This Antivirus is the Number-One contender on the block 5 years 9 months ago George.J The comment being made by the moderator references to pre-dated articles so it's not something that's recent. Back in China, there is a cut throat competition among the various AV vendors and technological companies. They have been known to run smear campaigns with sometimes false info against each other. If you simply take a look at every country's Antivirus market, there is indeed tough competition, but that doesn't mean that every company suddenly started offering other software's free of cost. Most top AV products has a paid version, but not Qihoo (and Baidu). Qihoo always believed that their antivirus software should be free for the users. They are just attacking them because they are jealous of their successful business model where nobody thought it would be possible. Now Qihoo is also expanding globally and they hate it that's why. Time and again representatives at Qihoo has clarified these reports such as these: http://corp.360.cn/news/eng/qihoo360article_c2.html view

I tried to download 360 Total Security, but my firewall, Comodo, blocked it as unsafe. This rarely happens, and when it does, I am blocked from visiting. Why in the world would my firewall declare the contents of 360safe.com to be "Prohibited Content?"

lebulldog,
Where did you get the info from that Win 7's Microsoft Security Essentials or Win 8's Windows Defender are "going away"?
That is utter rubbish and you should check the source and be very critical with everything that this source says.
I have Windows 10 Tech Preview on a spare system and all I can say is:
If Windows 10 delivers what the preview promises then

Windows 10 is Windows 8 done right.

And Windows Defender runs just fine in Windows 10.

You make some good points but your reasoning, while perfectly sound, cannot be applied to most people.
Sadly we are now living in a world of kamikaze Facebookers where common sense seems to be, at best, in short supply. It think it's a bit unrealistic to expect the majority of computer users to have the same level of experience, knowledge and as you say, common sense as a veteran user such as yourself....or myself.
Generally speaking, most people who get their machines infected deserve it because they can't be bothered to spend a couple of hours gaining some knowledge. They are too busy re-tweeting vacuous garbage or validating their own existence through the medium of posting found content on some NSA/GCHQ proxy surveillance site like Facebook. You don't seriously expect these people to have a common sense approach to using the web? Really?:D

We have known this for a very long time. The testing labs mostly incorporates detection via signature definitions evaluation which is not exactly how real world protection is really like. Every antivirus includes additional engines and features to protect you real-time when these are in-fact not been considered by the lab agencies. They don't evaluate the protection, once malware gets into the system and is active. It doesn't consider the sandboxing/virtualization technologies of antivirus. Avast doesn't score high on these tests, but they don't consider the multiple shields that comes active or when Avast is used in hardened mode, protecting you from various kinds of malware that traditional signature definitions cannot. The same goes for Qihoo or any other antivirus software. 

While these comparitive reports can be used for evaluation, it's not the be all & end all of the strength of any antivirus. Infact this where user-created videos scores highly when they test each component of the antivirus, rather than a sum-total of protection in one single listing that the testing labs provide, which is not not even transparent to the user, because it doesn't explicitly show, what samples have been used, the methodologies considered, and also the "actual testing video", when all that the user reads is simply the final report which may or may not be modified after evaluation.

This Brilliant File Security Product Is Now Free 3 years 8 months ago toktok

I have problems with connecting. In the place of localhost I put my IP address (as indicated in the help) and a newly invented password (I am not aware that my connection has a password - it's a broadband connection, not wifi. I have also tried without password - but it gives an error message anyway. By the way, why is it necessary to connect if the program only monitors files on the computer?
Any help will be appreciated.

This Brilliant File Security Product Is Now Free 3 years 8 months ago Remah

This is nothing to do with your broadband or even your network connection.

If you are monitoring your current computer then you should be using localhost (which is the equivalent of 127.0.0.1).

You only need to enter another computer's IP address if you want to monitor that computer from the computer you are using. As the online manual says:

If you installed the service on another computer, enter its IP address or name to access it.

You only need to have a password on the other computer you are monitoring if you want to ensure that the information is not available to any other user on your network.

 

P.S. Thanks Rob & Panzer. This is a useful tool.

Thanks, Remah. It worked - entering 127..0.0.1 as 'localhost', without password.
The program opens. Now I have another problem - I don't see any way to restart the program (after having closed it). In the Start search box there is no link to File Access Monitor, and no icon on the desktop, etc.
I can restart the program by running the setup file again but that doesn't seem like the right way.
Thanks for any help.

It appears on your start menu as "Management Console" under the "SoftPerfect File Access Monitor" folder.

On my system File Access Monitor has two components. The connection is between the front-end GUI and the back-end collector:

  • SoftPerfect File Access Monitor Core (32-bit) is a background process to collect the data.
  • SoftPerfect File Access Monitor GUI (64-bit) is an application to present the data.

They appeared as separate components in the install program and were both checked for installation. It is possible to install them separately on different comptuers. You could install the Core module (without the GUI) on a server and then install the GUI application (without Core) on your desktop computer you are using to monitor the server.

By the way, I just noticed that this software is no longer being developed which is a large negative in my opinion. The download page says:

File Access Monitor is now a legacy product: it is no longer developed or updated, but you can download and use the last available version. No support is provided for retired products.

This is very handy although you can't go past Perfect Effects by On1 Software. If you are working with a lot of images I would expect that your more than an just an amateur and your post processing workflow will consist of several processes to finalize your images for print or publishing.

With On1 you can perform a plethora of tasks including batch processing. The software is a perfect companion/plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom as well.

You would be doing yourself a favor checking out this awesome software and the previous versions are usually free which is currently "Perfect Effects 9 Free".

