  1. That's something we don't normally advocate is a user mucking about with the registry keys. If you delete the wrong registry entries that can definitely have undesirable consequences, not only for Immunet but perhaps for your OS as well. Your idea of a comprehensive removal tool for Immunet has merit in my opinion, just in case something goes wrong with the normal uninstall procedure.
  2. Hello Sidecar, Is there anything different with the one rig that's experiencing this excessive disk I/O? Any software programs that are not installed on your other machines? If so, what are they?
  3. What Operating System & what version of Immunet are you currently using? I just checked my copy of Immunet and it shows about 52 megs of RAM being used at the moment. Of course when Immunet is looking for updates or if you're running a scan that will cause the RAM usage to increase, that's to be expected. The increase should be temporary. I have nothing to do with the Twitter account so I can't comment on that but "this site" has been updated. We now use the more secure HTTPS encryption protocols and the main theme for the site has also been changed from the older theme.
  4. Hi Andrew, Unfortunately there has been a report of this recurring 503 server error occurring after updating to the new build. That's a bit disconcerting. https://support.immunet.com/topic/5975-cannot-connect-to-update-servers-error-503/?tab=comments#comment-18452 That's something that needs to be looked into ASAP in my opinion!
  5. Can you tell us what software this file is associated with and provide a screenshot of the malware detection you're seeing. Open the UI -> click on the word Quarantine located just below and to the right of the History tab -> find the file in question in the right side Details dialog box and click on that. Then make a screenshot of that data so we have a better idea of what's going on. If it's a legit program it might be just a simple matter of adding a custom Exclusion rule but let's see if this temp file is associated with a malicious program first. I checked with the folks at VirusTotal and they don't seem to have any data on this file. Either that's a good thing since it hasn't been reported as malicious, or it's some kind of malware that hasn't been seen yet which wouldn't be a good thing.
  6. Ok, this is something the devs will definetly need to look into ASAP.
  7. Hi Aris, There is a new build available. Have you updated to the new 7.0 version yet? https://download.immunet.com/binaries/immunet/bin/ImmunetSetup.exe We haven't (so far) received any reports of this 503 error with the new build unless you already updated. Regards, Ritchie...
  8. I did ask for a list of included bug fixes for the 7.0 version since I was pretty curious about that but sorry to hear this new build doesn't seem to address your continuing issue Jack. That's a bummer! I'm sure you find that rather disappointing! May I suggest you contact the admin. Rob. Turner via Private Message and perhaps inform him this issue still goes unresolved for you.

  9. Thanks for the new input Andrew, much appreciated! I was assuming these new security protocols would be handled internally but just wanted to make sure on that since I wasn't seeing any new processes. Yeah, that would be very cool if you could provide the list of bug fixes included with this new build. Cheers, Ritchie...
  10. Nice touch! The update to version went very smoothly for me compared to the 6.5.0 beta where I had to reboot several times to completely install the build. I do have a question or two. I don't see any new running processes for Credo or AMSI, are these new additions all handled internally without the need for a dedicated Windows process? As before, I've always advocated for a complete change log be included with any new build that is publicly released. Has there been any bug fixes included with this version? One quick observation is that there is definitely more activity with the sys tray's icon gif being activated. Best wishes, Ritchie...
  11. The quarantined file directory really shouldn't be manipulated in any way. That could cause undesirable consequences!
  12. Hello ebloch, Actually it has always been recommended that you create a exception/exclusion/allow rule for Immunet's "entire Program Files folder" with any compatible security software you run along side of Immunet. Doing this will, of course, also keep the quarantine files from being scanned by your other programs. Also, you should create an Exclusion rule with Immunet for the entire Program Files folder for AdAware, Windows Defender is excluded by default. Adding these exclusion rules to all the programs involved can really help to avoid any current or future conflicts! Cheers, Ritchie...
  13. Personally speaking that's one of the first things I would have done anyway, close any running programs before updating Immunet to a new version. The update didn't start automatically, for me I had to start the update to version 7.0 manually through the UI so that does give you the opportunity to close any active programs first.
  14. You did post this thread in a rather old topic. I don't see how updating your flash player could have affected your printer. I never heard of such a thing. Have you tried to uninstall & reinstall the drivers again with the install CD that came with the printer?
  15. If you're confident it's not corrupted history files or a connectivity issue I would encourage anyone who's experiencing this scan history anomaly to log in and contact the admin. Rob. Turner via Private Message at Rob's Profile page as he works directly with the devs. Just click on the Message button to send him a PM & include all pertinent data pertaining to your issue . https://support.immunet.com/profile/1703-robturner/
