My laptop is set to hibernate after 1 hour of inactivity.
When the laptop was "awoken" Bitdefender flashed a 2 second alert that "palemoon.exe" is a threat ... no option to make a choice.
"palemoon.exe" (incl the correct path) was/is listed in In Free Bitdefender Exclusions ... so much for BD reliability not impressed at all
PM is not listed/running (in TaskManager)
I assumed the best thing to do is to copy the PM profile to a safe location -> uninstall PM -> install a fresh download -> replace the new profile with my original.
But "KillCopy" cannot create a folder on either the desktop nor a USB drive. MS Copy has the same problem, so I dont have a reliable backup of settings etc.
What to do next ?
- I have a bootable Linux Mint. Can I use Linux to copy the old profile onto a USB stick to retrieve my passwords/settings/library/cookies/exclusions ... etc, before uninstalling PM.
- Can I copy "palemoon.exe" from another machine and slot it into the existing PM installed location
Subject to using the same PM version
- if the only solution is to copy individual passwords/settings/library/cookies/exclusions ... etc; I would appreciate a list of all the file names that I need to copy. :;
eg, For memory I think passwords consists of 2 files although sometime in 2017 password (?) structure changed
I would appreciate some knowledgeable help, thank you
