Q: Real time screen capture

Is there any way to capture screen data (real time), and pipe to a database or another s/w ?

A: Real time screen capture

Yes. That's how all remote control programs and screen recorders work. Do you have something specific in mind?

I am using a Dazzle instant DVD recorder and running an Acer Aspire 5100 notebook with a AMD Turion 2.0Ghz processer with ATI Radeon Xpress 1100....with windows XP.

When I try to capture video onto my hard drive, or even direct record to DVD the Video is in double time, like its in fast forward. And the audio plays in real time, so of course the audio is not in sync with the video and it's terrible. Any ideas?

I've been using Webroot Anti-virus with Spy Sweeper but am looking to change as viruses have recently crippled my computer.

I am interested in using Avast and malwarebytes. Can they both be used for real time protection or would they conflict with each other (and/or take up too much resources)? I am looking at getting the paid version of malwearebytes for real time protection.

Would running only one of these programs as real time protection sufficiently protect my computer from virusues, malware and spyware or would using only one leave me vulnerable?

Thanks for any insight here.

A:Is it a good idea to run Avast and malwarebytes (real time protection) at the same time?

As for MBAM, I use the free version for on demand scans. Read this:The full version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware includes the ability to schedule updates and provides a real-time malware protection module that stops malicious processes before they can infect your computer.

Anyone know of any Real Time AV program that can be downloaded free. Trying to find something for a person that does not have any AV protection and can't seem to afford purchasing a program at this time.

Is the Grisoft product worth giving a whirl, or are there others to consider?

There is another thread on this page disputing the merits of Grisoft AVG. Howver I and many others find it a competent enough program.

Maybe you should describe why this is important to you.

"Real time" is a term normally used to describe a time critical process that must be accomplished within a specific time window. There is no "real time" networking option with Windows, what you see is what you get. If you want to do something closer to the bare metal, you could look into VC++ and WINSOCK programming.

On a political discussion board I sometimes frequent someone posted in their Computer help forum (a pretty good one, for a political forum) this topic: Running AVAST and Microsoft Security Essentials together.So far no conflict. Any negatives to doing this you think?Now I'm well aware that many Security Pros will STRONGLY advise against running two AV's because "they conflict... degrade performance...use vast resources...cause system instability... will slow your computer to a crawl....cause system conflicts and instability.... etc, etc---but very few of these respected & highly credentialed individuals offer little more than "because I'm an MVP & I say so" as a reason WHY all those things MAY (or may not?) occur. Then there's the UN-credentialed opinionated A**HOLES arguing on both sides with little more than "Because I'm smarter than you & I said so" arguments.I spent a few hours today Googling the subject, and after reading through hundreds of topics on about a dozen sites I came across this post on the CNET forum which offers a very sound & easy to understand argument against running 2 AV's:Reply # 29 by GoodTimeCharlie @ http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6132_102-309240.html One needs to keep in mind the difference between products.

A:2 Real time AV's-- Yes or No? (I say NO)

Hello.As you mentioned. . . the answer is NO!The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false positives". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Positives: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.If you have any specific questions about this I'd be happy to try and answer them.

A lot of knowledgeable people are fine with Avira, Avast, and a couple of other free anti virus apps. And truth be told, for many folks they are just fine.

The speed and ability to complete an anti-virus or anti-malware scan depends on a variety of factors.The program itself and how its scanning engine is designed to scan: using a signature database vs heuristic scanning or a combination of both.Options to scan for spyware, adware, riskware and potentially unwanted programs (PUPS).Options to scan memory, boot sectors, registry and alternate data streams (ADS).Type of scan performed: Deep, Quick or Custom scanning.What action has to be performed when malware is detected.A computer's hard drive size.Disk used capacity (number of files to include temporary files) that have to be scanned.Types of files (.exe, .dll, .sys, .cab, archived, compressed, packed, email, etc) that are scanned.Whether external drives are included in the scan.Competition for and utilization of system resources by the scanner.Other running processes and programs in the background.Interference from malware.Interference from the user.Some anti-virus programs are resource heavy even while they are not scanning.

