On several machines, rootkit scan gets stuck on xinputhid.sys

Recommended Posts

Seen this a couple of times now. When performing a malware scan on a new Emsisoft install the scan gets stuck with xinputhid.sys - after about 10 minutes I normally just stop the scan and move on.

Anyone else seen this or any way to work around it ( other than excluding that file before I do the first scan ? )

This is on Windows 10 Pro with Emsisoft 2018.1.1.8439.

We have a fix for scan certain freezes available in beta:

If you'd like to try it, then here's how to install it:

  1. Open Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
  2. Click on Settings in the menu at the top.
  3. Click on Updates in the menu at the top.
  4. On the left, under Update Settings, click on the box to the right of Update feed and select Beta from the list.
  5. Click on the Update now button on the right side.
