Arovax Shield - website
Any info about the quality of this program?
well its free.
i've seen the screenshot it looks like it protects u from IE only
anyone knows wat it does
and how it prevents
I test it but use to much memory, and I prefer the WinPatrol that it is much better for now...
We had a small chat with the developer at avast's forum http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=14675.0
So you are saying it's functionality is the same as Winpatrol? Any screenshots?
Not the same.
Have some features of WinPatrol...
About the pictures you can see the main window on the website...
Not sure how old/new this application is, but worryingly Google finds nil hits when searching the name Arovax Shield
i have tried it. it looks to me thats its not that good and doesn't give any extra protection then spywareblaster,zonealarm and kaspersky.
You want me to beg? What other features does it have? Or don't you know?
The thread at the Avast forum was quite funny.
About Arovax, I don´t think it´s necessary when you are already using MS AntiSpy.
Well, I do think that MS AntiSpy is good. The only problem with it is that its a large download.
Now, onto the subject of Arovax Shield: I tried to run it, but I couldn't (It keeps on crashing when I try to run it). I wonder if anyone with Windows XP SP2 managed to run it. If not, wait for the next version (I sent the developers an e-mail about it).
We have to wait a while until this program could have real test...
It's a very green program...
Yes I agree, MS AntiSpy is not really an option on slow machines, and it´s a bigger download but it also offers a lot more. Arovax just doesn´t seem that special to me, but it does have a nice and simple GUI though. I´m going to check it out just for fun.
