"HIPS and FW plus Process Explorer"

October 20, 2011  |  By flemur13013

 |  Version: Malware Defender 2.7

Pros

Interesting, apparently very complete information: kernel, network, autostart list/editor, registry editor, hooks with search/edit/ and undo and its own Process Explorer. Perfect for nerds. It found refs to .sys files from a keylogger that many other anti-malware pgms missed (the files themselves were gone). All shows clean in scans by others.

Cons

Sometimes hangs (do "help"!)and can't kill it easily: program seems complete but the installer/packaging isn't. Makes a randomly named (can diable this) .sys file that prevents some boot programs from running (e.g. autocheck), along with preventing boot shenanigans - not much of a problem if you know about it! (stop MD from running at boot and delete/rename the file - MD will list it under Kernel").
Although it was written by another company (IIRC), google "is 360.cn evil" !

Summary

The only real downside is the 360.cn connection - maybe.

Installation and uninstallation were NO problem - you shouldn't run more than one program of this type at the same time.
