    I'm not sure, it's been ages since I tried Returnil products. Apparently their site has been suspended briefly because of a problem with their hosting service.

    I want to put this in my exclusion list, can this be considered "safe" enough to go ahead?


    Code:
    C:\Users\t3ster\Desktop
    C:\Users\t3ster\Documents
    C:\Users\t3ster\Saved Games
    C:\Program Files\Sandboxie
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Security Client
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

    I would not exclude your desktop or SBIE? Why do you want to exclude your desktop. SBIE works just fine with Shadow Defender. I have my sandox on another drive, and they work just fine together.

    Both Patrick (SDMod) and myself have been in frequent communication with Tony during the last few weeks, prompting him to come in here and address the SD faithfuls. In the past I have also had my doubts about the legitimacy of SD development. The lack of support for the last two years had made me (and many others) think that SD may have been hijacked.

    I know now that this is not true. I recently suggested to Tony the inclusion of a RAM buffer and for the buffer to be switching automatically to disk when the user-defined RAM allowance is full. This was in the beginning of October and Tony has managed to code these options in less than two months! Only the program's original author would have enough affinity with the code in order to program such changes so quickly. To me this is an obvious indication that Tony is back (for good I hope this time).

    The reasons for his lengthy absence? The issue of the YesShield program? Has Tony sold part of the code to someone else and the result is YesShild? Obviously YesShield is not exactly the same as SD, taleblou has tested it against an older TDSS rootkit and it failed. Maybe Tony has sold part of the code, keeping some integral part out of the deal. These are speculative questions that Tony will hopefully be able to answer in the future. I for one am delighted that the lines of communication with SD have been re-opened, and look forward towards the forthcoming TRIM-compatible version!

    Hi Tony, welcome back! I'm sure everybody is happy to see you posting on this forum. Please let me tell you about your new version... V. 346. I've had it for a couple of weeks on my Vista Ultimate 32 bit, and everything was fine except that every 3-4 reboots, exiting shadow mode, my computer would take forever to shut down, actually I would have to hit the main start button to effectively reboot my computer.

    I'm back to version .325 for the time being, hopefully you might be able to do something about this problem.

    sdmod you are right:
    Vista Ultimate 32 bit, Intel Core 2 CPU T7400 @2.16 GHz 2.16 GHz, 2GB RAM - Assigned buffer RAM: 1GB. My hard drive is a standard Hitachi ATA device. I have also excluded as much as possible SD with my antivirus (Avira 2013), and I have no other security except for Sandboxie.

    As I mentioned it happens every 2-3 reboots, and I suspect when the RAM buffer is totally used...

    Just thought it might be a good idea to say how much ram buffer you were using and how much ram you have, drive details etc, all our systems are unique to us. I don't mean to get in the way of your question, just a thought :)

    Hello, i remember seing one IT guy (A moderator on cleaning software forum) saying that wiping (shredding) files on your hard drive should be limited as it ages your HD.

    How exactly does Shadow Defender ''wipe files'' when you reboot ?

    Ok thanks for the info!
    I save a lot to my desktop for later reference. So everytime I reboot my desktop files are there in the state I left it in.
    Maybe I should move the desktop folder to a separate partition/drive.

    Yeah the desktop might not be a safe place to exclude, because a lot of malware can attack generic directories, i.e. temp directories, user app directies and the like. It'd be best to store thank kind of stuff on a separate partition.

    Shadow Defender Exclusions

    Can someone tell me if i'm doing this right?
    I'd like to exclude my security software from SD so it doesn't wipe away my definitions, updates etc.

    The extension is adblock just so you know

    Re: Shadow Defender Exclusions

    No,
    and you have to do this:

    Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
    Click the View tab.
    Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.


    "C:\ProgramData\
    "C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\
    "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming

    search security software programs and place exclude.
