    Hey everyone,

    Some of you may remember the tool Rising PC Doctor that was a big thing a while back. Well it now has finally been updated to support Windows 7! Rising PC Doctor 7 has a whole new UI and looks really nice. Check out some of the screenshots http://rising-global.com/rising_pc_doctor/help/PcDoctor.html

    Anyone thinking about trying it. V7.0 looks really nice :D

    This reminds me of Kingsoft PC Doctor, but more about security.

    Ok make sure you come back and share you opinion. v6 was pretty nice last time I used it. I don't all the security features worked extremely well in v6 but this one really looks like they put a lot of effort into.

    The download link seems to point to v6, I see no download link for v7. Unless I am missing something here, or v7 just isn't out yet.

    I will send them an email and find out why. I thought it was out since the download link was different then last I tried. The setup file use to be RPCDOC.exe so I thought it was new. Will update when I find out.

    I thought the same thing when I looked at the screenshots.

    Got a message from support saying that the download package on their site is the latest and it should be v7 once you install it.

    I'm going to test this via VM tomorrow, and see how it protects.

    Haha I don't know what it is, but almost every Chinese vendor makes Candy-like GUIs.
    They are kind of nice to look at, and it's very easy to see what the features will do. I like it :D

    Yeah they are very skilled at that, the last PC Doc though was not very good at security but had a pretty good over-view of your machine. I hope they improved that, kept it light, and it works better with PCAV on a machine then Kingsoft.

    I downloaded it, and it said it wasn't compatible with 64-bit...Couldn't test it. On my test bed machine though, I got an installer error.

    Thanks for this. I was just about to give it a test in VM. Oh well.

    I tested it on 64bit win 7, and didn't get any errors. The VM did run like crap though, and it was a very short test.

    Hmmm, I may have to re-try it then, on a different machine this time.

    Did it usually act bad or was it due to Rising?

    Not quite sure what was going on. I tried it twice, and each time I would get a few links in and the machine was lag badly or freeze. For the few links I got through, I didn't get any alerts. I was unable to get to task mgr, so I'm not sure if it was infections causing the slowdown, or just Rising. After the second attempt to test the program, I gave up.

    Ah still sounds like Rising PC Doctor does not provide the best security experience again it would once again be classified as a helper tool to provide over all analysis of the system with limited cloud protection.

    v6 did provide a pretty good over-view of the system for security reasons and the cloud scanner did detect some "new" items in v6 when I used it so I am pretty sure they would have improved that. I have never seen the URL filter in action in any of the versions so it must really only be for chinese malware sites.

    Time for my review:

    First off about the real time protection, from my analysis it does not have real time protection (and I doubt v6 did either). Now when attempting to start Malware URL Filtering or Malware Shield you get the prompt to install Rising Personal Firewall or Rising Antivirus. So its more of an aid to your current security software then actually security software. However it does have a fully useable Trojan Scanner that is connected to the Rising Cloud Security Network. Have not tested how well its detection is since its kinda slow on my old machine, thanks to my 2000ish processor and XP is running way under the normal specs.

    Memory usage: About 15k on my old Windows XP Box

    Security Features: The Cloud AntiTrojan System, it also has a USB protection system.

    Personally my favorite thing about it is the Cloud Process Manager that gives a safety rating. For all the tools it includes its very light and won't take up much space. Personally its not on the front end of the Security Prevention tools but for what it does it seems to work pretty well and does what its designed to. It does not seem like it will conflict with other security programs. I have been unable to tell how good the cloud anti-trojan is but I may install it on all my machines incase someone in my house gets them infected again for a backup scan.

    Pretty impressed with Rising Devs at the moment. The first version I installed of Rising PC Doctor had constant low cpu usage with tray.exe right now Rising PC doc just updated and reloaded itself and tray.exe is no longer constantly using CPU.
