    Hi,
    Can someone please explain to a beginner, why LnS fails to catch PCAudit? I'm using the 2.05 beta and have the enhanced ruleset loaded. I have enabled DLL detection in the advanced optoins.
    My usage up to now has been to allow applications that I know need access to the web (obviously IE being the main one). Is this why PCAudit gets through - because IE is a 'trusted' application?

    Thanks for your help...

    No - just the standard PCAudit :(
    - I understand that no firewall can stop PCAudit2...

    Hey SimonW

    Hmmm Look ā€˜nā€™ Stop v2.05b1 sees the pcAudit v3.0.0.3 .DLL and successfully blocks it, pcAudit v3.0.0.3 fails on my System with Windows XP.

    With LNS 2.05 beta1, just enable the DLL components control.

    Thanks for your help - I've realised my problem :oops:

    All these sites
    http://www.hot4down.com/21/software_3002-2144-9034374.htm
    http://www.lencom.com/desc/indexN16919.html
    http://download.com.com/3001-2144-9034374.html

    refer to the file to be downloaded as PCAudit v1.0

    and to a newcomer like myself I didn't realise that what is actually being downloaded was v2.0...

    this site
    http://www.pestpatrol.com/pestinfo/p/pcaudit.asp

    clearly shows screenshots of each version. The app itself doesn't clearly identify a difference, and it was only when checking file versions from Phant0m 's post that I guessed something was wrong

    And, when I run this, LnS does identify the process correctly.

    Once again, thanks for the help...

    Ok, I take back whatever I'd previously said

    The thing is crafty pos.

    I had task manger, the program to trap my keyboards specialty buttons, and winrar try to connect to the internet.

    Its a nasty form of DLL Injection which LnS isn't trapping....
