Script blocker
« on: June 24, 2004, 01:09:35 AM »
Ok, I did a search for this using "script blocker" "Which script blocker" "What script blocker" etc. Didn't find what I was looking for. My question is this. For people who are running the free home edition of Avast, what are you using for a script blocker? If I missed an already existing thread on this...please link me to it!

Thanks!

Thanks for the link! Does the fact that script Sentry is two years old mean it is out-dated at all?

 I have had no problems out of Script Sentry. Jason updates it whenever a New Microsoft OS comes out. i.e. version 2.8.x will come out when Longhorn is released

Script defender. This is another one. But it was last updated on December 22, 2001 (so Script sentry is more up-to-date)

Ok, thanks for the info.  I read a little bit about script defender the other day. They said that although it hasn't been updated in awhile, it is better than script sentry because you can add your own scripts for it to protect against. Have you tried script defender?

yes I have, however, it has some sort of conflict with F-Secure AV. So I had to use Script Sentry. The choice is yours of course. But Script sentry is really effective. I have found no bugs or flaws. And It works Great with XP

Let me ask you this. Shouldn't a script blocker be updated much like an AV? I mean I would think new scripts would emerge just like new virus.

Yes you WOULD think. But these are the two well known ones. And as you can see Script sentry is updated only with the new OS now that Jason has included all the features.

By the way Script sectry has a Forum. I will give you the link if you want

Very good indeed! Give Script Sentry a try, If you dont like it then you can always uninstall it right?  ;)
