  1. Yesterday
  2. Bitdefender currently has a market share of about 10% according to OPSWAT and that's not a negligible amount of people. I will be grateful if you could notify the developers about the problem.
  3. I agree with you SMV, newyorkjet's workaround is a less than ideal solution since that does leave your system slightly more vulnerable to infection by leaving the Windows temp files not being scanned. The devs really need to look at this situation with Bitdefender in my view.
  4. Glad I could be of assistance Liangyu.L and thanks for the additional Like! Cheers, Ritchie...
  5. Last week
  6. There are some process' shown on that list that normally would not be there: CCleaner, rufus ... There is only one process consuming 89% CPU ... Immunet The only process causing a problem is immunet's sfc.exe. The only time this PC runs out of system resource is due to sfc.exe. I dont think your suggestion is related. Turning off ClamAV has worked around the issue, so I feel it would be more productive to focus on the root cause .
  7. Thanks for the advice. I must get back to the point that when sfc.exe IS running, it has High or Realtime priority, as indicated by the 98% CPU usage and "freezing " of other realtime tasks such as the mouse. The choice not to use CamAV module should not be based upon its making the PC unusable! Virus checking should be considered as "background" tasks, with no more than Normal priority. Thus, it seems there is a design flaw in the implementation of ClamAV in Immunet. Thu turning off ClamAV, is a useful workaround, but not the solution to this fault long term. Thanks again.
  8. I excluded Immunet's folder in Bitdefender and Bitdefender's folder in Immunet. If I exclude the temp folder both products work fine - the same as the others reported. I was hoping there would be a solution at this point. I'm using Bitdefender total security 2019 build but the same thing happens with Bitdefender free build
  9. If you read the other threads to this topic this question may be a bit redundant but... Have you created exclusion rules for the Program Files folders with both programs? Also, what build of Bitdefender are you referring to?
  10. Tested Immunet and Bitdefender combo yesterday and the problem still hasn't been fixed.
  11. I don't know if this is related but it could be, upon further examining the screenshot you provided it's evident you have a "bunch" of non-Windows processes running. You should only allow third-party programs to launch that absolutely need to be start-up programs during boot-up, like any security programs including Immunet. This can have a really positive effect on both boot-up time & system resources being used! Something you might want to look into.
  12. Yes Lemmoncury, definitely let us know if disabling ClamAV has any positive effect on system usage. Having the ClamAV module does give Immunet 'off-line' scanning capabilities and does provide an additional layer of protection. However there are some users that like to use just the ETHOS & SPERO cloud detection engines to keep system usage to a minimum, the less is more approach. Actually, it has always been recommended if Immunet is to be used as a companion AV to a compatible paid AV product to disable the ClamAV module. If Immunet is being used as a stand-alone AV solution then having ClamAV enabled is advised. So in reality It's really up to the user how much malware protection Immunet provides. This is my current setup, I use Panda Dome Pro & Immunet as a companion AV (ClamAV module disabled). Since I too use Win 7 that's why I suggested turning off ClamAV as an experiment since I wasn't seeing any excessive usage with it disabled but you apparently still are. Regards, Ritchie...
  13. Hi ghost, Immunet does have a dedicated site to report False Positives here. http://www.immunet.com/false_positive I have used WinRar in the past myself but now prefer to use 7-Zip File Manager instead. 7-Zip File Manager is totally free (unlike WinRar's free trial) and will unpack almost all popular types of compressed files including rar files just as efficiently. As the name of the software implies it does an excellent job of creating your own zip files. You can easily include a password to encrypt any 7-Zip file too! https://www.7-zip.org/download.html Cheers, Ritchie...
  14. Yes ClamAV was enabled. Isn't ClamAV a fundamental dependency for Immunet to detect the latest virus'? Ive disabled ClamAV and will check back.
  15. Earlier
  16. This was detected on an install of WinRAR. Zip.SFX
  17. I realize this thread is quite old, but this is for anyone else that ends up here. The current version of Immunet at the time of this writing stores it's history in C:\Program Files\Immunet\history.db This file is a SQLite3 database file which can be opened with any SQLite3 client with no credentials. In my case this was PowerShell using PSSQLite. This database file contains one table with the following DDL: CREATE TABLE history ( id integer, type integer, disposition integer, flags integer, created_at timestamp, file binary(32), filename varchar(255), source binary(32), sourcename varchar(255), detection varchar(255), loc varchar(255) ); If you're only interested in detected files like I was, this query should provide what you are looking for: select * from history where detection <> ''; Other database files which may be potentially useful to you are: cache.db event.db historyex.db jobs.db nfm_cache.db nfm_url_file_map.db
  18. I would venture to guess that the ClamAV module is scanning files at the same time as they're being created by Visual Studio. Try creating a custom Immunet Exclusion rule for Visual Studio's entire Program Files folder in Settings. Then turn ClamAV back on, restart your computer and see if the same behavior persists. You can also directly contact the ClamAV developers to inform them of this issue if you wish. https://www.clamav.net/contact Best wishes, Ritchie...
  19. When a program started with lots of files loaded (VS 2015), the Immunet Protect consumes lots of resources of both CPU and memory. However, if I turn off the ClamAV, it is solved. So does ClamAV have a low performance? Or it's just a bug. THX
  20. This lifewire article is a prime example of why you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet is actually factual! The person that wrote that article obviously didn't do their own journalistic investigation which is amateurish in my view! "Immunet does have off-line scanning capabilities" if the ClamAV module & updates for it are enabled. ClamAV is like a traditional AV that stores malware definition signatures on your hard drive. ETHOS & SPERO are the cloud detection engines that do require an internet connection. As you can see by the screenshot I made that I have a Scheduled Daily Flash Scan in place. So that assumption is also false. I hope this clarifies things for you. Regards, Ritchie...
  21. I read a Lifewire review of Immunet, it said that this security software will not function properly without an internet connect, is that true? Heres what they say: Doesn't always function correctly offline, and latent virus programs could be triggered when you disconnect from the internet. Doesn’t support scheduled or offline scanning.
  22. One more thing, they keep making .exe and .xml in "C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5" until your "C:\" partition is full. First time I notice it is when the "C:\" drive is full, there's like 30+GB of .exe and .xml in that folder.
  23. Yeah LOL, the one in that "C:\Windows\Fonts\Mysql" is the hardest one to delete. But once you managed to delete the whole folder, the virus would gone for several hours. If it isn't, it will keep laying it's eggs every seconds in "C:\Windows" and "C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5"
  24. Persistence pays off more often that not! Great idea!
  25. That's all I can catch for now, I'll have to wait for them to re-appear for more files. There was doublepulsar.exe also.
  26. If you can send copy's of any executable files in that folder especially. P.S. - Since you have 10 posts, and no longer considered a newbee, you're now our newest official member to the Immunet forum community. Congrats on that!
