After installing EAM 9 scan times tripled (or more)

Recommended Posts

Hi -

 

Following an update problem - that caused my PC to permanently run at 100% - I uninstalled EAM, then downloaded and installed the latest version of EAM. 

 

The reinstall took place on the 11th July.

 

Since then my PC's daily scan - which in the past took less than two hours - took 6:57 hours (on the 12th) and 5:33 hours (on the 13th).

 

Herewith the log report for this morning:

 

 

Emsisoft Anti-Malware - Version 9.0
Last update: 2014/07/13 02:01:47 AM
User account: *****\*****

 

Scan settings:

 

Scan type: Custom Scan
Objects: Rootkits, Memory, Traces, C:\, D:\, E:\

 

Detect PUPs: On
Scan archives: On
ADS Scan: On
File extension filter: Off
Advanced caching: On
Direct disk access: Off

 

Scan start: 2014/07/13 03:30:04 AM

 

Scanned 414203
Found 0

 

Scan end: 2014/07/13 09:03:33 AM
Scan time: 5:33:29

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

 

 

I also have a second problem: the scan appears to insist on displaying a report when it ends. This prevents other automated tasks - including a reboot - to execute.

 

Any ideas as  to how I can prevent this ?

 

Kind regards

This morning it was 6:10.

 

Guys, I love your product, but I simply can't live with having to do multiple re-starts per day (thanks to Online Armor) plus now a six-hour scan time !!!

I have isolated one of the problems: File Guard.

 

Process Monitor reported that File Guard was doing some real strange things, so turned it off.

I unfortunately do not still have the log.

 

That said: reading through the log I discovered that File Guard was looping, calling repeatedly for details of a set that included "C:", "C:\Windows" plus a few others - and it looked as though it was stuck in the loop.

 

Once I disabled File Guard the EAM scan times dropped to four hours plus: better than six hours but nowhere near the previous < two hours.

 

BTW is there a forum setting than will notify me of any new postings in a thread that I am following ?

 

Many thanks

Those directories specifically of files in those directories?
