    Blaze you will have to wait and see in regards to the interface, it is pretty much finished as it is now. All I can say is its "different" from DiamondCS's other products in look.

    this thread has been splitted; the part regarding TDS has been moved to the TDS3 forum under "TDS4 suggestions"

    regards,

    My suggestion is to be able to disable WG reacting to filenames just because they have multiple periods. If the extension is not one that Windows auto executes, and the guts don't look dangerous to the heuristic analysis, then the file's registered program should be able to use it as data. Perhaps the specific extension would have to be inserted into an approved list.

    Please do not forget the Help and Support Center conflict that WG 3 has on Windows XP (the NAV conflict issue has already been mentioned).

    Also I still think that WG 3 is causing the "mailto" icon to show up on the desktop. Turning off WG 3 results in the "mailto" icon not appearing on my desktop when I active an e-mail call from a webpage to my AOL Communicator e-mail client. :doubt:

    Charles & Kirby, I am certain that the new builds of TDS & WG will be fully XP compatable & that all user suggestions are taken very seriously by Wayne & his team. :D
    Personally I can't wait to start beta testing them, hopefully not in the too distant future :) Unfortunately Wayne is not giving any clues as to when that will be.

    MS finally has unveiled their changes relating to server 2003 so there can finally be worked on that further.

    All NT based systems are currently working in WG4 so nothing to worry about there. Its easier to add support for the newer operating systems then it is Win9x which has been around for ages :)

    I own licences to TDS and Port Explorer and intend to buy one for PG. I am a big fan of DiamondCS.

    I would love to run WG4, but have had problems with running WG 3 on the same machine as RegRun, as discussed in this thread:

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=13722

    So my contribution to the wish list is that I would like to see this problem sorted, though I realise it might be down to RegRun rather than DiamondCS.

    There is a program in the build to replace RegProtection which you might like to give a try, AutoStart Guard. It's brother AutoStart Viewer is already there.

    i am not sure (if it was caused by wormguard), but after installing wormguard, i found that my intellipoint program would not run automatically at startup.. i tried rightclick/scanning a jpg file and some other file with wormguard, and it didn't show anything. when i rightclicked/scanned an html file, wormguard flagged it. it also flagged a vbs test file. so.. maybe in womrguard 4 you could have it give some reply on all files that are scanned instead of just "dangerous" ones.. (of course, i could be missing something) :)

    Try uninstalling just components of wormguard and then reboot and see if intellipoint starts up.

    Hi I am new to the forums.

    Is Wormguard 4 the very same DCS that others have mentioned in topics. One in particular about TDS3 and DCS.

    These 2 programmes work in conjuntion with each other I presume.

    Can I have a link to the DCS site I managed to find a link to TDS in the forums.

    Thanx and keep up the good work. Great forums and very informative for noobs like me.

    Hi Cyborg, See my reply to your TDS post ;) in A guide to what works with TDS3.
    By the way WG4 is not yet available.

    Curiously, the WormGuard i had installed claimed to be version 4, so i'm now confused to only find 3; i uninstalled because it was causing lots of standard installers to crash.

    Anyway, my top wishes:

    - Don't cause lots of standard installers to crash.
    - Give me the option to always ignore multiple extensions; when i try to open Foo-3.2.75.dwg, it's annoying.
    - Raising an alarm due to opening a .xls with the word "virus" in a cell is silly. (File in question actually has "Antivirus" as the word, since it's a list of software and serial numbers.)

    Hey, i just thought i could toss my two cents in:
    You must have gathered a HUGE list of default trojan/worm/virus/joke filenames right? why not put those inside of wormguard's filename blocklist?

    oh, and look into updating the default extension blocklist as well

    A Red / Green dot, worm, button in the tray...something for -
    it's On / it's Off.

    Need to dis-engage WormGuard for certain functions...I can't always remember which way I...

    ....now what was I saying...?

    Y'all have great attitudes and products...keep it up.

    Thanks,
    Karl

    Release date soon :D I really need WG 4 as 3 causes me many problems with software I have. I can remove the protection, do what I need, then enable it for now.

    I would like to see WG 4 and my Audigy 2 EAX, along with installers that create temp files that do work like yahoo and Zone Alarm. *puppy*

    Spot wormlike activity such as high volumes of e-mail or repetitive e-mail content. While the new feature won't stop infections per se, it may slow the spread of mass-mailing worms like the recent Blaster and Sobig.F worms
