Computer Crash this Morning

Computer crashed this morning after downloading and running Eset smart security.

I did have Avast on but removed it completely using Revo uninstaller.

Eset did find a problem in the Firewall which I think it stopped from running but will have to wait till it stops scanning so that I can check what the fault was.

Ok Scan Just finished and the problem was.Port scanning Attack.

Source 221. 192.199.49:1.1200

target 82.29.12,241:6515 TCP

Any way of finding out what it is maybe one of my other security programs.

Probably a one off but will see if it happens again.Scan ran Ok that time without crashing.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Eset Smart Security include a firewall of its own? If so it could be that a conflict occurred between that which you have installed and the Eset item.

These security programs are self protective so I don't think using revo to remove Avast is a good idea. I would have removed it in safe mode using the Avast removal tool. Possibly some leftover files conflicting with Eset.

I had Avast firewall but removed it all before downloading Eset with its own Firewall.

I had something like it before as it used to react when running my poker Stars on line gaming program.But I deleted that about a month ago.

This is what I am getting now.

Now when I installed Eset I set it to automatic filtering mode in the Firewall settings.maybe I should have set it to interactive mode so not sure about that.Maybe someone using Eset can tell me what their firewall is set at.

Poker stars was on my other computer and also using Eset on that.

I found no other parts for Avast on the menu bar.Ran my Registry cleaner which found one thing for avast but never checked what it was as I had already deleted it.

If it happens again I will run the Avast removal tool to see if it clears it.

Winaso question.

Did you not usually get a months trial with that program or am I getting mixed up with something else.

Getting 400 odd problems running Winaso so tried C Cleaner which removed quite a lot then tried Winaso again but it still showed over 400 problems.As it only deletes 10 at a time it would have taken ages so gave up.

Winaso was for my son in laws computer.I always preferred it to C Cleaner.

Going out now but will be back in a few hours in case anyone was wondering why I never posted back.

All those scans appear to be on ports associated with your connection to the web. I think it is likely they are false positives but you could try running the Gibson checker to see what your security is like and whether any port is possible of being scanned. I feel certain that some cookies placed by some sites could cause this type of reaction and it could be the firewall in Eset has been updated since your last installation.

I have always used the interactive mode when installing a firewall. It takes a bit longer to settle down but at least it provides the confidence of being set to the values/conditions of your choice rather than the default.

I think you are correct with the false positives as I have trouble with the web connection.

Just had another look and there seems to be a few more added.

I will have a look at the checker that you posted.

That checker seemed to think things were ok.How would you allow those port scanning attacks to run normally again without being classed as a scanning attack.

I just downloaded Eset Smart Security yesterday as I had already removed it about 4 months ago to run Avast.Fully updated it yesterday before running it.

It is valid up till may and was getting fed up with the Avast pop ups telling me it was running out soon.

I have been advised to run the Avast removal tool just to see if there were any leftovers.So might do that this afternoon.

Maybe you would not get so many problems if you did not use these reg cleaners, I have MSE and Malwarebytes with Windows firewall and scan one a month. I do not use a reg cleaner of any sort as,in the past they have caused more trouble than they solved. I cannot remember when I last had a problem with my PC apart from the ones caused by myself with a tweak to far.

Ran the Avast removal program today so will see if that makes any difference.

Still having problems connecting to the Internet when booting up.

Troubleshoot does no good clicking on local Area Connection and pressing repair does no good.But If I start HitmanPro it will then connect to the Internet.

A bit weird I thought how can connecting to an Anti-malware program start your Internet connection.

Tried it with other Security programs and they would not connect.Nor I/E or Firefox.
