    I have questions about OA Free. The first one is that as far as i could find out it does not use stealth like many others, is this a set back or is stealth mostly overrated. I am not saying a FW must have stealth, it just happens to be that the ones i used so far have Stealth, so i am just used to it.

    The second one is...does it work good with MSE?(Most likely it will, but i still wanted to ask. )

    How did you find out that it is not stealth?
    With ShieldsUP?

    Cheers

    Well no, in order to check that with GRC i would have hat to install OA Free which i have not.

    No i seem to recall having read something like that in a thread here, although i can not remember the thread name right now. I also assume that OA Free does not have stealth because the feature list for the free version reads that it only has "Standard mode Firewall".

    So my questions from my previous post still count...for me that is. :)

    run-safer puts the program into a limited rights environment.

    You'll notice its behaviour protection when you cut and paste text from say your browser to another program - OA will warn program is recording keystrokes.

    So even on the free version, it's sensitive to any information being copied.

    Regarding run safer, if Mike is reading, for new users, OA should show screenshots on their tall emu website how OA prevents programs installing in the background.

    It does work through, and it's a breeze to use, can't believe it's in the free version. :)

    I've replaced Comodo with Online Armor. I don't expect I'll ever change back.

    Online Armor Win7 v. 4.0.0.5 Public Beta was released today.
    Be aware this is still beta software, so don't install it on a production machine!

    I saw someone ask earlier (I forget where.. Think it was on OA forums)
    A process monitor would be very good.. Maybe even like Threatfire's Process Monitor? I thought that was very informative.
