    Sent my email to Ruiware to get 30-day free trial, around 15 min. ago. Next I received two email with these subjects:
    Never got my trial key as they offered.

    If it detects "Malware-like action", it is protecting you. Even if it's the installer from WAR ;)

    Hello, been a year that a I don't install this software, someone can tell me if WAR has auto-update of the program? And if I set 0 for the prompt it will block it or ir will be quarantined?

    Is WAR a good alternative for AppGuard ?

    As the "new" AG (5.x) only is subscription based and WAR has Lifetime License (I need 3) available at the moment.

    Thx

    Edit: I run this in combination with EAM, NVTERP and Sandboxie.

    u have more than enough protection with eam, nvterp and sandboxie.. eam and sandboxie is even enough or only sandboxie with windows defender. why so much overkill?.. thats pure paranoya.

    Sandboxie I don't use all the time. EAM / NVTERP and AG are resident and never had a problem with it and they run fine.

    Pure Paranoia ? I don't think so, Id rather prevent then have to heal later on.

    But I just was asking if WAR is a good Alternative for AG.

    if anyone has overkill, I do lol

    I personally think AG is really good. in my setup it is much quicker at catching new files then the rest of my apps.

    I love AG, but the new AG is subscription based and thus looking for an alternative, thus thinking of WAR or something else (which has Lifetime time license) to replace it.

    Have other had a similar problem with Winpatrol/Ruiware?

    I purchased Winantiransom (3 lifetime licences) with a money back guarantee. WAR had unfortunately too many FP's to be used on the famify PCs.

    I asked my money back. They didn't answer to this email. I sent another one. They finally answered and unactivated my license (WAR stopped working as it should have). This all happened in the end of November.

    They however, did not give me my money back. (I had to wait for a while to see my December and January VISA logs).

    I sent 6 days ago an email and asked, where my money is. No answer. The company seems to have a very low moral. (Actually, this is also seen in the hype they have on WAR.) This is very different from the one Bill Pytlovany used to have (I have had Winpatrol a LONG time).

    It seems I have to contact my credit card company (VISA) :(

    Bret Lowry, the founder of Ruiware, now contacted me. He apologized and promised to act ASAP.
    This happened after I sent another email asking them to answer also here at Wilders :)
    Bret may comments this later.

    It is not terribly well rated for effectiveness, although it comes from the developer of WinPatrol, which I love and have used for many years

    You can try different themes of WAR, you can't miss it.

    it is pretty much another anti exe Rasheed. Not just antiransomeware as cruelsister pointed out and that is why people say it has false positives. All good antiexe's give a popup on new exe's.

    I tried all the different themes and do not see a shadow. Is it just your computer?
