it still works great on all versions of windows. It doesn't require any further development in order to do its job.So is it safe to keep using this software since I have a lifetime license of it. I wanted to change my email-id so I contacted them but no response from one week.
the dev is busy with other things, and may or may not come back to this software. There are lots of people who want to see him come back, but so far, it hasn't happened.Still, so it won't be developed more or any such news. In future would they start developing it again coz many people who have purchased lifetime license would want this software to be developed actively.
best policy with trusted publishers is to keep it short and to the point. It should contain microsoft in its various iterations, and also your drivers, and anything else solid and reliable that you need to update behind the scenes without hitch.
For instance, your AV, and google and/or mozilla.
Umbra is a total hard-core ultra-paranoid, he is King of the lockdown philosophy, and he definitely knows what he is doing and why he is doing it. But you don't need to do everything he does. But if you want to, and you enjoy it, so go for it!Ok thanks shmu26. I am using settings I feel less than ideal right now compared to Umbra's setup. I ran NVT for a few hours when I installed it, then I unchecked "MS Windows system protected..." and "Allow all software from Program Files...". Then for signed I have "Allow only signed by Trusted vendors". So I have quite a number of allowed Windows processes...looks like around 100 that were allowed before I changed the "Allow Windows..." setting. This seems fairly effective, but lockdown is tempting.
This installation of Windows is maybe a week old. I have been protected with Comodo Firewall/360 TS, so should I be worried to go to Umbra's setup? As he suggests, it must be done on a clean system.
