    I think that we have a false positive as when I logged on this evening HMP.A immediately started to issue messages stating that it had stopped malware, specifically GEN.VARIANT.MIKEY 80871 related to the executable WRSA.EXE.

    Well, I think that it is safe to say that Webroot Secure Anywhere is NOT malware...so to whom do I report this and how as I have had to uninstall; HMP.A as it would not let WRSA start. LOL

    Thanks, @anonskii.
    Do you have any kind of application launcher, as RonnyT asked?
    In case HMPA automatically protects that application launcher, Comodo Programs Manager and Revo Uninstaller would inherit the protections and that would cause the behavior that you reported.
    The question is now, do you have any kind of application launcher, and is it automatically protected by HMPA?
    In case you are not sure what an application launcher is and whether you have one on your system, please do a web search for: application launcher.

    You can report here.
    If you could add the full alert details, then Erik, Mark, or RonnyT can have a look at it.
    You can get alert details from Event Viewer:
    Open the HMPA user interface.
    If the HMPA user interface shows 1 or more alerts, clicking "Number of alerts" or "Last alert" in the HMPA user interface will open Windows Event Viewer and a "HitmanPro.Alert Events" module will be added to Windows Event Viewer. Be patient, as this takes a moment.
    As soon as the "HitmanPro.Alert Events" module is added to Event Viewer, opening that entry should show HMPA events.
    Take the entry regarding the specific alert.
    Select all text, use Ctrl+C to copy the selected text, and then you can paste the copied details in a reply in the thread.

    I overlooked the fact that you uninstalled HMPA.
    If you uninstalled HMPA, you cannot use the option that I mentioned, obviously.
    Instead, you can open Windows Event Viewer and look for HitmanPro.Alert Events.
    Copying and pasting the HMPA event information is still the same as I mentioned.

    Also, if what you reported was a HMPA Anti-Malware detection, I suppose there should be no need to uninstall HMPA, as disabling only the HMPA Anti-Malware component should probably be sufficient to stop the reported Anti-Malware detection.

    Turn off the SAM protection in the creditguard protection. It should be defaulted off but apparently has been turned on

    There is still no option to whitelist in HMPA Anti-Malware, but we can mark something as safe in HMP.
    What is the consequence of marking a HMPA Anti-Malware detection as safe in HMP?
    Does that stop the HMPA Anti-Malware detection for that item?
    Has anyone ever tested that, before?

    there is a problem with hmpa alert - which i just added - it does not like mozilla browser add ons - so far hmpa has made pale moon extensions not
    work, and now firefox - i do not even want to start up cyberfox or waterfox - most add ons do work, some do not - i would say nintey five percent work - but one i really like that hmpa stops from operation is one tab - i do not like having a lot of tabs open - and when using one tab it brings memory usage down quite a bit - i will only use mozilla browsers with one tab - i will try a mozilla browser install in safe mode, and test all the add on functions - and then restart computer and see what happens - already uninstalled pale moon - now have to uninstall firefox
    also hmpa gives an intruder alert every time i start a mozilla browser - screen shot posted
    if hmpa blocks add ons - will have to uninstall it

    update - have just looked through previous wilders hitman pro alert pages about intruder alerts and add ons - and it seems some add ons are just not liked by hmpa

    update 2 - does not matter if i disable exploit mitigation and safe browsing for specific mozilla browser - hmpa still will not let certain add ons install/work

    update 3 - have installed pale moon with just the one tab add on - hmpa has let the browser be insofar to this extent

    update 4 - pale moon and the extensions are still working with hmpa - I haven't added every add on - going to add each one at a time and restart the browser to check if pale moon goes from the green line browser surrounding box of safe browsing - to the red line browser surrounding box of intruder alert - in interest is that it was not the add on one tab that hmpa did not like - but a different one - that still made hmpa remove one tab even though another browser extension was considered an intruder

    High likely a conflict with other currently running security applications:

    After not having used HitmanPro.Alert since the incompatibility with Sandboxie issue began after a previous Alert update quite some time ago, I just thought I might at least utilize its keyboard encryption option. So I installed it again, and now I see the orange popup with "Encrypting KPO9VO41A" (and that code changing while I type) appearing in the right bottom corner of my screen.

