    Question Anyone here heard of: "Fortego All-Seeing Eye"

    Anyone ever heard of the program:
    "All-Seeing Eye" by Fortego?

    It's a proactive IDS that monitors: Auto Exe, DLLs, Registry, etc.

    http://www.fortego.com/en/ase.html

    If anyone has ever tried this before, how effective is it, and how much resource does it eat up?

    The first difference is that All-Seeing Eye is not actively preventing actions from taking place in your computer,
    Which is why IDS is inferior to IDPS

    and how much resource does it eat up?
    I was wondering when you would get around to that

    I would suggest that you seriously reconsider your choice of Norton. It is a major resource drain and frequently does not play nice with other security software.

    Out of curiosity, what exactly is your hardware?
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    LOL, I remember back in the day our very first PC was one by AT&T (no joke!), and we were happy to upgrade the EVO ram from 4MB to 16MB, and used the PC as a telephone / answering machine!
    It was something like 83MHz and like 20MB of HDD space. XD

    Ah! I see, you are running XP on relatively new kit. Resources shouldn't be that much of an issue, but do watch the Norton conflict thing.

    Yeah, I would love to build a new system using the new Ivy-Bridge processors coming out this year (2012) and with SSDs... but I don't feel like wasting money on something I really don't need ATM (current rig is good enough for my needs/games).
    Now, if I did upgrade, I would probably get Windows-7 64bit.

    Not sure how Windows 8 will fare... seems more geared towards tablet PCs IMHO...

    Unfortunately, XP doesn't understand multicore, so you are not getting the best out of your kit there

    This is Windows 8. I have been using it since the Developers' Preview was released.

    The front screen is touch screen orientated but behind that is just regular Windows. The beta is due out the end of February, so we will know more then. At this point I wouldn't consider upgrading from 7 but certainly would from Vista.

    Oh GOD... don't remind me of Vista!
    I remember I got a copy from my university to install to see how it was... I uninstalled that piece of junk 1-hour after it was in.
    The damn thing was a resource hog, and it would ALWAYS move unneeded files to the swap partition after like 5-min post log-in... which made the system almost unusable during that time.

    Just out of curiosity; Why do you use Ubuntu with XP? Most of your threads have been asking about how you can lock your XP install down better, but why Ubuntu? I'm going to suggest you try a few things here:

    OpenSUSE or SUSE
    Debian
    Mandriva
    PC-BSD

    I'd say Slackware and FreeBSD, but I don't know how much you know about Unix and Linux in general, so I went with easy to install and use distros. Any thoughts?
    Kill the lights, let the candles burn behind the pumpkins’ mischievous grins, and let the skeletons dance. For one thing is certain, The Misfits have returned and once again everyday is Halloween.The Misfits FreeBSD
    Cannibal Holocaust
    SuSE Linux
    Slackware Linux
