    I see in the free to pay for comparison the free version has malware termination unchecked. What is one to do if they can not terminate the malware?

    it doesn't matter. Malware wil remain isolated any how, unable to damage the system, it wil get terminated itself or on next reboot.

    I didn't care of geswall. It seemed to slow down firefox when opening it and running it.

    If its active and running open the GW console and go to the untrusted processes list and select Terminate.

    I thought it was disabled in the free version? I saw Matt's review on the trail of the full version you could terminate malware there and the comparison says that there is no termination in the free one.

    I know, and the free version does not have this feature so will a reboot get rid of everything?

    GesWall and similar softwares main function is to isolate the possible thread, and sandbox the system. Every other security feature is welcome, but even so GesWall ( free ) works very good.

    Thanks I was under the suspicion that you could not terminate the malware with the free version. Glad to see you can. Also when Geswall does get something it blocks all access so it can't send anything back to the host right? I don't know much about Geswall.
