BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

Q: BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

My email client, desktop program PostBox (for Win) has been slowed since I installed BD TS2016 (I'm quite sure this is the reason as it was very fast before, and slowed immediately after...)

I also run WebRoot AV (which does not scan email as per their documentation) and HitmanAlertPro (which could also be affecting my email client, but I uninstalled it to test this somewhat small chance given its just an anti-exploit, and it doesn't seem to have affected it, the client is still slow).

1. I would LIKE BD to scan my email as of course having AV w/o scanning email could in many ways be pointless given email can be a deadly vector for heavy malware.

2. But I don't want my client to be slow. It's not horrible, and I suppose I could tolerate it (basically deleting messages, loading new messages, and the program responsiveness overall, is a bit sluggish compared with its normal instantaneous response)

3. Is there a way to configure email scanning differently? Or should the program NOT be slowing my client noticeably in general, and is this behavior indicative of something being wrong?

I'm sure BD users will be able to comment on whether it slows their email or not given they use a desktop client like Outlook, Postbox, Thunderbird, etc.

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: BitDefender Email Scanning Mechanism? Performance Issues w/ email Client

In the past I used BD TS exclusively with OutLook as my e-mail client and had no such issues, have you tried, or open to try switching clients to see if it's something about Postbox that BD TS disagrees with ?
do let us know what you discover either way.
Thanks for sharing

Hello. I have Windows XP with AVG Free Edition installed. I have a router with a firewall and the Windows firewall. I do some P2P file downloads but am at least careful to check what file types I'm downloading (no exes or zips, etc). My computer is slow and sometimes hangs in explorer tasks (taskbar, system tray, windows explorer) but that may or may not be related.I wasn't that worried until my internet started to get WAAAY slow (6Mps/sec where it used to be 56) and then my AVG email scanner started telling me it was scanning something from (or to????) ######-customer.lyse.net. I have Outlook express installed but have never configured it. I use only web-based mail applications. Is it possible that something is running from or via my computer involving some kind of email trigger? I really don't know very much about this.... so I'm sorry if I've missed some obvious stuff.I scanned with Spybot S&D and a full AVG scan in safe mode. They came up with nothing except that kernel32.dll, user32.dll, shell32.dll and ntoskrnl.exe have a status of "change".... then I ran hijackthis (here's my log):Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 3:41:42 PM, on 03/09/2007Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsa...

I am still using the Acer Aspire 1200 that is registered on my account. Windows Vista Business SP2, Athalon Dual Core 4400 + (2 CPU's) 2.3GHz, On 11/29 I ran DXDIAG if you need that I will send it.
Approximately, 11/22/2014 was the last time I had Windows mail on my computer. I did not check it on 11/23 so the first I noticed it was gone was 11/24. Over the same weekend I tried to run a virus scan using AVG free 2014 which I have never had a problem with in the past. It kept freezing my whole computer when it hit 60% and would be at C:Windows.old\Windows\System 32\ then various letters/numbers such as nvcod.dll, nvd3dum.dll, nvdisps.dll
About that time I had installed the AVG Secure Search so I wondered if it could have been that but I think I may have finally removed it but I am not sure.
On 11/24 I contacted AVG support and chatted. They sent me an email and asked me to run the AVG Virus Removal tool. I tried but after many hours of it scanning I ended up with a box that said "Failed to install the remover driver (Error code 0xC0000022)"
Microsoft word frequently shuts down and sometimes recovers the file and sometimes not.
Also get high CPU message frequently.
AVG wasn?t really able to help they think it?s an operating system problem, so I wondered what you might be able to do for me.

A:Windows email disappeared, AVG Free 2014 stops scanning at 60% and more issues

This sounds like you are infected with a virus that AVG cannot find or remove. We suggest you click on the link in my signature for Virus/Malware Help. Do these things in Safe Mode and create a new thread in that section of the forum and post those files there and not here, please.
When you update your computer from an older version of Windows to a newer version, or you reinstall, it creates a folder on the C: drive called C:\Windows.old. Your old Windows and all of it's programs and your user files are in this folder. This gives you enough time to recover any files you want such as pictures, music etc, and save them to your User profile on the New Windows. You also can look and reinstall any programs you wish if you have the download or install CD. Once you are safely restored and you have tested your files, and Programs, you can safely Delete the C:\Windows.old folder, then Empty the Recycle bin. This will restore a lot of disk space, also it looks like some files are infected in this folder.
Once you have Deleted C:\Windows.old, and Emptied the Recycle bin, While waiting for the Security team to respond, download Junkware Removal Tool. Run it, A DOS window appears. Press any key. It will start scanning automatically.

