Does anyone use Anti-Executable on your home PC.

What do you think about this PC Protection?

I'm just looking at it. I don't think I need it.

Protect your computers today against the unknown threats of tomorrow.

Anti-Executable is a revolutionary method to address blended threats. Unlike existing solutions, Anti-Executable utilizes a unique whitelist technology to provide proactive protection against spyware, keyloggers, trojans, viruses, or any other malware.

Powerful and secure, Anti-Executable is an economical software solution that prevents unauthorized executables from launching no matter if they are downloaded or introduced via removable media or the network.

On install, Anti-Executable performs a deep scan of the computer and authorizes everything on it. From that point on, any other executable is deemed unauthorized and will not run or install.

Compatible with Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP
Based on a unique whitelist concept - no definition files to update
Detects more than 80 different executable file types
Operates in any user mode, including Administrator
Silent install for rapid network deployment
Guaranteed compatibility with all applications
Compatible with Deep Freeze
Compatible with major third-party antivirus applications
Password protected and completely secure
Instantly enable or disable Anti-Executable on the fly
View log of all unauthorized installation attempts
Expanded Protection Options
Restrict the copying of any executable files to the desktop or any other area
Restrict the deletion or re-naming of any executable files
Restrict the launching of executables from all or part of your network
Flexibility Options
Designate specific applications, such as antivirus programs to be Trusted and exempt from protection
Exempt local folders or network paths
Two different security levels to suit various needs
Custom Violation Message
A default message is displayed when a user attempts to perform an action that is not authorized by Anti-Executable. This message can be completely customized to your specifications.





Thanks

Sounds like overkill and unnecessary for a home user.

If it protects against spyware, keyloggers, trojans, viruses, or any other malware.

Why is it overkill?

After reading the user manual and reviews it looks like this could be a must have for PC security.



I not sure if I will try it.

I got an e-mail back from Faronics today

You can download Anti-Executable online for $29.95


Faronics recommends that you
download the Full 60 day evaluation version
before you buy.

You can evaluate first and...see for yourself why Anti-Executable stops unwanted programs cold!

You can do all that for free and Without it.

You need:

1. Updated AntiVirus Program
2. All Windows Security Updates Installed, especially SP2
3. SpywareBlaster
4. Remove MSJVM

You will not have any problems again unless you manually install something.
