    According to their site, it says the free version is 32-bit only, like SpyShelter?

    I've never used NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro. Is it fairly light on resources?

    Also, anyone know when the latest version will be released to the general public with a trial?

    So after using the new version for about an hour, I find it very clean and easy to use.

    I did find two things weird though,

    The option to "Allow All Software from the Programs Files Folder"

    Is enabled by default, would it not be better if it was disabled by default?



    Also I can't see anyway to block .com, .bat, .msi?

    If there is no way to block them please consider to add them as a option if it's not a lot of trouble.

    I tried the first two versions for a couple of days each but don't recall if "Allow All Software from the Programs Files Folder" was enabled on default. If it was, I disallowed it. I agree with you that it is better if its not allowed.

    I only allowed system files. It took me one reboot and about 15 minutes to set the program up. It was very nice. If you want to use one of this programs, I recommend Exe radar.

    I would say there it is there to make it there alot less popups than when it is unticked and the software "assumes" your computer is secure. This would benefit the user alot in terms of usability.

    They only seem to have a 32 bit version to try out. For the price they offer the program at, they should have the 64 bit version to try out as well. Even a 5 day trial is enough. More people would buy im guessing, if the program runs well. Effectiveness but alot of times compatibility is a high factor.

    A couple days ago, I installed the Free version (1.3.6.5). If I were to purchase the Pro version:

    1) Would it be the new 2.3 version?
    2) Does it install right over the top of the old version -- or is it necessary to first uninstall the old version and then do a clean install of the Pro version?

    Thinking about trying this product. What is the procedure for installing new software after you install this product? Do you have to disable it or does it have some type of install mode? Thanks for your help.

    @A20

    Most beginner users would receive a lot of popups if it is disabled, so for usability we added that option enabled by default. Users can always whitelist the applications they use most frequently and then disable the option "Allow All Software from the Programs Files Folder".

    We should re-add that in the next versions as a plugin probably, but consider few things:

    .msi:
    Are executed (as parameter) by C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe
    More details:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa367988(v=vs.85).aspx

    .bat
    Are executed (as parameter) by C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe

    .vbs .js .wsf
    Are executed (as parameter) by C:\WINDOWS\system32\WScript.exe
    More details:
    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...oddocs/en-us/wsh_runfromwindowsbasedhost.mspx
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Script_Host

    @TomAZ

    1) Yes
    2) You need to first uninstall the old version completely and then install the new version

    @huntnyc

    Actually there is no "Install Mode" as option, in most cases if you have the option "Auto-Allow Microsoft Windows System Files" enabled and "Allow All Software from Program Files Folder" enabled you should have very few popups displayed during the installation process, most installations execute cmd.exe and rundll32.exe as external system files. Anyway we plan to add such an option in the next versions.

    @Moosehead77

    We will release soon the trial version.

    I think I found a bug.

    I installed it on a fresh Windows 7 64bit.

    Everytime I reboot the protection doesn't turn itself back on, the program loads, I see it in the system tray. When I double click the tray icon, then it starts to protect again.