During the past few months I have spent a bunch of my time removing malware from my Dad's rig (with the generous help of techguy.org wizards). When I have to do this from 3000 miles away via logmein or over the phone, it's especially time consuming.

At home, I use a hardware firewall and not a hell of a lot else. I don't have many problems. My Dad is 80 and he sometimes clicks on things he shouldn't click on.

I am perfectly willing to pay for a good program that has a chance of preventing things like XP Antivirus2008 and Registry Defender (Trojan.Vundo.H) from getting on his rig. Most of us are constantly searching for the best freeware solutions. In this case, I would be perfectly happy to buy something.

Which program or combination of programs) would you buy if you wanted to give yourself really good real-time protection, as well as the ability to run a scan when something goes wrong and fix the problem?

I ran malwarebytes today when I got Registry Defender, and it seems to have cleared up the problem (until the next re-boot??). However, it took us hours to deal with XP Antivirus2008.

Hello and welcome to TSF, paulrenno!

I currently have NOD32, and that's all.

You only need one of each; Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Firewall.

So; SuperAntiSpyWare, AVG, and choose another Firewall because ZoneAlarm is horrible - it causes more trouble than it's worth; BSOD's out the ear.

They will interact, one wants to defend your system from viruses, they other will spyware, the other will firewall, and if two see the same thing you'll get dialogs saying 'clean it', 'remove it', etc - it's all too confusing, and it leaves you vulnerable.

Hi erichan,

What hardware, i.e. processor, motherboard, etc. do you have?

If you do not know, you can download Everest Home (freeware) from:
http://www.lavalys.com in order to find out in the Quick or Full Reports.

I assume the 'real time clock' may be a feature of the motherboard? Is that correct? If so, any driver would need to be downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer website which Everest will denote in its report.

I looked in my device manager listing, and do not have a 'real time clock' device listed, so it must be either an additional piece of hardware or as I assumed above a feature of your motherboard. If it is related to another piece of hardware, then that manufacturer's website should have the driver for download available.

Do the Everest download/install/run before the following:

One thing you can do is to delete the driver for the 'real time clock' in your device manager, reboot to let the system rediscover the new hardware, and load a default driver for it with its PnP.

I see in many places the recommendation to run a single firewall and a single AV program. I have run more than one at a time and not sure why it's recommended to have only one. Reasons given that I saw were:
(1) they will conflict ... but I did not notice conflicts - things seem to run for me, programs seem to work, what am I missing?
(2) it might be actually LESS secure to use two firewalls - I don't understand why - can someone explain?
(3) it's a pain since you have to configure same things in two places - Agreed but not a problem in my case
(4) any others?

I've run different combinations, e.g. zonealarm + McAfee (both firewall hips and on-access anti-virus) + avira.

A:Two firewalls? Two real-time AVs?

The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms". It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection. In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause:1) False Alarms: When the anti virus software tells you that your PC has a virus when it actually doesn't.2) System Performance Problems: Your system may lock up due to both products attempting to access the same file at the same time.

My inquiry here is regarding using McAfee AV software AND the Malwarebytes PRO Anti-Malware software BOTH in real-time scanning mode. The quote shown below was provided by Quietman7 in response to another post. For clarification...am I correct that I should NOT have the Malwarebytes Pro Anti-Malware program since it runs in real-time scanning mode like the McAfee AV does?

"As a general rule, using more than one anti-spyware program like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SuperAntispyware, Windows Defender, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, Spyware Terminator, etc. will not conflict with each other or your anti-virus if using only one of them for real-time protection and others as stand-alone scanners. In fact, doing so increases your protection coverage without causing the same kind of conflicts or affecting the stability of your system that can occur when using more than one anti-virus. The overlap of protection from using different signature databases will aid in detection and removal of more threats when scanning your system for malware. However, competing tools may provide redundant alerts which can be annoying and/or confusing as a result of the overlap in protection."

Thanks very much for any enlightenment!

Hi there
as a Tecnet suscriber I've been using MS'es Forefront Client Security (it's the big brother to MSE) -- very small footprint, definitions updated almost daily and it really works well.

