    "Seems To Be Incompatible With Comodo Firewall"

    January 31, 2013   |   By tonester59

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.8.1 beta

    Pros

    Great idea - browser app to block 0-Day attacks where they occur. Installs easily and requires minimal disc space while running silently in the background.

    Cons

    After I installed ExploitShield, none of my browsers would open. When I turned it off, they opened fine. ( It may be notable that my Comodo Firewall produced no alerts at all during installation, which is unusual when installing new software.) I uninstalled it, and checked the ES website and checked for known issues - sure enough, one of their beta-testers had found it to be incompatible with Comodo, producing the results I described. Just to be sure, I installed it again with the same results.

    Summary

    I have to say that I'm really 'bummed, as I really wanted to try this out. When they get the bugs out, it will make for an outstanding security app to protect against very real threats. But since I'm not ready to change firewalls, I'll have to wait until this issue is addressed. Until then, I wish the developers all the best, as I feel that this is an important security issue that not all browsers and a/v programs can protect against.

    "Great product."

    December 11, 2012   |   By TheAl12345

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    This product has lived up to its name. It blocks known and unknown exploits. It is a simple set and forget product.

    Cons

    Currently, it has a few false positives and a crash happening in Firefox browsers.

    Summary

    Remember, this product is still in early beta stage. I have used this product since it first came out and haven't disliked it yet.

    "Sitting doing nothing - that's a good thing"

    October 12, 2012   |   By JEfromCanada

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    It's very unobtrusive. It just sits there, until something happens.

    Cons

    Not a con actually... but it would be useful if this app had a "self-test" capability that showed the user how it would react to an attempted exploit.

    Summary

    When I installed this app, it minimized itself to a "Z" on my status bar, where it has sat ever since. Double-clicking the icon shows me that no intrusions have taken place. It's quiet, has no "configuration" requirements, and hopefully is doing its job. Until an exploit tries to attack my machine, there's not much else I can say about this app.

    "Seems to be doing the job as advertised."

    October 11, 2012   |   By deluca69

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    Have not been using long enough to be truly critical of the app. Satisfied so far.

    Cons

    The one bug I have found is when clicking a link , especially in my email, it will open Internet Explorer but will only have a blank page. Must right click and tell it to open link in browser, orr double click the link which sometimes still does not work.

    Summary

    Satisfied so far, but need more experience with the app.

    "Early days but no worries yet."

    October 11, 2012   |   By 50Sparks

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    I am getting less interruption in my browswer activity, so that's good.

    Cons

    I don't like that it completely shuts down my computer at midnight as start up is now slower than usual. Maybe I just need to adjust my settings...

    Summary

    Having this program makes me feel more secure, but frankly as I get no alerts about it's activity, I let it run and just forget it.

    "So far, So good!"

    October 05, 2012   |   By atunis58041

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    Very simple to install, just install it & forget it! Difficult to judge how well it works, but will give it a 5-star now.

    Cons

    None as of yet, but has only been installed for a few weeks, if that.

    Summary

    One more way to protect your computer. Easy install & light on resources.It's effectiveness will be determined after some time has past and users report their experience. So, no problems.

    "Simple, Efficient, a"

    October 04, 2012   |   By Ludichris1

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    Runs in background as a tray icon. It helps to block a lot of possible malware in a variety of applications too. I've always wondered if my virus-protection program was enough but this seems to finish the deal. It's easy to open and easy to manage everything in it.
    It protects all the Browser stuff like Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer (great for those who haven't updated IE yet..), Opera, Java, and any components featured in the browser like when one opens a PDF, views a Flash, etc..

    Note: Applications with a 'lock' on them are shielded. Since this is the browser edition, the other software, such as Adobe Reader and Microsoft Office are not because they have an opened lock on them (General tab says only 6 applications are shielded, and there are 6 applications with a lock symbol).

    Shielded applications include: Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Opera, Java, and WebBrowser Components (PDF, FLASH, JAVA ...).

    Cons

    None of this writing.

    "Neat, simple application."

    October 03, 2012   |   By tom4hawk

    Version: ExploitShield Browser Edition 0.7 beta

    Pros

    Installs and runs just fine. Right click on the tray icon to open up a simple window that shows what is being protected and how many attempted intrusions have been stopped.
    I haven't come under attack, so I cannot review the program's efficacy, but it runs stably in the background using minimal resources- 0% CPU and 10.5MB of RAM.

    Cons

    None to speak of.
