Good question I was thinking same thing.
I was just remembering the old days when I used processguard or mamutu and threatfire
Is Faronics Anti-Executable still in alive?
You alone make this forum a better place to visit
Yes it is, it's good to see you posting again!
Yes, it's $55 Cdn as per this link:
I trialled it about a year ago and found it to be very heavy on resources. When I ended my trial, someone in sales pestered me for quite some time trying to persuade me to purchase it, and I had to decline several times before he gave up.
Thank you I missed you guys
Thank you.its nice to talk you again buddy.
I will check it out.i have a licence from 2013 maybe it works
Cool, please let us know.
It's a little pricey that's crazy for anti executable it is cheaper to tweak the system a little and block type of executables file for free or tweak the big virus tunnel IE to block all downloads in real time my 2 cents
What are you guys running for scanning?
You think along the same lines as I do. For scanning, I just use Windows Security provided in Windows 10.
Anti-Executable Standard for Windows with 1 Year Maintenance meaning no software and tech support after 12 months?can not running an expire software may cause bugs in system
I really love hitmanpro alert it's a nice little piece of art
I forgot to mention that built-in smartscreen also catches some nefarious stuff as well.
Maybe, but it mostly just means you won't receive latest software updates, which of course could result in buggy behaviour after a Windows update.
so it's a kind of catch 22. If you don't renew the license, you run the risk of broken, buggy behaviour when Windows changes due to an update.
I n ever try windows defender scaner I know you can tweak it.but does it scan for rootkit?
Just noticed that hitmanpro alert is part of sophos now https://www.hitmanpro.com/en-us/ale...ckups of the,stops and removes the ransomware.
It looks like it has an offline scan method for this:
The link I provided may not be the best source of information, as it is Microsoft, so maybe a bit biased. Honestly, I haven't thought too much about rootkits as being too much of a threat these days. It seems ransomware is the major threat. If you keep Windows and all software, especially browsers, up to date, use a good content blocker (think uBlock Origin from Raymond Hill), and don't click on unsolicited email links, you will likely be near 100% okay. Just my humble, blue-collared unprofessional opinion.
Very true to open weird email is risky
