Quicken 2015 HIPS error message

Recommended Posts

Running ESET Smart Security 8 and Quicken Premier 2015.  I have HIPS set to Smart Mode.


Whenever I start Qucken, I get the following HIPS prompt to allow access to the following:


Application type: C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken\qw.exe


Access type:  Delete file


Target:   C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Startup\Billminder.lnk


I click on Allow Access and Create Rule.  The same HIPS prompt appears again.  I click on Allow Access again, and the prompt finally goes away.


I have multiple rules for this file in HIPS, but it doesn't seem to make a difference, the twin prompts always appear.  I tried switching HIPS to Learning Mode and launched Quicken so ESS would 'remember', but when I re-enable Smart Mode, the prompts come back.


Interestingly, there is no Billminder.lnk in the target folder.  I have had the Startup folder open in File Explorer before, during and after launching Quicken and the file never appears.


Any ideas as to what might be going on?
