Curious to know what anti-virus anti-malware software each of you are using, on your BBS machine.
Since removing it, I'm still experiencing delays at login for up to 10 seconds via telnet. I'm not quite sure how to fix it now.
Maybe try a system restore if you have that turned on in Windows 10 to roll back before you installed Avast or a Windows 10 reset if you don't have that turned on.
Maybe try a system restore..
I went above and beyond the system restore, and completely
reinstalled windows, python, php, vs, node js, etc.. It
improved some performance, but not the delayed login and
delayed keystroke acknowledgement during login. It has to be
something with the BBS at this point, however I didn't make
any changes, so it's a mystery I'm slowly chipping away at.
Curious to know what anti-virus anti-malware software each of you are using, on your BBS machine. I'm on windows 10, tried Avast, and had to remove it. It seemed to lack the settings to allow the BBS to run
without it questioning every file loaded (mis in mystic, exe files for online games, etc...) Since removing it, I'm still experiencing delays
at login for up to 10 seconds via telnet. I'm not quite sure how to
fix it now. Regardless, I'd like to have something .. free preferred
or at minimum not a rip off like AVAST wanted to do (the charges to add what should be automatically included were a bit much: $49 for basic,
more for pro, more for vpn, driver updates, etc...) it felt like the
game Roblocks my kids play -- they're always wanting more money to buy robucks to purchase items within the game ... smh.
Maybe turn off everything (Win10 itself and any other progs) that auto-updates.
I'm using the IObit Malware Fighter. You can get a yearly subscription for $40, I believe, but it's valid for 3 computers. They have several other great utilities for Windows systems, and at times, good deals on them. I think except for IObit Uninstaller and SmartDefrag, which are
for 1 computer only, per license...most of the rest of the items are for
3 computers upon a yearly registration. To me, it's worth it. They are
You're going to laugh at me. After all of the trouble
shooting I've done, it was nodespy being loaded creating the
delay (smh). I fully admit to extreme, off the road, four
wheeling, trouble shooting having occured for absolutely
ZERO reason at all.
However my rabbit hole adventure did result in a carrot: my
ISP gave me twice the speed to 1gig permanent, and an
upgraded router with a repeater for the exact price I was
paying for half the speed and a crappy router. Then, after
the 1 year, the price only goes up $5! I love my MetroNet
Thanks Daryl! I'll check it out. Did you have to disable/set any features / advanced settings that prevented iobit from reading every
.EXE prior to allowing it's execution? I noticed AVAST doing that with any online game loaded, MIS being launched, etc... I could not find a setting to leave the BBS directory alone .. so just deleted it. I like iobit products. I use their driver update tool, which is free as a
beta right now, that has been a huge time saver compared to going to
the manufacturers support page and manually downloading and updating

Fix-It Utilities, for my virus scanners. Too bad that there isn't a command line scanner one can use for new uploads to the BBS. I also used
I don't know what nodespy is, and the description at github sounds greek to me (middleware within middleware, node.js, etc..)
That sounds like a very sweet carrot, indeed!
They provide the router and repeater for free?
Let me try this again. I had more than one QWK packet, and I zapped the REP packet <blush!> -- I think it's too early in the day. :P
First, I've never seen a setting of such with IObit. It does have 3 scanning options:
1) Smart Scan - scans only the critical file areas of the system.
2) Full Scan - scans the entire system.
3) Custom Scan - scans what file or directory you specify.
Second, in the past, I've used McAfee, F-Prot, CA Internet Security,
and Fix-It Utilities, for my virus scanners. Too bad that there isn't a command line scanner one can use for new uploads to the BBS. I also used to run the THDPro program, which allowed me to process new uploads immediately.
Clam-AV works nicely on the linux end for command line and on demand scanning, I wonder if it would work with a linux subsystem install
under windows? ===
I don't know....but on a ham radio traffic net last night, several
noted that the next version of Windows will have a Linux Kernel System,
or something like that. Not sure when it'll be released...let alone the
Works alright, though I prefer to go the other direction most of the
time and let Linux have the driver's seat ;)
Ha! No worries, thats my every morning prior to a few cups of coffee.
I'll try the IO bit now that my daughter flew back home this AM I'll
have time to install. I remember McAfee, used to like it pretty well.
Nortons came free with my laptop and I sware it won't uninstall. It somehow knows I've done so, and has extensions within chrome and who
knows where else to send "reminders" that my PC isn't "protected," even when Windows 10 has built in virus and malware support (sigh ..) I remember trying IO bit and liked it, but had since reinstalled windows.
The only application I didn't like of theirs (since my last post) is their driver update. It installed an updated driver to my laptop that disabled my Miracast, which took me a good hour to research how to turn back on. At the end of the day I had to delete and reinstall the wifi
6 driver prior to it working.
You can drink an extra cup for me. I never acquired a taste for it, but am currently drinking diet green tea citrus...over a half gallon a day. Tea is a diuretic, but better for me than carbonated beverasges.
That was the first one I used.

There were a lot of false positives with Norton's. And, most anti-virus programs throw a fit if they detect another anti-virus deal on the
system. The only one I've seen that does not throw a fit is the Sophos Anti-Virus software.
I had to get rid of Firefox. Something this last Windows 10 update
did, Firefox would never load after a reboot. Plus, it kept crashing
when I was on Facebook. And, I surely don't want to use Microsoft Edge.

I love tea! My favorite is PG Tips. I do like darker coffees / teas though. But my parents were raised in New York and thats what they
drank. I got used to putting too much cream and sugar in either; i'm
down to cream. I can't do diuretic's, as I've had past kidney failure.
Oddly, the doctors said coffee was fine while within the hospital, but not tea. I can feel the difference too, as the caffine does not impact
me with coffee, but amps up my heart rate with tea. But I love how tea stays hotter then coffee, even if a coffee press is used. Wierd.
I had been away from windows for a good part of 7 years while running
my business. I was able to use my iphone for all business functions.
What I'm not liking about windows 10 is it's apparent attempt to transition to more of a google chrome environment. I don't like the
"Ap" features, nor the abandonment of 16bit applications, nor the punisment to 8gb of memory if the 32 bit version of 10 is used. I
always find it odd that either the softare is ahead of the hardware or visa versa. I think ensuring downward compatibility is important, if
for anything nostalgia. But the push for cloud computing I reject.
I'd rather have my stuff on my system and not tied to a paid format. I remember being able to load multiple malware programs, each more
effective with particular types, then others. In addition, a free standing virus program. I uninstalled ALL anti virus and have been
using whats built in to windows 10 now, which works well. I have found that one program will state all is good, the other will find 10 errors somewhere and correct, causing the other to freak out. Without knowing enough about the inner workings of said programs, I, for the moment,
have given up on all of them.
Re install it. It works just fine. Maybe you had an older version. I like firefox, it has an incredible java script instruction guide. So I keep it around for that purpose if for anything else. It's also as compatible with web pages as chrome with what appears to be less
invasive notifications and snooping. Tor is my goto, to avoid more tracking and the such, but it's slower. Edge is horrible, as is the
built in wanna be version of outlook. It's so bad, most attachments
aren't even accessible. I'm slightly disappointed within Win 10, but
... its the operating system I know. I use powershell more often then windows anyway. But, I'm planning on connecting my pi4's (3 of them)
and learning linux for the first time, here in a few weeks (which I've been saying since March, but ... life gets in the way). My kids are already ahead of me on the PI's. Smh.
