    It seems that NoVirusThanks turns into an 'i want your money" editor...
    Exactly like the IDSecuritysuite: ~ Removed Link to Dangerous Site ~

    Is there any chance to expect a cure against cupidity?

    I guess you can ask the support for a trial code (15 days) like their other products.

    Every company in the world starts with someone who got the skills and the will to either make money or live their dream.

    Your statement here is just completely unfair to this guy/girl and a mod should remove your post and this of mine.

    hi,

    My post was just an epidermal reaction to a spam campaign (3 posts in a few minutes to promote 3 paid products).
    Then i'm really wonder why my post should be removed?

    With NVT we have a typical example of Taylorism/Foridism:
    At the beginiing was HIPS pionneers like ProcessGuard and SystemSafetyMonitor designed to fight unblacklisted malwares.
    Theses system expert hips monitor api calls to detect or/and prevent a suspicious activity.
    Registry, message hooks, physical memory, Win directory, dirvers installations etc...
    NVT is simply developping a special tool for each one of theses hips defense.
    And if there is no chance to expect a cure against cupidity, there is perhaps registry and message hooks monitors on dev. cooking.
    It's of course their right and their strategy, as it is mine to give my opinion circumsribed by law limitations.

    I personally do not need such tool.
    First because Windows HARDENING is enough to counter most (<100%) Ring 0 rootkits and keyloggers.
    And in a second manner, there is excellent free and paid HIPS which provide a very effective protection (Defense Wall, Sandboxie, OSSS/OA/Comodo).
    More over several free tools already exsists that do the same job and maybe in a better way...

    Oops, Spam campaigning ...:eek: that's hard to digest... :ninja: If you check my started threads you will get to know how many different new products I have introduced in wilderssecurity. Be it paid or free, the main thing is whether it is useful or not. I found those three products useful and not yet posted... If its spamming then I have to say that there are so many unpaid spammers in Wilders, may be you haven't noticed earlier.:cautious:

    I like some of the NVT programs myself, but I tend to agree with kareldjag -- 3 products posted bing-bing-bing for the same company is edgy, to say the least.

    As a user I also felt the same way as kareldjag. I've looked at these programs, and I just didn't see anything new. Having 3 new modules come out doing things that are already built into other software, and then having to pay for them separately, left me not very inclined to bother looking.

    Sorry my mistake then. I shouldn't have posted about paid products this way. I will keep this in mind...
    But although these products cover only part of the security arsenal of someone, I thought it might cover up the gap in layered security setup of somebody... Now I think I might be wrong...
    I was obviously NOT promoting these products...

    Regards

    Isn't this tool promising more than it can deliver.
    Maybe the malware driver should load before the NVT one and then... well... It's loaded...

    But for loading it should be installed first. I guess DRP will block that...

    From an antivirus programmer.
    The problem with whitelists is always the same: false positives, impossible to collect all programs around the world...

    Well... its driver can be killed, a rootkit, mbr infectors, etc.

    From a whitelist user.
    The problem with blacklists is always the same: infections, impossible to collect all malware around the world...

    Anyhow, this doesn't interest me, because it's paid and very limited in scope. Also with 64-bit PatchGuard, it's virtually useless.

    I don't see nothing wrong to post this paid product, although I also don't see any advantage of split the protection in several products, maybe for somebody could be ok to add a layer if he was using other products.
    The tool is for 32bit only there is no PatchGuard

    Anyway if this really does not interest to anybody will go down in the forum and then it will be forbidden, so I don't see a problem.
