  1. Thank you for the quick reply. Sorry to confuse you. I was asking about Online Armor Free version and not EIS. Again sorry to confuse you. What I meant was, "is Emsisoft going to make a standalone firewall based on the EIS firewall (as successor to OA Premium" -- can delete that). Online Armor is not discontinued...the last release date was : 10/15/2013...soon it will be a year...will it be updated?
  2. Have not tried out Emsisoft Internet Security yet (I do not have a license) but I do have OA Premium with me. I see that there is no update from the last version 7.0.0.1866. I aslo see here that in the new Emsisoft Internet Security the core firewall has been re-written differently from OA. Some questions if I may: OA has a free version, will the new firewall have a free version too..? Is Emsisoft going to make a standalone firewall as successor to OA Premium...? As of the moment I like the HIPS of OA(but is nearing it's license end). It's very good when I wanna block some activity that some applications tend to circumvent. If the HIPS feature will not be incorporated in the new firewall, is Emsisoft gonna make a new one or make the HIPS a standalone application in the future? I read here that HIPS seems to be not-needed by the normal user but I read here that the behavioral blocker only alerts the user when it senses a behavior in between the allowed or blocked. And that if the file reputation of the application is generally okay based on it's acceptance by a large number of people, no alerts will also be seen. (It's quite old and I do not know if it's relevant still.) http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/14339-emsisoft-anti-malware-and-emsisoft-internet-security-90-public-beta/page-3 Image Burn is mentioned there, I use it when I make ISO's but I also know that it tends to want to connect to home whenever you run it. It wants to update frequently like other freeware out there. Now since it is mentioned there that due to it's file reputation....the behavioral blocker will allow any outgoing connections of Image Burn, yes? So how can we control that kind of behavior? Of a legit-generally-accepted-application but always want to connect to the internet without my permission? Oftentimes my internet is slow and if there are applications that connect silently to home without me knowing it so I can terminate it then it may hog the bandwidth. I also am thinking of my kids..i usually restrict some of their applications by the HIPS... Just asking so I'd have a grasp as to what I will do..to renew or move on...
  3. -- Well that was the dump that was identified when I came up from the BSOD (the one that was highlighted in an OA window asking me to send or something..). As to "...how running OA on W7 can interfere with running it on XP" I don't know or I can't understand what you mean there..got confused.... I did install OA on the W7 partition alone. The XP partition had Avast IS(complete with firewall). Like I said when I use iReboot to boot to the XP partition I get the BSOD which is specifically Stop 0x08E. I use NeoSmart iReboot to dispose of going to select an OS everytime when I restart. Been using it without any problems with the former firewall. That IVT BlueSoleil has been with my system long before I used iReboot and OA. Using both IVT BlueSoleil and iReboot with the former firewall was not a problem. I even used Privatefirewall with that setup and there was no problem either. Now I mentioned previously that I placed exclusions for both the identified driver by Bluescreenview (IVT BlueSolei driver)and the iReboot folder in the Program Files and doing that I don't have the BSOD. Removing both I get the same BSOD altogether again. It's been 3 days since I was using the exclusions and without it and the observation is the same. The only installation (with that setup) was OA Premium and as observed I'd get the BSOD when I use iReboot to boot to the XP partition. When I dont use iReboot and restart>select OS> I do not get the BSOD. Did not have any problems with the setup prior OA Premium installation so I am keen that something in OA is triggering a reaction to iReboot or the IVT software to cause the BSOD. I reverted using a system image I created with the former firewall with iReboot and the IVT software, booted to W7 and booted to the XP partition using iReboot and there is no BSOD. There was not anything new except OA Premium there. It's kind of strange but hey, I am having this BSOD the reason I went here for help and assistance. I am not that techy but you will agree with me that from setup that was having "no issues" then you install something new and get an " new issue" that factor "is" a part or the "main" of that problem. I just do not understand how so I ask.
