    I switched my av again and now 360 Total Security is running just fine plus DxO Optics Pro too. Here are my setup now.

    Trusted file list:

    This mpc_kromi is a Chrome Browser Finnish clone with better privacy.

    So very glad to have your program working.
    1: Why do you have x86_microsoft-windows-authentication in your trust list? Did you put it there manually or TS asked you and you trusted it/whitelisted it?
    2: Patches are a good thing to have, and highly recommended if you want up to date fixes/patches/security/stability/slightperformancegain... TLDR: patches are safe to use.

    After a full PC scan 360 TS asked to do all these trusted files so I did these manually.

    I'm just curious, and, nothing to worry about, but I'd like to know more about the exact file name, screenshot it's properties dialog and virustotal link of upload, when you have the time, if it's not much to ask?
    Better yet, could you upload it to cloud somewhere and send me the link?

    That is my observation as well....
    Would you be so kind and remove it from trusted list, and use your computer normally, and when/if it pops up again, to let me know under what conditions it manifested?
    Every details counts, like, during virus scan, during windows update, during startup, etc... Thank you. If you find reference to this path in the logs, do share when/if it is convenient for you.

    I would like to suggest a question and make a suggestion.

    First the question: will Portuguese be among the forthcoming new languagues? In Brazil PSafe uses Q360 core in its PSafe Total, but is not as full-featured as 360 TS, so I'm curious if 360 TS will be avilable in Portuguese, or if PSafe Total will be the only Qihoo-powered option avilable (aside from the 5 beta version of 360 IS).

    The suggestion now: why not offer automatic Bitdefender and Avira database updates once or twice a day, as it is now, and just allow the user to manually update too? Of course that would increase costs, but not as much as increasing update frequency for all users, since not everybody will be performing manual updates.

    I'm 80% certain that is part of Windows Update, most probably Microsoft Version checker or genuine validator, by the looks of it, 6.1.7601.18276 caught my eye, 'cos that is Microsoft Windows version. Program icon is kinda interesting, coming from Microsoft, that is... Still, if you see it pop up again, do note it and let me know.
    What I'm baffeled about is if that is safe, why would Qihoo ask for it to be trusted, why not trust it automatically?

    Salutations, Jaspion.
    1: Not exactly related to Portugese, but I saw few people express interest in your language on their FB page.
    2: Updates are already distributed using P2P technology, so you gain and share from/to others. Update frequency shall increase once Qihoo develop new cooperation term with Bitdefender/Avira regarding signature distribution. They are already aware of it and working. As for manual update, Settings>Check for updates.

    Qihoo, for one. They are their major security strategic partner.

    Inquiry: Does your HitmanPro/Malwarebytes/HerdProtect full system scan show up as clean?
    Are you always connected to the Internet during scans?

    Malwarebytes full scan was clean

    Yes, I am.

    PS. I have Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Free and Zemana AntiLogger Free running too, but I don't know if this Zemana is capable to protect me because of this.

    Salutations! And thanks for the info!

    However, the Check For Updates function is kind of dormant now. I never ever saw it actually find updates, although I knew there were database updates available for BD and Avira.

    OK files begining with ati are safe, as well as slm. So you're clean....
    You should let devs know about that those 2 unknown files pending upload and x86 authentication thing, just in case attach pics and send to support@360safe.com
    By sending these, you'd help in the whitelisting process, which is crucial for normal computing/operation, and helping yourself and others as well, thank you.

    Qihoo's updates are limited to 2 updates per day, it is being worked on increasing that limit to a much more effective level.
    As recommended, leave it on automatic, it will auto update both sigs [if your protection level is at Security or Custom AV/BD], and also check periodically for new version and prompt to overwrite existing installation, which means it will upgrade itself.

    Finally had time to do another IS vs TS comparison, and the most important difference between them remains, and that is the seeming inability of TS Proactive to detect the creation of auto-run routines by malware. Qihoo IS's Proactive will block such creation, the difference being having a malware orphan on reboot versus an active infection.

    It is in the plan to make TS HIPS stronger, in what areas, it is not yet known. But I do concur with your analysis.
    IS HIPS is way more chatty than TS...
