Windows 7: What's the Best Anti-Malware?

10 Aug 2011   #101

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
 
 

Can Safe Run in KIS 12 be set up to run a browser in effectively? I tried using the Comodo Sandbox to run my browser in, but it would not allow any user defined changes during a session such as the updating of adblock filters.

Ok Max

Max I don't know but will find out as I only use it for my financial and confidential stuff that I can configure to happen automatically.

Now I found this video and it looks like what you are after. I haven't tried it yet myself but am going to I am also going to check with the K - Lab forum that I go on to make sure - that might take a little while but I will get back to you.

In any case the on line banking is brilliant and I wouldn't use anything else.

see what you think as I also reckon the 12 is a vast improvement on the 11 version - and lighter on resources and disk space.

This might be it

Max I think I've found the answer myself for you - from the video you saw how the Safe Run was set up - now set a desktop short cut - it will open your browser in Safe Run mode and any subsequent tabs. If you want to just run your browser with out Safe Run just use your normal taskbar quick launch. Well that's what is happening at my end.

Here are the browser opened with the taskbar launch and the one with the green edge the desktop icon. The subsequent tabs are also green edged in the Safe Run mode.

Max Here is a better pic of the non safe run mode.

I watched the Safe Run in KIS 12 video and it sounds quite similar to Sandboxie including the outlined safe pages which is optional in Sandboxie with several different added features such as an Antivirus which aren't needed in the virtualization of Sandboxie which Tzuk developed in 2004 and has been perfecting ever since.

I prefer running software that is a developer's life work and each and every time I have had a problem with Sandboxie over the last 2 1/2 years Tzuk personally found a solution for me.

KIS 12 looks like quite capable software, but unfortunately I would not be able to run my Opera browser which employs its own powerful website digital certificate verification under it.

No probs

Yes Max the KIS does have a few limitations and I must admit I only use the safe run for my financial and confidential stuff. Although now I know the Safe Run "trick" I am going to run any apps I'm not sure of in it.

But as a suite I still swear by it as past experiences with Norton, CA, Trend and McAfee have been come pretty negative.

The only one that I did like before was AVG and at the moment am trying the free Avira on the XP tester and it seem s quite competent.

Oh and I run Sandboxie on it too - I even went to the trouble of getting the paid for disk. I agree with you that it is a fabulous little tool but as I don't venture outside of IE on my main machines thats the only time I use it.

Hey but this has been a very pleasant exchange of ideas don't you think - as I said somewhere else there will never be a general consensus on what is the best protection, one only has to look at the different testing agencies and mags to see that.

In a way thats a good thing as it promotes a deeper understanding of what we are doing and lateral thinking, and that is what is so good about this forum. I personally have never yet had any derogatory or derisory remarks made re my input as I have on a couple of other forums that I go on, from highly savvy people / techs who are not shall we say very tolerant as they are in here. I don't mind admitting to being just a beginner and am not that savvy, and try to keep an open mind on everyone's thoughts and references.

Sorry mods

Have been trialling

Well I heard so much about this Comodo suite I thought I'd give it a try and well I ma impressed -if I wasn't so sold on Kaspersky this is the one I would have - even the free version is something else.

What I do like about it is the way it always advises one of the safety of whatever you open or are downloading. Anyway it knocks spots off some of the rubbish ones I've had in the past.

Kaspersky and Avira are both great products, I used Kaspersky for the past few years but started using Avira as it seems more peaceful, cant really make my mind up!

ICit2lol- Be sure to check out the Virtual Kiosk in Comodo v6 which features full virtualization for all software running in it.

Ok Max will do and I am about to try out the beta Kaspersky 2013 when I get a chance as it looks at first glance to have a better GUI.