  4. Hi GT500, Thank you for the help. Incidentally, the Bluescreenview data shows information about: Crash Address : ntkrnlpa.exe+40938 Stack Address 1 : ntkrnlpa.exe+4071a Stack Address 2 : BTHidMgr.sys+226b Stack Address 3 : BTHidMgr.sys+8a9 that BTHidMgr.sys is in relation to a bluetooth application I have BlueSoleil of IVT Corporation so I place F:\Program Files\IVT Corporation\BlueSoleil together with the F:\Program Files\NeoSmart Technologies\iReboot in the exclusions tab. I used iReboot and booted to XP. There was no BSOD. Still observing though.... If that is the culprit or a part of the culprit...I wonder why the OA installation affected that because the previous firewall I used did not.
  5. Hello GT500, I just installed OA Premium again in tandem with Avast IS ver7(no firewall) and went on to boot to XP using iReboot of NeoSmart technologies. I had the same Stop 0x08E. But now I have the details from Bluescreenview and the dumpfile that was created. Can I instead send that one via PM. Previously after installation I clicked Start>Restart and went on to the boot sequence selection (as this was a dual-boot)and successfully booted to XP. So doin that there was no BSOD. I had iReboot prior OA Premium installation and was using it without any glitches so the OA installation must have triggered that or something to obtain a BSOD. I also placed the F:\Program Files\NeoSmart Technologies\iReboot in the exclusions list. Still have not tested if I will get the same Stop 8x08E when I use iReboot though.... Thank you Alex
  6. Hi, Might have anybody experienced BSOD with OA Premium? I can install it okay but after 2 to 3 days when I boot to another OS (XP) I get a Stop 0x8E BSOD. That did not happen when I was using another firewall. In this particular pc the arrangement is a dual-boot Windows 7 x32 and XP Service Pack 3 and I use iReboot from NeoSmart Utilities. With another firewall the arrangement was okay. Only when I install OA Premium. Now I am sure that my ram and har disk is okay as I tested it with MemTest86+ and HDD Tune and Western Digital Diagtools. The BSOD happens when I click to reboot to XP. My XP has a different configuration (Avast IS with firewall and MBAM). The Windows 7 x32 is with Avira Premium Security Suite version 10 and OA Premium. Now I even tried using a clean system image without AV / firewall. Installed OA Premium and then Avira. Same issue appeared. As a result I went back to my previous combination for the Windows 7. Now I wanna use my license for OA Premium and I was not able to use it properly as I get this BSOD when I install OA so when I get that I go back to using my old combination. Any ideas guys? As of this writing I am using the old combination --without OA. I was not able to get hold of the minidump files as I reverted back using a system image. What I may try to make it work? Some ideas to make me use my license please... Thank you.
  7. How does it fair in terms of "lightness"...? I wanna use it on an XP SP3 machine with 3gb ram but the last version was a bit heavy during browsing./ It wasn't so when not. Any ideas...?
  8. Okay thanks. Anyone know when the blocklist at COU will be updated? I used to use that but it outdated since last year I think...
  9. Hello, Where can I find an updated OA Blocklist..? I went to Blocklist Pro Security and it was marked as a malicious site by Norton DNS. Please see image attached. Anyone please...?
  10. With this update OA intercept the Zeroaccess rootkit even with default setting right?
  11. Thanks and all are proud for Emsisoft!!!!!!
  12. Hi, Saw the thread there at Wilders and I see that an update is ready. Is is now as I write available? Regards, Alex
  13. Thanks and I saw your post at Wilders. Yeah!!!!!
  14. Hi, Friend text-ed me this link and I'd like to share it here. Cxxxxx Dxxxxxx Pxxx Byapssed by Zeroaccess rootkit What setttings may be done in OA so that we are protected from this Zeroaccess rootkit? I am using OA Premium at the moment and will soon be in the free version if I can't renew. Any settings that we should adjust for protection? I refuse to believe that OA can't nail this one. OA Premium has really improved imho. Less pop-ups and seems lighter. Regards, Alex
