Day 2 with oPatchFREE running and no issues at all with Qsel, which was my canary in the coal mine. Not sure what to say, except that if this continues, so shall I continue with 0Patch.
Thanks. I think at this point I will wait until they update their agent, which at least needs a fix for the sync issue I mentioned earlier.

maxseven,

Well, I am thinking too about removing 0Patch... Qsel is once again failing to load. Not sure I understand your sync problem, but as we both have issues, it would be good if they can fix it. Are you going to go to their blog or whatever to report this?

0patch support

Hi everyone on this thread! I am Mitja Kolsek, co-founder of 0patch.

User nord899 was kind enough to notify us of this thread and some functional issues that are being discussed here and suspected to be caused by 0patch. I think it's best to troubleshoot these issues via our support channel and then bring resolutions back here for everyone to read. So I'm inviting all users suspecting 0patch is causing any problem to contact us: [email protected], or Help Center.

Meanwhile, some feedback possibly related to issues being discussed:

1) 0patch Agent has, in the past, been guilty of occasionally stealing focus from other apps when displaying popups. We fixed this to our best abilities and stopped getting reports but in the complexity behind Windows there may still be remnants of this issue somewhere. In general, if you set popups to the quietest level ("Inform me only about important system events"), that should minimize this issue if you have it. Also, the stolen focus was always associated with our popup being shown at that exact moment.

2) 0patch causing some apps to not run: While we made sure to minimize any interference with running processes, it can still happen that our agent DLL's mere presence in the process, and the single hook that we set, cause a problem in the process. For instance, this happened with Mozilla Firefox 72 and prompted us to issue this article:Mozilla Firefox 72 can crash upon launching when 0patch Agent is installed – Help Center. This may happen with other apps as well and we'd like to investigate every instance users may stumble upon. As a first course of action, affected users can exclude the affected app from being injected with our DLL as described in the above article about Firefox.

3) Problems with printing: Some Windows users have reported that Microsoft's workaround for CVE-2020-0674 broke printing for them. Our micropatch for the same issue (0patch Blog: Micropatching a Workaround for CVE-2020-0674) avoided many of Microsoft recommendation's negative side effects including this one, as far as we could test it. But if you suspect 0patch is causing problems with printing, try disabling it (you don't have to uninstall) or just exclude the affected app from patching in 0patch Console -> Applications -> Patched Applications and see if the problem goes away.

Looking forward to solving these issues,
Mitja

Ha, I have an email from you Mitja about an earlier problem and so am glad to have your presence here! My issue with FileCenter is hard to describe, but I will reinstall 0patch again this week and work with you via [email protected] to try to resolve it.

Hi everyone, to my understanding this forum doesn't send an email for every reply to the thread so please understand if there will be no timely replies here as it's becoming impossible to regularly check out all the places 0patch is being discussed. Thanks for your willingness to experiment with 0patch and please report all issues to our support.
Best, Mitja

mitjakolsek,

Much thanks for replying and joining the forum. To my mind, it would be useful if you could post some of the other places where 0patch is talked about besides this one.

maxseven,

I used the support email to tell them about my issue with Qsel. I also checked the console to see if Qsel was mentioned as having a patch installed (it wasn't listed). Saw no way to exclude Qsel, but perhaps I haven't learned yet how to work the console.

Sure, Nick. AskWoody has a lot of posts: Topic: Worth considering: 0patch for Win7 after January 2020 @ AskWoody

Born's blog (in German) also: 0patch: Fix fur Internet Explorer 0-day-Schwachstelle CVE-2020-0674 | Borns IT- und Windows-Blog

There are many other places with fewer posts, mostly discussing similar things as here and in the above places.

Thanks,
Mitja

Mitja,

It might help if you can explain for everyone here how to exclude an executable. I see no way in the 0PatchFREE console to do this.

Thanks