It can be installed in Stand alone mode on individual work stations and that's what I've done.

For technet suscribers I'd recommend this - as it's Corporate Strength security. Non technet suscribers can trial it for 120 days too.

Here's the Real Time protection options you can select.

IMO this piece of software tops all the others out there currently and certainly doesn't hog the machine at all.

Hey quietman7 what would you recommend for a real time anti-virus? I have seen here that some people like avast or some
like super anti spyware but what would you recommend.

A:real time anti-virus

I'm not quietman7 but he already answered this before:Choosing an anti-virus is a matter of personal preference, your technical ability and experience, features offered, the amount of resources utilized, how it may affect system performance and what will work best for your system. A particular anti-virus that works well for one person may not work as well for another. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your use. There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone. Another factor to consider is whether you want to use a paid for product or free alternative. My personal choice is NOD32 Anti-Virus if choosing a paid for program or avast! Free Antivirus if choosing a free alternative.No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using several anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.

I'm currently researching upgrades/alternatives to our server backup. I'm
looking for something as close to "Real-Time" data replication.

Replication should do the following:

1. Replicate only the file changes
2. Replicate file permissions/ownership (NTFS)
3. Replicate all other file attributes: File creation, File modification,
etc.
4. Replicate files regardless of lock/open status
5. Ability to detect when a server has died and "take over" the share.
6. Ability to postpone replication of file deletion until, at least, a
backup has ran.
7. Ability to detect when a server has died and run a custom batch script.
8. Ability to specify what to replicate (Not have to choose an entire
volume, but, instead, certain folders/files)
9. Ability to create separate replication instances (being able
to replicate different files in different ways)
10. Notification of problems with replication via e-mail.
11. Ability to specify bandwidth limits
12. Failover capability

If your backup setup is somewhere in these lines, please share what software
and hardware you're using. And if possible, overall cost $$

I've been using McAfee Antivirus for a long time and have been satisfied with it until fairly recently. Some time ago, the real-time scanning started to become a real(-time) pain, however. It keeps interrupting and slowing down everything whenever I am surfing the web. Writing this post, for example, the scanner peaks on and off whenever I type something and I have to wait a few seconds before I can continue typing... It is really annoying! My question is this: is this what one should expect from today's antivirus software in order to protect user's from the execution of malicious code, or has McAfee overdone it? Are there other anti-virus products that supply a comparable protection, but don't interfere as much with ordinary computer use?

A:McAfee real-time scanning

Update: the problems that I were experiencing with the real-time scanner have improved after uninstalling other anti-malware products and reinstalling McAfee. I still think that the real-time scanning consumes too much CPU power, however, but at least the problem is more manageable now...

I manage IT for a small company, and company management insist on a backup solution befitting of a much larger operation. After days of research and testing at least a dozen different backup systems, I can't seem to find an almost idiot-proof solution that will do what they want.

The brief is this...

There is 1 Win Server 2008 R2 server to be backed up. There are 2 USB hdd's, to be rotated daily, the most recent backup being taken offsite overnight. The server is also always-on, our accounting system, user's Outlook profiles, etc, are all stored on there, so it must be able to backup open files.

Day 1 (Disk 1): Perform full backup of system drive. Swap out Disk 1 for Disk 2.
Day 2 (Disk 2): Perform full backup of system drive. Swap out Disk 2 for Disk 1.
Day 3 (Disk 1): Backup incrementally, in real time (or near real time intervals) from where it left off when Disk 1 was last removed.
Day 4 (Disk 2): Backup incrementally, in real time (or near real time intervals) from where it left off when Disk 2 was last removed.
Day 5 onwards: Repeat days 3 and 4.
I'll be leaving the company soon, and they will no longer have an in-house IT manager, so the drive swap will be performed by one of the other company managers. Therefore it needs to be idiot-proof, so at most the user has to hit a stop button, swap the drives, and hit start again.

Are you by chance running another AV on the system? If so, this could cause a conflict. By default, if you are running another AV, Defender should be disabled.

