Yes, but not the other way around.
Since the latest Alert3 update the other day there is an issue with Sandboxie on my laptop. Alert3 fags it and the option to do a scan appears, as well as a Sandboxie panel with an error warning.
Correction: "Alert3 flags it..."
I see no option to edit my above post.
Thank you, and I hope you are correct, because I just purchased the HitmanPro.Alert 3 PC's - 3 Year, and what the invoice does not say is that it includes HitmanPro.
The invoice from from a Black Friday purchase two years ago said,
HitmanPro Black Friday 2015 - 3 PC - 2 Year
This license works on HitmanPro.Alert and HitmanPro.
PS - I won't be activating this license until the current one expires in March of 2018.
While that's a huge amount of responsibility you have bestowed upon me, @Page42 I'll choose not to except it.
Well what did you base your answer on when you said that?
When you said HitmanPro.Alert included HitmanPro.
Says Alert includes Hitman Pro
I'm confused about the issue of compatibility between HMPA and Sandboxie and checking through past posts I can't find an answer. I'm using build 723 and suffer from no alerts or issues using Chrome in Sandboxie. No mitigations are disabled. However, I also have Hitman Pro Alert compatibility selected in Sandboxie, which might be the reason why I'm not seeing any alerts. Have I taken the wrong approach? What does selecting HMPA compatibility in Sandboxie do to the overall security?
If you want to run Chrome (or Edge, Firefox, ...) within Sandboxie, disable "Local Privilege Mitigation":
Go to Risk Reduction and then Process Protection. Uncheck Local Privilege
After a couple of quiet days running HMPA 3.7.1 build 723 with SAM disabled, I finally decided to activate SAM yesterday.
I was able to run Macrium scheduled backups, as well as a program called FreeFileSync, without any conflicts from HMPA.
But today when Windows kicked off a scheduled task that creates regular system protection points, I got a CredGuard Mitigation. If I try to kick off the scheduled task manually, I get this mitigation every time. But if I open system protection and create a manual restore point, that works fine.
Is HMPA's Credential Theft Protection the same as Zemana's Identity Theft Protection? If they are then do I need to disable one if I have both HMPA and Zemana on my system, right? Which to disable then?
"Credential Theft Protection
Preventing theft of authentication passwords and hash information from memory, registry and disk. Prevents Mimikatz-style attacks."
Still getting failures with scanning. Anyone else?
Just did a scan from HMPA (3.7.1 723) and scan completed.
Hmm. What are you using for DNS?
Norton ConnectSafe DNS.
@erikloman and @markloman
The launch of Hitman Pro (in HitmanPro.Alert v3.7.1 build 723) is now 2 mouse clicks, with the previous versions having 1 click. Please reset the 1 click launch. Thanks!
I have not found any other problem (Windows 7 Pro 64bit).
Scanning here from 3.7.1 723 just fine.
That appears to be a result of a change to the 'Advanced' interface, where the scan button has been moved inside of the new 'Anti-Malware' button. The one-click scan button is still available in the 'Standard' interface.
Could the difference be explained by a situation in which G1111 and Tinstaafl have both HMPA and also the HMP application installed, and Trooper only HMPA and not the HMP application?
In other words, do G1111 and Tinstaafl have both HMPA and HMP installed, and Trooper only HMPA?
HMP installed here...
Yes both HMPA and HMP are installed on my system.
