  2. Unless you 'manually opt out' of Amazon's new Sidewalk feature it has been "enabled 'by default' since June 9th" to most Amazon smart devices. What is Sidewalk? It can use your neighbor's Wi-Fi to increase the range of your existing Amazon smart devices & visa versa. It works by increasing the range & efficiency of the devices by using some of the neighboring Wi-Fi's bandwidth it can connect to. Amazon said Sidewalk uses just a small fraction of your Wi-Fi bandwidth. Amazon also claims that measures have been implemented that will ensure that the connections are secure & anonymous but some privacy/security experts have been sounding the alarm that it could also be used for nefarious purposes by tech savvy hackers. Here are the devices that are affected by Amazon's decision to go ahead with Sidewalk: Ring Floodlight Cam (2019) Ring Spotlight Cam Wired (2019) Ring Spotlight Cam Mount (2019) Echo (3rd gen and newer) Echo Dot (3rd gen and newer) Echo Dot for Kids (3rd gen and newer) Echo Dot with Clock (3rd gen and newer) Echo Plus (all generations) Echo Show (all models and generations) Echo Spot Echo Studio Echo Input Echo Flex If you're not comfortable with the possible future security/privacy issues that may arise and/or are not thrilled with the idea of sharing your Wi-Fi with your neighbors your only option is go into the settings for each device and manually disable Sidewalk. To turn off Sidewalk with Echo first open the Alexa app -> navigate to 'More' then select 'Settings' -> open the 'Account Settings' tab -> find the new Sidewalk section -> select 'Off' To turn it off with Ring first open the Ring app -> navigate to 'Control Center' -> find the new Sidewalk option -> select 'Disable' Regards, Ritchie...

  4. Although Immunet won't work there are a few AV solutions that will actually still work with XP. Some are free, some not. Here's a link you might find useful from the folks at WindowsReport. https://windowsreport.com/antivirus-windows-xp-service-pack-3/#:~:text=BullGuard%2C Panda Security Cloud Antivirus Free%2C Kaspersky Lab%2C,free%2C while others come with a price tag. Having an AV that will provide virus protection is one thing but keep in mind that there exists security vulnerabilities with the XP OS itself that no AV can protect you from. For that reason, you might want to seriously consider not using your back-up computer for 'any on-line usage' especially any on-line banking or shopping where you have to submit sensitive data. That's my suggestion for what it's worth. Cheers, Ritchie...
  5. Immunet hasn't supported XP for some time now as you're aware of. Any older builds of Immunet that was compatible with XP (both 32 & 64bit) will no longer work even if you have it already installed or have or some (very questionable) old, off-line installer package. The servers will not process these types of connection requests to the cloud. Here is a link to the official home page where you can view the requirements needed to use Immunet. https://www.immunet.com/index Regards, Ritchie...

  7. Hi. My spare computer, which I use for offline work presently, is a Dell Plll Desktop with Windows XP. I used it when Immunet was version 3. Will the current version of Immunet work with XP? It is a 600 mHz processor with 768 RAM, so I know I'm pushing it. It would only be used temporarily, in emergencies.

    Creppy Design

    Update the UI ASAP. 1st top priority. The starter of the topic is 100% right. Just remove all the outdated now, fantastic super wow complex backgrounds with shadows and flashy corners that are influenced by Windows Vista and Windows 7. Even drop down menus animations would not need if they are acting like the computer is 486. You do not need to reinvent the wheel, just look the top 10 competitors, change the colors according to your company, put your logo and you are there already. Simplicity is everything. And mouse hover change color of a link was always important in the UX that is still not implemented.
  9. Yeah, I've seen the same behavior before too. If you try to scroll down the list too quickly you might get an error message. I would still highly recommend you apply those custom Exclusion rules just to avoid having to go through that again.
  10. I was able to recover all files by not scrolling to the bottom of the list.
  11. That's all good, but the bug is in the interface of IMMUNET itself. I am unable to recover the file due to an error (on the screenshot). When scrolling through the list of files in quarantine, an error occurs with the window in the screenshot, after which the delete and restore buttons are disabled. Also error window can't be closed.
