  1. Just checked my BIOS and the clock time is set correctly there, same with my system time in windows...
  2. Thank you for chiming in, seems to indicate that this may indeed be something which is caused by KAV/KIS-2015 and not something specifically wrong with my machine. I should also note that adding the cert on that profile permanently seems to have fixed the issue, but again I reiterate that I don't believe this should be something that the user *has* to do manually
  3. (my getsysteminfo is still in the first post) So I just did some more troubleshooting... I uninstalled palemoon, then uninstalled kav and rebooted. I rebooted once more for good measure, then reinstalled kav, updated and rebooted again. Then I installed palemoon and immediately after trying this, google worked. Then...about 15minutes later I started palemoon up again and I get the same error as listed in the first post... Making a new palemoon profile and then going to google gives me this page: (The technical details section shows the same error 'Error code: sec_error_untrusted_issuer') Interestingly, look at the certificate screen that showed up: Maybe it is some sort of certificate issue? If I confirm the security exception google works and all is well...Should I just do this? I feel like this should be something transparent to the user though, that I should not have to do? Any further advice or suggestions would be appreciated
  4. My get systeminfo link is in my first post (2nd line) and disabling protection/everything does not seem to stop it, which is odd... I do not have time right this second but I will update when I have tried turning things off one by one
  5. Sorry, forgot to mention in my original post: This box is unchecked and does not seem to make any difference with regard to this problem, whether or not it is checked or not (I turn this option off anyway)
  6. (Windows 7-64 Pro, Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015, all web browsers are the latest non-beta versions) http://www.getsysteminfo.com/read.php?file...a929934fb0809ba I recently updated KAV from 2014 to 2015. Ever since I have done this, my browser palemoon is refusing to load certain pages which use SSL (url begins with https://), and the error message is as follows: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.google.com. Peer's certificate has an invalid signature. (Error code: sec_error_bad_signature) The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site. Firefox causes me no problems, nor does IE. What makes me suspect it is KAV is that everything was working fine, until I rebooted after installing KAV 2015. Also, removing https and replacing it with http in the URL will allow the site to load. I even uninstalled kav in an attempt to troubleshoot, and sure enough removing it got rid of the problem. When I re-installed this problem returned. Is it possible that KAV is causing this? Is there a way I can find out for sure? Any suggestions on how to fix it would also be appreciated. I would like to keep using 2015 but may downgrade back to 2014 if I cannot find a solution to this
  7. Adding the whole folder to exclusions for 'all components' wasn't working for me. I also noticed...kaspersky seems to have removed the original poclbm.exe from my filesystem(it's not in quarantine as far as I can see), so I replaced it with a new copy of the .exe from the original poclbm archive. It will now suddenly let me use and access poclbm.exe as well. I am on windows 7, but somehow this exclusion has also been added to my exclusions list (from one of the several times I clicked "add to exclusions" for this .exe): c:\documents and settings\[username]\desktop\poclbm_py2exe_20110709\poclbm.exe I do not know why it is documents and settings instead of users, perhaps this is related?
  8. I'm trying to use the poclbm bitcoin miner, but kaspersky keeps warning me that it is malware. Despite adding it to exclusions I keep getting access denied errors when I try to call poclbm.exe from the command prompt. Further, when I try to add it to my exclusions, I get a "write not supported" message and I am still unable to access the exe file. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Poclbm This is NOT malware, and adding it to the exclusions should work, but it for some reason is not. Disabling protection seems to let me access the file sometimes but other times it will not. I would appreciate if someone could offer me some advice on how to fix this...
