    would be nice to see a program that will protect you against infection if you happen to accidently or stupidly click on an attachment or a bad link in a email you recieved.. to keep it from infecting your computer if the link or attachment was malicious.

    Hi Beefcarver,

    I tried to send a PM but seems you have it disabled. Take a look at Online Armor - it has a web filter, mail filter and program execution protection with a basic rollback capability.

    So - if you go to a website, with ActiveX embedded (for example) you get an alert. If you try and dbl click on an email attachment, it won't run unless you give it permission... and if it seems like a horrible mistake, you can delete the program and roll back files and reg entries it created.

    Will online armour protect against dangerous scripts being run?

    It will alert you on batch files, but doesn't yet cover scripting. It's on the list :)
