General Features (1.6 and earlier):
Newest Update (1.7) Adds:
-NEW: Addition of "Add Folder" option (with many features). REQUESTED FEATURE
-To watch important system files for changes, modifications, or tampering (by malicious programs).
-To watch Anti-Virus program files, Anti-Trojan program files, anti-spyware program files, firewall files, etc. for tampering by rogue programs, and to notify if such action takes place.
-Now, FileChecker can log these events to the NT event log, and can run as a Windows service (for greater security).
-You can also use SMTP (e-mail) alerting, to send important information on file changes and deletions to any e-mail address.
Built on the basis of: Ad-AwareChecker v1.2.
NOTE: If you have Ad-Aware Checker, please uninstall it before installing FileChecker. There is a known conflict between Ad-Aware Checker and FileChecker. FileChecker can perform the same functions as Ad-Aware Checker (and more).
Notes on use: It is not recommended to specify files like Anti-Virus virus definitions files in the FileChecker database. Since these files are updated quite often (and even possibly auto-updated in the background) it could cause many warnings. However, it IS recommended to add the main executable of your anti-virus program (at a minimum) to the FileChecker database.
