  1. 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.
  2. Glad I could be of assistance Liangyu.L and thanks for the additional Like! Cheers, Ritchie...
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. Persistence pays off more often that not! Great idea!
  10. 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!
  11. The same email address in the older thread I posted to this topic. submit@samples.immunet.com Use the same compression/encryption method I previously mentioned in the other thread.
  12. Oh no! Is it possible that you could submit any new samples regarding that Mysql folder?
  13. The Immunet team would like to wish a happy & safe 4th of July holiday to all forum members & guests alike! "Happy Fourth everyone!" In my home town they normally shoot off the fireworks on the 3rd. That gives the folks the opportunity to view the other displays in neighboring communities without having to compete with that.
  14. Congratulations HexaPro! I hope I didn't just jinx you by my accolade though, lol! That's what it takes sometimes, never give up & just keep digging at it until a proper solution is accomplished! Since you are using a server environment I would still recommend you consider deploying AMP for Endpoints for your security needs instead of Immunet.
  15. I would also consider that unacceptable myself if Immunet was hogging up 89% of CPU cycles and over 314 megs of RAM on a continual basis for no seemingly apparent reason! Do you have the ClamAV module enabled at this time? We encountered some excessive system usage with the module not long ago. If you do, try disabling the ClamAV module and updates for it temporarily as a bit of an experiment to see if that has any positive effects.
