    Arovax Shield™ is a brand new free type of personal security solution that is unlike to any firewall, anti-virus or spyware remover.

    Rather than looking for spyware traces or tracking applications that secretly send or receive data over the Internet, Arovax Shield blocks any attempt by malicious software to add entries to the auto-start menu, change the registry, hijack or install itself into a browser or find any other way to stealthy get itself onto a PC.

    Arovax Shield's main function is to monitor all important branches of the Windows registry. If any attempts to write/delete/change are made, it notifies the user immediately and shows what program aroused suspicions and what actions it wanted to do. Arovax Shield gives the user an ability either to allow or block this attempt explaining what exactly is trying to infiltrate the system.

    With the help of a special Arovax Shield parameter it can simply be hidden in the tray doing all the actions itself, letting you do your work while it silently sits in the background guarding your PC.

    " New Free PC Solution Stops Malware Before It Overtakes your PC ", Is that is true ?

    -- Arovax Shield™ detects and notifies you about all major online threats trying to penetrate your system, isolates & blocks them:

    * Spyware & Adware
    * Keystroke Loggers
    * Trojan Horses
    * Keystroke Monitors
    * System Monitors
    * Security Disablers
    * Browser Hijackers
    * Page Hijackers etc
    The main benefits of Arovax Shield™ are:

    * Real time protection automatically monitors PC for unwanted malware.
    * Enhanced detection and removal engine improves on the thoroughness, accuracy, speed, and efficiency of detecting and blocking all forms of spyware parasites.

    Arovax isn't really a newcomer. Some of us know it for quiet some time now.

    Arovax Shield says that it monitors changes to the registry as pertains to startup & autorun items. As such, it is *somewhat* along the lines of WinPatrol, RegRun's Watchdog, Spybot's Teatimer, MJRegistryWatch, & RegDefender.

    However, the Arovax support forum did not offer specific information in responding to a question as to exactly WHICH registry items are monitored by Arovax Shield -- see the forum thread HERE

    Thus, the level of protection provided by Arovax Shield is presently a mystery. IMHO Arovax Shield is a program to watch, but it is likely that other programs (listed in my first paragraph) presently offer more extensive protection of startup/autorun items. Plus the registry items covered by those other programs are better defined, & more configurable.

    Please don't make posts that are direct copy/pastes of a website (or direct download links). You can imagine how the first post in this thread looked like spam at first.

    How does this product compare to SpywareGuard by Javacool. I mean I have been running Jc's SG for a very long time and I think it's heuristics are topnotch, but compared to AS, the memory usage is slightly on the high side. Seeing as to how I'm on a 4 year old Celeron, any resources saved would be great. So I was wondering if SpywareGuard could be replaced with AS.

    My testimonial, based on true facts :
    I have tried a lot of security software: Spyware Removers, Firewalls, ShadowUser, different security bundles, but unfortunately none of them made me feel safe while I was browsing online. Now I have Arovax Shield and it saved me from TWO tracking cookies already in just one week. Isn't that something. Thank you Avorax Shield :D

    Very droll , Erikalbert.

    I agree with bellgamin.

    My superb expertise also tells me that spyware guard is over-rated and abandoned . godlike heuristics not withstanding.

    Oh wow. Is there confirmation of this?

    I was hoping SG would be updated soon.

    But does Arovax Shield actually do anything? It just sounds like a less powerful version of a program like Antihook.

    And by anything, I do not mean cookie blocking. I have firefox for that.

    No, Arovax Shield is a less intrusive and more user friendly "version" of PrevX.
    So, less popups for every time you move the mouse, but in general pretty much similar protection.

    I have tried it and I´m not impressed at all, it doesn´t really seem to monitor that much, so I hope it will be improved. It does has a nice GUI though. :rolleyes:

    Hmm PrevX offers a lot more protection than Arovax the last time I checked.

    the thing is Arovax shield is quite new it only being out for a few month. we should give it time.

    i think it really good already. but prevx is older and it has had years to improve it product

    Let's just say if i made such a post 6-8 months ago, there would be hordes of SG supporters contradicting it. After all javacool's forums are listed here.

    The lack of any response now speaks volumes.

    People are still using it out of habit I believe, and some misplaced loyalty to Javacool. I'm as big a fan of javacool as most, and I remember his contributions in the early years against spyware were great, but the lengths people go to defend the extremely out of date SG astonishes me.

    Particularly now, when there are many products both free and paid that surpass SG by miles.

    Please stay on topic justpassing. In case you do have an axe to grind with SG - post over on the relevant Javacool support forum.

    Hi Rejzor,

    You might want to revist Prevx1 and check out the latest release v1.1.0.32. It very different to the previous releases and now provide greater control of the query function.

    Take a look you might like the latest version.

    I am guessing that detox is part of this site and he has good reason to be angry we want real users posting not some advertisement. It's hard enough looking through a bunch of threads for what you need without somebody sounding like their cheerleading for their own product.
