What can you use DiskShield for?
« on: June 11, 2008, 03:24:59 PM »
1) You want to give your computer to your kids, but you want it back in one piece and without your settings modified, without having games installed, without having all sort of crap introduced to your PC!!


Pls write your thoughts about what Diskhield can be used for.
thanks

2) Use it in place of all of your security apps. If you were to get infected, just restart and the virus(es) would be removed.

you can use the app for testing purposes if you want some programs to test.

It is usefull if you want to be anonymousle on the web.

It is usefull if you always want the same configuration at all time on your pc.

If you want to erase all pc activity on your pc

Hi Guys,

We would like to announce that COMODO DiskShield 1.0.0.7 BETA is available for download and testing.

What is COMODO DiskShield?
----------------------------------------

COMODO DiskShield is a disk virtualization software which could protect your computer configuration instantly by turning the disks into virtual disks. With CDS, all the changes made to a disk, such as copying, deleting files/folders, formatting the disk etc. are going to be temporary.  All the changes will be eradicated when you restart the PC.

Why would you need such a product?
----------------------------------------------------

- because you don't want any changes to be made to your PC,
- because  you want to let your kids or friends mess around with your computer,
- becaue you want to browse the internet and go anywhere you like and not worry about consequences,
- because you are an educational institituion and sick and tired of support costs because users mess up the PCs,
- because you are a business and want your PCs operating at max without any changes,
- because you have an adequate imagination to find a use for it

Known Issues:
--------------------
- CDS 1.0.0.7 does not work with multi-boot Vista computers.
- CDS 1.0.0.7 does not protect against RAW disk accesses(build 8 has this feature)
- There are known incompatibility issues with various low level disk management utilities

Bug Reports:
-----------------
Please use http://forums.comodo.com/comodo_diskshield/comodo_diskshield_bug_reports-t23655.0.html to report your bugs. Our moderators collect these bugs and submit them to the devs.

I might need this when I'm out of the house for a few days. Usually when I come back my brother or sister uses my computer and something is wrong. Not always, but sometimes. Was completely unaware of this release.

I'll check out the bugs and might give it a shot.  (B)

I think all motivations for using CDS have been mentioned already, I can only tell my vision.

The number of threats has increased enormously, so much that it is impossible to blacklist all of them. That's why developpers of scanners have to make a choice and detect/remove the most dangerous threats only and the rest of the threats, which are not detected/removed remain on your computer.
The majority of the users (= less-knowledgeable users) don't know this, because their scanners tell them "Congrats, 0 threats found !!!" and that message gives them the illusion of having a malware-free computer, but being malware-free in your mind, doesn't mean you have a malware-free system also, although most average users like to believe this.
I consider myself as an average user with a very poor knowledge of internet, malware and anti-malware, but that doesn't mean I'm stupid and when a scanner tells me I'm malware-free, I always think "What about the threats, you didn't detect/remove ?". That kept me awake until I discovered Immediate System Recovery (ISR) softwares, like CDS.
Of course CDS is too new and still in beta, so I use another ISR-software, but that doesn't matter.

As a preparation, I first separated system and data completely for several good reasons, which also means I can now use any new ISR-software and replace any ISR-software with another one without any problems and without being worried about my data, because my data isn't an obstacle anymore in my system partition.

An ISR-software, like CDS keeps my system partition UNCHANGED during EACH reboot. Each threat "changes" your harddisk, that's how threats betray themselves, that's their weakness. Use that weakness to remove them, because the anti-dote of "change" is "anti-change" and CDS is an "anti-change" software.
CDS removes three types of threats : known threats + unknown threats + unborn threats. That's the perfect removal tool of threats of today and of any day after today in the future.
Another VERY BIG advantage of CDS is that ANY user can use it, including less-knowledgeable users.
There is alot more to tell, but that is enough for today. ;)

I'll use this program to test programs. If i didn't like them or have got a "present", i'll reboot and registryand/or infection cleaned.
If you install and uninstall a lot of programs( i like to do it), registry became full of trash.
And, of course, when my sister com to my house and use my PC, reboot, and possibles problems are out.
