I installed Regdefend (trial) on a clean install of XP Pro SP2 virtual machine using MS Virtual PC 2004. I rebooted the VM and made sure Regdefend started up properly. Left the default settings alone. Next, I ran Regtest. Immediately I get the following Regdefend alert: "Regtest.exe tried to modify the following registry VALUE With this Data This item is in the Auto Starts registry group Process: path to regtest.exe Registry Key: HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run Registry Value: 1regtest1" Now, at this point it doesn't matter whether I "Allow" or "Block", the end result is the same. I initiate Test 1, block a couple of alerts and all modifications fail (in other words, good result - regdefend working). Next I go to Test 2. I see what might be an alert but the virtual machine reboots before I can be sure. It goes through boot-up but as soon as it gets back into Windows, and I click OK on the Regdefend Trial Edition splash screen, the VM shuts down again and reboots again. As it's shutting down it hangs at "Saving your settings" for a long time. Then it finally reboots all the way back into Windows but this time I get the "Registry Tester Your system can be compromised by malicious software" message. What gives? Why put a test out there that can beat your own software...lol. Was that the point? No one's safe??
