    With all the drama about them creating viruses, no wonder. But I'd trust Google with my phone numbers more than I would installing rising with my suspicions of why they suddenly made it free.

    Rising 2011 did pretty good in the languy video.Limited on 64bit though as the pc doctor components which integrate are not compatible ,so 64 bit users will not have the trojan defence ,browser protection and a few other modules.

    They cover an estimated 50% of China's home users according to Wiki. Be a bunch of happy users over there. Have to wonder about their motives for this. Can't say I've ever used their gear. Can't say this will change my mind :)

    Or maybe nobody paid for them in China anyway so they gave up.
    I mean 90% of Windows installations are pirated in China after all.:D

    @ sg09, thanks a lot for your info. :shifty:

    I tried Rising Personal Firewall 2008, Special Edition, some years ago. Rising Firewall is an amazing no-HIPS based firewall. These news are very interesting indeed.

    As soon as possible I'll try Rising Personal Firewall 2011.

    Thanks again for the info sg09.

    I don't know what is Rising's intension on going free. May be they want to strengthen their cloud database...
    But as MajoMo said Rising firewall is truely a fine product.

    Over in China, Rising is the best malware protection for Chinese malware.
    I have some friends in China and they won't use anything but Rising.
    But in other regions of the world Rising is lacking in malware protection.

    I believe Rising intentions is to be more global, what better way than to make their products free to everyone and then collects malware samples to increase their global database.

    Thanks.:D

    Maybe they want to attract users and a good opinion of them?...I tried Rising FW - looks very interesting and with many options and features is really an effective security...or I'm wrong :)

    In China, majority of them is using Qihoo 360 because it's free. Kingsoft and Rising were once paidware (at China), but now they released it as freeware.

    no actually I am pleased with how light it is. Have not tested protection yet, and just may not. I think I just might let this one show me over time how well it does.

    When AVG first started to suck (v7.5 and later I think), I switched to Rising Antivirus (2008 or 2009). I used it for one full year because it was free for a year (then updates stopped working). It took a lot of disk space, ~300-500 MB (it grew over time) and offered comprehensive protection (virus, spyware, rootkits, trojans,...), but despite the size it never hogged real-time resources, ran smoothly without causing a slowdown, and wasn't overly aggressive or annoying with pop-ups. I'll probably install the latest version on at least my desktop now that it's free. On my laptop I've been using Prevx Free since RAV, but we'll see...

    Rising Personal Firewall 2011 - Free

    Rising Personal Firewall 2011 FREE

    - Uninstalled Privatefirewall with their own uninstaller; reboot and uninstalled it with ZSoft Uninstaller'Analyzed log [Privatefirewall left some files/registry entries after standard uninstall].

    - Installed Rising Firewall monitored with ZSoft. No issues.

    - Lightness is an attribute: no-HIPS based, system resources used low (mem and CPU usage), no-intrusive at all, effective and customized if needed and/or wanted. Default settings are excellent and not intrusive.

    - Working like a charm with Avast and SandboxIE.

    Rising Firewall is an exceptional program simply.
