    Yes you can do that, your key should then enable the disabled features :)

    Ther are at least two ways it can stop rootkits.
    !. the rootkit probably uses a dropper .exe and PG's security list will ask if you want to allow it to run.
    2. Most rootkits need to install a driver/service again ProcessGuard will alert asking if you really want to install.

    I am sorry to hear that:( Did you get a confirmation of payment back from PayPal? As this is usually very quick within minutes, then the rest of the process is automatic.
    To be sure that you have your key info' by the morning please drop a quick email with your purchase information to support@diamondcs.com.au

    I also note that ntl (my isp) is having severe problems with their email servers ATM and this could also be a problem if they are your ISP.

    Again sorry for any inconvenience. Pilli

    LFC, There normally is no problem but you did not answer my earlier question. Did you receive an payment advice from PayPal with your purchase details? This usually happens almost instantly.

    DCS will be at work soon so hopefully the problem will be resolved ASAP.

    Thanks. Pilli

    Purchases made through Paypal can not be automatically processed sorry, the automatic processing occurs with purchases made through Regsoft but you should receive your license within the next hour or so. :)
    We hope you enjoy the program

    Hi all :)

    Regarding ROOTKITS, PG blocks all rootkits

    There is a type of kit known to me, as a HACK KIT. These are a dropper which in most cases install a ServU server, Iroffer, mIRC, scripts, etc etc. These do then register the tools as services, so you wont see them. In a sense PG stops these too :D

    What to watch out for ? Well when executing one of these kits, it will of course give you many execution alerts. The files will be dropped into an obscure folder, often a new folder hidden many layers deep under the System32 folder. You would see many executions in this folder, often the ServU server would have a green U icon. You would also see service alerts from PG, and it would be a good idea to then deny ALL executions and make note of the folder they tried to run from. You can always contact us for support if you think you got one of these nasties !

    TDS-3 detects a LOAD of these, and I've started naming new ones HackKit.<whatever> to make it clear :)

    I just need to understand something here... PG will provide an alert that something (ie. a rootkit) is trying to install drivers but it won't identify it as such. If you have TDS-3, will it work in conjuncture with PG to state specifically if the thing that has triggered the alert is a rootkit, trojan, etc?

    Hi spiff5000, There are many rootkit definitions in the TDS3 database these are identified in the TDS3 primary list. So yes TDS3 will jump up and tell you about known rootkits, the problem is that rootkits can be modified easily so that no AV / AT can identify them. ProcessGuard will help in two ways, firstly the identification of the dropper executable when it tries to run and secondly identifying that the dropper wants to enable a service/driver install.
    If these events occur other than when you are installing trusted programs from trusted sources then disallow the action until you have done a thorough investigation. First do a web search about the object then either post here on the forums and .zip and or send to DCS for analysiss if you are uncertain.