  9. (This screenshot was taken after about 53 hours of system uptime) I have been having some serious problems with KAV2011 ( a.b.c.d.e.f). When my computer first boots up avp.exe will be using very little memory (maybe 20-50mb according to task manager) and everything on my system will be very fast and responsive, as I would expect. As time goes on, over the course of a few days avp.exe begins using huge amounts of system memory (sometimes 600mb+), and many things on my system will start to slow down. Some examples of things that operate normally when my computer is freshly rebooted and begin to take longer as the system is up longer (I suspect that KAV is what is responsible for this...): Miranda IM new message window popup - this is almost immediate early on, but after a few days of uptime it will take a very long time for a new message window to pop up after selecting a buddy from my list or receiving an incoming IM Firefox 5 startup time - takes a few seconds initially, after a few days of uptime and when avp.exe is getting big, this can take 15-25 seconds or longer Minecraft - The time between when I click login and can actually use the ingame menus increases over time, this is very fast when the system has low uptime, after a while this can take 20 seconds or longer to become responsive The steam ingame overlay - this will be responsive as normal shortly after reboot, but after a few days it will take a very, very long time for it to pop up while in a game (counter-strike: source mostly, if it matters) Most of this may just be due to reduced availability of system memory... Once avp.exe starts taking a lot of memory (600mb+) there will be times when it also begins to use around 100% of my cpu, making the system next to unresponsive. This will stop on its own sometimes, other times it gets so bad that I must restart my computer or it will simply stop responding. Stopping protection and right clicking the system tray icon and exiting KAV does not return the memory from this process (it stays using all several hundred mb). Further more, at this point if I restart KAV it will tell me that protection is disabled and will not let me re-enable it. If I reboot my system things go back to normal, avp.exe uses a small amount of memory, and my system is fast again. This will slowly deteriorate over the next few days as avp.exe eats up more and more memory. During the times when avp.exe cpu usage is around 90% or more, I notice that a process called gadd64.exe appears and then disappears very quickly, and many times in task manager. Also the avp.exe memory footprint will shrink very briefly down to like 20mb, then it goes right back up to 500mb+. I noticed all of this started somewhat recently after I tried to upgrade from KAV2011 to KAV2012. I had uninstalled KAV2011, then rebooted and installed KAV2012. It seemed like KAV2012 was causing me issues with steam and freenet so I removed it, rebooted again and then reinstalled KAV2011. After this I started to notice the slowdown and huge cpu usage taking place. I did some searching around and I tried removing kav2011, rebooting, using the kaspersky removal tool with the -notdetect switch, I rebooted again and did a fresh install of KAV2011. This did not solve the problem and at present KAV2011 is still requiring me to reboot my system every few days. I am hoping that when KAV2012 is finally "officially" released the issues with freenet and steam will be fixed, and there is a chance that this high CPU usage issue may be fixed as well, but until then it appears there may be a memory leak or something with KAV2011 I have all the most recent drivers for my video cards, and other system hardware; I am also running win7-sp1 and all the windows updates up until now have been applied. (I have also done an offline scan with the kav rescue disk 10 and it doesn't appear I have any kind of rootkits or malware or anything). I also run RAID-1 on my C:\ drive Here is a link to my GSI report, taken at the time of the screenshot above: http://www.getsysteminfo.com/read.php?file...34ad3e29436df25 In the meantime I am hoping that someone may be able to provide me with some advice or might have an idea what the problem may be.
  10. A while back I was cleaning out some malware I had archived on my computer for various research purposes. Recently I was deleting some of it from areas which are excluded from kaspersky protection. Later on I was browsing some of my music collection when kaspersky pointed out a jpeg file that had been identified as containing malware: 10/1/2010 05:24:20 µTorrent File Anti-Virus Deleted: Backdoor.Win32.Assasin.20.h D:\new-torrents\Cafè Sunkissed #4\cover.jpg So I told my client to skip over this file and left it deleted. The interesting part is, assassin was one of the pieces of software I had recently removed from my excluded directory on my hard drive... Today I went back again and told my torrent client to try to download the cover.jpg file again, and nothing came up....and to me it seems odd that kaspersky would identify a harmless file as falsely positive immediately after removing malware from my system...
