    Not much has been said about Rising PC Doctor in a while, I last used it in December and it was updated often and it looked like it's cloud scanner worked.
    I could never figure out if Rising PC Doctor had realtime Antispyware/AntiTrojan protection.

    Anyone tested it recently? If so how did it do?

    Is it worth using?

    Is it's on-demand antimalware scanner any good?

    Um ooooo your install most likely failed due to so much security software running on the machine.

    Anyone know how well Risings Antispyware is?

    Rising Antispyware is just another name of Rising PC Doctor.
    It is different name of the same software.
    They use Rising Antispyware in products for Chinese, Rising PC Doctor for global users.

    sounds not good...

    I would hate to add something new to that setup. My laptop would go on strike.

    I run it since more than a year with all monitors enabled.
    No problems and little resources :thumb:

    On my system I get some updates that won't install, but that's all, so I just disable that monitor without any issues. :)

    What I am really interested in is the Antispyware part of Rising PC Doctor. I could never tell if it was working real time or not. I also noticed the URL blocker only works on IE so I never got to see if that was working.

    I could tell last time I used it that it ran a cloud scan on boot.
     
  17. It has some interesting features, like a Windows updater that can install only critical updates and something that supposedly prevented buffer overflows in IE.

    On the other hand... I hate to say it, but I am extremely suspicious of anything out of China at this point. Commercial Chinese software may be great for all I know, but their government is infamous for its spying tendencies, to the point that I wouldn't be surprised if Rising and the like were required by law to phone home in some way, or install some sort of rootkit.

    (Sure, tell me I'm off base if you want. Would you install software developed in Iran? In North Korea? Do you really want to trust something with your security, when it was developed under the eye of the same government that has backdoors in your power distribution systems?)

    So yeah, at this point I wouldn't really recommend it.

    We can say that any nation has software installing rootkits on everyone's machine. Let's not get into a "don't trust software from this nation" argument and keep discussing the product.

    7 antimalware programs? All running in real-time?
    2 firewalls?
    4 system cleaners?
    There is no way in hell this uses "little resources". A post of this obvious clueless nature should be flagged or something, if only to protect new uninformed users from thinking that this person knows what they're talking about.:rolleyes:

    Why's that? I've personally not had issues with it from what I can remember. Make a snapshot with for example CTM and you should be fine. If it, against belief, crashes, then you can restore that snapshot before Windows even loads. You've a boot console.
