I also wanted to post a link to this video showing how AppGuard stops Critroni virus even in Medium Protection Level. The engineer that made the video wanted to show how AppGuard would stop it even if the malware was digitally signed so he took some liberties to simulate this (since the virus sample he had was not digitally signed). He wanted to show how AppGuard would succeed where a white listing product might fail. So to be clear, as Critroni is today, it is not digitally signed and AppGuard would not even allow it to launch from user-space (and neither would most white-listing programs). But he wanted to emphasize the difference between AppGuard and a white-listing product. Anyway to simulate this, he placed Critroni in C:\Temp (a system space folder) and then added the Critroni program to the Guard List with Privacy On. This simulates what would happen if Critroni was digitally signed and was launched from user-space because AppGuard would allow it to launch, but would Guard it in Privacy Mode. As you can see AppGuard does not let anything in the Private Folder from being encrypted.

Can Shadow Defender and SandBoxie do the same?
Or is AppGuard the only that can do this at this time?

Thank you for sharing! Appreciate the information!


Kind regards

Does AppGuard have any kind of conflicts with Shadow Defender?
The reason is that, I am thinking about purchase a Lic.,key for AppGuard.

Your thoughts?:confused:

With AppGuard as part of my security setup,how do I make sure that protected
again Citroni (cryptolocker)? Or is this just build in automatic protection from
AppGuard?

Here is my security setup

> Emsisoft Anti-Malware
> AppGuard
> Shadow Defender on Demand
> Gary Utilities 5


I can use Norman Malware Cleaner one week. With herdProtect a couple time a week!

Kind regards,

lockdown mode; nothing can be run without notifying you.

Last Question: In the lockdown congif you have for NVT can you run it alongside with WD?
Just keep in mind that NVT ERP at max settings does not always work right in a standard user account.
You can do either ERP at max settings, in an admin account, or ERP at default settings, in standard user account.
