    I have the utmost respect for the dev and for his program.
    I mean, I see the published results (like in the MRG Flash Tests).
    But when I used DW (several years back, at least) I had a tough time figuring it out completely.
    Perhaps it has changed a bit since then. I know I have, and maybe that was the problem all along... me! :)

    No I do not and the reason is that it slows my browser down a lot while running untrusted. If it was not for that, I would run DW it in a heartbeat.

    The last time i tried Defensewall was like 2 years ago.
    It was a simple to use software yet effective but i was in love with pop ups. :rolleyes: :D

    No I don't. No malware has managed to break it so far. The reason I haven't bought a license yet is because Sandboxie gives me a similar type of security, and somehow I felt more comfortable running SB. Last but not least SB is one license for all my home computers, I don't think DefenseWall has this licensing policy (please rectify my statement if I'm wrong).

    I used it for a while along Sandboxie and a real time antivirus. I was attracted to DW and wanted to see what it was. I liked it as it was very easy for me but after 6 months, I figured that I was more relaxed if not using it, by avoiding probable unknown conflicts with SBIE.

    I voted: No - I've heard of it but I'm not interested.

    I use AppGuard which is a similar type of application to DefenseWall. I'm happy with AppGuard and I've no desire to switch. Also, I plan to upgrade to 64-bit in the near future where DefenseWall is not an option.

    Yap, I have this one in the past. And I think this is one of the best of the best that you can get out there protecting your machine in a superior way that it has to be, but I noticed that my pc are becoming slower and it got some kind of "heaviness" that makes my pc freeze sometimes. The cpu goes up and I couldn't figure it out. Maybe my system is not that compatible or what.

    The protection is top notch and I might try this thing out again in the future when I upgrade my system. Hope Ilya could improved it more. ;)

    As of now I am using something that could I think at least can match its power but didn't give me some problem in my pc. :thumb:

    Not to beat a dead horse but no 64 bit got to be killing sales.

    I respect DefenseWall PF for it beats all known to me malware tests. Now I have it on my office comp as the only resident security - RAM is too low. I had some correspondence with the dev (there were some issues with MS Office and DW) - he's rather competent guy.

    Ditto, it's a YES here!

    Running DW P FW on 2 desktops [XP] and 1 laptop [Win 7] ...all x32 bit to be sure.

    All is well.

    :D
