    The beta version is available for download at http://www.torchsoft.com/download/md_setup_2.1.0_b1.exe

    what's new?
    - Improved log functionality.
    - Added create and delete permissions to file rules.
    - Added support for checking command line when a process is created. (If the create permission is PERMIT, creating new file is allowed, and writing is allowed before the file is closed)
    - Added support for selecting a group as rule object in Alert dialog.
    - Added support for restoring default rules.
    - Added support for creating new registry value of arbitrary type.
    - Added support for setting default value of registry key to arbitrary type.
    - Fixed a bug that cannot search files by date.
    - Fixed a bug that protection can be changed using hot keys when UI is locked.
    - Fixed a bug that cause ActiveSync to fail in Vista.
    - Minor improvements and fixes.

    Thanks,
    Xiaolin

    Sweet!
    1, I like the log entry colors for distinguishing between file, reg, process and network.
    2, The command line was definitely needed also.
    3, Not too sure what this means yet - 'Added support for selecting a group as rule object in Alert dialog'.

    Overall very nice, keep em coming!

    Sorry for my English.

    If you click the "..." button to modify the rule object, you can select a group as rule object now. :)

    Thanks for the update, xiaolin.

    It's getting better everytime :thumb: but...

    There's 3 things i fail to understand with v2.1.0 beta:

    - In the "Edit File Rule" window, modifying the write permission will change the create and delete permission
    - The priority mechanism: rules must be made in reverse order (first rule or group of rules in last position, etc.)
    - In global registry rules, there's no separate create and delete permissions (only "write" which strangely include create and delete)

    No problems with your English at all.
    Yep, I've figured it out now.

    Thanks xiaolin.

    This is annoying when building network rules through the Alert dialog. I have mentioned this to xiaolin here

    This design will make it easier to change write, create and delete permission together. But you can change create and delete permission to different setting.

    Normally, create and delete permission should be the same as
    write permission.

    I think it's not necessary to distinguish write/create/delete actions of registry.

    Thanks,
    Xiaolin

    You need to try the software on another Windows system.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience.

    Do you have it registered or was it a trial. If a trial your out of luck. A purchase would solve your problem.

    Hi xiaolin,

    can you please see post #31 in this thread. This keylogger seems to have its way even though low-level keyboard access is denied by MD. Can anyone else conform my findings?

    MD can pass the first test only. There is no protection for screen/clipboard capturing yet.

    Thank you for the confirmation xiaolin! This does not, btw, cause me to lose faith in this terrific program :)

    I had an older version installed also but Still have three days left on this new beta. It is a nice program.

    What I would like to know & you all have heard me mention this several times before. At what point did beta software become more then that? The general rule before was until it was a released product it remained free to test. Even Microsoft now allows the public to test is OS's for free until they are released. Although back then they didn't have public beta's per say. Only a few were chosen and when the product went live, the "beta Testers" would get a free copy for all their work.
