Do I need these in addition to Emsisoft?


Recommended Posts

I have a question about all these services, too.

 

I have MSE, SuperAnti Spyware Prof, and WinPatrol.

My Captain Optimizer just expired.

 

Do I need any of these to run in addition to my Emisoft?

 

My computer seems to have slowed down a bit.

 

Thanks for your help.

WinPatrol is always good to have.

You really don´t need MSE and SAS.

 

Emsisoft Anti-Malware (EAM & MSE works well together, so you can keep MSE if you want.

I´ve used them together since MSE´s first betaversion was released.

But if you have MSE and EAM together then you should use "mutual exclusions", which means to tell both programs to ignore each other.

Your computer being slow is probably because of 3 antimalwareprograms running together.

 

In the filesystem MSE is called Microsoft Security Client.

 

Exclusions for MSE to enter in EAM

 

under "Process":

 

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\Antimalware\MsMpEng.exe

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\Antimalware\NisSrv.exe

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe

 

You can also add the Microsoft Security Client-folder(s):

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Security Client\ (if you have a 64-bit O/S)

 

and under "process": C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\Antimalware\MpCmdRun.exe (if you need to run MSE via commandline)

 

that´s "my" exclusions for MSE....

 

 

Exclusions for EAM to enter in MSE

 

under "Settings"

 

Excluded files and locations: your EAM-folder (C:\Program Files\Emsisoft...)

 

Excluded Processes:

a2.guard.exe

a2service.exe

a2start.exe

a2cmd.exe

I am clueless~~is it possible for you to give me some screen shots?

 

I am trying to find the things of which you are speaking, but really having a hard time of it.

 

Sorry to be so dense, but I want to do this correctly.

 

Thank you ever so much.

No problem.

 

Here's how to exclude MSE in Emsisoft Anti-Malware:

  1. Open Emsisoft Anti-Malware from the icon on the desktop.
  2. Click Scan in the menu on the left.
  3. In the lower-menu click on the Scan whitelist link.
  4. In the box under Type click the little down arrow and change it from File to Process (you may need to click in the box for the arrow appear).
  5. Click in the white box below Item to make a button with three dots (...) appear, and then click the ... button.
  6. Navigate to the MSE directory (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\), and double-click on msseces.exe to add it.
  7. Navigate to the MSE directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\Antimalware\ and double-click on MsMpEng.exe to add it
  8. Navigate to the MSE directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\Antimalware\ and double-click on NisSrv.exe to add it
  9. In the box under Type click the little down arrow and change it from File to Folder
  10. Click in the white box below Item to make a button with three dots (...) appear, and then click the ... button.

  11. Navigate to the MSE directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\ and click OK

  12. Navigate to the MSE directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Security Client\ (if you have a 64-bit O/S) and click OK

 

Then you have to do the same in MSE....

I´m currenly using another O/S without MSE installed so i can´t give you exact instructions.

But you have to doubleclick on the MSE-icon

Click settings

Navigate to excluded processes and add the EAM-files as described in my previous post above.

Navigate to excluded folders and add the EAM-folder as described

Ok, I think I've gotten it correct now. Thank you!

 

I just turned off/disabled SAS for the time being. I hate to uninstall it as I have a lifetime license.

 

Or can you tell me how and what files to exclude?

 

Which do you think is better?

Good, i´m glad i could help you.

No, I don´t use SAS.so i have no idea.

I tried it a few years ago but got problems so i uninstalled it.

Do a search in the forum, i think i saw something about SAS recently....

 

I hardly know what SAS is, and i can´t remember having seen any testresults for SAS.

EAM is the best of those 3.....

Don´t worry.

EAM and MSE works fine even without mutual exclusions.

Your computer may be a bit slow and the scan for each program can take longer, but you will not see any big problems.

I have had both EAM & MSE together, without exclusions, for a long time.

Actually i never noticed any big difference when i added exclusions....

 

If you create 2 screnshots, one of the exclusions in EAM and one of the exclusions in MSE and then post them here, then i can verify if you have done it correctly.

I can´t see which processes you have excluded in EAM, because the filenames are not visible.

If you put your mouse immediately to the left of "scan" in the top row then click the left button and drag "scan" all the way to the right, then the complete filepath will be visible.

Then take a new screenshot.

You have probably done it right if you have followed my advice, but to verify i need a new screenshot .

The 2 MSE-screenshots looks ok.

It´s ok, no problem.

But to verify i needed to see what you have excluded.

Those exclusions in EAM is correct.

I can´t give you any advice regarding SAS as i don´t use it, so i suggest you turn off SAS, at least until someone else says different.

 

Two other exclusions to add in both EAM & MSE

 

under folder:

C:\Program Files\WinPatrol

 

under process

WinPatrol.exe

WinPatrolEx.exe

 

btw. which firewall are you using ?

Ok, well i should have said C:\Program Files\WinPatrol or similar, depending on where you have installed it....

My Winpatrol-folder is on E:\Program Files\WinPatrol as i have all programs on a separate partion.

 

Those screenshots are ok.

 

I asked about the firewall because if you have a firewall blocking outgoing traffic then you will probably get problems with Winpatrol being unresponsive.

If that´s the case you can send me a PM and i will tell you what to do.

I don´t think Emsisoft like it if we discuss configuring windows firewall for a non-emsioft program.....

That might be too offtopic.
