    Hello,

    New tool FREE for private users.

    Abtrusion Protector protects your computer by keeping track of all the executable files (applications, OCX controls, dynamic link libraries, drivers etc.) that are installed on your computer. Whenever the operating system tries to load a piece of software, Abtrusion Protector first verifies that the file is allowed to execute. If the file is not recognized or is not allowed to run, Abtrusion Protector prevents the operating system from loading it.

    FYI : Does NOT prevent PCaudit.exe even when set on deny in the settings.

    Rgds,

    Jack - Thanks for the link. That's an interesting piece of software. It works on the same principle of a firewall it looks like. Instead of not allowing the outbound connection, it doesn't allow execution of a program unless it's "approved." Interesting.

    Hi JacK!

    I found this to be interesting and was looking forwards to trying it. Unfortunately, my OS is "out-of-date" by their standards. Oh well.

    Hi John ;)

    Yes, it is but still some weaknesses : it can be cheated by maskerading and no uninstaller : you need to fiddle with the Registry.

    SSM works partially on the same principle and some other apps too.

    Rgds,