    Then I wanted to see what other options I could utilize without issues with Sandboxie. Turns out I can have every option enabled, except that for the 3 browsers I have -Chrome, Epic and IE11- which appear below the large blue "Exploit mitigation" block in "Advanced interface" mode have all individual Code and Memory Mitigation boxes unchecked. While general "Exploit mitigation" is checked, reason that big block is blue instead of gray.

    Unfortunately Version HPA is much more slowing at Widows 10 64bit pro (version: 1709, build: 16299.402) than at Windows 7 64 bit pro. Despite the fact that my Windows 10 computer much more modern and faster. In Windows 10, HPA is therefore virtually useless, because very slow down the system, computer performance.

    Hardware of my Windows 10 64bit pro: Intel® Core ™ i5-8400, Samsung 960 EVO 512GB M2 PCIe MZ-V6E500BW system SSD, 16GB DDR4 RAM Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2400MHz CMK16GX4M2A2400C14, Motherboard: ASRock Z370 Extreme4, Hard Drive: 2 × 6TB (WD Red 6TB 5400rpm 64MB SATA3 WD60EFRX.

    Under a bushel ...
    I use Sandboxie and HMPA without issues (everything ticked except CTP SAM), and have Chrome installed (though I don't really use it), and all Code and Memory boxes are checked ...
    Don't have W7 to compare but no apparent performance issues here with same W10 build.

    Thank you.

    What is CTP SAM?

    I'm using Windows 8.1 with StartIsBack. I like it much better than Windows 10.

    That is Risk reduction\ Credential Theft Protection\ Security Account Manager (SAM).
    (In Dutch: Risicoverkleining\ Bescherming van aanmeldgegevens\ Beveiligingsaccountbeheer (SAM).)
    By default, SAM is disabled.

    Bedankt. :)
    But to continue in the forum language, I can have CTP and SAM enabled, but not Code Mitigations and Memory Mitigations. This is so for my Chrome, Epic and IE11. Everything else I can have enabled.
    I'm glad to be able to utilize my Alert again, be it without those mitigations. And by default surfing in Sandboxie and also having Emsisoft Anti-Malware and MBAM, I already didn't really feeling unprotected. Besides now and then with those two, sporadically I also do a scan with the free herdProtect, but no malware has been found over the last years.

    Could it be that other running security applications interfere with HMPA? Some users use a whole bunch of security applications, of which some combinations may interfere.
    What other security applications do you use?
    Other forum members may be able to tell you whether or not your combination of security applications may interfere with HMPA.
    (N.B. This is why some forum members mention security applications and/or settings in the signature.)

    Besides Sandboxie, I also use EAM. I also have MBAM installed, but not set to start with Windows (so on demand only). Btw I have portable herdProtect also (this has not been updated for ages as it I believe it was rolled into Reason Core Security), but do not use it.

    But I do not have @LodeHere's issues with HMPA. Could be another security application, or maybe some Windows Defender setting?

    The only other security application I use is AdGuard. It sometimes blocks opening sites that I did not ask to go to. Like suddenly a live chat or dating site wants to open after clicking to see a clip on a porn site, but then AdGuard blocks it, which I like. Also MBAM blocks sites sometimes.
    Besides that I use AdMuncher. Nothing else in the "protection" department.
    About not letting MBAM start with Windows:
    • Start Malwarebytes at Windows startup: If this setting is off, Malwarebytes will not start with Windows. No real-time protection layers will start when Windows starts, though they may still be started manually by launching Malwarebytes.
    I just set MBAM to not start up with Windows, and enabled the Mitigations in Alert for Chrome. But then opening Chrome gave the same Sandboxie error message again. (SBIE 2203) So I let MBAM start up with Windows again, and disabled Mitigations for Chrome once more.

    It's no biggie for me. I feel well protected. Just was curious if a solution had been found, or an Alert update had solved the issue. But thank you much for your kind responses. :)

    Maybe you can ask on Sandboxie thread, or do a search for that message there. Perhaps you can enable the Alert mitigations for Chrome and ignore / hide that SBIE message ...

    Recently I've uninstalled Zemana AntiLogger (And manually removed the KeyCrypt .dll files and disabled left over services and autostart entries) and enabled the Keystroke Encryption in HMPA. It has been working fine except sometimes when typing something in the windows menu search bar it'll just get garbled. For example "Chrome" can turn into "nxysyj" as it did just now. I've only been able to replicate this with Keystroke Encryption in HMPA running, but it doesn't replicate 100% of the time.
