    Safe'n'Sec SysWatch - free for a year?

    Safe'n'Sec has been discussed in this forum a few times, as recently as this recent post. Well yesterday I came across this blog and free offer for Safe'n'Sec and I'm sharing it with all of you.

    Having no prior experience with this software I must say I was taken-back by the time-consuming install which (including program-updates) took an entire hour! I'd sure like to hear about what other's have concluded about this software (bellgamin, what sayeth thou?) ....hopefully, the benefits of the software are well worth the very long install. :doubt:

    Don't bother with this - turns out it's a false promo!!! -- truly sorry about that... :oops:

    I saw this offer on a dutch site this week and tried it out. After installing it Firefox 3.6.12 could no longer be started up, and that was with default settings. IE8 became very slow to start and to work with.

    Perhaps it is a good piece of software, but it is not for me.

    Happened to me as well.

    I hadn't thought to check my license until reading the above comments. Upon inspection, my license also expires in 30-days. I'm really sorry to have brought this false promo to your attention (not to mention wasting an hour to install it)! :oops:

    I do not think it is your fault Aaron Here. Like us you could not know about that problem with the Trial. It is something the company behind it did wrong in my opinion.

    Yes, but I should have validated the license before rushing to post this. :oops:

    @ Aaron Here

    Don't worry, it happens ;)

    *

    Interesting sneaky link :( - http://register.avanquest.com/ABSOF...strement_presse/register_cov_gd.cfm?idcgd=212 - you actually don't need to go through :D

    If you go directly to SnS instead

    You get the EXACT same DL link & file as in the AQ link :p

    Should you choose to purchase

    *

    Anyway inspite of the 30 day limitation, as i wanted to try it out years ago but never got round to it, i'm going to try it in SD, if it doesn't require a reboot to correctly install that is. I have a feeling it will though :(

    What follows is NOT in any way a fully comprehensive test, just a brief play with it.

    XP/SP2 in Admin

    Disabled ProcessGuard to test

    Installed fine Without a reboot :D after allowing various expected alerts from Zemana

    2.gif

    Several times it connected out for files etc = OK

    Initial one time only System Profile took just over 35 minutes = not bad

    Followed by a C\Drive ONLY Scan which took almost an hour. Good thing i didn't include my D\Drive as well :D

    If the above scans etc had finished sooner i wouldn't have been able to post anyway, as Wilders was offline :D

    I set the Threat response etc to Ask action

    ask.gif

    But it still deleted 7 test RK's in a folder on my destop ? = Not good :thumbd:

    Out of ALL the files on my C\Drive it threw up only 4 FP's = Very good i'd say :thumb:

    Detected all the system Hooks, including some Hidden, which just for laughs i deleted, with no harm done. I know what they were though ;)

    del.gif

    DL'd these fresh nasties from various places & tried to run ALL of them

    mt.gif

    Not 1 would even attempt to load/run = Excellent & with several of them i got the Permissions alert = :thumb: Also whilst trying to DL them SnS took over the screen, darkened everything except the alert box asking if i wanted to do this or block etc = Very nice. I can't show a screenie as it wouldn't let me do anything except answer the alert = :thumb:

    I also DL'd a known safe app & successfully installed it with no alerts or problems = :thumb:

    Useful restore feature, havn't tried it though

    rest.gif

    CPU was around 50% during scans :( but only around 2% after :)

    In the short time i've used it, i'd say it's Good & worth trying :)
