    I have been moving over the new GUI code to the GSS code base, and it has been much easier than I thought. The new code certainly makes it very quick and uncomplicated to do things. Some of the benefits are now that there are no security holes in the method I am interacting with the user (unlike other products which are using standard controls). I can also display items in their full length without any restrictions (Microsoft listviews have an internal limit of 260 characters). Hackers can also no longer send windows messages to my GUI to control it, though I still need to cover mouse simulation events (on the todo). Finally, people will be able to manipulate the alert to make it look however they want, thanks to the new theming of the GUI.

    In these screenshots you can simply see the Win95 emulation layer of the GUI, I haven't made a custom one for it yet. I also haven't converted gss.exe yet, only the ask user dialog. I have fixed a few bugs from 1.200 alpha that were causing some people to have constant crashes, so I will probably be releasing a public alpha of just the new alert dialog to see if those crashes are fixed for those people. That will include some changes to the driver also, such as keylogging detection.

    You're finally keeping us informed. Good. Being informed does tend to keep us happy.

    I hope your good progress keeps up.

    So, we're dying to get our hands on the beta or RC.

    Cool, I am keen of testing it on my infiltrated system, comodo alpha resisted maximum of three days, GSS 1.2 alpha was attacked in ruleset files (it was no more able to read several rules, seems so) and finally disabled by this unknown monster. I am looking forward hearing more news.

    Hi SystemJunkie!
    I'm very interested in the tactics, technic and application you use to hack (test) your system.
    Can you name them please, along with the url to download them? I wish to try my own system how far secure it is.

    Thanx in advance!

    There is going to be a public alpha test within a week. This will also include the new RegDefend (from boot). So far everything is flowing very smoothly transitioning the new code in and upgrading RD to the new code base. Most (all) of the issues people had previously with the alpha should be solved.

    Moving most of the program now to the kernel level has really made it quite secure, and opened up a lot of doors in regards to what is possible for security on the PC. It is certainly going to be interesting over the coming months. :)

    Jason are you re-introducing the block read memory process into this version? If not can you please please consider it, i'm desperately waiting for it so I can replace my out of date buggy ProcessGuard.

    Good things need time, software development is from such complexity and diversity that one might think that one life by far isn´t enough.

    There is going to be a few more days delay on it due to some problems that have appeared on some machines. As I have said many times before, my estimates are just that estimates, not set in stone. :)

    Not a problem. I posted because I was curious about the delay.

    Creating a "better" product is good even when there are delays. :)

    Timely and informative communication is also good.

    The best you can come-up with are screen shots after how many months? Hmmm who was it that said it...? P.T. Barnum if I recall correctly... anyway...

    Suffice it to say, spoke like a true DCS protégé. You have had my money for almost 2 years now... I hope you invested it well. Do you really think anyone takes you seriously any longer Jason, other than the few that hang on in a delusional state?

    Why is there no time to do it Right the First Time? But lots of time to Redo it later.

    What is Worth while is worth waiting for.
