    Hi,

    I was looking for Cyberhawk, because I wanted to re-install it on my pc.
    It's been a while and haven't been staying up-to-date with all the programs.
    In "Cyberhawksupport" (if I have the name right) signature there's a link to
    http://www.threatfire.com and didn't see "cyberhawk".

    Has Cyberh. changed its name or are these two totally different Programs ??

    Thanks for any infos. :)

    PC Tools (the makers of Spyware Doctor) bought Cyberhawk and renamed it Threatfire.

    The same team who made Cyberhawk is behind ThreatFire with almost no intervention from PC Tools.
    I'd consider them trustworthy.

    Latest version seems to be very stable.

    From reading the forums, I'm assuming since pctools added their GUI, ThreatFire now allows you to create custom rules, allows you to exclude specific processes, to 'allow' or 'quarantine' a process, and uses specific colors for alerts.

    Just a visual addition, but the 'flame' flickers when it's in the process of quarantining a virus/malware, or performing a 'rootkit' scan. Nice touch! :)
