I need to find out if my desktop can be fixed for free, using my own skill level and get my pop ups and get the virus out of my computer.  I do not have  much savy on computers and i really like using but the last two years or longer, it's been going on. Linus 17 has kept every type of self help from being done. That's why i am here, because i am at my wits end. Can you help me at all, for free, or is it out of the question?  Desperate in the Hoosier state, and i do not mean maybe.

I have a new client with a light speed web filter appliance. It's currently licensed for just web filtering. Does anyone know if they also offer licensing for virus/malware filtering and detection? I am waiting for a call back from sales but this is time sensitive.

Thanks

How to generate and install SSL certificate for Avast?  -- Never worked with SSL certificates, always had someone else do it.    I am installing the Avast Business Management Console on my Win7 Pro workstation to manage the installation of Avast Business Pro on 3 servers (SBS2011, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2) and 7 desktops (Win7Pro, Win10Pro).   During the installation it prompts as to whether 'I have my own SSL certificate'  OR  'I don't have my own SSL certificate'.   The install states that 'We will generate a self-signed certificate which is good enough for temporary testing purposes.  However, it does not meet high security standards, therefore we recommend to use own SSL certificate.'  

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thank you.

Hi All,

I created a centralize exception under SEPM (Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager) to disable  the possibility for the users to add a user-defined exceptions (SEP client version 14.x) locally. That works perfectly but the previous "user-defined exceptions" created by the users are still present in the list and with the action "Ignore".
There is a way to delete all previous exceptions created by them and only force the centralize one?
Thanks in advance,
Javier

We currently use iSheriff to control all of our users' Internet activity, web browsing and Anti-Virus.  I am very pleased with their services, however, they will no longer be around after the end of this year.

I am looking for recommendations on other companies offering these types of services.  I would prefer advice from EE users that have actually used the product they recommend.

We are The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles, non-profit, so cost is a factor.  My budget is around $3500, per year.   We have 80 employees.

I have a question about Symantec Endpoint Protection.  We are trying to block USB access but are running into an issue with one of our devices.  From what I can tell, things like imaging devices are not supposed to be blocked.

However, many of our stations have ID scanners that are being blocked.  When I look in the device manager the ID scanners do show up as imaging devices.  

I'm not seeing how you white list a device.  

Thanks in advance for any help.

JavaScript Best Practices

Save hours in development time and avoid common mistakes by learning the best practices to use for JavaScript.

Good afternoon,

I am currently experiencing problems with my McAfee Policy Orquestrator version 5.3.2 console. Motivated by the fall of the console on many occasions, during these two days, the console is falling several times. The operating system where I installed the console is Windows Server 2012.

Actions done:

- Restart Mcafee services, the console works for a few moments and fails again.

- Run a Performance Monitor and in the report I see no signs of console failure.

- The server responds to the ping, at the network level I have no problems.

- Restart the server and, for the moment, I have not presented the problem, but as a precaution, I want to know what else I can validate.

Revisions we have not made:

- We have an external database for Mcafee, I have my doubts, if there may be a failure. The database is SQL Server 2012.
- Could try the ODBC connection to validate if there are connection problems with the database.
- I could validate the record (regedit). To validate the installation parameters of the console.
I validated the error a bit, I did not find much, just this McAfee KB, but it did not help much.

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB83647

Is there anything else I suggest I can review, does it sound more like an operating system or application failure? At the level of the operating system that other revisions can I execute? Should I open a report with Microsoft and McAfee to receive assistance?
