    You are using EEK.

    EAM still has the setting.

    Yep, I was walking about EEK. EEK, also had this option until I updated today. Not a big deal, but a little surprised to see it removed.

    EAM new build is 11640 now.
    Couple of changes. As @B-boy/StyLe/ noticed above in EEK, the same scan options have also been removed in EAM under custom scanner settings.

    Also just before shutting down my machine at night I have always deleted the previous day's logs under C\ProgramData\Emsisoft\logs
    You cannot do that anymore now unless you either close down all EAM protection, or boot into safe mode as they say EAM is now protecting them.
    Not keen on this change at all as I should be able to delete logs from my own machine.

    Are they also un-deletable if one uses, say, an Admin auth command prompt to issue a delete command, or a scheduled task under Admin auth to move the logs somewhere else?
    If that doesn't work it seems odd; I mean, with Admin auth one can uninstall EAM. As someone who runs with debug logging on permanently (but stopped and restarted "for 7 days" every night) I don't welcome this...

    Presumably any (corporate?) user concerned about logs to that extent would be running with a locked configuration. But just as anyone who knows that password can alter a config, one wonders why the logs folder could not be unlocked that way.

    @JNicoll23
    Things seem to be much more business focused now in EAM. I am just a single user and do not want to jump over hurdles to delete files on my machine.
    Also the new a2core file introduced with this change means machine takes longer to shut down and to reach full desktop at boot.
    Disappointed with the change even if EAM performance is still good.

    It seems that EAM now protects log files also. You can try deleting log entries from within EAM or by temporarily disabling self-protection.
    I was thinking about giving it another try but I will pass it for a while if new problems were introduced by update.

    Thanks. Not too worried for the moment. I'm sure there is a delay.

    It is indeed. It didn't like the address used by Proton VPN.
