsisoft servers. Thanks
  7. Maybe, try chrome://settings/system
  8. and topic more than two and a half years old is not locked? and issue with epp.sys delete is more than two and a half years old ?
  9. Um, this link calls https://help.emsisoft.com/en/ Where are the instructions to delete Edit: Never mind.....ran EmsiClean. EmsiClean_2019.09.01_22.37.35.txt
