IMO, Threatfire is easily extinguished by malwares^^

In my past experience, The so called Threatfire detected malwares on my PC yet it said it cant remove them...weird...^^(thats about umm...a year ago, so maybe the latest version is good)

So thats y i found avast! in the 1st place and it totally ripped the malwares apart!^^

(No hard feeling for threatfire users, as i didnt intend to hurt u at all^^)Sorry if i did offend u^^

drhayden1 , this is normal. TF is recognized by the security centre as an AV. There is an option during installation of TF (and subsequently in the program settings) to disable the reporting in the security centre, in order to allay the concerns of folk who (correctly) feel disturbed about the reporting of more than one AV installed
OK Thanks-Reinstalled Threatfire and its not in the Windows Security Center Now ::) ;)
And i thought Threatfire had an Anti-virus so called scan included-all i see is it asks you to install their Free version of their program ::) ???
click on saywhat.jpg and open to view ::) ;D

Detection in Security Center is optional (can be controled from within ThreatFire).

There is still o final 64bit version but they are working on it. Or you can use the beta version. Just contact AChen on PCTools forums for access to ebta section.

ThreatFire is not HIPS.
Sorry, than. Lack of knowledge. Can you tell us a little more (in few words)?

I don't have clue where you got "tons of questions". Because i certanly didn't get any. Maybe one or two tops. Thats far from "many".
Well, if you got no questions at all (as you can set into ThreatFire settings) maybe it's just taking decisions by your own. Not that bad, just you won't see what it is happening.

As i said, it's not a HIPS system but a behavior blocker. You can make it work like HIPS by ramping up the settings to Max but with default, it's behavior blocker. And as such it only warns on malicious actions. With version 4.5, they've also included online lookup for black/whitelist for even better protection and less false positives.
Been using and testing this program since the Cyberhawk days and it's really powerful, especially for a free program.

I don't see the need to burden my system with Threatfire, even if it's lite on resources.

Avast!, WinPatrol & OA keep me safe doing and going anywhere online that I want to go. :)

OA would be overkill over ZA Free except it's lighter than ZA Free. ;)

The big thing is being careful of what you download, Threatfire wont protect from being stupid or ignorant. ::)

ThreatFire shows in Security Center only if you enable it to do so in its settings.

As you'll see from the screen shot, that's not the case in Windows 7.  :)
