Re: Windows Defender

Dick Grote
 

I do have Norton running.  That is why I was surprised that Windows defender got involved.  

I had issues that 3 of the DXLab's programs not starting after a Windows upgrade and per Dave's advice, I booted into Safe mode.  I launched the three programs in Safe and I had to click through a Windows Defender warning to start the programs.  At the time Windows Defender was not my selected AV software, but still it seemed to be in play during the upgrade. And that is why I'm going to go to the effort to exclude DXLabs in Defender even though it isn't selected.

Re: Clublog Upload TImeout

+ Based on your description, there are several possible culprits, but DXKeeper isn't one of them.

I agree Dave. DXKeeper wasn't the problem and never thought it was since it's worked for years. At first I thought it was a Clublog issue, like what W4TV linked to. But after a month of this I decided to post and do some troubleshooting. I'm not sure if my tinkering with the Windows Defender Firewall did something or not. But at least it's working and hopefully will stay working!

No doubt these Windows "upgrades" will continue to provide hours of troubleshooting fun!

Click the Sel button in Launcher go tp the DXkeeper folder and select DXKeeper.exe.  That should get you going.

Re: Windows Defender

Barry Murrell ZS2EZ
 

I run ESET Internet Security – no problems at all. I have Windows 10 Pro, so disabled Defender completely via Group Policies.  Peace of mind…

 

Something Windows DID mess up with a recent update : I keep my time set via Meinberg NTP, which during installation disables the Windows Time Service. Windows decided on it’s own to turn this back on – and as a result interfered with Meinberg…. JTDX (my operating platform of choice) has a nice feature that highlights a warning if the time goes significantly out based on average DTs,  and upon checking immediately disabled the offending Windows Time Service – voila, back to exact time!!

 

Bottom line : after a Windows Update, check EVERYTHING!!!

Re: Windows Defender

We use an alternative AV here as well and WIndows-10 Pro did no turn Defender back on at the last update? It has popped up a few "NAG" notices about turning Windows Firewall back on  but did not override my current settings.

I have had WIN10- play games with some USB drivers in the recent past though ....... 8^(
