    Please don't pretend you know how prevx works when its clear to me you don't, prevx will improve its rogue detection in 4.0, but prevx does already have the things you seem to want prevx to have, which is why I don't understand your comments.

    *sigh*

    I don't know what you're arguing about. I've already added a wishlist for features in the coming version, whether you like them or not.

    Can we have the option not to show the PSO tab in the browser in 4.0 (or an upcoming 3.0) build? I don't use it much because I never want to inadvertantly protect sites and always do my configuration of PSO from the main GUI.

    Please.

    I would like an option where I could choose on what browsers I have installed I want to use SO on. Wouldn't be too hard to implement, right?

    Hello

    I'm a new PrevX user (bought a license in the last week). I don't know if someone said it before but will be interesting if we can send malware samples using the PrevX client. I just sent a malware sample to "reports" address and I don't know if you send some reply (it was my first sample to you) but it will be interesting too.

    Best regards.

    Tiago

    I would like to see more transparency in the data that prevx is sending to the central database. For example, It would be ideal if I could open a reports section and there view the history of all events/information submitted from my computer to prevx. This already works for malware detections via MyPrevx but as far as I know there is no real way to see what data has been sent to the database regarding specific files etc.

    Give users the option of retaining their license info on their system when uninstalling.

    I'd like an option to keep the little authenticating files option on top, as I don't see it when I'm using my web browser, now I still have to minimize it to see the authenticating files pop-up.

    from what I am hearing or at least from what I have read so far in the threads... you guys seem to be expecting miracles out of a program that is specificaly a behaviour blocker to begin with. it wasn't made to replace an antivirus solution. most rouge apps will be picked up and blocked by a good antivirus program. unless it is something that is really brand new. Prevx is a good addition to security but no one product can do it alone ,and it shouldn't be expected to.

    I do agree with your comments about using a layered solution if possible but while Prevx in its earlier incarnations (v1, v2) was only a behavior blocker and therefore something to be used alongside an AV, Prevx 3 and the upcoming Prevx 4 certainly can replace any security solution and does so in most cases across our users. Frankly, Prevx is one of the best rogue detectors available as well: http://malwareresearchgroup.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=80 We detect literally tens of thousands of variants of rogue threats every day automatically because of our familial signatures. While they are indeed more difficult for all of the antivirus industry to detect, it is not impossible and Prevx does include a strong signature engine in addition to the behavior monitoring :)

    We're certified Platinum from WestCoastLabs for Antivirus, Antitrojan, and Antispyware, as well as receiving the PC Magazine Editors' Choice for Antispyware and numerous other awards so while it may sound like Prevx focuses on "behavior, behavior, behavior", we do so in a way that allows us to detect threats that more conventional AVs also detect.

    Let me know if you have any questions! :)

    I have no problem using 3 as a stand alone app. Version 4 is going be sweet.

    In what kind of time schedule should we expect version 4? Or the beta?
    I do hope there will be a beta soon. Because I don't know yet what I'll do after my current ESET license expires (I have the NOD32 + Hitman Pro bundle). ESET 5 has to come with some nice features. And I do like Prevx and since the Prevx + Hitman Pro bundle is available that seems like a solid option. (Without the SafeOnline component ofcourse, but I have read there is a commandline trick to install it without Safe Online. I don't like programs protecting my browser, I keep my pc safe, so why should I care? SafeOnline might very well be a great program, fine to me, you can tell me anything you want. But I don't need it.)

    Also: what will be the highlight new features of version 4?

    if Prevx works fine as a stand alone program then it would detect everything around it like the eicar test file which it doesn't. it doesn't even detect trojan simulator. so if you are working on an "all security app?" I would fix those two things because if it won't detect something as simple as a test file.. what will it do in realtime? using it beside something is fine. I myself just don't see the point in using something that doesn't detect the simple things. leaves your system too vunerable. it is like unlocking the doors while you are away and expecting to be fine. layered protection is always a good idea. in some cases it isn't needed but those circumstances are rare.

    It does detect them! https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1680260&postcount=10 and here is the whole thread https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=272629 There must be some other security app that is interfering with detection?

    True as I removed NOD32 on my laptop and I find it much faster I will use NOD32 and Prevx on my Desktop till my NOD32 license expires! Check in Detection Overrides in Prevx to see if they are there? And also what Version of Prevx are you using? Prevx full, Free version or Facebook version?

    TH

    EDIT: In my Test screen shot I executed them and then Prevx Blocked them!

    free because I can't buy the full just yet. one thing I would recommend although I doubt it would change anything is that people actually get a chance to TRY OUT the detection because otherwise as it has been said on different videos... it acts like a rouge app. oh look its detected but to remove you have to pay etc. in my case nothing is detected. and nothing is in detection overrides.

    Believe me it's not a ROGUE! Maybe do a reinstall to see if that helps? Uninstall and reboot and install a fresh copy! Maybe give the new RC a try? https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=275231

    I know that it isn't a rouge but the way the company operates in making people pay for something that should be a good trial of... is the same type of deal. one other thing I would vouch for would be live support or a way to actually contact them other than just e mail lol. and yep I have reinstalled. I am on a fresh copy now :p

    With ESET active, it is likely blocking Prevx from reading the files. We obviously detect EICAR and Trojan Simulator, but in order to be compatible with other security products, we will let them detect the files if they can :)

    hmm I am curious as to where. because Prevx goes through a third party and on the clever bridge site it specificaly said (at least from what I have found) that they don't provide support for their products.... but live chat is wonderfull when you can get ahold of people ;) I just wish my mouse wouldn't act up with it installed lol

    We offer live chat on a case-by-case basis as virtually all support inquiries can be solved over our standard messaging. We also offer phone support if it is required, and remote assistance for helping out with malware infections or software incompatibilities.

    Regarding your mouse - could you try lowering protection to "High" from Maximum within SafeOnline and see if that fixes the issue? :)
