    Just copied and paste this into a new title to avoid mixing build versions.

    Does this version also apply to the free release?

    I think thats important to specify so new users can get a real feel for what extras are expected should you go full.

    Thank you for the heads up. About time I got up off of my wallet and grabbed the Full vers. Can not think of a better reason.

    Never mind.

    I answered my own question by checking the version at Download.Com which indeed reflects the version the same as above.

    As far as getting off my wallet, it had better show itself impressive enough to eclipse what i got going on right now and theres no reason to think it won't, but a wise man never makes knee jerk reactions from the hastey statements of others but from actual experience in real time in front of them.

    Totally understood Easter. But for my needs\surfing style\and resource deprived lap top the FW with HIPS soots me just fine. (coupled with a slimmed down AV\alternate tweaked browser and Sandboxie for the nights I might take a detour on the net). It is as close as I will ever come to a suite. Which as a general rule I despise and avoid like the plague.

    I have a problem brewing i think. Hopefully this will sway my decision to one side.

    I absolutely am impressed with Comodo D+ but then who wouldn't after years of depending on Kerio 2.15 from abandoning ZA in the Windows 98 Days.

    I tried them all and never was satisfied because of either usefulness or issues of one sort then another.

    Then i took the plunge again with MikeNash's OA and found it great and exciting, but still soemthing was missing, might have just been my lack of understanding it at the time, but i been keeping a very close eye and vigilance on Mike's progress with OA and it's obvious the poor guy has worked feverishly to perfect it to the point now it's an award winner plus has solicited a very loyal and satisfied following for many.

    I believe intensive comparions and competition with like products can do nothing less but propel these apps to near perfection as a software can reach.

    So here i am again, been quietly awaiting OA's update and it's here so off i go to make haste to hopefully realize all the benefits that are available, then if satisfied must go all the way with the full version like anyone else. I know plenty of effort is gone into it and i like others really appreciate it.

    Hi Easter,

    Lets just talk about one of the new features of Online Armor (free and paid) - the green border around apps that are currently running in "Safer" mode.

    Try this for a test:

    1) Download a file from a browser you are running "Safer" and launch it from the browser. You will see, because the process was created by the browser (with lowered rights) that this program inherits the green bordering - a nice indication that the program is also running in "Safer" mode.

    If you save the file from the browser, and then manually open it with a double click - it will run "Normal".

    This may cause some new users to complain that when they download a desired file, it cannot install because of a permissions issue - BUT if this were a drive by, it would not be able to (for example) write to windows, the root of the drive, or program files directory.

    This is a really cool feature (runsafer itself did not change, just the visualisation of it) - but the bordering/indication really makes it clear what's happening. I thought about not including the bordering in the free version - but it's just too cool not to make it available for everyone.

    2) Set your Outlook/Outlook Express/EmailClientOfChoice to run-safer. Restart it so you see the border (indicating protection). Now, if you have an email with an attachment (PDF, whatever) - double click it from inside the mail client.

    What you should see is that (in the pdf example) acrobat cranks up as you'd expect (or foxit :) ) - with your document - and again, with a nice green border around it.

    Do the same with your IM clients - except for when you want to update them - and you have a nice, easy and visible layer of protection that really works across several key infection points. You can also run MS Word, MS Excel as safer as well with ease. (On my system I'm running Outlook, my chat clients and web browsers (FF and IE) in safer mode now)

    With the addition of this visualisation - run safer is now firmly my favorite OA feature. You could experiment further with changing some other settings (for example: turn off prompts in webshield, turn off prompt on unknown and auto-allow trusted to connect to the net to off as well) and you'd probably get fairly few popups - with runsafer doing the heavy lifting in terms of protecting you against accidental clickage.

    Sorry to ramble on - but while there's talk of the new OA, I thought I would take the time to highlight one of it's most overlooked features (and , IMHO one of the coolest)

    Mike

    Ah, the guy who keeps the same timetable as me but on the opposite site of the planet.

    Greets Mike.

    I had no idea, and in spite of some who might make critic of that, i think it's very useful as well as engenious, but then any new safer innovation is a masterpiece in my eyes ;)

    It is however entirely up to the user to choose whether to download that internet file as Run Safer though right? In that case theres their choice to KEEP that file installable, right? (New Features Bring These Type Q's)

    At any rate i feel your excitement and share it's quality safe approach. The borderline is a bonus IMO because it serves as the visual aid it bringing attention to the user that the particular file is running with Limited Privileges so as not to jeopardize a foul intrusion should it be one indeed.

    :D :D

    If you start a new process from the browser then automatically it will "inherit" the reduced rights. So, if you try to download something to install, you should save it - and then double click separately... BUT if you download something by accident, view a video, torrent, whatever - it will auto-apply the safer - it is very, very handy.

    Hi JohnnyBravo,

    Two questions: What version of Windows are you using(is it 64bit?)
    Have you installed OA ever before?

    And one comment - in learning mode, OA will learn - you should not get popups...

    If you registered with the same username at our forums, I will manually activate you right now...

    Cheers

    Mike

    Thanks for the CLEAR explaination, now that's a horse of a different color indeed and compliments to the chef for the ingredients Mike. :)

    All The Best

    Are you sure you system is OK ? It seems something is eating the handles there. Being at your place I'd took Process Explorer and carefully looked through all the processes to see what resources they take.

    Yes, this is a good security feature - similar to how SafeSpace handles downloads. By the way, I'm not getting the border around programs that I've set to "run safer". Can you suggest what I should check? I didn't have any issues during the install and OA seems to be running normally apart from this. Also, regarding the color can it be selected from a palette is it is fixed?

    Do you still not get the green border if you right click on the program in the list and select - advanced options - run safer?

    Also you will not get a green border for a program while it is running sandboxed.

    Just gave it a try myself on VLC. The border is subtle but no doubt there. Very nice. :thumb: I may be saying good-bye to one of my other protection apps. (and its` related full-time loaded service).

    Finally, this version works great on my pc. No more explorer error in deed. The green border also works fine. No problems or conflicts. A very nice release.

    Congrats Mike and thanks.

    I change firewalls from time to time as hobby, but this one will now be one of the "usual" ones. My only wish for the future, is trim down CPU Time consumption. That would be great. :D

    Hi,

    the only thing I detected so far is again a delay with prompts.
    If a program has changed and I start it again, it takes a few seconds sometimes till the prompt appears.

    Cheers

    Not any longer. The green border now indicates how you are currently running it, not how you may have it set up. So if I have a program set to run safer, and I right click and choose Run Normal- no green border. Conversely if I have a program set up to run normal, and I right click and choose Run Safer, the green border is displayed.

    Since updating to 2.1.0.130 i experience extremely slow startups. It takes literally minutes before the desktop shows up.

    Any idea, Mike ?

    I've run into the same prob. Set IE to "run safer" thru advanced mode. If I right click and select "Tall Emu on the web"... I get the green-border. If I open IE thru the start menu.... no green bordero_O Took a screenie showing both browsers opened but it exceeded the forum's upload-limit

    That's because when open the browser from within OA it always opens in run safer mode. Since you didnt set it to always run safer in the program settings, when you start it from the start menu it runs normal.

    It ran twice on my PC too. After first run I rebooted and tweaked some rules/ settings. Then i rebooted and the wizard ran again with reboot. Seems a bug.

    Any other such reports?