Hello, I always use web-based email via the browser at home. I do not use an email client(well in the office we have Outlook). I'd like to use Thunderbird at home with a Gmail account that can be used by the kids. Now I am using Avira IS 2012 and would like to make it scan emails through it's mailguard component. I have seen Thunderbird work with Avast IS on my brother's pc but I see that for it to scan all emails the SSL/TSL should be deactivated. I was asking the tech guys at the office about email clients, digital certificates etc and they only remarked "google it"...wow... So I came here....Now my questiosn are: a. Is it safe to disable SSL/TSL in an email client? In the office we have that(with Norton Enterprise) and I see an indicator at the bottom of the email message that it was scanned by Norton. b. Can there be an application that can allow me to have SSL/TSL at the same time have Avira scan my emails...? I searched google and found out that in Avira it also has to be disabled to let it scan all emails. c. SSL/TSL is encryption right..? Does not using encryption in email okay..? I mean at home. In the office it's important but at home...opinions please..d. What ports for POP3 IMAP SMTP should I allow Thunderbird to use In the firewall( I use Comodo). If Thunderbird wants connections via other ports other than the default ones...should I allow it or not..?e. Can an email client be run inside a sandbox? Is it sane enough or crazy..? Just...

A:Thunderbrid email client, Comodo Email Certificates, Avira IS 2012 questions

I would highly recommend that you keep TLS/SSL enabled this makes sure that your password and user credentials are not sent in the clear.

if the AV needs to have this disabled then its not a good AV..

The ports are on the setup page for Gmail: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_Gmail_with_Thunderbird_and_Mozilla_Suite

Digital Certs are expensive to create and use, and only vital for businesses and not home users.

Here is the problem: I have my email client (PocoMail) set as my default email client. It shows up as default client in the "Default Program section" in IE7.
When I click on a email link, whether it's in another program or on a website, my email client doesn't open the compose window with the address entered BUT IE7 starts and opens about 80 windows which need to be killed with Task Manager. By the way, this has nothing to do with PocoMail because it also happens when Thunderbird is set as default.

I am stumped. Any ideas?

My Email client, MSN Premium (not Hotmail) will not open to write an email when clicking on any website's button labeled "send us an email". Instead this action causes several instances (up to 5) of IE6 to invoke and then the Op Sys (WinME) hangs until I use Ctrl-Alt-Del to end the erroneously opened IE tasks. I thought maybe it was that MSN mail was not my default email client so I used the proceedure to make MSN mail my default instead of OE6 but each time I returned to the options to see if it had changed it still says my default client is OE. Interestingly, if I envoke the MSN explorer and go to my MSN email inbox I can send and receive my email perfectly. This machine has been up and running since last October. I do not know if the problem has always existed or started more recently since I don't often click on "send us email" buttons.
I have three other machines similarly set up and none of them exhibit this problem.

Specifically if using the portable form of Opera Mail, the mail client available from portableapps.com.
 
I tried looking at many articles from internet searches but found nothing telling where to find the folder holding the email messages for the email client.  My copy of portable Opera Mail is on a usb flash drive.  I have tried looking through the folders for the application but still do not know how to recognize any email messages.  

A:Where on desktop is email for email client?

 
portableapps.com.

You do understand that downloading apps like this from most 3rd party sites poses all sorts of security risks, Remember this, That software while it was made by WhoEver has now been modified by somebody, How was it modified, Who did it, What else did they put in it? I may be wrong here however I also think may be against most software developers TOS to use modified software like this.
 
 
FYI only.
While Opera is free some sites and some people have used " the making of a app portable" on paid for software to bypass  having to pay for the software. I used to do just that a long time ago. I now know and understand why it is bad.
 
Eg.
Making XXXXbytes premium into a portable application. While creating the portable you use a genuine key or "other" methods to activate Then compile it as portable with the activation in place, Now anybody with XXXXbytes portable has a free premium copy instead. That's software piracy. And Theft.

