    rainbow1112,

    My copies have just updated and read 2m+ signatures on the status bar so it looks like they have fixed the server issues.

    Hi, I like very much DriveSentry: high protection, easy to use for friendly users.... So in a next future I think to use it to protect an educational LAN with an Internet connection, in a School.
    So I would know: is DriveSentry a continuing project, that will go on in the future ? I ask it because in the past we saw a lot of good programs, like NeoavaGuard or ProSecurity, that were discontinued, and I need to be assured about DS

    the advantage here is that as i was told by one of the global forum people that drivesentry very soon will be recognize by microsoft as antivirus software
    and the other 2 are hips products and the competation is very hard for hips at the moment(some hips products been discontinue)

    The DriveSentry icons are ugly! I have been using DriveSentry GoAnywhere on my iPod Video 30GB. The autorun doesn't work for me so i have to start DriveSentry by double clicking on the drive on My Computer.

    Nice program. After removing all the programs out from the access rules: and setting options for the Advisor Automated Decision Options to No, it still auto allowing so called whitelisted programs. I think personally for someone as advanced as myself I would like to be able to choose what I want to allow, basically create my own white list as I go. I'm guessing that the signatures in the local data base is overiding my wanting to manually allow which programs are allowed. I really like this program though.

    To me the pop ups are very poor. No good explanation that what is going on, by the pop ups.

    Hey jmonge, I am guessing that the prior problem between Sandboxie and DriveSentry is now fixed? Used to give BSOD's back then.

    Hi evilscribble have you try fully uninstalling DriveSentry and reinstalling. Use a free tool such as CCleaner to clean the registries leftovers. And what version of DS are you using anyway. The pre-released version works fine now.
    Yeah the icon are too large in my opinion.

    Don't get too confident with it guys, It fails the zemana key logger test.

    EDIT: I seriously notified them about a month ago and no replies.

    Kyle1420,

    I doubt they would add keylogger protection as DriveSentry is not a full blown HIPS product. I think other users are using Comodo or Online Armour to compliment DS on this type of threat.

    Well I tried DS a while back and it killed my vista with random BSOD.I waited it out a bit and taken another shot now and So far So very good.Question here though does DS run realtime AV engine where it may have a disagreement with Nod32 at some point in Time.