There's a chance that something could be corrupt. Try running a SFC /SCANNOW. Be sure to run it 3X since it doesn't always fix everything 1st or 2nd time around.

This is driving me nuts.

I recently (finally) installed Service Pack 3 to my XP Professional system. Now it seems that whatever realtime anti-virus scanner I employ, it's CPU utilization approaches 90% or more whenever I open an Explorer window. Displaying the contents of any folder can sometimes take up to a minute to complete while Explorer paints the icons for the files (until it's done, each file has the generic icon and cannot be clicked).

I've switched from Avast Antivirus to AVG Free with the same results. I even did a completely fresh install of Windows XP with SP3 slipstreamed in to no avail.

The only workaround I've come up with is to disable the real-time scanner, which is not ideal.

Google has not been helpful in this matter. Does anyone have any ideas?

PS
This also occurs sometimes when installing a new program, especially if it's a large program with lots of ancillary files.

A:Real Time Scanners Use 90% or More of CPU After Installing SP3

Have you tried using MSCONFIG to disable all of your startup processes except the AV to see if one of those other running processes may be screwing things up? Or disable all startup processes and manually start the AV real time scanner?

Some other process conflicting somehow could cause it. Just shooting in the dark, but one of your ram chips could be bad too. I've seen bad memory cause some extremely unlikely problems.

Can Anyone suggest any goot RTS Games? I'm a big fan of the Command & Conquer series. I first saw it when I visited a friend who had Red Alert installed on his computer. I started getting it as a reward every time I brought home a good report card. I loved being able to create a base, gather resources, and research/upgrade technology. Of course, with the release of C&C4, I've started looking at other game series to get my RTS fill. One addition I have found particularly enjoyable, especially after Kane's Wrath, is the Risk aspect (I call it risk because it reminds me of the game Risk). Empire Earth 3 and Empire: Total War are, so far, the only games that include a Risk gameplay. But, at the same time, I would prefer to have an RTS that includes modern/Sci-Fi weaponry. If I have to play through different eras to achieve modern weaponry, I can live with that.

Here's my prerequisites:
1. In the vein of C&C (a must)
2. Modern/Sci-Fi weaponry (at least up to steampunk or WWII; not imperative, but preferable)
3. Risk style gameplay (it would be a nice addition to the game)

Before you post, I have already looked at several RTSs and this is my feeling about them:
Empire Earth III (placement of buildings and moving units around would get rather clunky at times)

Somewhere in the last few 8.1 updates, OneDrive sync has changed. It now does not autosync after updating/adding files in the OneDrive folder. Before, it would act like dropbox. It would autosync the folders almost immediately (usually within a few seconds). Now it apparently does not autosync at all. I just did a test of updating a file and deleting a folder. When I hover over the OneDrive icon in the tray, it displays "Files are up to date, last synced 10 minutes ago". If I click on the icon, and then click on sync, it will sync immediately and correctly. It is like whatever service that monitors the OneDrive folder is either not running or has been removed by Microsoft. Has anyone else noticed this problem, and if so, is there a fix?

I'd like an opinion if I may. Having carefully studied BleepingComputer's advice on anti-virus and anti-malware tools, I uninstalled Norton Internet Security (yes, using the official tool), and installed instead:

Microsoft Security Essentials
MalwarebytesPro
WinPatrol
Cloudmark DesktopOne for email spam

The only one I paid for was MalwarebytesPro. I initially set up real-time protection on both MSE and Malwarebytes. I had zero problems and once Norton was gone the system came up perceptibly faster. However, recently I reviewed the anti-virus section and found that in one paragraph it says you should only run real-time protection on ONE anti-virus program at a time; and in another place it says that you should always run MalwarebytesPro's real-time protection. Right now MalwarebytesPro is NOT running real-time protection; it is running a scheduled quick scan every day. Should I turn it back on?? I am confused.

I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop runs Win7 Pro 64-bit, the laptop runs Win7 Ultimate 64-bit. Since I don't do local email on the laptop it doesn't have Cloudmark.

