Simply boot into safe mode and uninstall the beta through the start menu. I am very pleased to be able to finally release a public beta of AppDefend. After many months of work and distractions (GhostWall and another yet to be announced feature) it is in a state which most people will be able to use effectively. It is still a little rough in some areas, so please be mindful of this, on the whole though it is working as it should. RegDefend has also been updated a bit, mostly through the GUI and some driver enhancements. Many thanks to the beta testers for providing testing and ideas throughout the development phase. AppDefend currently protects against :- 1) Network access 2) Process creation 3) Process execution 4) Global Hooks (DLL injection / Keyloggers) 5) Process/Thread suspension and context modification 6) Virtual Memory modification 7) Remote Thread Creation Physical Memory access 9) Termination of threads and processes 10) Rootkit installation methods In this beta you will most likely be introduced to "George the Ghost" which is a small nag screen for people who have not purchased the components. It is purposedly coming up often in this beta (5 minutes after the launch of gss.exe he will appear once), and will be reduced to only 2 or 3 times a month by the final build. I just wanted everyone to be able to see the nag screen and possibly provide any feedback regarding it. All in all there have been a lot of changes, and I hope to hear some feedback regarding the changes and AppDefend.
