Win 10 1909

Updated to new beta.. no issues with update.

1.....Did a malware scan and something odd happened. EEK always catches my eicar.txt file in downloads. This time it didn't, instead during the EEK scan Windows Defender notified me and I told it to allow it (see screenshot).

EEK scan then did not catch the eicar file in the scan. Does it pick up on Defender allowing it?

2..... Why is there a Emsisoft folder in ProgramData? It is called Updates and has only BD definitions listed in there but both files are empty. It does not get deleted with the other things in C\EEK obviously.

3.... When will I be able to use right-click delete on the C\EEK folder without being told it in in use? (I am using new beta 10048)

I just tested the deletion and ended up having to use sc delete epp

Logs of scan attached plus WD screenie.

hi stapp,

1. could you re-test with defender switched off ?
2. because eek uses that folder  for updates.
3. should work. to test this: epp should not run before eek starts, you can verify that with sc query epp.

just tested on w7 x64 and eek folder can be deleted.
will test on w10

Using 10048 on Win 10 build 10083.720

Okay. I installed EEK. I updated it and turned on beta updates and debug logs and updated again. Now using 10048 on Win 10 build. 

I closed EEK.

I did cmd as admin for query. Please see screenshots and logs attached.

I still cannot uninstall via right-click delete.

Did a malware scan and EEK caught eicar this time. This was with WD real time on. So perhaps there was a race last time and WD won.

Why does Emsisoft allow the updates folder to stay on the machine when EEK is deleted?

Cannot be avoided. 

To delete EEK, you manually have to remove the folder where EEK is running from.
The update folder is a separate thing.

Occurs on W10 only. After a reboot you can deleted the EEK folder.

We will check that.

ps. you sent logs.db3 instead of the debuglogs :P. i've replicated the issue, so we have the debuglogs now.

Frank with EAM debug logs are easy to find C\Progdata\Emsi\logs

With EEK I cannot find them even though I have debug logging enabled (selected always option)

Tell me where they are please  (a tooltip on debug logging for EEK would be handy)

There are none in C\EEK logs only logs.db3, and none in ProgData\Emsisoft, only updates.

stapp,  you can find the  eek logs in C:\ProgramData\Emsisoft\Logs

debuglogging switch didn't work too well in the previous beta. 
That's one of the reasons we released 2020.3.2 beta. you might try to toggle it off and on again to get it activated

I have tried switching it off and on.. no joy.

Could it be ''enabled always' that is not working?
