    Now that's a good deal, I may download it and wait for the compatibility to be fixed with MSE.

    All you have to do is install it, and nothing more.

    If you have an 'odd program' that needs to run with protection, you search in windows explorer and right-click on the executable and select 'change status to untrusted'. Do this for all the programs, messengers, anything you use that connects to the internet and is unsafe (defenswall will do this automatically, but some obscure programs might not be listed in its untrusted list - but there is no harm in you selecting a file and highlighting it as 'untrusted', even though defensewall already did).

    If you want to install a file that's safe, once the download file has finished, you can then right-click, and select 'change status to trusted'. You can then install the file properly.

    Remember that and you're fine. Also, if you want to update firefox for example, you can right-click, and select 'run as trusted', so it'll run once and be able to update. Do that say once every couple of weeks. :)

    "The program being offered has identical features to the latest $29.95 version 2.56 of DefenseWall except that it comes without support or free upgrades. However it can upgraded to the latest, full version 2.x release for $10.95 at any time before April 12, 2010. It can also be upgraded to the upcoming version 3 of DefenseWall with inbuilt firewall for $20.95."

    One of the best security apps around.

    If you could get Defensewall installed on all non-Wilder's PCs then we would probably only have to work on hardware issues?

    Yes, I'm running Sandboxie with Firefox 3.6b4 and DefenseWall here on a Vista SP2 laptop. No problems at all.

    Thanks for the info. Appreciated. :)

    I am running G Data AV, Agnitum FireWall Pro and Prevx.

    Can I add one layer more, DefenseWall HIPS? Is there any potential problems with this kind of setup? :doubt:
