I wonder if there is any freeware alternative for Online Armor?
Not for everything OA does . I expect you would need 3 or 4 freebies to get close to OA s protection .
I installed trial version of OA, but i feel it is making all the system a bit slow just the same as i felt with Prevx. Am I true?
no real slow down on my system
- SNS makes my boot longer as does Outpost but AO does not make much difference
No slow down on my system either.
Not here either. Is the issue price or computer speed?
I don`t even know it`s on my machine.
I am using NIS and MSAS.Then I added Antihook( fingerprint mode) and PG free learning mode, just to try these. Then I added OA and felt my systemis slow. May be a compatibility issue. Anybody try all these? After i uninstalled I did feel a difference, any explanation?
Well i don't see the point of having PG, AH and OA as they pretty much perform the same function. One of the three maybe, two if you want to be paranoid, but three is simply overkill and isn't required. Try disabling PG and AH and running AO on it's own.
About the slowdown. I suspect one of those other two are conflicting, or simply having all three running is too much, as they will be fighting each other for monitoring the same area's of your system.
Also, tell us a little about the spec of your pc.
aigle, i found Anti-Hook in finger print mode caused quite some lag on my system. Maybe its this opposed to OA that causes the slowdowns?
I replaced Prevx1 with Online Armor and believe it improved my system's performance. I certainly don't think OA slowed it down any. I also haven't noticed any conflicts between ProcessGuard (full) and Online Armor. However, I could do without OA's nag screen insisting on an Internet connection upon rebooting (before it's even physically possible for me to establish a connection using dial-up).
PG , OA , and AH do not all do basically the same thing . Of the three , OA offers more security overall . AH and PG are very close to being the same . The suggestion should be , use OA and add 1 of the other 2 IF you wish . Nice layering that way . If I were to choose only one , it would have to be OA . More security as stated earlier . The difference between PG and AH is not much .
Sorry Skytrooper - this is for automatic updates - I am planning a service release in the next 24h - I will try and get a fix for this one in there.
I have Pentium M 1.73, 512, 40 GB
I just uninstalled all 3, did a systemresore to 1 week back. OA I will not try as it was just trial. So from PG free or AntiHook which one I should choose. I am leaning towards Antihook.
If your looking for a great free alternative, Why not try Cyberhawk, i think its great.
