Wait wait... the actual full program... out tomorrow?
I have been waiting a long time for this old war axe to become shiny and new. I am actually excited about them.
I was close to buying a life time license a year or two ago, but there wasn't 64bit compatibility at the time. Now that it isn't an issue any longer, I plan to buy a license assuming they are still lifetime, and reasonably priced.
It appears the US version costs $30. 119yuan = about $18.70, so I guess Americans have to pay a little more?
I would say its only fair, as we make more money and they offer such a generous lifetime license anyway. I am glad the Chinese get a discount on a home grown project. I think more home-grown products should have discounts for the country they comes from.
And the next project——Twister Internet Security(with FW).
LET'S WAITING TOGETHER……
Hope the firewall has a setting like the old one where you can block "all" "in & out" unless defined by rules. I liked that as it was a simple way to know that no info leaks were happening unless you want them to.
Also when is V8 gonna be uploaded? its the 8'th in china now and i don't see it up on the English site yet.
Will that be a separate license, and an update to the existing program?
Version 8 is ready for download.
they made it seem like it was going final when its only beta. even the website makes it seem like its final. kinda odd.
just installed it and wow is it loud with alerts of good software.
Website is really slow.
Also, no more 90 day trial. Now only 30 days.
I have not tried this latest release yet, but the alpha I've been using the past few weeks hasn't given me many pop-ups. Funny thing is, as I initiated the download of todays release, I got one. lol
The license can be used.
Old customers may enjoy preferential treatment.
Being one of the first to buy a license for twister on Wilders years ago back in 2008/2009, I can say the new version looks okay, I do miss the simplicity though.. and the second it was installed there were a bunch of registry FP's that could have caused my system a lot of grief. I used to love V7 and really hope these issues will get sorted out.
I miss the color of the older GUI. The new GUIs looks more modern, but a bit bland.
I agree. I had to uninstall it shortly after. I can't trust it on my system with the amount of things it was doing and the FP's it was making.
I preferred it how it used to be, simple and logical. you had your signatures and your HIPS which was very easy to use and configure as it would give you a simple to read alert with a % rating. I also liked the old UI better as it was light for a reason and it was just good and did not require the flashy looks that everyone is going for these days.
Give me an AV like twister but with a simple change. Plain GUI - Simple HIPS - Simple Signatures. Does not need all this registry protect stuff the way its set up now as that should be "HIPS" anyway and not its own separate module. I would be quite happy with the signatures, simple HIPS and a grey/white/black UI, the way it is now just seems messy and this is from a guy that used to go out of his way to upload western malware packs to their database.
I agree, the last version was simple and very good. The new versions detection went down a little bit for some reason...
Anyone having trouble updating? and getting same error as this?
Hmm still cant update the program at all ,and is there anyway to stop twister opening the whole gui when it starts up?.I just want it to start with windows quietly to the system tray.
Same experience here. Cant update antivirus. All looks like is OK, but same warning window as you have on your system.
Thanks for confirmation.I sent email to filsecab.Ill let you know when i have reply.Twister doesnt seem to warn if the database is out of date ,unless 4 days isnt sufficient for a warning?
I think i may have found the problem.Twister auto installs to program files x86.
I uninstalled and reinstalled and set the path to program files (im using 64 bit windows) rather than program files x86 and the updater now works.
