    Just a little progress update FYI in case you're wondering what's happening at the moment, we'll be releasing a new build of ProcessGuard soon. We believe we've fixed the problem which was discussed here a couple weeks ago and we're just finalising some tests and ironing out the last creases before we make it available to you guys.

    APT v4.0 ...
    The next release of PG will also be accompanied by the release of APT v4.0. It now has an enhanced, easier-to-use and more-informative interface (it deserves it!), we've added two new user-mode kill methods (including one which allows you to inject the killcode into an accomplice process which then does the termination on PG's behalf) which brings the total number of user-mode kill techniques, as well as a new kernel-mode kill, which uses ZwTerminateThread rather than ZwTerminateProcess like the original kernel kill method did. All in all, 12 user-mode kill methods, 2 fatal-crash methods, 2 kernel-mode/driver-based kill methods, and 2 process suspension methods. Also due to popular demand we've brought back the multiple-kill tool which allows you to easily test a process against as many kill techniques as you like, all at the click of a couple of buttons.

    Anyway that's enough talk for now but I hope that sheds a bit of light on what we're doing and what's coming up. Back to work! :)

    Hi Wayne,

    Would you mind updating us on the progress of PG final 3.3? Do you still have something critical to solve?

    Thanks...

    Hi Wayne,

    Will the next version of PG still a beta version or a final release?

    Thanks,
