    I have been evaluating Wormguard for a couple of days now. Before I buy it I would like to know:

    1) Will I get a free upgrade to the new version 4 when it comes out?

    2) What advantages does Wormguard have over "Net-Wormer" and "Surfinguard"?

    3) Is it possible or safe to use Wormguard with either or both of the above programmes?

    4)What new features will be in the new version?

    5) Where can I find independant reviews of Wormguard?

    Thanks for any help

    If you purchase a license for WG£ you will get WG4 for free

    2) What advantages does Wormguard have over "Net-Wormer" and "Surfinguard"?

    Sorry I don't use them

    3) Is it possible or safe to use Wormguard with either or both of the above programmes?

    WG usually works with most programmes as it is not a resident programme as such and is only activated when a file is loaded

    4)What new features will be in the new version?

    WG4 will have a new engine under the bonnet, regularly updated database,
    a tray icon & other, as yet, indisclosed items


    5) Where can I find independant reviews of Wormguard?

    http://www.keypost.com/safehex.htm Not exactly a review but maybe useful

    Thanks for any help

    Hi ChrisP
    I don't use Net-Wormer and SurfinGuard myself but from what I noticed from their websites is this:
    1. WormGuard has an option to have a file always allowed (or blocked) to execute, where I couldn't find that option in Net-Wormer
    2. Surfinguard maintains a list of safe executables where WormGuard does a scan just before a file will be executed.
    hope this helps,
    Dolf
