  1. I made an inquiry on another forum about this, and the answer made a lot of sense. 1. Good analogy. Measure temperature with 3 different thermometers and you will likely get 3 different measurements. Problem is accuracy of calibration, plus precision of the measuring instrument. 2. Timing in measurement of the various software. 3. If the software that is measuring is running at the same time, they might be interfering with each other and affecting the measurement results. Bottom line, as concluded, it's not a worry. Pete
  2. You are right there isn't much point in arguing. Catprincess was relating the explanation we were given, and telling her it's a blatant lie is just plain rude. Secondly, you certainly are free to find other software if you wish, but that isn't a discussion appropriate for a support forum. There are other forums you can visit to make that inquiry. Pete
  3. Hi Tim Couple of things on this. 1. Although OA and EAM are now published by the same company, it didn't start that way, and the development teams working on each product are essentially the same as when the products were started. 2. I've got three different pieces of software, that measure download speed and total kb download, and there is no agreement among them. Why? I don't have a clue, and frankly since I've never seen a problem, I don't consider it a biggie worth my time to try and figure it out. 3. Is one of the two programs misreporting.. I don't know. Is it a problem? Well have you seen an issue that makes you think it a problem, another words if you hadn't seen the numbers would you even know. 4. My personal feeling is that it not only isn't a serious problem, but not a problem worth worrying about. 5 Hopefully someone can give you a specific answer. I know I can't Pete
  4. I am sorry guy's but I don't buy this. A subject like that to draw attention isn't about caring about the program, it's about getting attention and I feel it's the wrong way. Why. Consider someone who isn't familiar with Online Armor and just purchased it. Then they come to the forum and see this subject, and it really scares them. They didn't realize it wasn't a serious threat, but just a user trying to draw attention to his problem. This isn't caring about Online Armor. If you don't feel a situation is getting proper attention, and yes that can happen, then either post in the private forums if you have access or PM Fabian. But posting a subject implying something that isn't true just doesn't strike me as the way to go. Pete
  5. Didn't see anything that changed my mind. I don't need a keylogger at that price, or at all actually, and frankly from what I saw I sure wouldn't recommend anyone consider it a replacement for Online Armor. Pete
  6. Hi Guys First, thanks Blues, glad I could help. As I am sure Alex_S could attest, I've complained about certain issues myself, but overall the latest versions have been looking good. To be honest, I've disabled keylogger protection, as it is inherently annoying as it monitors behavior, and thus false positives. I have other protection for that. As to SpyShelter, I did look out of curiosity, and when I see phrases like "special algorithms" it makes me laugh. My BS detector goes on full alert. Then I downloaded their antileak test. Another joke. I think I've seen that before. Dumb thing is to get it to run I have to allow it in two programs. Then once it runs it tells me I am not protected. Not for me, thank you. Pete Oh and I do think the thread title was way over the top.
  7. I don't think that matters. Bottom line for a lot of software now is you need SP3. Pete
  8. To add to what Stapp said, posting as you last did, doesn't provide a strong incentive for the volunteers here to help you. It could be your question was misunderstood as the answer lies right in the help file. The bold underline is mine. So the answer to your question, is all the options aren't there. Remember this is set for the average user. So your best bet might be to run the trusted install, and then go back and change the few programs you want to change. Either way you do it you will have to manually configure programs you want to customize. Pete
  9. Hi JJB2011 First you might check out this article. It suggests OA Run safer as an alternative to Drop My Rights. While I can't answer the specific's of your question, I can tell you from testing I did a while back, it will pretty much protect you from most stuff out there, UNLESS, the malware doesn't need admin privilege. In that case non of the type programs will help. Pete
  10. It also has nothing to do with XP, I am running XP Pro SP3 here and RC 5.0 is much smoother than 4.5 was. You really should try it.
  11. CP didn't say they may be considered a keylogger, she said they may be exhibiting keylogger behavior. There is a huge difference.
  12. Thanks Martin. I was just curious, as there is no record of it. Appreciate the info. Pete
  13. Curious as to where you got this version, as the last release is indeed
  14. Hi Tyler Yes, turn on the debug mode, and turn on all the log categories. Note this isn't the firewall logs. Also try and capture, the problem and then turn off the logs. They grow quite large quickly. I believe then they should be sent to [email protected] attention Alex_S. If you are successful, let me know. Good Luck. Pete
  15. Tyler, if you can force it, and capture it on logs that would be great. I've not been able to do this, and candidly, without it the dev's won't do a thing. Pete
  16. Oh yes indeed. It is random, and I've yet to figure out a pattern, which makes it hard to get logs. Dev's can't reproduce it so it is being treated as a unique to me problem, and not being worked on. Pete
  17. I do exactly the same thing. All browsers, Outlook, and Windows Media player all run "Run Safer". Pete
  18. OA will not stealth port 0, never has, but at least in the premium versions, that is easy to fix. Don't know about free.
