Looks like faronics AE is windows 7 compatiable.I am trying it now.Here is a screenie in action.
You can right click for identifile,example CCleaner.Be nice if something was suggested to white list it or black list it perhaps a user base.
35$ a year is a lot of money for one security product.
I dont think so considering Anti virus cost that and then some.The enterprize edition is $180.00 a year US, now thats expensive.
Better get on the SRP bandwagon
35 bucks, thats down from 45 if I'm not mistaken.
But even after a year AE will still work won't it, just you can't download any updates. (newer versions) unless you keep up the subscription (maintenance) package?
sounds good djohn
from the first image in this thread it looks like they added DLL protection.
They've had DLL protection since I was using version 2.
Not sure if another anti-executable, EXE Radar Pro has dll protection.
If I can control my self and actually trial something more then a day,I might consider it more perminent.Radar Pro looks good to but I have not tried it yet.
I'm going to give Faronics a trial run. I worked a bit with their technical help (on the phone) and they are very eager to help.
I hope they got it right this time, it is almost 3 years that AE never worked properly on Vista (I presume Win7 would have had the same problem). I know what I'm talking about as I have been testing it reporting directly to the developers. When AE works properly there's just about nothing that can breach it, if one applies a default/deny approach to security.
Did they change the price model? $35 is fine if the application still works after a year (normally one had to pay extra for upgrades, but upgrades were only necessary for new OSs).
I will let you know if it breaks windows 7.I was wondering why DeepFreeze and AE seemed to be stuck on XP.I thought Faronics was no longer developing there products until know.
I never knew the protection was that good,I cant remember what member it was here that swore by it a few yrs back.
Thanks Osaban,good to see you helping them make it right.
Does it play well with Sandboxie? Any impact on system speed? I know I should test it myself, but I still feel the frustration of the several attempts to get it right in the past.
So far its playing nice together and yes I do notice a little slower browsing but on a netbook,It dont take much.
i like these default-deny setups.
they don't use much system resources and i like the idea of whitelisting; seems pretty close to bulletproof as long as the developers of the software have things figured out.
i'm gonna install the demo and give it a spin.
Well I should be thanking you for bringing it back to Wilders, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how this version behaves with Win7. I also thought Faronics had somewhat dropped AE's development in favour of their new antivirus. The member you are probably referring to is 'Rmus' (Exploit Analyst) who hasn't been posting lately.
I only see two processes together is 6,624 K
O ya Rich,let his ears ring and bring his expertise.
i just tried it.
as soon as i tried enabling DLL protection in AE's Setup page the whole system froze up.
it totally FUBARed the whole system and the it became as responsive as a ton of brick
i had to restore an image.
thank goodness for that!
before that, i tried installing an addon in Chrome and there was not a peep from AE.
what exactly is this thing good for?
of course, we might have had a chance to find out if the whole system din't go beserk on me, as above.
maybe i 'broke' it? lol
Working good here so far.
That means it doesn't seem to have changed much with some systems. I have experienced this kind of behaviour so many times (including restoring an image) that in the end I gave up. I had even prepared a Vista installation without any security just in case something was creating a conflict, to no avail. On the other hand it used to work flawlessly with my 2 XP machines.
With the DLL Execution is Extremley chatty and maybe just lucky it did not freeze up on me.
Good thing you've got Sandboxie