Perfect Effects is available at www.on1.com

I do have several apps which will block things I don't want intruding on my computer and this sounds like something else that would be very worthwhile. However, my expertise is not as great as I wish it were. Can you just download and Install Trace and let it do its thing? We all need as much protection as we can get because our privacy is being stolen from us by all kinds of unlawful means and I definitely think I need this application.

Thanks, appreciated. Didn't try the Premium$ part though would be nice to add in development. Maybe next time.
Fast install from store. Right away results shown. It also has some anti-bitcoin ability. Been running 2 sep apps that
do that and surprised me with what they do report blocking. No major sites I believe since those rarely if ever triggered
but less used or known ones do pop up now & then. This extra layer should help. Even on a slow cable w/ Win x64 Pro
and high end PC there's no noticeable draw down on webbing & I have a lot of open web connected apps too. Test more.

Question: here are the security / privacy add-ons currently being used on Firefox (ESR 52.8):

— NoScript

— uBlock Origin

— HTTPS Everywhere

— Privacy Badger

— Better Privacy

— Hoxx VPN Proxy

Which, if any, of the above might Trace supersede (and / or would work well in conjunction with)?

I heard back from the developer, if this doesn't answer all the questions let me know - they are very open to answering anything else. And of course you can contact them as well. Here's their response:
 

"Firstly, I personally use HTTPS Everywhere, find it very useful and necessary; Trace works well with it and although the two may conflict in some rare instances, it's never caused any problems whilst browsing the web for me.
 
 
As for the rest:
 - NoScript should also work fine with Trace although I haven't tested it, the main difference with NoScript and Trace is that NoScript can stop all JS running on a page whereas Trace aims to disable certain functions that can be used for tracking.
 - Privacy badger and Trace are very similar, personally I'd use Trace, but I suppose I am a bit biased.
 - Regarding better privacy, I know nothing about it due to the fact it was removed by its author.
 - Any VPN should work fine with Trace as the two will never interfere.
 
Concerning uBlock, you *can* use Trace and uBlock together, however if you do decide to do that, you should disable the WebRequest Controller in Trace so that they don't interfere. That would mean that uBlock handles all the domain blocking whilst Trace handles other things such as defending against Canvas & Audio Fingerprinting, Google tracking headers etc."

Hi,
I installed this on Firefox and it doesn't seem to cause any problems. The question I have is related to when I first start my browser a Browser Console appears. Is this normal? Most of the time this Browser Console is blank, but a few times there have been informational comments made and displayed in this console.

I've tried going to the creator's web page for more informational ... basically looking for a user guides to learn more about this extension, but never did get connected. On the surface it looks pretty good, but I'm not familiar with all the things it is purportedly doing.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks rhlannon for your response. I'm 'learning' more about this add-on, but won't claim I understand it all. LOL It's pretty nifty from what I'm experiencing and I carefully always check the Browser Console, Today's comment in the Browser Console reads as follows: The resource at “https://bcp.crwdcntrl.net/5/c=5117/b=49273876” was blocked because tracking protection is enabled.[Learn More]. I haven't been on the internet much today, but as i surf I'm sure more such comments will be added to the Browser Console.

I did check all the items you suggested and am getting more than a warm fuzzy, this add-on is good. I've got to experiment more with enabling/disabling different functions to see if I blow up my set-up. LOL Thanks again, young man ( I think I can write that as I'm 78 and still 'playing' with computers.

Can this be run in parallel with Windows Explorer, or do you have to disable / delete WE to use it?

It doesn't interfere with Windows Explorer, I run them side by side simultaneously with no problems. It doesn't set itself as the default file manager or make any other changes in system settings that I'm aware of.

It's one of the first utilities I put on every new computer. Very much like the old Norton Commander from the DOS days.

My PCs are old.
I have XP in one, and W10 in the other
When using W10, they had to remove all weapons from my house in case I killed myself (way too much crap running in the background)
Thus I use XP 98% of the time.
If there are others using XP, I have good news and bad news -
- Good, The latest version 3 will install into XP\
- Bad, it says it is in evaluation mode for next month.
I will write to their support, to see if they will give us a key

Thanks, Rhiannon!

I've been looking for a free dual pane browser that is similar to xplorer2 ($$) which I've used in the past, and Altap Salamander seems to fit the bill. Great set of features, but I especially like the layout and its extensive set of configuration options.

Just tried it. Cannot believe it was a paid commercial software before. It comes not even close to FreeCommander XE. No multi tab support, no bookmarks.

And that's the beauty of software, paid or free. Not everyone works the same way or wants the same things in a program.
When you find one that works for you, it's a good fit. I'm glad you like FreeCommander XE and it has the features you want in a program.

The version previous to this has support for XP, but they dropped it from the current list of what it runs on in this release.
Thanks for the info, it's very helpful. I hope they respond to you and do something about the evaluation issue.

You're welcome. :) I like the features and the layout too. It has more options than I would normally use and the available configurations are extensive.

No tab support, no bookmarks. Subpar to FreeCommander XE, let alone Directory Opus.

Haven’t had a chance to use this File manager

The most important feature of file management is a search function

Windows OS after Windows XP have had an inferior file search function, with no explanation or apology. As a result, searching for a particular file in a large folder is clunky and inefficient

Really I will only consider a new file manager if it has a good file search feature

The find files (search) with the bonus compare feature work for me.

A couple of questions IIM, does this have a ribbon/pictures or good old text?
Not to go off topic, in reference to the man with too many things running in the background on W10, how many do you guys show in Windows Task Manager?

thanks,
michael_clyde

I just noticed due to severe nearsightedness the picture of the File Manager.

I was a big fan of Altap Salamander. But for the last years, it doesn't seem to browse Windows network shares anymore. It just simply doesn't work. So it's of very little use to me now.
