    I have been trying Online Armor beta 7.0.0.1862 for the past several days, and it is working great on my Laptop! This has been the lightest version for me yet. The only time I can even tell it's there is when opening a new application for the first time. There is a very brief pause while OA checks Emsisoft's database, but when I open the application again there is no longer any pause. You can download it if you have beta updates enabled.

    Please note that some Windows 8.1 users are having issues when using Standby, and I believe that is the only reason this beta has not been released as a stable public release. Their working on a fix for it now. Give it a try, and if you encounter any bugs then please report them to Emsisoft.

    Here is the change log: http://changeblog.emsisoft.com/2013/09/22/beta-updates-2013-09-22/

    I have the current beta running on VM and it's running well. I really like that it classifies something as virus or malware and blocks it. I got a lot of those when I was running Baidu and OA together as a combo. Very nice so far.

    Absolutely agree with how well Online Armor 7.0.0.1862 has evolved for the betterment...I now like it so much that I bought a 3 pc license and it works beautifully on all my units....I tried to love Kaspersky IS 2014 but the slow-downs when using the web were excruciating....Great job Emsisoft!!

    I have to take back my quote above as I actually had to revert to the stable version as the beta, while using low CPU and RAM like the current stable version, for some reason makes my desktop replacement fans spool up and down annoyingly on a regular basis. Reverting back fixes that annoyance.

    C'est la vie.

    Is the final version coming out soon? It's been 1 year now since OA 6.0 was released.

    Same, works fine for about an hour, and then starts acting up and freezing the computer.

    It's working fine here. o_O

    I wish they will give us an option to select what components to get updates. I don't need whitelist and domain database updates, just the necessary components for the program itself.

    Sure. I've used both comodo and OA for a while now. The thing I like most about OA is the HIPS and it's notifications. In this newest version I noticed that it was actively blocking malware really well. Since I already use sandboxie, I really don't need the sandbox or Virtualization in Comodo's firewall. Both of them are light on the system, comodo maybe slightly lighter. Both have great support and active forum's. I do like that comodo has the cloud AV checking files. Other than that they both are good options for stand alone firewalls.

    Maybe an issue with OA and appguard perhaps.

    Did you make OA a power app, and make the needed memory guard exceptions for OA in AG? There are actually quite a few exceptions you would need to safely run the two together. I have been running them together without any problems, but I have several exceptions defined which were needed.

    What other real-time security software do you have installed? What OS are you using?

    I believe the whitelist updates are part of the cloud which keeps good applications from being blocked which is also part of the defense to block malware. Why would you not want the whitelist, and domain database to update?

    Because I have my own whitelist and domain list.

    Yes, but using AG 4. I loved OA back in the day, but sadly they are putting all interest in EAM, and slowly degrading (neglect) OA.
    It seems like a replay of "First defense" the best program ever!

    This is not an officially released beta. Official beta's are release in the EMSIsoft forum beta section. Getting them from anywhere else, you may not really know what you are downloading.
