    Prevx is available ---- FREE!

    Prevx is available ---- FREE!
    Prevx Home is now available as a free download. This follows a long beta period that has shown this to be a very useful tool. If it's anywhere close to their enterprise solutions - it's worth the download. I don't think anyone expected Privx Home to be free after the beta. Any long-term beta users of Prevx here at Wilders? I would like to hear what you think!

    Did you see the phone home feature - that's wierd for a security product. On Wilders some of the guys are running amok. There isn't even a privacy policy on the page - so watch out

    I read good reports from several sources that I trust so I'm giving it a try. Thanks for the tip.

    Been using Prevx for a while with only one glitch.I can't get Word Lab(a word game) to start when Prevx is loaded.Works fine when I disable though.I have updated many times with no problems.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    I have used it a bit but it never did anything - just sat there looking like a jesters hat. Perhaps my other protection was stopping it from getting anything to protect me from. Host based IDS is the way to go though, I'm all for it - a little thingy, you know, in there, watching everything like a hawk. You got to do something with all those extra clock cycles, I haven't been able to out-type my PC since the days of the 386.

    Not sure about it

    I just booted that machine and did a Windows Update on it. I always login as %user% and do 'runas' %admin% -- Windows Update. It didn't warn me about anything despite the obvious changing of lots and lots of system files. My outpost firewall told me plenty about changes to IE - PrevX nada. Prevx cut in when the antivirus started updating itself though and generated 7 events.
    That just can't be right.
