Some very crude sort of playing with CH and malware. First thing after install I got warning from SnioopFree that is logging keyboard, never got such a warning while installing any security software. Seconly it disabled system restore, still the bug remains. It seems that it has some signature based protection as well because it detectecd some malware with esxact name as u will see down. It is really hard for me to judge its effectiveness as unlike other softwares it is not a scanner or malware remover, it seems more of a malware blocker + real tiem cleaner as needed. Also it is not good to judge it by installing some malware which work just like a legitimate software like some rouge antispyware/ anti-malware software. It is not the fault of CH if it they are not dtected by CH. I saw that it monitors Start up Registry enteries very well and will give a pop up with warning whether the entry is by a legitimate software or a malware. However it still need work. Sometime i saw incinsistent no of pop ups on running same malware more than once and some time there was a significant lag between the nlawrae event and the pop up from CH. Here is the pop up from SnoopFree on install of CH.