The short answer is yes, you should install another antivirus;
 
Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware ToolsAn anti-virus program alone does not offer enough protection and does not provide comprehensive protection. It cannot prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Anti-virus software is inherently reactive...meaning it usually finds malware after a computer has been infected.Anti-virus and anti-spyware (anti-malware) programs each perform different tasks as it relates to computer security and malware detection. Essentially, they look for and remove different types of malicious threats. In simplistic terms, an anti-virus program will focus on viruses, worms andTrojans while an anti-spyware program tends to focus more on spyware, adware and PUPS (potentially unwanted programs)?. However, there can be some overlap in functionality and detection features depending on the program's scanning engine, how the vendor defines a specific threat and what Naming Standards are used. ...

As the title says really, is my MSE real time protection actually working ?

I ran an exe file on purpose a few days ago knowing it had some mallware / spyware built into it. I did it to test MSE. But nothing happened.

Now a few days later i decide to run a custom scan on my xp partition, my windows 7 partition and a pen drive. These drives had 4 trojans and two java exploits in total, which MSE cleaned.

But how come the real time protection did'nt pick these up ?

Or even doing a quick scan did'nt pick these up either ?

Help, i don't feel safe anymore

A:MSE not sure if real time protection is working

First of all, colinw, why in heavens name would you intentionally run an .exe file you know is bad? Personally, I don't consider that a wise move.

As to why the real-time protection didn't catch the install, much depends on your other settings and the permission you provided during the installation. If you have UAC turned off or allowed the UAC elevation prompt during install, you took it upon your own hands to provide the program with permission. It is also possible that what you installed was not in detection at the time of installation but was subsequently added.

I have had to do two complete system recoveries because there have been problems with the clock and then nothing works!
I have a Toshiba 1800 laptop using ME.
The first time both the time and the date were wrong, the second time the time and day/month were correct but the year was 2006, both times I put them right and shortly after the whole thing went pear shaped.
I would have expected errors/warnings if the battery was getting low - none but everything stopped working.
Can anyone throw any light on Real Time Clock batteries please?

Sounds like the power has run out. just leave the laptop switched on for a couple of hours and see if that helps.

Good tidings to you all, Bleepers great and small!Humble supplicant towards almighty root, I come in search of knowledge and advice.The Windmill : I manage the computers of our community center, where we also offer computer assistance, coaching, instruction, and service. I would like to reevaluate the software I use to clean and protect systems both inhouse and on client computers, as I recently found out (feedback goes to management, not to us) there are clients reporting "too many programs", "too complicated", or "I don't know what to do with popup/dialogbox X from your program". The Past : For several years now (afaicr) I always implemented the same steps after cleaning computers : remove IE, install Chrome, add AdBlock Plus (recently switched to uBlock Origin) & TrafficLight extensions, install Panda free for AV, and Spybot for malware. When a computer turned up something stronger than MBAM and Spybot could handle, I worked through HJT logs with Geeks2Go. I picked those programs from best reviewed lists, choosing Panda purely for the cloud scanning, ABP based on user count, Ublock Origin because ABP cited UBO's superior product as their reason to shut down, and TrafficLight because the green=good, red=bad icon struck me as idiot-proof. The Quest : After spending all of this morning googling comprehensive real-time low-impact virus and malware scanners, it dawned on me somewhere around lunch that I was tilting at windmills, having turned u...

A:LF Low-impact Real-time Security

Hi InservioLetum It seems like you're giving the customers the choice of having a free Antivirus, or a paid one. So in that case, shouldn't you want recommendations for both? Also, a lot of free Antivirus (if not all of them) will have prompts that promote the paid version of it so if the users you assist get annoyed by it, then they should consider a paid product. Also, pretty much every Antivirus runs on Windows XP to Windows 10, however a lot of them will discontinue their support for Windows XP soon (a bunch of them in 2016). Also when it comes to Windows XP, free Antivirus just won't cut it anymore, the best protection will come from paid Antivirus programs. Are they ready to pay for that? There's a lot of questions that needs to be answered here since you'll be dealing with a lot of users, a lot of different systems, a lot of demands, etc.

