Guard Settings Problem

Recommended Posts


I have EAM with OA running under Windows 7 64-bit.

I scan with the following Guard Settings enabled (ticked):

Guard: File Guard

Activate File Guard, Additionally Scan All Files When They Are Created or Modified, Scan Only Files With The Following Extensions (using default list), Detect Riskware, Protect The PC Even If No User Is Logged On

According to the scan log, the riskware and file extension filters are off.

I have uninstalled EAM, rebooted and cleaned with CCleaner, then reinstalled EAM. No change.

I uninstalled again and then used the emsisoft cleaner which found no traces. Reinstalled. No change.

I know that some files were missed during the uninstall because my old scan logs were still available.

Incidentally, is direct disk access necessary, how is it switched on?

Any ideas?

When doing a manual scan Riskware will only be scanned when using the 'Custom' scan settings and you have Riskware enabled in the settings there.

Hi Stapp

Thanks very much. Please would you tell me which is better;

  • A custom scan with all the options ticked
  • A "deep" scan

The deep scan takes longer (33 minutes against 19 minutes for a custom scan) and both scan around 419000 files

The deep scan examines most things, while the custom scan filters file types but includes cookies,etc.

The custom scan picked up a tracking cookie that the deep scan missed.

Decisions, decisions...