  12. The Immunet team would like to wish a happy & safe Memorial Day to everyone! Also, for the families that have had a loved one pay the ultimate sacrifice to protect our democracy and way of life, you are not forgotten by us!
  13. Ok, thanks for the additional info! That's helpful! If you're sure nothing actually malicious is going on with Thunderbird then try creating a few custom 'Exclusion' rules with Immunet. First create an exclusion rule for Thunderbird's process which is thunderbird.exe. Thunderbird.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files (x86)" or sometimes in a subfolder of the user's profile folder—normally C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\. Also create an exclusion rule for the 'Profiles file path' which will look something like this, C:\User\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\RANDOMDIGITS.default Although not recommended if the issue persists after creating these two exclusion rules one last option would be to create an exclusion for Thunderbird's 'entire Program Files folder' directory. Let me know if that corrects the issue or you need any instructions on how to create these exclusions. Cheers, Ritchie... P.S. - I'm not unfamiliar with Mozilla products as I have been an alpha/beta tester for them in the past. In fact, I was a die-hard Firefox user for years until I switched to Edge recently as I find that browser to more secure.
  14. i think, that this is not the case. i need to restore mozilla thunderbird mailbox file. file "inbox" not blocked any programm or process. the problem is that the IMMUNET encrypts the quarantine file.
  15. Normally when a file can't be restored or deleted from Quarantine it was just a temporary file to begin with. The program that created the .tmp file automatically deleted it when you closed the program.
  16. maybe i neeed newer version of drh.dll? Or newer VC++ redist and Net Framework?
  17. i have similar problem on win10, when tryn' restore 3 files from end of quarantined files list I have an error, when I slide list of quarantined files till end of list (by mouse or by slider down arrow in list) after the error message appears, the "delete" or "restore" buttons become inactive type unconsistent == type mismatch any advices?
  18. No, I can't recall anyone else reporting a similar issue like this to be honest. Have you tried to create 'custom exclusion rules' for both OneDrive & Dropbox's 'entire Program Files folder' directories with Immunet? If not, give that a try to see if that corrects the issue.
  19. I use a couple cloud storage services like OneDrive, Dropbox, etc. The cloud storage services now allow for your files to be visible on your computer but only be downloaded on demand. It makes it nice to save space on your drive when space is limited. After running a scan with Immunet I noticed my drive space was rapidly filling up. My files were being downloaded so Immunet could scan them. Is there a way to fix this, or make it an option to only scan the downloaded files? Luckily I had stopped it, so it only downloaded about 200GB. This for me is the only reason I can't use Immunet, which is a shame it's so light wight on resources, it makes it very wonderful as a second opinion AV client. Most other Antivirus products I have tried don't download those files inside the cloud storage. I am mostly checking to see if someone has run across this, or if anyone knows of an easy fix. Also would love to see if this can be added as a feature to toggle downloading vs not downloading files in cloud storage.
  20. Microsoft has decided to end all support for Internet Explorer 11 after Aug. 17, 2021 which still currently remains a very popular browser worldwide after being around for about 25 years. They have been pushing their Microsoft Edge browser to IE users for a while. Microsoft recently issued a press statement basically saying that IE11 is getting old, slow and increasingly more vulnerable to security issues & encourage every IE user to upgrade to Edge. For IT professionals: this will also affect apps or services that rely on IE. More info can be found at this Microsoft documentation article regarding this. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/announcements/internet-explorer-11-support-end-dates Regards, Ritchie...
  21. Some folks claim PrivaZer is one of the best drive cleaning/optimization tools out there, even preferring it over the venerable CCleaner. I would suggest you submit a False Positive report at this URL. https://www.immunet.com/false_positive You will need the correct SHA256 hash for the program to submit a proper FP report. If you don't have that info contact the original developers or download & install a good third-party checksum calculator like HashCalc to get the required info yourself. It's freeware & doesn't require a degree in computer science to figure out how to use it btw. https://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Security-Related/HashCalc.shtml I included some extra help when submitting the FP report. Here's the MD5 checksums for both the free & paid versions of PrivaZer's processes I got from the developers. Just copy & paste this info to the report. MD5 (PrivaZer_free.exe) : DE4553DFDCD8DBCF3DF99F1C77D3CE1C MD5 (PrivaZer.exe) : 1D75A70EACAF32DADD277A2D643C7178 Cheers, Ritchie...
