Hi Victek,

unfortunatelly 64-bit is not supported so far.
More explanations you will find in this thread at wilders:

Wilders Security Forums - View Single Post - 64-bit systems and anti-malware software
Wilders Security Forums - View Single Post - 64-bit systems and anti-malware software
and others
The 2nd post says that "once 64bit becomes the industry standard, they will sue MS. "
why?
Because MS introduced many limitations with 64-bit versions - these limitation don't allow to offer "full" protection of security softwares:

I would say no because I just tried to load it and I get a Driver not Loaded error message and nothing else. It is in the tray, but not on. No way to fix it or any description at all. Uninstalled...

I watched that video as well, sure hope that the pop ups are not as ugly as in that video. I mean really, a form with a huge text box on it for the pop up prompt for the user? Ugh.

Dang. I was hoping it would work on 64 bit. Watching Matt's (mrizos) videos on YouTube, DefenseWall & GesWall look like they will make traditional antivirus programs obsolete. The next release of GesWall is suppose to support 64 bit.

nor Defencewall nor GesWall or any othere similar programms support x64
Avast Internet Security Beta support 64-bit for their sandbox feature. First one of it's kind apparently.
I think it is the same sandbox as in KIS, so I think it's limited

Well, maybe, but I'm still not a fan of these "sandbox" type products. I find them a pain to use. I tried the Avast IS Beta with the sandbox built in and trying to download a file was a pain. I suppose there is some more configuration and settings that need to be set, but for the average or novice user, these types of products are not easy to use IMO.

Watch this review of GesWall and you might change your mind. You can download files as normal. To run them un-sandboxed, you just right click on the saved file and select 'Label as Trusted', otherwise they run sandboxed ....it's near the end of the video (at 22:30).

Fair enough. When I get a chance, I will watch it. Just heading out to do some Christmas shopping soon...

You know though, I like the battle between anti virus software and viruses/malware currently. I don't know, I guess I have nothing better to do and love testing the products and seeing if they can kill said viruses/malware.

Yeah, I've read the discussions about patchguard, etc. I'm hoping ways to support x64 will be found eventually though. Many systems are coming with x64 pre-installed so the user base is growing.
