    Hi Blaze,

    There is a thread which tries to explain what NIS File Check tries to do:
    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=545

    In short:
    you can use it to see whether any kind of file is changed on your system, or is deleted, or is new.
    With "any kind of file" I mean: all .exe files and/or .dll files on your system, etc.
    But if NIS File Check tells you that something is changed (or new, or deleted), then it is up to you to decide whether that was a legitimate change or not.
    For example:
    a legitimate change: you downloaded new definitions for your virus-scanner or an update for your Operating System (Windows).
    a illegitimate change: you have suddenly a virus or a Trojan on your system.
