    Oh my.....
    I don't know what to say..........

    I am SO much pleased with this news about a new version of ADinf32.

    One of the best file-integrity-checkers.

    Thanks TD for the news !!!!! :D :D :D

    How well does this program work with NOD32?

    Hi Ronjor,

    I have on my old Windows 98 SE box installed NOD32 resident, BOClean resident, and lots of other AV/AT on-demand.

    And ADinf32 Pro (there is a non-Pro and a Pro version) installed.

    I can assure you that there is not any problem !
    Why?
    ADinf32 is not a resident program (it does NOT run on-access), but you have to run it on-demand.
    That being said, it gives you the option to run it automatically at Windows start-up every day at a certain time.

    Both versions of ADinf32 are not free.
    ADinf32 is made by the same company that makes the AV Dr.WEB.

    I myself run several file-integrity-checkers on-demand.
    NISFileCheck, ADinf32 Pro are two of them.

    NISFileCheck gives better info and uses a much stronger HASH algorithm.
    But, alas (!!!) it is no longer maintained.

    For ADinf32 there wasn't published for quite a long time an upgrade.
    That's why I'm so excited ! :)
    Lots of things could be said about ADinf32.
    I guess that I should have made a thread about it long ago. :oops:
    You have options to check for which file extensions you like.
    It is able to check any file change (change/new added/deleted) on your system.
    You can let it use its so-called bios-call, completely by-passing Windows !
    It checks whether your master-boot and boot-records are changed.
    The list goes on ;)

    Use it together with a registry-integrity-checker like RegRun Gold (and of course your AV, AT, firewall, anti-spyware-program and backup-imaging-program).

    Cheers, Jan.

    Hi TD !

    Do you know whether it is advised to install over the top or better first to uninstall the existing ADinf?

    Oops, that site is in Russian; I can't read it... ;)

    Thanks :)

    Warm regards, Jan.

    I installed it over 3.01 without any problems.

    Unfortunately fido’s support site for DrWeb and ADinf is in Russian. I studied Russian in school so I can read and understand some of it. :cool: ;)

    Once again a big thanks to Technodrome:

    I installed version 3.02 over my existing 3.01.
    But then I got an error-message that my user key was not valid.
    Technodrome told me that you only get free upgrades within one year.
    I have to admit that I didn't know that :oops:
    (I bought my ADinf32 Pro about 2 years ago).

    Here is the info:

    After registering ADinf32 you will receive registration key by e-mail. Registered users will get upgrades for one year FREE of cost.
