    I think that this tool deserves separate thread.
    Courtesy to Boost. Thanks for the find.

    Well... LOL. Reminds me; these oooold Pentium and such boxes which I have laying around and occasionally recycle them for a Linux/BSD-based router have MBR record protection included in BIOS. :D Is this no longer the case w/ most motherboards out there?

    Oh, BTW - here's a command-line based backup tool for you MBR :D You only need the first 512 bytes backed up, fits about everywhere. :p

    I am very curious about this application myself, but am clueless how to test it.
    Will this MBR guard be able to stop rootkits from writing to the mbr?

    Well... if you mean testing like whether it does anything, then make a backup (hint above) and try to zero out the MBR or whatever. :D

    I installed it on a friend's PC together with ComodoTimeMachine, because he runs Admin. MBRGUARD + CMT + Download Registry Tweak + Chrome + TrusteerRapport seems to work quite well on his rig (only Hitman Pro on demand right click context scan).

    Interesting that Comodo Time Machine would work with MBRguard installed. I thought CTM needs to modify the MBR...

    You can use it after the install ctm
    But i think dont need, CTM has MBR protection ability
    I tested many killdisk virus with it, CTP protect hdd from all attack

    Oh right, does anybody know when CTM will be implemented in their IS suite?

    Guest,

    Thx for testing, I did not know CTM had this. I remembered there were some MBR vulnabilities with one of the boot to restore providers in the past (at least two years ago). That is why I tried whether MBRGuard worked in combo with CTM (just as a second protection).

    Less is more, :thumb:

    Regards Kees