Hello, I'm planning to get an AV and so am checking up on various features of different AV's and so was wondering, does Bitdefender Antivirus have a file reputation mechanism, something akin to Kasperky's Application advisor? And if so, what are the odds of a file compiled by me being detected as a false positive? Like, how robust are those systems anyway? Because it seems like a big feature which some AV's proudly present, but I mean, if all it does is tell you that a file is "rare - therefore suspicious" it seems likely to be extremely prone to false positives, is that the case?

Also, if you could direct me to any documents that elaborate on that, that'd be grand.

Many thanks =)

Hi, I'm having a problem with my email. I was clearing out my folders and notice an email in my junk file sent from myself to myself. Same email to and from.

AVG free antivirus normally scans all in/out email messages and places a "virus free" msg text in the incoming ones after scanning them.

I have migrated to a brand new Compaq Presario SR5250NX with vista home premium and am running the latest versions of AVG free and Mozilla Thunderbird.

During email download via Thunderbird on my old win XP system, AVG placed a little progress pop up on the screen and placed the "virus free" text at the end of each incoming message.

On the new vista system, the little popup never shows nor do the "virus free" texts.

The AVG control panel states the "Email Scanner is fully functional" and the properties mentions a plugin/extension of AVG FREE ADDITION MS OUTLOOK EXTENSION being installed.

In the vista properties, Thunderbird is assigned all of the email duties.

It is as if Avg Free doesn't recognize the presence of Thunderbird on the machine.

Is anybody successfully getting Avg free to scan Thunderbird on Vista?
 

A:AVG AV not scanning email on Vista w/Thunderbird

I use AVG Internet Security rather than the free version, but IIRC you need to select an email 'profile' when you install AVG. (I'm sure you can add it later, too-and I'm not sure it's called a 'profile' but I remember that there were several choices, one being Outlook & another called 'Personal' or something like that. Wish I had AVG on this machine to check.)

For Thunderbird, you need to activate the 'Personal' email scanner profile in AVG. Also, make sure T-Bird is set to cooperate with AV programs. I forget where that setting is (don't have T-Bird on this PC either) but it tells T-Bird to store each message in a separate temp file so it can be scanned before adding it to the Inbox. Note that this doesn't affect the email scanner, it just prevents your entire Inbox from being quarantined if something should slip past the email scanner & later be recognized by the real-time scanner.

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

That's it.

After upgrading to the AVG 8.0 paid version, incoming email scanning was clearly not working with Mozilla Thunderbird. This is despite the fact that the AVG security centre said that it was.

A trawl of internet forums led to what seems like the solution. I re-ran the initial AVG 8.0 downloaded installation file. This came up with a dialogue box where "Add or Remove Components" was an option. Having selected this, the next box contained a number of ticked options plus an unticked "Personal email scanner". I ticked this (leaving all other ticks as they were) and let the installation continue. Following a 'successful installation' message, the email scanner now seems to be working okay.

This operation installs a file called avgemc.exe which appears to be the key element. It also provides additional email options within AVG advanced options. I did not have to play with these for Thunderbird, but it appears that may be necessary for some other email programs.

I think it this is an unsatisfactory situation on a number of levels. Firstly AVG should not tell us that email scanning is working when if fact it is not. Secondly they should make installation of this file etc automatic because not everyone used Microsoft email facilities, even if they are the default on the PC. Thirdly, if for some reason this is not viable then AVG should publicise the possible need to install this component clearly and prominently in the upgrade instructions. Finally there sh...

Although I've always had the option to use my ISP email account and Outlook Express to read it, I've always loved Hotmail and that's what I've been using for about six years. I'm sure you guys know what Hotmail's up to lately, pulling tricks...deleting mail, taking forever to deliver...you know the drill, to make us want to pay for better service and storage space. Plus I've always wanted to be able to send larger attachments. So I've recently opened my ISP account and am using Outlook Express 6.

I know some things about OE virus-prevention, such as disabling the preview pane, and I have NAV set to scan incoming/outgoing email. I can't tell, though, if Norton is actually doing that, because there's no progress bar (as there is on the outgoing scan), and the tray icon is always there anyway. Anyway, I'd like to know how I should set Norton to respond if a virus is found. Right now, it's set to "Automatically repair the infected file (recommended)". The other options seem more aggressive (quarantine, delete, etc.) and I want to have the best defense. What setting should I put Norton on? Do I want it doing ANYTHING "silently"? ...And is there any way to tell for sure that Norton is actually DOING anything?!