I have tried lots of suggested things in this and other forums to get this fixed but it hasn't worked.
 
I can not find any sign of infection, but a few months ago the real time antivirus portion of my antivirus at the time (Microsoft Security Essentials) failed. It said it wasn't turned on. When I tried to enable it, it would just shut off again. I uninstalled and tried Panda, I was looking for something "light" since this is an old machine. Same thing, the real time portion will not stay enabled. I uninstalled Panda and tried Immunet. Same thing, the real time portion would not stay enabled. I uninstalled Immunet and ran specific uninstallers for every antivirus I can remember ever having installed. I believe the only ones I ever tried previously were AVG and Kaspersky. Then I used CCcleaner (I am an advanced user) and tried some of the other tools like Malwarebytes just to be sure I wasn't missing an infection. I can't find any issues.

Hi,
I few weeks ago I recieved an email from a contact I know through Hotmail and when I opened it my computer was infected with 'Vista Anti Virus 2012'. I found a post on here about how to remove it and did so.

I downloaded 'Spybot S+D' and ran a full scan, which found nothing wrong.

Any ideas? I use Windows Vista.

Okay, so I'm having some trouble with my computer that I can't quite fix...
About a week ago a lightning storm rolled through and caused some issues.
My computer is plugged into a surge protector, however, the storm caused the power to turn off and on several times, my computer would automatically restart every time the power came back on. After realizing I had left my computer on (I was busy in another room) I hurried and unplugged it (I know that shutting it down before unplugging it is the proper thing to do but the computer did not even have enough time to fully boot between the intervals of power outage).
So now for the problem, every time I boot my computer I get a black screen with a few boot options, an error message (Loss of Power to the Real Time Clock), and at the top left corner, MBs counting up from 0 to 4096 (I have 4GB of RAM so I'm guessing this has something to do with memory).
After it reaches 4096 I get the option to save changes (with F1), after this I can boot the computer. Then everything works perfectly normal (still plays Fallout :D) except for the date being 1/3/1980 and the time always being wrong (although the time varies every time I turn it on).
If I correct the time and date it only goes back when I restart the computer, also, I can't load certain websites like gmail because "your clock is behind" and I don't know how to just align the time exactly through the internet...

If you need to know any more information about my comp... Read more

Hi everyone I have just installed my new internet security programs, which has now made my PC speed up noticeably probably because CA took up too much RAM. Anyway, I have AVG free Edition and I was just wondering whether it has real-time protection. If it does, how do you enable it? Thankyou!

PS: This was probably a weird question to ask, I am just not sure if it has real-time.

A:Does Avg Free Have Real-time Protection

Which Avg Free are you referring to? The anti-virus or the anti-spyware?

If the AV, then yes it has real-time protection. I don't know how to activate it because I haven't used it for some years.

If you are referring to the anti-spyware, the free version does NOT have real-time protection once the trial period ends.

I am looking for a free program that gives me live protection against spyware. Today I use SpywareBlaster and Spybot's Immunize function, however I need something in adition to this. I read the recomandations in Grinler's post, but as far as I can see, he only lists 1 such program, SpywareGuard. Are there any alternatives to this program, or is it simply the best? I've seen some reviews on download.com, and about half of them are negative. Looks like they "never" update the definitions.
So, in your opinion, what's the best free alternative there is?
Or are there a superb program that's worth paying for?

Starting today, 12/27/13, my real time scanning takes a long time to load in McAfee's virus software. It has been working great until today, I ran Mcafee scan plus malwarebytes to see if any virus was on my computer, it found none. When I downloaded my current definitions, it asked me to close my Mcafee so it can update it. This never happened before, I thought it was loading a newer version, so I closed it out. I keep getting a prompt "your computer is at risk". So I re-booted, went to Mcafee's main screen, and I saw that the real time scanning was loading, it loaded, then it started to try to load again.
Anything happening lately with Mcafee's virus protection software that would cause this? I see I have the file loading twice in my config's "startup". I unchecked one, still did the same, so I rechecked it, and removed the other check from the duplicate. Did the same, so I put both back on.
Thanks
