    I just got back from reading a forum where the script kiddies hang out. One user posted this (translated from German):

    "The new Process Guard 3,0 blocks Bifrost and all other advice pityless; -)

    only the good old Execution method goes past there still to; -)

    Who this program has is approximately as well as everything protected."


    That is why I think ProcessGuard is the most powerful security program on my computer. There is a learning curve to learning how to use it but with intelligent use, it is virtually impossible to get infected.

    I like version 3. It seems that with each version, the learning curve becomes less steep.

    On this same website there was talk of a newer version of BiFrost being built that could possibly bypass Tiny Firewall. That was sort of shocking to me because Tiny, properly configured is very difficult to get around. These guys work very hard to defeat security programs.

    I could never put full trust in a scanner or firewall again after reading some of the things I read. The closest I have to full trust is PG 3

    The problem with firewalls and especially anti-virus programs is they will never be able to be as good at what ProcessGuard does unless they end up basically becoming ProcessGuard. By that I mean you need to allow certain applications (operating system and user selected ones) on the system to do certain things. So you can't just "block" everything. If they could just block everything I would suspect the features would have eventually filtered into those products.

    However since you cannot block everything there will always be a need for a program like ProcessGuard to provide the best security possible.
