Runscanner - Anyone in on this free program?
« on: April 09, 2007, 11:25:12 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

Anyone in on this free program. It is still in beta. Who wants to comment, who used it?

Seems promising... I'm being tempted to install and test...
Did you find any good press of it Polonus?

It's a standalone application... I love this... No install, no uninstall...
I'm testing... There is HOSTS file editor, a process killer and a startup identifier.
In some way it's similar to WinPatrol... Let's see the scanning results.
Low level drivers analysis, services tools, very good...
It's not a toy, definitively. It's for advanced users.

It certainly looks and sounds interesting and at beta 0.9.0.0 not to far from the 1.0 version to probably be stable and as Tech said it is a stand alone application so it shouldn't mess with your system.

However, you could do some damage tweaking things that you don't understand.

I think I will give it a try.
