Yes, I'm with Bo and The Shadow. Shadow Defender is a great program, I use it every day. I find it very useful for trying new software that doesn't require a reboot or messing about with the configuration of particular software that I am not au fait with knowing that a reboot will have me back in known territory. I'm still with version Shadow Defender 188.8.131.525 on my XP sp3 and it's not caused any problems. I think that there are some minor glitches but nothing that would disturb me. Occasionally Window reverts to basic desktop when restarting after Shadow Mode....but just occasionally..and a couple of reboots usually sorts it out somehow. I use this version on XP as I regard this as the "classic" version and it suits me fine without the later cache memory add-ons etc (which I didn't see any benefit from because I only use 2 gbs of ram) I wasn't completely confident on how to set it and others seemed to have much more advanced systems...but when I played with it, it didn't seem to make any difference. Also the new registry update didn't apply to xp users so I went back to my old faithful 184.108.40.2065. Yes, last year was a good year for updates considering the long time prior to that with no communication at all, I think that Shadow Defender is so close to being optimized that I hope we get the updates...Everyone is on tenterhooks waiting for it but as I said in earlier posts I have not heard from Tony in months. Trjam has had an email, so Tony is still about. Last year there was a hard nosed, opportunistic, effort made to subvert the path of Shadow Defender commercially which I think may have led to the current quiet phase. Hundreds of giveaways might get some interest from software "collectors" but it does not further the long term life of the program or make more sales. There was a surge of interest after the giveway but just of the, "How do I work this thing?" sort of posts. Which soon levelled out to previous, niche, cult, devotee, interest as before. The Official Shadow defender Forum still has visitors every day and I made a section for Chinese speakers as there seemed to be a lot of interest in Chinese forums. The forum can read Traditional Chinese and another. Shadow Defender (on the whole) is a very stable program so not many people seem to have problems to be driving daily discussion and at the moment there are not enough active Official Shadow Defender Forum members to really get a good dialogue going to make the forum interesting. A lot of people use this Wilders thread to discuss Shadow Defender within this established security community and the Unofficial thread is really good, I read it every day myself. Hopefully things will improve (forum wise) as time goes on and we will achieve the daily throughput to make things interesting and nudge The Official Shadow Defender Forum back to life.
