    Please do. Like to know how their AV is without D+(HIPS).

    Sounds like DriveSentry is not much of a scanner, but maybe it is better at prevention?

    What was the issue with drivesentry in the past? Did support end for the free program? I cannot remember, just know there was a big mess about it not too awful long ago- maybe 6 months back or so.

    That's is a fact.
    Plus some confusion if a freeware version was still going to be offered?
    Questions about pricing and upgrade?
    I really had high hopes for this one.

    They had cute avatars however.

    Lol, Come on man, don't you know where the edit button is. You have nearly 4000 posts/replies and most of them are the same pattern. You post and then a minute later you add something that could have been edited in.

    Do an Dynamic test... TBH as soon as I read you were just running the scanner I didn't read anything more.

    By doing an "on-demand test" Your not testing DS's Behaviour/HIPS which is a part of their "tri-layer" approach.

    Not testing this app at it's full potential.
