  1. Hello, i started today my old thinkpad after few months of not using it; running Windows 7 SP1 and updated it to latest MS cumulative patch KB4493472 I'm running AE & AM - 1.1.196 beta on Veracrypt 1.23-hotfix2 full disk encrypted boot partition. I noticed during disk intensive operations (e.g. Passmark Performace Test - particularly Disk Mark) the computer hangs. Not whole at once, but first the HDD LED goes off and apps start to hang one by one. It looks like apps which need disk access hang (e.g. web browser) and simple app like calculator continues to work. At the end i need to power off the laptop. In the windows system eventlog there is absolutely no related event saved. The SSD shows no hw errors. If i disable the anti-ransomware the hang situation does not seem to happen and before the months i was using the computer regularly it did not happen as well (with AR enabled). As the AM version is same, maybe it might be related to some recent windows patch I have no Sophos nor Avast nor any other antivirus installed (re known issues with this KB4493472: Microsoft and Sophos have identified an issue on devices with Sophos Endpoint Protection installed and managed by either Sophos Central or Sophos Enterprise Console (SEC) that may cause the system to freeze or hang upon restart after installing this update. ) I do not experience such issues on my other laptop running Windows 10 1803. Anyone with similar problem or some advice how to solve this issue? Maybe this MS patch affects Malwarebytes in a similar way like Sophos? Thanks.
  2. Hello, i believe my issue is same - related to this: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/24709 Torbutton: Unexpected error on new identity: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED) [nsIPrefService.savePrefFile]" nsresult: "0x80520015 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://torbutton/content/torbutton.js :: torbutton_do_new_identity :: line 1202" data: no] when i try to create a New Identity. However i found out, that also no settings are saved. I'm using Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, latest patches, and latest TorBrowser 7.0.11 I deleted whole torbrowser folder and downloaded fresh installation file and installed it and same issue. I downloaded zipped torbrowser from another computer where it works and on my computer - same issue. I ran procmon and i think this is the related error: 13:18:42,3674148 firefox.exe 6840 SetRenameInformationFile C:\Run\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Browser\profile.default\prefs-1.js ACCESS DENIED ReplaceIfExists: True, FileName: C:\Run\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Browser\profile.default\prefs.js This is from a working computer: 1:22:11.4822217 PM firefox.exe 3404 SetRenameInformationFile C:\Run\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Browser\profile.default\prefs-1.js SUCCESS ReplaceIfExists: True, FileName: C:\Run\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Browser\profile.default\prefs.js Please note: i have no antivirus, i'm logged in/running all apps as administrator, the folder is writable, the disk is not full. Thanks. EDIT: I have just found out that when i disable malwarebytes antiransomware ... then it is working.
