    By nag screen i meant the green halo around firefox popping out every few minutes telling me that I am protected. Very annoying. It took me few minutes but I finally figured out how to turn it off. I decided to keep my trial for 30 days and see how it works.

    That isn't a "nag" screen

    Yeah I figured that one out. It did feel like a nag screen. Good thing is that there was option to turn if off.

    Hi there.
    I have an issue with the CamGuard/ Webcam Notifier: I use Streaming-Software like OBS where I use a Webcam to film myself. Here the Cam works.

    I used a fork of OBS, called Streamlabs OBS (or SLOBS, see: https://streamlabs.com/streamlabs-obs) and here the Webcam doesn't work when the Webcam Notifier in HMPA is on. When I deactivate it, it works. I can't remember that I have blocked the program to access the Cam.
    Is there a possibility to see the blocked programs so I can check that before filing a bug report?

    Build 737 issues:

    windows 1709 16299.251 i7-8550U 16.gb ram, running alongside EAM

    Slowing OS down. Just uninstalled the previous build due to this slowdown issue. It takes app 12 seconds for windows edge to load.
    Also I find typing a lag after a few letters. Once I uninstall, no problem. If I disable keystroke there is no change.
    *** Tried on alternate laptop - same scenario

    I haven't tried the new release version, yet (nor 734 beta).
    Is the 734 beta issue of Credential Theft Protection interfering with several anti-virus products when reading LSASS process memory solved in build 737?

    Build 729 shows no update on right-click check at tray icon. Is this to be expected until update is spread around for a while following release? Thanks. I'll install over the top of 729 in the meantime. Will the update ever be possible more promptly via this checking method?

    Edit: This probably answers most of my query:
    Thanks Mark.

    Yes, when the update is offered for automatic updating, at a later moment, the update will be available via "Check for update" at the tray icon.

    I may give this a try soon in VM to see what's changed since I tried it last. It's been about a year since I tried it.

    Hi,

    Could you please DM me your setup details, if both machines are hardware different it could possibly be related to your preferred software config as both share the same performance degradation.

    With this release version, HMP.A is still generating a ROP mitigation for Glasswire, as I reported here in the beta thread. As a work-around, I disabled the Control-Flow Integrity mitigation.

    Otherwise, I have not experienced any issues.

    Aha thanks!

    I had not added Glasswire, it does not show under 'Running applications'.

    I cannot see now how to manually add an application (remind me?), and what template did you add it as?

    Edit: I can see how to add an exclusion, but not an application ...

    In its normal state, Glasswire will be running, but minimized to the notification area of the taskbar
    Double click its icon so that the Glasswire app pops up
    Open the HMP.A window: Exploit mitigation > Running applications > Glasswire (under Not Protected) > Choose Template (I chose Other)

    I plugged in my USB drive, to let VEEAM Agent backup the C:\ drive of my office machine.
    With Security Account Manager (SAM) enabled, I got a warning from HMPA, that Windows Defender was blocked...

    Mark, does build 737 resolve the issues described for Vista in this post?

    I am still on build 604 on that PC.

    Thank you.
