I'll think it.

Hi! I just wanted to inform that I can't download the YASC application called secure-it. I've tried different places, but they all take me to a webpage called XXXXXXX, but the download doesn't start, or is nowhere to be found. I was able to download harden-it by YASC also, but I downloaded it from Major Geeks. Sadly, Secure-it isn't available on Major Geeks. Can you give a link where I can download it? Harden it is only for WinXP and earlier, when I try to install it on Vista, it tells me to download Secure-it, but I haven't been able to. Thanks a lot, and congratulations on a great and useful website!

PC Tools Free Antivirus

It is there (Spyware doctor with antivirus)

by MidnightCowboy on 7. September 2010 - 8:04  (57395)

This is the Google pack restricted/limited (IMO very!) version of Spyware Doctor +AV

as opposed to PC Tools Free AV

Hey Ako, in the section removing stubborn malware can you elaborate a bit more on it. I am mostly wondering about how you run DrWeb Cureit and Emsisoft Emergency on UBCD4Win. Are they already on the UBCD4win or do you have a USB plugged in with these programs on it (would the programs then have to be portable versions?). Also do you run full scans for all the suggested scanners or some quick scans and some full?

Many thanks for the great freeware list!

by ako on 4. September 2010 - 8:20  (57247)

Yes, you should copy them to the hard disk or USB stick. Run always "full scan".

How is this related to security? Is this alternate DNS? Where are the IP addressess for their DNS servers?

by AlanMcAlan on 3. September 2010 - 17:31  (57214)

You can (through quite a painstaking process) register, create a domain, and use their DNS servers with your own custom filters, almost like OpenDNS.

by Adrastos (not verified) on 5. September 2010 - 17:10  (57313)

its not recommended for the faint heart I'd still take openDNS over that...

Hey Ako, this is becoming a monster! Looking great! I am really liking the new area you added about removing stubborn malware.

by ako on 20. August 2010 - 20:36  (56437)

I'd be happy if people will find it useful.
P.S. Thanks for encouragement! :)

You are welcome :)

In the anonymous browsing tools you refer Ultrasurf

In (Practical Internet Privacy) you can read: "Well, you would normally avoid government-funded freebies that log everything. One such service is Ultrasurf – linked to the Falun Gong run GIF Inc, and headed by an NSA scientist to break Chinese censorship."

by ako on 14. August 2010 - 23:23  (56037)

The overall opinion of that page seems OK.
