What is "WSF 101"?
Wilders Security Forum 101?
I guess it means learning from all the information posted here.
Eset Security Suite 3.0 RC1
Firefox 126.96.36.199 (Opera 9.23 wasn't able to open lots of pages)
Don't miss anything ^^
That's my setup on some 98SE systems (Avast on-demand) + Tiny Watcher.

I'm still running the same setup listed in my sig. Only been updating Online Armor AV+ to the newest beta version.
My security setup is still the same, but I had to ditch "Script Defender", because its uninstaller doesn't work properly, it screwed my system partition and that is unacceptable.
I allow an incomplete uninstall, which is a general disease, but not a damaging uninstall. My patience has also limits.
Read this thread, where you can find additional info to fix it.

You don't need anything else.
At the moment and some other secret stuff.
Please be more specif Erik on what exactly you discovered. I agree the uninstalled is for crap and useless in restoring associations, but i discovered an even more disturbing problem lately since i still am using it in a couple of snapshots. Even after "execute this script" on .vbs files, it somehow renders them completely unresponsive anyway. That IS a problem, but Doug Knox's repair associations with vbs files corrected it 100% just as before.
Funny thing, the .reg files and .bat file "execute" when ScriptDefender's prompt alerts, but the vbs files are silent. Definitely a serious bug, and also with the uninstaller no less.
Still, i'm keeping it on a couple of snapshots and checking each association it's supposed to guard whether they launch or not after allowing them, plus i have to check ALL other associations like .com and such after removing to make sure theres some of them redeemable.
Shame really, since this is a script interceptor thst all users really could benefit from if only it was improved on and corrected.
