Rootkits:
Diamondcs sell Processguard which protects against this. I bought mine about 6 months ago but was waiting for a stable version. Looks like they have just about nearly done it, but I was waiting a couple more weeks just to see how stable it is. Well I won't wait any longer, I'm installing it tommorow, ver 3.050

For bugs, etc:
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=13
Background: This company also sells TDS-3 which is one of the top ant-trojan scanners out there with updates everyday and support on the Wilders forum is always first class.

AVG Grisoft has updated from V6 to v7. This is easy to install, and just installs over the top of V6 for those who use this already. V7 looks like a far better product. I installed over v6 and it immediately found 4 Trojans that v6 had missed, and whereas V6 had difficulty removing some Trojans - the various Dumador ones for example, V7 removes them without hassle. All still free.

If anyone has not yet been convinced of the greater need for PC protection then maybe this will further convince them.

For the most secure networks, you want a firewall, antivirus software, and spyware killers. I'm sure you all have these. But there is a new concept in the world of security. This is behavioral security software. This software looks for behaviors in your system, which anomolies, and these are potential attacks thats are new and never detected. The only company I know of that offers this kind of software is Whole Security.

Anyone tried McAfee anti-spyware?I'm more likely to buy a product from a name I recognize and just wondered if anyone had tried it already?

Oatman,

How does Winpatrol work, once you have loaded it it says runs when you start up windows. How do you know its working.

Thanks,

Breadman

It continually scans your setup for unusual changes.It will alert you and ask if you want to allow
something new to run.

" WinPatrol uses a heuristic approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others download new reference files."

rossored started this thread Right, finally got round to doing a bit of tidying up on this thread ,so some of you regular Techy posters might notice that your post counts have dropped at bit (T333, Oaty etc - and me!).

If I've got rid of any posts that you distinctly remember as being incredibly useful, then let me know and I'll restore them, but the page count has now been cut by over 50% from 15 to 7 pages, so it should be easier to read and find what you're after.

Sygate Firewall

If you install a Sygate firewall should it produce a icon on your desktop.

Thanks,

rossored started this thread Agreed, Avast! is pretty good.

I actually use NOD32 these days, which is a pay subscription but only £23/year. It uses hardly any resources, runs a FULL scan in 5-10 minutes on my machine (Athlon XP3200+, 1GB RAM, 160GB SATA), costs less than Norton etc which I hate anyway, and has never missed a Virus in 7 years (unlike every other AV solution on the market).

AntiVir is still excellent and updates at least once a day automatically as soon as you go online. I think you can get your firewall to block the nag screen. I'll try and find out what to do.
