    Do you need a license to beta test this?

    Related to the new drop-down list for "Rule type:" at the prompts.

    If there are no plans to add more options, I think a single checkbox for "Create temporary rule..." would also be sufficient.

    If it is unticked, a permanent rule will be created.
    If it is ticked, a temporary rule will be created.
    Both can be described at the single checkbox.

    Cheers

    After testing one version for 30 days it should be apparent whether it's a product you want to purchase. There's really not much difference between consecutive releases.

    Great work, now i think there is time to skin MD a bit, for some eye candy. Like Comdo. Just my opinion.

    I assume you mean Comodo.
    But should MD really look like chicken in tomato sauce?

    No. :isay:

    One thing I like very much with MD is its straightforward GUI, which looks a bit like most Sysinternals tools.
    IMHO there is really no need for GUI bloat.

    Cheers

    xiaolin I still long for an option in the logging where you can set it to
    ONLY LOG DENIED RULES

    a license is planned - but not in february - not possible.
    i started with 2.44 and shortly after 2.50 cause 2.50 had fixes for win7.
    testing time was gone right on the 29.1.2010 - 2 days ago <gnmpf>
    was just a question with legal purpose...

    I think I miss the old radio buttons, but maybe it's just that I need to get used to the new drop-down dialog. o_O

    I like the current GUI. However, I do no begrudge other users having other choices of "skins." It might even increase sales. Even Ilya finally gave in & provided skin options for DefenseWall's new version (now in advanced beta).

    Re: Malware Defender 2.6.0 final is released

    Xiaolin, why this change? If mdhook.dll is currently enabled, should I disable it?

    Re: Malware Defender 2.6.0 final is released

    Some special programs can't be started when this feature is enabled. And some people do not like a dll be injected into all processes. So I changed the default setting.

    If you do not encounter any problem, it's not necessary to disable it.
