    A new malware-removing program. It's BETA, but could be a good assistant to MBAM.

    It's really BETA. I have some issues on my Windows 8 computer:
    1. I've tried to start the program as Admin, it wanted to crash my system.
    2. I've tried to update but an error occured.

    Based on some of the screenshots they've clearly been "inspired" by MBAM. The settings window is practically identical.

    Sorry i dont see the similarity.
    Of course malwarebytes has set the standard to which others should follow so naturally comparison is inevitable.

    If i can give you an example...

    If a new anti virus uses green in its interface would we say it were inspired by kaspersky.?...lol of course not.

    Problem is that due to the lack of originality in user interface design they all to some degree look very similar.:)

    You are clearly an agitator, so I'm not sure why I'm even bothering to respond, but here goes.

    9-Lab Settings:
    Code:
    Terminate Internet Explorer during threat removal
    Anonymously report threat statistics
    Automatically save log file after scan completes
    Open log file immediately after saving
    
    Run Flash Scan on Windows start
    Create right click context menu
    
    Warn if database is outdated by:
    
    Language:
    
    MBAM Settings:
    Code:
    Terminate Internet Explorer during threat removal.
    Anonymously report usage statistics.
    Create right click context menu.
    Automatically save log file after scan completes.
    Open log file immediately after saving.
    
    Warn if database is outdated by:
    
    Language:
    
    Is it that MBAM uses periods in their dialog that makes the two so indistinguishable to you? o_O

    How on earth can i be clearly an agitator.o_O

    I have given a clear and concise analogy of the basic problems which interface designers face.

    When i first saw these screenshots of this new application i did not immediately think that MBAM was a clear inspiration.

    Your perception of similarity appears to have something seriously lacking.:cool:

    I didn't immediately notice the settings similarity to MBAM, but you are quite right.

    There are myriad examples sprinkled all over these forums. I'm not going to take the time to dig around for examples, but this recent thread is one that wasn't too hard to find.
    You have to be able to look beyond a GUI's color scheme to notice. In hindsight, I should have written out my observation more clearly. I had no idea anyone would think I was comparing colors or layout when the text itself is so glaringly similar.

    It really makes me question the credibility of this product. I can understand getting your inspiration from someone else, but change up the wording or at the very least include a reference in the footnotes. ;)

    Obviously speaking the truth is a form of agitation to you.

    This product looks nothing like malwarebytes.
    This is my last comment on this thread because as usual it has fallen into personal comments and conjecture.:ninja:

    I think I'll wait a while before trying it out. Except for a couple of user comments at hxxp://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/9lab-Removal-Tool-x64/1366702020/2 there is hardly any reviews on it. There's a write-up on CNET (the same as on the developer's website) but no reviews yet.

    Maybe someone from MBAM can comment. After all they've been copied / stolen from before.

    Hi

    I have Some Questions for you

    1. Which Engines are in the 9-Lab Removal Tool

    "Removal Tool" is our standalone product, we do not use any outside engines.

    2. Can you add the Engines to virustotal.com

    Right now we have a BETA version, this is why it is too early to
    consider adding our engine to Virustotal. But we surely have this in mind.

    3. How can i send you Files for check or analyze;

    We're working over our site and will release a new version within about
    a month. There will be an option to send us files for analysis

    Thank you for attention to our product.

    We didn't expect to receive such a large number of notifications, and
    this is why we're answering with delay. For contacting us you may use
    email support@9-lab.com.

    It seems the its update has issues. Its update server doe snot work most time and sometimes it downloads. The rest is fine and is as good as malwarebyte in detection in my tests. Only if they fix the updating issue.

    At the expense of trying to keep on topic i respectively would like to challenge 9Labs another alternative project in their better interest i think that would no doubt attract an immediate audience and more.

    A new pure classical HIPS is sorely lacking especially for x64 windows systems

    Maybe a project better suited to address the current.absence of one where other vendors only half impliment and is limited in their monitoring capabilities as it stands.

    Can't hurt to try.
