    Hi guys,

    This may seem like a great first spam post :)

    But I'm looking for beta testers for my new freeware anti-malware software
    http://www.runscanner.net

    It is stil in beta and is supposed to become a "superior" version of hijackthis/autoruns (and much more)

    All the help and advice of security professionals is welcome.

    I'm trying to combine the "strong" things of both

    - Scanning of 73 startup/hijack items. (I'm trying to get them all, more to come)
    73 Is already more than both programs
    - Verification of file signatures and whitelisting (combination of the "strong" things of both programs)
    - MD5 hash calculation of files. (and is a later version online lookup of the result)
    - Import / export of .run files. (very userfriendly for people that want to help you with your "malware problems"
    ... (read the website)

    Comparing logs? Useful for integrity checking/security benchmarking.

    What exactly do you understand by "comparing logs"?

    A feature which allows to compare two logs taken on different moments and see what´s changed.
    This can be done using external tools, but would be nice to have it built-in.
    Hope it´s clear now.

    Good idea (but not for version 1.0)
    I'll add it to my todo list for 1.5

    Quite like this app.Using about 13.5 meg after ther the scan.

    One queery.Processess on the first tab show two instances of "generic host process for Win 32 Services" and if I go to the "kill process" tab they don't show.

    Taskmanager and my Firewall show no "generic host process" as I have the DNS service disabled.

    Probably your app is using them to run maybe and not showing in the kill tab?

    Have you tried :
    - Refresh the processes list (check if you see the svchost)
    - Do the scan
    - Refresh the processes list (check if you see the svchost)

    The wintrust verify is probably using the svchost.

    OK rerun the tests without the MD5 checksums and the two generic hosts still show up in the Auto Runs tab but not the kill process tab even after refresh.

    Tried to kill explorer.exe and Firefox but no go.

    No probs killing those processess through XP's taskmanager.

    I found the problem, I changed something in the current version without testing.
    Should be fixed in the next build.
