    Does TDS display a pop-up alert box when a positive identication is made or when is block using exec protection or is everything contained within the console. I thought I had once seen a popup like you would get with a firewall but I can't get it to occur again. Can someone fill me in.

    Also on another note why doesn't exec protection work when invoking the .exe file from a command prompt rather than clicking the icon?

    Try this: TDS3 Help - F1- Find- popup - Trojan disinfection. This shows the various screens & poups when a trojan is found.

    Hmmm.....help file what's that :oops:. I actually looked through it but couldn't find what I was looking. But there it is. I was looking for the alert that occurred when a trojan was found in memory. I didn't realize that was the only time that popup occurred. Thanks for helping out Pilli :)

    This is one of the shortfalls of the Microsoft execution hook we're using in Wormguard3, unfortunately it does not have the capacity to intercept files executed from DOS/command prompt. We've already solved this problem for TDS4/Wormguard4 by developing a kernel-mode driver (sys and vxd) and VDM. All Wormguard3 customers will be entitled to a free upgrade.

    Best regards,