  22. One other thing. Is anyone ever going to look into this forum's EX0 sever error messages that has continued for about a year now? I continue to have forum members complaining about this error & I can't blame them as I find it really annoying too! "PLEASE FIX THIS!!!"
  23. Hey zom, One way you can access your Private Messages without dealing with the "ever present EX0 server error" is first log in of course, click on the Private Message envelope icon located on the upper right hand side of the home page & then click on 'Go to inbox' instead. Then just click on the message you want to read from the PM list.
  24. P.S. to anyone that may have PM'd me about this issue, I'm not ignoring you, I just can't get access or reply on this forum software as it doesn't work properly. I can just see the preview that gets sent to my e-mail. Will keep periodically trying...
  25. Update: I have just tried Immunet on 2 different machines, and my previous trick of enabling ClamAV and database updates, but not blocking mode, and waiting for ages doing nothing, seems to have resulted in an initial download of the databse files main.cvd, daily.cvd and bytecode.cvd on both machines. Now, clicking "update now" from the GUI correctly results in the message "virus definitions are up to date". This is a very strange and intermittent issue. Maybe it is something to do with connectivity issues, especially since it began around a similar time to the ClamAV infrastructure no longer allowing database downloads via wget or a web browser. Having said that, the fact that a database download is attempted but fails to be applied seems rather odd to me, and would suggest it's actually an infrequent issue to do with write permissions to the Immunet installation folder (possibly Immunet's self-protection mechanism?). Anyway, I now have 2 Immunet installations where the ClamAV virus database has updated successfully at least once. Very strange but worth investigating by devs.
  26. Hi I run Kaspersky free Anti-Virus without appearing to have any compatibility issues since installing Immunet however Immunet prevents me running Privazer claiming it is Ransomeware. I have run Privazer for at least the last 3 years without any issues at all until installing Immunet. Turning Immunet settings all to "off" when trying to run Privazer does not prevent the issue neither does entering Privazer.exe as an exclusion. As a result I have uninstalled Immunet until I find a solution as I think its a good idea as a "backup" to my Kaspersky AV.
  27. Hi bbrez, There has been a report that there is a problem (once again) with the ability to update the ClamAV module with the newest build. This issue has been reported in several of the last builds as well. Here is a link to the most recent posted topic in the Immunet Support (Issues/Defects) section of the forum by zombunny regarding this issue. https://support.immunet.com/topic/12578-still-no-clamav-updates/ Regards, Ritchie...
  28. I've just tried the latest 7.4 version of Immunet, and the ClamAV update bug is still present. Enabling ClamAV and virus db updates should result in Immunet automatically downloading the main.cvd, daily,cvd, and bytecode.cvd files to %programfiles%\Immunet\clamav\[clamav-version]\ . No cvd or cld files appear anywhere on the partition where Windows is installed, tested over a period of several hours. Manually checking for updates from the Immunet GUI (main screen --> update now) results in an attempt to download the ClamAV databases (starting with daily.cvd), however this reaches 100% and then terminates with the error "The updates could not be installed. Please try again later". This always fails (the error is consistent). None of the various kluges or workarounds I've previously tried with older 7.x versions work any more. Meanwhile, a plain ClamAV installation updates flawlessly via freshclam. So just a warning to other Immunet users - you probably have no offline protection at all (or severely outdated offline protection). And a request to devs to actually fix this longstanding issue. Steps to reproduce: 1. Install Immunet on a fresh W10 x64 PC or VM. 2. Enable ClamAV and db updates, if not already enabled. 3. Wait for database to be downloaded, and/or manually update via "update now". Works on every machine I've tried so far, for the past few Immunet versions. What's most concerning (apart from the very longstanding nature of this bug) is that the failure is silent, unless the update has been triggered by the GUI. The silent failure potentially leads users into a false sense of security, thinking they have protection via ClamAV when in fact they don't.
