Yep.

I've tried DriveSentry.

It isn't bad if you don't mind a few popups....but i used it when my computer was riddles with viruses.......and i got like a billion popups...so i got rid of it.

I would rather just scan my computer regularly with products like Spybot SD, wihich is much less annoying.

Hope my opinion helps :thumbsup:

Probably not worth spending any money. PC Mags review said this "Numerous pop-up queries require the user to identify malware. Online advice ineffective. Failed to block some malware, including rootkits and Trojan horses. Self-protection failed in testing."

whoa sounds like that program's a l.o.s.e.r. i totaly agree with oldfart (wish i could say that to my professor and get away with it). i vouch for spybot cuz it just saved my computer along with ad-aware 2007, spywareblaster, NAV, and ATF-Cleaner

Agreed.

I found it to be rather annoying, and the online advice was useless.....not worth paying any money for.

It's better just to have reliable scanners/real time protection that doesn't involve DriveSentry

I think Drivesentry is a HIPS. It cannot be used instead of antivirus software.
And you should note whether it has conflict with your other security software. Sometimes, the conflict is so severe.
