Viruses effect on the registry. RRS feed

  • Question

  • The average user does not know what the registry is let alone what it looks like. One should make a log of any registry inquiries that have happened over the life of the machine. If this log is read by any vendor of virus and spyware software, they can tell whether the registry has been changed. If these changes can be confirmed with software vendors (a phantom IP inquiry perhaps)  one may be allowed to proceed. If not registered as an anti-virus or anti-spyware software vendor, they would receive a smart bogus copy that can be traced. Everyone would recieve a copy but unrecognized vendors would recieve bogus tracable copies. Would it be usefull to do this?

  • Hi,


    Thank you for suggestion. It would be immensely helpful to us if you also submitted you idea for new products, feature requests, and everything else like that to our product feedback website.

    That way, we can aggregate these requests all together and use that data to
    help us make our decisions about what features we should add , and so much more. The data is very important to us.


    Feedback site!
