    "This IS the best I have found to deal with my hacker!"

    April 16, 2010  |   By bfann2


    I had a cracker-----he ran thru Avast, Avira, PC-Cill, McA,AVG,NORT, etc. like butter, would change SYS p/w, Admin P/w, building (invisible 2 me) subsystem & use my sys as server. I restored/recovered, useless.
    Kingsoft stopped him cold, it appears.


    Hard to think of a THING. It was easy interface, LOTS of useful tools, very light footprint (scan barely dints downloads).
    OH yeah, it was too hard to FIND OUT about this product OR to find it on CNET's search sucks <sorry guys>


    I'm NOT a geek, was forced to learn stuff to combat a PERSISTENT cracker. In addition to trying ALL (and I do mean ALL..I"M stubborn when I get pissed off) the other security software, (free and not) that folded on me, I even used Belarc Advisor, arduously adjusted security settings to lock him out-nothing worked. He slipped thru like butter. BUT KINGSOFT knows something he doesn't. And the feature of analyzing and updating VULNERABILITIES is fast and sure.
    (The cracker's rigging prevented a lot of MS security updates from installing. I think he CRACKED THE wualt.EXE function and might have even USED it to do "automatic security downloads" icon to infiltrate...I would see 3 and 4 icons at a time in the taskbar and the updates would disappear, be uninstalled mysteriously)
    The "Fix Vulnerabilities" tool is even faster than updating via Microsoft website.
    Kingsoft detected a hidden autorun.inf right off the bat-- I guess that was his builtin restore of any changes I made--and deleted it.
    (My Event viewer reflected restores I didn't do, deleted files abruptly reappeared).
    I am SO impressed! I just hope the hacker/cracker can't crack this one !
    :::hands folded in prayer::::
    YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU TRIED THIS if you have had similar problems or just want to feel safer. I thought about it a while and realized it makes sense that, because so many people use the free software security programs, those programs would be prime targets for de-construction so crackers could get bypass them.
    oh yeah,
    Clamwin (a standalone AV which was pretty good at finding 'ordinary viruses") assessed a (evidently) false-positive when I scanned the Kingsoft downloader & setup file , reporting a "Boot.TPV.1" virus in the setup. I couldn't find any info on this virus online, so I was so desperate that after Googling the reliability of KINGSOFT and finding no negatives, I decided to install it anyway.
    I'm SOO glad I did. I am in awe.
    :::hands folded in prayer and supplication:::
    Here's hoping he can't crack this one...because he trashed two other computers of mine, which are lovely paperweights...
    DO yourself a favor. Download it NOW.
