    I uninstalled two Ruiware programs that had worked troublefree for years. After a C Cleaner sweep I kept getting persistent error messages related to these two, even when they were not running. After uninstalling them, the error messages stopped. During the setup to reinstall the first one, a new error message came up. New in the sense that it gave a different error number. Not new in the sense that it, too, was followed by “The program will now terminate.”

    It seems that a problem of this sort has at one time been dealt with here, since I found the forum in the results of a websearch. After going through registration, however, I’m clueless as to where that discussion might be stored. Thanks, in case anyone familiar with it, or with knowledge of how to resolve such a snag, cares to address my concern.

    Hello blues_harp28,

    Thanks for your prompt reply and good advice. I did check, although I was quite sure that Ccleaner is not in my autostarts and that I hadn't enabled system monitoring. I've learned from unpleasant experiences to be careful in these matters. I have only 8 autostarts, not counting system services.

    You correctly intuited, though, that I use Winpatrol. I've loved it since it first came out. And, the two programs I uninstalled and now have trouble reinstalling are the antiransom and firewall by the same developer.

    I suspect that Ccleaner did alter something or other in the registry that's needed for the language these programs are written in. If that's the case, it's my fault. I ran the cleanup during a hectic time and may have inadvertently checked a non-default section in Ccleaner's task menu. I really don't remember.

    At any rate, your suggestion is well appreciated. Having Ccleaner and Winpatrol get in each other's way monitoring would have been problematic. I'll stay tuned in here for more ideas and also keep you informed of anything else I manage to unearth about this.

    Kind regards

    I do not know these two programs you have mentioned.
    Do not use the registry cleaner in Ccleaner. Registry cleaners can cause more problems than they solve.

    Unfortunately, BillP, the developer of WinPatrol had to sell the company. Bill has health issues.
    Ever since it was sold, it has gone downhill. There is little to no support for WinPatrol.

    You can see discussions here where support used to be given.
    https://www.landzdown.com/anti-spyw...patrol-plus-winpatrol-firewall-winpatrol-war/

    There are other threads at that forum by others mentioning the lack of support for the programs.

    Thanks, once again, blues_harp28. The speed and clarity of your responses amaze me! I'll follow your instructions and post the results for your review. It'll likely be a few hours before I can do it, since I'm momentarily tied up assisting a friend in need.
    I appreciate the information regarding the support deterioration at Winpatrol, of which I was unaware. In the years of my using the three programs I never had occasion to request support. They are running glitch free on my Windows 10 laptop, just as they did on the Windows 7 PC and several others before, but I'm glad you brought the potential future snags to my attention.
    Need to sign off now and get back to helping my friend. I'll provide you with the logs as soon as I can. In the meantime, I wish you a peaceful Veterans Day.

    Greetings and thanks to plodr. I'll definitely check out the links you kindly posted. Sad to learn about the goings-on at Winpatrol. The programs Bill wrote were second to none. It would be a shame if the new owners were to neglect their proper upkeep.

    Sorry about the red disabled scare above. That was my doing. I turned the security off for a drivers update that ran while I was busy helping my friend. I just forgot to turn them on again when I came back.

    Oh! I belatedly turned the user account control back on also. I don't think you'll want me to post the log again just for that. I will, though, if you want me to. It'd been a bit of a rough night. I'm not always this forgetful.

    Hi, you do not need to re-post Security Check by screen317 log file.

    You have Norton Internet Security Online installed and should not need to install any Anti Ransom program.
    If both programs are running in real-time they may end up scanning the same files and folders/applications, etc and you may end up less protected, not more.

    Let us know if all is now a OK.

    Thanks, blues_harp28 – and sorry for my late response. I have been out juggling too many things again today.
    I’m fine for now, although I will continue looking for what set off error messages against two law abiding programs. That Ccleaner’s maybe a little too enthusiastic sweep a while ago has been at least complicit, seems fairly evident. An innocent shared dll or some dependency – collateral damage in Net Framework – wispy things of that sort populate my thinking And, you know better than I ever will that Windows bowel issues are not self correcting.
    Your reasoning that conflicts can arise from task-redundancies makes perfect sense to me. It’s sound advice I’d follow any time. But on the outside chance you might be interested, I’ll mention why this is no clear-cut instance of the principle in question.
    I’ve used the Ruiware programs for years, whereas I only recently acquired Norton. My carrier bundles it for free with in-home line, hardware, and connectivity repair, along with other services I value.
    When I got Norton, I adjusted settings – both in Norton and in Winpatrol’s WAR (anti-ransom) program, to keep each one on its own tracks. Plus, they have different objectives in the first place.
    Unlike Norton Online, Win WAR does not bother with scanning. If something has an executable or script it gets arrested till I whitelist it. It’s radical approach is called "preemptive strike.”
    The other Ruiware program, while classified a firewall, focuses on privacy threats. The pair doesn’t infringe on Norton’s beat, and Norton has no problem with their simple doglike law enforcement method.
    Hardly existing overlaps in jurisdiction get configured off the map. As I mentioned before, the applications work together well on my Win10 laptop and did so on the Windows 7 PC, until I let Ccleaner cause a problem with the underlying system – or expose a dormant one already waiting to erupt.
    I hope my speculations didn’t bore or, worse, offend you. As to my current issue, I’ll just plod along snooping as time permits. I want to get to understand what went awry, exactly where and how and why. Especially my part in it, so that I’ll never have to haul two faithful dogs off to the pound again. Fond greetings to all of you daring captains voyaging the treacherous cyber seas. Thanks in advance for any further guidance.

    We all stay with programs and applications that we feel work best for us, and that's how it should be.
    Sometimes things go wrong and it can be trying but that's why computers will always need human input, well that's my belief anyway.
    On Winpatrol’s WAR and other programs - don't forget what plodr said

    If all is now Ok - it can be marked Solved at the top of this page.:)

    Agreed. I’ve also checked plodr’s links and read the comments there. Thanks, again, and all the best.
