Bug Reports / Re: ACS.exe and Config Disappearing
« Last post by admiralspeedy on January 25, 2016, 08:34:29 PM »
Like I said, I must have another process running on that problematic list. I've actually confirmed that ACS works fine if I rename it to ACS2.exe. It triggers my power profile settings fine. However, doing this breaks launching it through Uplay and updates unless I rename it back to ACS.

I will install that debug version if you'd like, but I'm not sure what information you want from it.

EDIT: The problematic process crash doesn't seem to happen now. I know it restarts but then moments later it was crashing with a "Stopped Working" Windows dialog and I tried it like four times that night and it did it every time, even without ACS running. Also, I don't think the problematic process thing is related to the config. The first time I ever even toggled that setting was when I was trying to get ACS working and I had the config disappear several times before.

I think it would be better if you change it so when you install the program it would ask you if you want it on the desktop. That way for users that want it, it will put it there and the users that do not want it there it will not put it there. Just an idea.

Shutdown is a tricky thing because you *want* to properly clean everything up, though in practice a lot of that cleanup is unnecessary and gets bogged down.

Hotrod called it right - ACS.EXE was originally added to the tamper-proof list as part of Agnitum's Firewall, per this thread:

Whether any game protection, or any issue exists at all, with Assassin's Creed Syndicate ACS.EXE is UNKNOWN, but seems unlikely. We will have to test it in a test bed.

Also, it's unclear whether there is even any serious issue with Agnitum's Firewall that would warrant it being on the tamper-proof list. It may just need to be a ProBalance exclusion. Again, we'll have to set up a test bed.

We already have new technology to better differentiate processes instead of relying on filenames, but it has not been introduced into v8 - it was put off until v9. Fortunately, v9 alpha is beginning, so I'll integrate this ASAP.

EDIT: Also note that we've tested the 'Ignore problematic processes' feature and found so far found NO PROBLEM with it disabled (we are continuing extended testing). Process Lasso will restart itself after it's toggled, which might be seen as a crash? Otherwise, it should work. The fact that a crash happens when this is toggled off may be related to the odd issue with the config reset. The whole situation smells of something strange, and I hope we find out what.

That is a very good observation Hotrod!

Please hold and I will see if I can dig up the rationale for the addition of ACS.EXE to the 'tamper-proof list'.

Similar to admiralspeedy though, I'm more disturbed by the possibility of a configuration loss under any scenario. It should never happen. I am auditing the code now, will pinpoint any possible logic paths that could cause this, and we'll try to identify what is going on.

I'm also going to add a safety in v9 to detect the loss/reset of a configuration, perhaps this will let us catch any anomaly in testing for users that may not have otherwise noticed.

Why my Windows 10 is shutting down slowly!!!

Blame Microsoft. ::)
Just kidding, it is still investigating, and the workaround that telling you to turn off all software and internet connection....

Well, I always doing that every boot(except I don't close PL and Anti-Virus, it might be the reason), but I has a better workaround.
Just buy yourself a SSD, as it is read/writing on the hard disk while this issues happen, this should helps everything. ;)

This issue occurs because of changes in the way that Service Control Manager cleanly shuts down user services. Specifically, a code-handling session shutdown may terminate a process early.
Well, we never know how's it works, but it is working, mostly on Edge/IE for phishing website.(excluding China) ;D

acs.exe is also the name of one of Agnitum's Outpost security software files as well as Atheros WLAN driver set. Could this be a side effect of Agnitum processes being dealt with internally??  :o

Both are very appropriate additions. I will work to provide both these (exit by GUI and non-minimized to tray start) in a coming minor update. I'll post here as I make progress.

Thank you for the suggestions!
It does not appear because these security products have tamper-detection and protection technologies that can sometimes go awry, so Process Lasso just leaves them alone - since it's primary mission is not to be a task manager.

However, you can make MsMpEng.exe show by unchecking 'Options / General / Ignore problematic processes'.

You never want to restrain security software because it is doing real-time scanning and a restraint of any kind may cause a blocking condition. However, some limited restraint can be done, sure.

BUT, it's much better to simply adjust Windows Defender settings.

In your case, it is surely doing it's scheduled scan. Change the schedule. And if you are doing real-time scanning, consider if you even need frequent scheduled scans? Also you can adjust other settings, for instance if it scans inside archives. If it finds a big archive, it can really get bogged down having to extract and scan every file inside.
