HIPS preventing task scheduler processes
« on: June 14, 2016, 06:57:27 AM »
when I put HIPS on level 3, it blocks Macrium Reflect from running a backup, unless I happen to be on the computer to manually allow it.

I tried adding MR to global exclusions, but that did not help

Voodooshield and HitmanPro need to go.

You also need to make sure Webroot is completely gone.

please note that voodooshield and HMP.A are not anti-virus programs. they are specifically designed to be a companion to AV, not to replace it.

Do you try repair-Repair Avast:
1. Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs -> Avast
2. Click on 'Repair'.
3. Follow instructions.
4. Reboot.

I noticed this problem immediately after install, so I don't think repair is called for.
To be more specific about the issue: HIPS level 3 triggers a pop-up when I manually start a backup job.
level 2 blocks a backup job started from task scheduler.
So I am down to level 1 now.

I ran repair and I still see the same behavior when macrium reflect runs a system backup.
but when it runs a file backup, all is well.

where do I find the log?
I want to see if Avast blocked the scheduled system backup, or if something else went wrong.
