First, the described below was the case with v3.0.14 and persists after recent update to 3.015.
The Software Update mentioned in the subject is a-squared anti-malware scanner
fom EMSI http://www.emsisoft.com/en/
The updates for the Signatures are coming frequently and I am not having any issues with that. The updated Signatures [b]and Modules/b always downloaded successfully into the Windows\Temp (according to my Environment Settings - F:_Temp_Core_User)
The signatures are always getting into correct location C:\Program Files\a-squared Free\Signatures as a result.
But as soon as modules were downloaded they are sitting in the mentioned Temp folder the Pending file list indicates for example:
Usually the indication of the successful Update concerning executables (modules) would be a2 asking to restart itself.
That’s will happen after the old modules are substituted by the new ones.
I don’t have that request – the modules cannot be overwritten.
… but… I tested the following:
When I know according to published changelog at the site that the new modules are coming I disable Defense+ from Sys Tray right-click (not permanently from Advanced/Deactivate) and all will go “according to plan”
New files will overwrite the old ones, a2 will ask to restart itself, there are e.g.
C:\Program Files\a-squared Free\a2free.exe……Modified
C:\Program Files\a-squared Free\engine.dll………Modified
in Pending files which is correct.
I put all modules into my Trusted List and Comodo itself considered a2service.exe, which is the service responsible for updates, as a Trusted.
What could be wrong with Defense+ in conjunction with a-squared?
Do I need some additional settings?
It looks like a-squared is the only Application that behaves “weirdly”.
Other updates of security programs I have performing updates fine
Thanks in advance.
