    But I am glad that Ilya takes his time and gets it right.

    PS: I never use an oven. Pot and blow torch are quicker.

    I find it hard to believe that Ilya charged bellgamin and myself ( SIR****TMG) for a update to this and then gives it away free after telling us he needed money,to participate in the dynamic tests. On our own forums Gladiator Security Forums we talk and try fixing this product. I find this not fair to loyal testers. I'm not happy with this at all and feel betrayed by Ilya.:mad:

    I think the idea behind it was to get more exposure and hence more customers for Defensewall. The same with the other recent giveaway.

    Yes, that is correct. But it's quite hard to do it without attracting more attention to the project. The lottery (yes, it's a lottery, not a giveaway) gives me this- attention of the Raymond.cc auditory. Dynamic tests are, usually, about thousands of US dollars. DW update is $10.95.

    All the loyal testers, soon or later receive one unusual gift if I can find out where to send it. :)

    Ilya - Will the final release version of personal firewall also contain the HIPS as it does now in the beta version? BTW, 3 beta 5 continues to play well with my other software.

    You may be right but we must under stand that a small vendor might not afford to give free licences.
    The offer on Raymond is actually a lottery, a promo in fact.

    Ilya, I know your help support on the forum and help file is great.

    I think you'd benefit by a small youtube tutorial, showing people how to go through and right-click and set as 'untrusted', all the applications they don't trust and can lead to harmful downloads. Although explain, the built-in list does place most applications that need to be untrusted, as untrusted automatically.

    Show people that to install an update to Opera or firefox, they must right-click and 'run as trusted'. Same with a program install - but they must trust 100 per cent the install they're allowing to install.

    Something simple, under five minutes. Would save you from a lot of questions on the forum, and free up your time if done properly. Someone like Raymond, or an experienced DW user might be able to do it.

    Just an example where a new user would view the youtube clip on your page, and walk away knowing how DW works (as opposed to reading through the help file - which does explains things clearly, just many users wouldn't spend the time to read it):

    That would be a good idea. Beyond my realm of expertise though.

    With the right script of what to say and do, someone who makes videos all the time, say Matt at http://www.remove-malware.com or even youtube guys like languy99.

    Matt did a review a year ago:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71aNELHkung

    And a more recent review of another product:
    http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=mrizos#p/u/3/GdWjQaYJgNI

    Doesn't have to be the greatest video of all time, as long as it gives a basic overview of the product.

    Yes. In fact, Personal Firewall can be cut down to the HIPS edition with just one registry value.

    Three and half security holes covered. Whitelisting. Untrusted installation files dynamic control. Unwanted system restart control. Skinning. Increased stability.
