    New version of ProcessGuard is listed as version 3.2. I am currently running 3.410. Don't know why 3.2 is listed as the new version and what happened to Wayne the last 10 months or so. The last update pf PG was over a year ago. Hopefully we will hear from him.

    I found the members area, but it didn't take any password I remember using, so I checked the lost password box. Be interesting to see what happens.

    Good news that Wayne is back. I have been a happy PG user for the past couple of years. Hope he is going to continue and update the product. Hope he is doing better now.

    I'd hope to see DiamondCS return and resolve the licensing issues reported by others here. However it seems they (he?) have some catching up to do - their news page talks about a new version 3.2 of ProcessGuard when the last one released was 3.410...

    Hi guys, we'll soon hear, for sure i hope with all of you.
    I remembver Wayne was developing something very genious for our protection, looking forward to that. In the final messages here in the forum i remember he gave us a sneak peek into the new website, everything seems to be working fine down there. Maybe some texts have to be updated.
    Searching my memory, wasn't PG 3.4.? a test version and the 3.2 the last working final? The free version could be a restricted version from that which i think to remember has that 3.1.? version number as the .exe itself was not changed but some additions in other files made it a 3.2.?
    So it does look like lots of work has been done. Looking forward to the new developments. Issues from the past will be solved where possible?
    Hope all who never got their keyfiles or money back will finally be OK now at last.

    BTW: the free tools, console tools and all those nice neat programs have always been very fine and handy. Some guys use the tests to terminate hanging processes as well. Never any unwanted extra's in them, no spyware and that kind, would be nice to test them on Vista systems as well.

    Let's just wait and see to Welcome Wayne back into serious business.


    *As i didn't hear since all those months either and can but say i do HOPE everything will be made right with everybody. I changed my above text in this sense.*

    Woe to those of little faith (-:

    I knew they wouldn't just get up and leave us all stranded.
    I've held on to my PG in hopes that we would hear from Wayne
    who I'm sure has a valid explanation of what happened and why.

    Can't wait to see what awaiting us and the next update

    Well Well Well
    Whadda ya know !
    Hello Jooske haven't seen you around much.


    No doubt there will be much written and molto spleen venting to come.
    It may well be wonderful to have DCS back up and running. :)
    Little doubt that they have been missed and quite a lot has changed in the last few months.

    Will Wilders still host/reopen a DCS forum.?

    Life: I love it :)

    So the response you got was from Wayne himself or someone representing him and DCS ? :)
    Then DCS is back up and still developing security software o_O
    It would be very good news if this is indeed true. :thumb:
    Now if we could just bring Ewido back from the grave. :rolleyes:

    Wayne has some explaining to do, but he might have gone back to what he considers the last really good/solid Process Guard which was 3.15 llRC and used that as a base and built 3.2.
    We shall see.

    No, it's the other way round. 3.410 is the latest. Up until a few weeks ago you could still get it from this link:-

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=142604

    I needed to d/l from there after a recent reformat, but the link seems dead now.
