Bad link: The windows sysinternals link takes you to a random page in a sysinternals forum, not a download site.

Thanks! Removed.

I have noticed that PCtools has retired Pctools Firewall Plus and also threatfire now, It must be due to being owned by symantec. I'm using MSE as its simple and effective and I don't and haven't ever had any issues with it so no need to switch. My question is now that threatfire isn't available I was wondering what I could add or run along side MSE to replace Threatfire. I'm thinking about Immunet but I'm not sure if I do should I leave the ClamAV off and use it or should I use all engines provided by Immunet and adjust the exclusion list so they play nice. If there is something else that might run well with MSE I'm just interested in hearing a recommendation.

Crystal Security is not malware.
All this in Virus Total (4) are false positive.

Thanks. That seems to be the case . But unfortunately I cannot edit the list (and who knows when the problem is corrected).

Any experience anyone?

by Anupam on 4. October 2012 - 9:55  (100243)

Don't think we should be considering this before the final release, because according to its page, it will go commercial once its out of beta.

by vodomar on 4. October 2012 - 11:56  (100245)

software has a good rating here,2817,2410274,00.asp

if it becomes trialware, we always have a symbol $ :D

by Anupam on 4. October 2012 - 12:09  (100247)

Many commercial software have a good rating. Ours being a freeware site, I think we should avoid such software. Anyways, it's a Best FREE Security List :D

by vodomar on 4. October 2012 - 13:14  (100254)

of course, but this software is more like an exception
"...Other users may want to hold off until the final release of this unusual approach to exploit protection." (,2817,2410274,00.asp)
This list should be open to innovation, even when it is paid :) (e.g. s.10.3 and 10.4)

by Anupam on 4. October 2012 - 13:22  (100257)

Many such software can be made an exception. I think it would be better to ask in the Team Forum about its inclusion here.

Many times we have avoided such software, because they were free in beta, but turned commercial when their final version was released.

by vodomar on 4. October 2012 - 13:42  (100259)

Ako should decide about s.9,9.I think that this is a new kind of security software and currently there is no free alternative :)

by Anupam on 4. October 2012 - 14:06  (100262)

OK :). Let's see what MC has to say on this :).

by MidnightCowboy on 4. October 2012 - 14:55  (100269)

IMO discuss on an individual basis in the team forum. :)