Also, I was reading a post from July, someone said he'd turned off the command to "Send Messages Immediately", to protect people in his address book, and I've done that as w... Read more

Quick question,
I was tinkering in Group Policy and noticed in Defender the option to have Defender scan emails.
I use Outlook so I enabled it.
I had no idea this was even an option with defender and MS does not make it obvious, that got me thinking that maybe MS thinks this should be off.
I am interested in the communities thoughts on this.
Should I turn it back off like I found it or leave it on.
Have any of you used this feature, and if so what was your experience ?
As always thanks for your input.

If you use outlook, I can't imagine there being any harm in using it. If anything, it might work better with outlook than it would any email company external of Microsoft services.

Am using Netscape 7.2 right now. Understand the latest version is over blotted with a clumsy UI (haven't even looked at it yet). When emailing a file from another application, such as Word or Adobe, Netscape opens but the authoring program crashes. So, I am looking for another email client.

Have used Opera Mail from within the browser, Incredimail, ExpressPlus (which integrates with my PIM - Time & Chaos), Courier Mail, etc. What is the best email client that you have used, are you still using it, and how long have you used it?

I was just curious what the email client of choice is with Win7 since it does not come with one. I am leaning toward Thunderbird. I have to have the ability to have two email addresses. From my understanding if you use Windows Live Mail, you must actually go into the Control Panel and change users. That is alot of trouble. Does anyone know of another email client other than Thunderbird that allows two users like Outlook Express did?

Thinking about getting away from using webmail, and getting a webmail client. I use W7 Ult. I am not looking to pay for anything; I understand MS Outlook has a free vers. So, I go to the outlook page, but it's asking me to sign up. That kinda threw me. Sign up - for what? Create an acct? That type of thing worries me, even if it is MS.

Thoughts? Thanks.

Ms Outlook has no free versions. Outlook.com (former Hotmail.com and Live.com) is a webmail service by Microsoft. It has nothing to do with Microsoft Outlook email client and personal information manager, part of the Microsoft Office suite. If you want to use Outlook.com webmail, you have to sign up for an Outlook.com account.

You can use Microsoft Office Outlook client to read and send Outlook.com mail but they really have nothing else to do with each other.

When a receive an email and it has an attachment ie a Photo, and I save the attachment I've noticed that the downloaded file ends up being " Read Only ". If I download the same attachment from the Outlook Server, it does not have the " Read Only " attribute marked. Also I tried downloading the same attachment via my Thunderbird Client, it also downloads the file, but the " Read only " attribute is NOT set.

Does anybody know how to turn off this feature OFF ?

Hello

To change my email client do I click on control panel>default programs>associate a file type>mail to?

My current one is WLM but I don't know what happens when I click "Change program"!

Will I have a choice like Windows Outlook.com?

**The reason I am asking is because if I click on 'set your default programs' as I usually do and highlight a program to set as default, no other mail is there - just WLM. I have Gmail, 2 Live accounts, Comcast account, and WLM all in my WLM desk account. I was hoping to make the Outlook.com application the email client but maybe it cannot be done.
I have not synchronized and do not know if it is necessary to get Outlook.com to appear on the default program page.
Any help appreciated.

I am not sure if this is the right place for this question or not but I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and there are those panes and one was for Mail. I selected it and it asked me to enter my username and password. I wasn't sure if it would work but I put in my hotmail information and it worked. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to back of out that and there are other people that use this laptop using the same login information. When you select the Mail pane, it automatically goes to my email inbox. Is there a way to reset it so there is no personal info again? I don't really know what I am doing but I do know I don't want a bunch of folks able to read my personal email. I have looked everywhere I know to look.

I would really appreciate any help you can provide.

I currently us Outlook Express for my email client. I often times get email with lots of nice images, links and almost looks like a Web site but it's an email. I was told that I would need to use something other than Outlook Express to do this type of email.

2 questions:

1. Any suggestions of email clients that any of you use to do this type of emailing would be appreciated.

2. Can I use more than one email client (of course only one would be set as the default client), such as Outlook Express and some other client - then switch between the two?

Thanks,
Rudy
