    Anyone have any experiance with this software good or bad? Looks like a good idea if it works.Any known conflicts with other software ? I don't mind spending the cash if it secures my computer a little more. Allready have f/w,a/v,a/t,a/s,and hips all top notch but if it'll make me more safe i'll try it.http://www.explabs.com/index.html

    I had it running since April on a few of my home machines... It never alerted anything actually. Since my last system crash on my main box I've reduced some security apps and SocketShield & CyberHawk were the first two to go. I still have it running on NAS along w/ NOD32, ewido & Sygate FW. Figure it can't hurt. To be honest, I'm still running beta version, wouldn't pay for the app.

    Hi, any place to get this beta now? And I wonder u can still update the beta? If u cann,t then it will be pretty useless I think.

    It seems to me that socketlock (freeware from grc.com) would be as good or better. I use it.

    dont they function differently tho? socketshield protects against exploits whereas socketlock prevents users from accessing raw sockets.

    OK I was just going by the name. Socketlock is useful though.

    korb, SocketShield beta on my NAS up-dated on 071906. So I would say the answer is yes.
