    the 1.16 version works on my system(windows xp en pro sp2). But according to the author's blog, there are bugs inside, which might cause some systems unstable or icesword unusable. So he doesn't recommand users to upgrade it. Btw, the latest version is 1.18 beta2. The link is on the author's blog. However, the connection might be very slow.

    If you get error code 4 according to the author's blog, one possibility is that you are infected because some rootkits cause Icesword to display that.

    You can try turning off hyperthreading (via bios setup) . it does the trick for me.

    Loosely translated from the blog.

    1.18beta2

    Firstly, to my friends I would like to express my gratitude, even a few words from you is enough to make me happy, making me feel that protecting IS is worthwhile doing. Additionally to the friends who sent me their error dumps, I would also like to say thanks to them.

    I would like to say sorry to everyone. Most of the bugs in 1.16 came from changes in the anti debugging code, altough the changes weren't very major, due to carelessness and the lack of testing on SMP machines or machines with hyperthreading, this caused the various crashes observed. I have now removed this, because I felt that that even for the sake of completness (perfectness?) these changes were not necessary, and because the funtional code changes in 1.16 were very minor anyway and were just (token?? doing for the sake of doing only?).

    However, there will still be other problems because there are too many kinds of PCs out there, software use in computer systems are even more numerous, and the maintance/testing time is limited,??, so I cannot guarantee that the testing is sufficient. I ask for everyone's understanding.

    None-educational accounts will be slow, but since it's only a beta, not being able to download it temporaily is not imporant. Send me a mail , I will reply
    when I have the time (of course hopefully your mail won't be treated as spam by the mail system and disposed off)

    1.18 released.

    Loose translation follows..

    ********************

    For the last two days, the response to 1.18 was not bad, so it will be the official release version.

    Some friends have reported (some kind of problemso_O), a pity only a few of them sent error logs, and some of them couldn't be opened, lol! I don't have time to check the code, and you need error logs/file dumps to do debugging. Because my testing shows no problem of the kind, I will temporarily shelve this problem.

    I think it could be a conflict with the firewall? Additionally for systems that have had crashes with all versions (of icesword), should consider the possibility of a software conflict or an infection problem.

    ****************

    So anyone downloaded the 1.18 yet? There's an english version

    The reason is that the file (v 1.18 ) is inside the Chinese Educational Network, which limits outside connection to access it.

    Yes wujxin, thank you very much for the upload.

    Now, can anyone explain the "Boot and monitor" option? I'm pretty sure it is what the name suggests, but I am relucant to
    try it out without hearing from the (fearless) experts first. Thanks in advance.

    I guess it is to monitor any process created after reboot

    After the reboot the driver of IceSword is set to be loaded before any userland process in the system. When it is loaded it sets the notification routine which is called when a new process or thread is created. Then when you run IceSword later again and you look into Log Process/Thread Creation you will see what happened since Windows started. This is very useful if you think there is some stealth malware loading in some early stage of system start.
