    Have experience with this software (Spyshelter various solutions.. as Firewall, Anti-keylogger with both variants of premium and just trial), but it was about early versions of Spyshelter (now it goes be a little be re-branding now and more "beauty" things around).

    In fact... without big changes... just improvings. And my latest experience as trial-time for current versions of SpyShelter (not firewall, just another solutions) was without something new as "surprises".


    Not sure... that it's can be fake so long time :) But anyway... you should to trust for this company - if you want ot use it. I stop use it/try it... because can not to totally trust for this software, but I can to think about current software as "potentially can be trusted later".


    Also... test-tools (which Spyshelter provided before or maybe still) marked safe/clean by F-Secure (such as - whitelisted). And after some of versions... SpyShelter does not triggered anything by DeepGuard.


    About security-level.... there need to check it more, but common features - nice and good. But it's just because... anything around current realizations (application control and things like voodoooshield) will be with a lot of "required" steps for users.


    But Spyshelter have good configuration-settings and it's can be really helpful tool.

    With potentially... some conflicts between another software and "troubles with security" (because here can be various workarounds, which will be break protection-points).


    Anyway :) It's work as typical protection-things. Anti-keylogger, anti-screencapture and etc.


    Basically F-Secure also have same things, but all of that "hidden" and work "as default" under proactive-technologies and multi-layers protection with "less worry for users" (such as automatic decision and prompts just about too much critical things). There you will be and able to control most of things about common steps and etc.


    If we talk about firewall. It's just should be based... which features you want to see there.

    I can to think about just some points with firewall: modern systems comes with good firewall.

    All other "firewall"-features... in fact...  not really firewall-features... and there can be a lot of default additional tools or "complex"-firewall solutions (but I can to trust just for one of them and it will be same with realization of Spyshelter about features).


    Sorry for my reply.


    It was just brief answer. Common words can be: yes, I have experience with spyshelter and do not think that it's can be a fake (but I have same dreams around this). Protection status can be related "normal or around high", but just because it's same with realizations..... where can not be another design. Such as... there should be control and attention by user.

    I've never used it but can't find anything bad about it from a quick Google search. In fact, it seems to be quite highly rated.

    But also when I go to download trial-versions now... it's already comes with outdated signed certificate (?).


    Such as... it was signed by certs, which goes be already "outdated" today... or something another wrong there (or as design) with that. :)


    So... also (because I will goes to pause... about new try and experience) how I remember.. Spyshelter after uninstallation goes clearly, but some of drivers (network drivers) can be stuck with system (but there can be a reason with 32/64 bit difference and variants of OS). Such as... 64bit - it's a premium feature. I have less experience about 64bit systems and SpyShelter. With another ones.. it's OK, but it's can not be another situation with that kind of "design of protection". It's not really modern ones, but can be angry-protection and it's still work. But also SpyShelter have some points.... which break any protection-features. So... I always thought about SpyShelter as additional to main protection-software (original reason... was "solution" for re-place default Windows Firewall and as additional layer/personal firewall for F-Secure IS; After some experience... I decided.. to stop do that... because Windows Firewall more powerful in compatibility things, F-Secure have most of layers.. which goes be with SpyShelter also and where it's not so greatest. And some of specific features of SpyShelter can be replaced by another software, tools....  or can be not important with local situations. It's also related with virustotal uploader (there I mean features, which can not be as "specific ones" - but comes with SpyShelter as default)). But with all of strange security-applications.... SpyShelter most interesting for me as "close to nice" :) .
