There is any ruleset for the Files and Registry Shield feature? or something similar?
there are no official "ruleset", I hope one of the expert can give us guidance to employ it in the right way
We can just copy the rules of Comodo
In fact with this method you can protect the host file or the autoruns directly without using the modules of Online Armor
I believe there is already some registry protection present in OA without the addition of rule sets. I will have to check with them over at Emsisoft.
testing out OA Premium huh...
-- Have been searching for that also but OA forums points me towards the same link given to guest
That's a good idea
Yes I got tired of Comodo I'm not saying that is worst or better just wanted to try OA again, also I had a premium license that I got for free.
Nope, there is not. OA already protects sensitive system areas. The shields are intended to introduce additional protection for the not generic (user specific and personal) data (documents, source codes, paintings, movies, any other projects). The shields rules override OA own rules if they intersect.
by default - following paths are guarded -
1) c:\*, document&settings
i have added my custom picture/document/software paths to fileshield. Allowing to access to it only by trusted programs and a deny access to unknown and untrusted programs.
Rightnow, i have small problem in saving the documents into these protected areas when file sheild is activated. I created a thread over at OA forums and an devloper is actively looking into it.
Hm. Really? This is very promising information
-- Same here! Left one pc (XP SP3) with CIS though. I seem to see that OA Premium's File Shield actually does shield the files or folders but it let's the user see the contents. You get it as a read-only. While in CIS if you click a "Blocked folder" it will be blocked and you will not see it's contents(same as Outpost Pro). Saw a post at OA forums about Windows still having to view supposedly locked files by OA. Quite nice observation LINK
Yes. When i save something, (say excel), the excel app will not be responding for around 1 min or so and then the sheet gets saved. This can be reproduced through firefox/ie even.
