Emsisoft Internet Security is failing to fully scan

Recommended Posts

I've had an interesting past 6 days with my computer. My current situation is that it won't finish scanning my computer. It will get to between 55% and 65% before getting caught in some figurative "mud." This is on full scan. Quick scan finishes just fine.

 

 

Sequence of events to this point:

 

- Noticed my CPU was frequently maxing out when idling.

- Discovered that Emsisoft was failing to detect a couple Trojans that got onto my computer, evenually had to use a free AVG scan to get them noticed by Emsisoft Scans.

- Just so happened to be cloning my HHD to an SSD about the time I noticed the Trojans, so I had them on my new HD and had to clean them off of it after the cloning.

- After a few dozen scans by Emsisoft IS, the Emergency Kit, and free AVG, finally got all the malicious "Do-Hickies" out of the system (I think).

- Uninstalled AVG

- A bunch of programs started to fail to open due to a variety of 0x00000##### errors, so I had to do a wide variety of reinstalls of things like Firefox, Steam, and OneNote.

- Now that the malware is purged, Emsisoft is brusied after the battle and needs fixing. I attempted to reinstall it too, but it is incapable of uninstalling due to the uninstaller freezing.

 

Suggestions from here? My goal is to get Emsisoft to Scan 100% again.

Update:

 

After leaving the scanner to run for 24 hours, it did finally finish without throwing an error.

 

The 0x0000###### errors stopped occuring once I temporarily disabled the Emsisoft protection, so I seem to have taught my client to quarantine something I need for my programs to run. I'll keep working on figuring that part out. :angry:

 

As it stands, my Anti-Virus is doing its 100% scans now :D , but they take much longer than previously. Now that I'm looking back, I think its because I changed my scan level from Balanced to Thorough. :P

 

So, I think I've got most of my problems solved. Hope this helps someone else who Googles this problem. :)
