BUT I also have ClamWinAV (freestanding program I forgot to disable on start so they appear to work together ok..huh) I really don’t know which did what… . But the message said the fake keylogger program I tried to execute had to be shutdown for generating errors ( Windows popup 0x000 (etc) 0 instead of the prompt screen I was told I’d get IF my AV WAS blocking keyloggers.

Not a techie here, so I think my response was basically “‘good deal’.. something stopped it.”

The interface is a little confusing for sure. I selected some reasonably logical choices like lock registry, deny anonymous logon (already set in IE security anyway) and so forth. I think I did a restart then. But what it’s doing or not doing? I haven’t a clue. ClamWin has proven pretty reliable at finding Trojans at least (“fakeAV Trojan”. and a “restore” Trojan and then the original virus that I had suspected was in my laptop for a while that was doing all the dirt~~I kept finding porn sites being considered “trusted sites” and Advanced System Care kept finding them and removing them.). IE listed them as “trusted” it said, but I use FFx so that was weird.

I don’t really know if I’m “protected” or not, but what the hey, I’m online and able to use my computer, the CPUs don’t indicate something else is afoot other than what I’m doing, and it makes me “feel” like everything is all right!
By contrast, Comodo, ZoneAlarm, Agnitum, all kept asking me questions I didn’t know how to answer half the time…lol. When they ask for permission to run, there needs to be better explanation of exactly WHAT is trying to run and to DO what. If like so many people online you KNOW what it means when this program is trying to interface with THAT program, then well and good 🙂 But I’m not that well informed, and I suspect I’m not alone out here ;>
PCTools, well, that little bugger crapped out on me, presumably after these viruses got through Avira and AVG and I shifted arounf to other security, trying PCTools since it was well rated. But after a while, it would just shutdown quietly until I noticed it wasn’t running or lock up on me. SO it must be crackable.

Oh by the way, right before EAV I tried out FortKnox Firewall w/Spy Emergency and it seemed to work quite well, tho’ I rarely have seen it reviewed really positively. When the time came to buy, tho, it really DID seem to shut down. Although lesser known than the big name AV/firewall combos, FortKnox seemed pretty awesome to me and better than AVG or Avira (them–I tried both, separately, of course) and that seemed to be when the viruses slipped thru.

WHen I decided I needed a change,I remembered ClamWin, and that finally dug out the viruses, and subesquent scans showed they didn’t get back thru FtKnox FW.
But when FortKnox puts the squeeze on, they do it by disabling the protection pretty completely, as the GUI tells you as you try to enable different options.
It also doesn’t have a countdown…but I think I may buy it, based on my recent experience.
PCTools I tried back when, was ultimately a headache to me. Worked fine for a while, then got shaky, started showing up 2 or 3 times simultaneously on Task Mgr, then quietly started folding repeatedly. Guess it was hacked too.

I think there’s a neighborhood kid hacking me. And he’s plenty savvy, I know. Guess he doesn’t want Mom finding porn on his computer…lol.
I just felt like telling about my personal exp. as a non-techie struggling to find out what really works (or seems to).

BTW, for those who asked – To uninstall unwanted, hard to uninstall programs …including rogueware programs… use Revo Uninstaller. Get Revo for free here:

http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Be sure to check out CCleaner here:

http://www.ccleaner.com/

Between those two programs you’ll be able to clean your computer of unwanted leftovers of all the programs you’ve already uninstalled and make it easier to keep your computer clean of any “orphaned files” from any future uninstall procedures you may do.

I was curious/tempted, did a google, and found your article. It confirmed what I suspected–if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And to think I found the file on downloads.zdnet.com “free registration is required.”

The truth is that one really needs a security suite to really get adequate protection.

Why would someone publish such a poor program where there does not seem to be any monetary benefit?
