    hey

    i need some kind of webfilter that filters java applets, activex scripts and automatic dialer downloading etc. i have tried most if not all the popupblockers etc, and webwasher and ad subtact. they all can block these things, but not on a per site basis. i need one that, when i visit a site with for instance an activex thingy on it, opens a small window saying: "allow once" , "block once" or "always allow activeX from this paricular site" or " always block from this site"

    you know what i mean? outpost firewall does this, exactly how i want it, but now im in need of a standalone app for this purpose. can anyone help?

    I've tried to find the same thing because I wanted to break away from Outpost Pro and use Sygate, but Sygate doesn't have any of that stuff.. It's not easy.. I think Ad-Subtract Pro comes pretty close, but without the active x stuff.. Maybe someone will make one!
    :p

  7. I don't think Script Defender is waht Tahoma is looking for. He wants something that questions java-script, java, active x, and other stuff, similar to Norton Firewall 2002 or Outpost Firewall Pro

    I've already asked Tahoma's question.. follow the following thread:

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=5371

    I gave up looking. My solution was to totally uninstall Outpost Pro (paid version) and install the newly updated Zone Alarm Pro..3.5+..

    In my opinion, the privacy features are much better to handle with Zone Alarm. There's good and bad in both of them.. but that's for another new thread...
