This update will require an application restart.

  • New: Forensic log: a condensed timeline that shows all events and user actions in an easy to read form.
  • New: Auto-resolve mode for behavior blocker alerts: an option that makes all decisions on its own.
  • Improved: Program startup and updater performance.
  • Improved: Several minor tweaks and fixes.
  • Fixed: Issue that showed the scanner result window in scheduled scans even if silent mode was enabled.

Right on @mekelek, that big yellow bar part in the tests sure bothered them. :p

I think updater performance and doing away with the friggin' report window are my personal presents. I run EAM/EIS on several notebooks that I don't use every day and every time it takes literally ages to go through updates. Also, having that window pop up after every silent scan was very annoying. I chose the silent option for a reason, mind you.

i guess they got fed up with people crying about the BB asking questions so they put in an auto option hahaha
Some people will still complain "Emsisoft is auto-quarantining safe files ! I cannot or will not allow the file in the toaster alert. I cannot make decisions."

that log seems neat, how detailed is it tho?
To the point. Just the essentials.

Assume you have yours set to Alert for everything correct? Just curious as I am currently trialing EIS.

I just use auto-resolve. In the auto-resolve toaster (fly-out) alert the user can Allow (= creates a permanent Allow Always rule).

If you want the ability to Allow\Block Once then set the BB to Alert.

Either way, the user is still going to have to make decisions for safe files that are unknown or have a small Emsi user community reputation rating in AMN that trigger a BB alert.

This is for the new beta correct? I am on the production version and not seeing these options. I have mine set to Block and Alert. Just starting testing EIS two days ago so it's all new to me.

Behavior Blocker pane at bottom. Production has 4 options. New beta has 2 options.

Got it. Thanks for hitting me back. I think beta usually goes to Production version rather quickly with Emsisoft correct?
Yes. Their beta builds are usually uneventful in terms of serious issues. In other words, they are basically stable. Minor glitches now and then. Once in a great while something serious. At least in my own personal experience with the product.

It is very easy to rollback to stable build from beta build. Just change it in the Settings > Updates and Emsi will rollback.

Did not know that. Thanks for the tip!

EDIT: Updated to the beta. So far so good.
