I know, its too late.. because i found this beta test contest only two days before. and i tested the rc2 version...
GUI : 9/10
Speed & Memmory Usage : 8/10
Virus Detection : 6/10
Overall : 7/10
-> ASD not detecting any virus if the program terminated and start again. untill the computer restarts. (sometimes)
-> ASD not even detecting on EICAR antivirus test file, maybe on above situation.
-> If skin folder is deleted or renamed, the whole program crashed. better to keep the skin files in a single encrypted file.
-> i simply renamed the background file or if any skin file missing then that part of the program goes wrong. for a product standard avoid this kind of skin files access.
-> the database file is readable and editable. it needs to be encrypted.
-> i check with many virus files and ASD detects only some of them. *
-> ASD not detecting virus inside compressed files (rar)
-> too many individual core files, that a cracker can easily access. avoid it.
-> ui colour theme option.
-> web protection system ( allowing and blocking website by category )
-> need usb autorun disabling & virus detection
-> need a firewall system monitoring network activities
-> scan memory at start up to detect unwanted programs
-> scanning file size limit (user can set the scanning file size and file type, eg : user set 300mb. then scanning skips files larger than user defined size and file types. )
-> in home screen , a small notificaion about last scan.
-> show warning if a program is not digitally signed by trusted software vendors
-> a optional background scanning system other than real time scanning, the program will preform the full system scan without using too much memmory.. to perform when watching movies, etc..
-> introduce a new system to detect social network scams and virus. (eg: an alert to user that the webpage contains a scam. or something like that.)
-> drag and drop file scanning
-> for program security , check wheather any core files missing or modified on program start up.
-> on privacy clean add support to other browsers. option to clean complete internet activity of all browsers in one click.
-> check the system rapidly for optimization. and alert the user that the system needs a optimization, also auto optimization.
-> current system statistics graph
-> a sleep mode, and option to switch automatically to sleep mode when larger programs like games, video rendring.. etc..
-> check hard disk and ram for errors and optimize.
-> option to remove/edit start up programs, (from both registry & startup folder)
-> a windows side widget for ASD
* I have a windows virus collection rar file. it contains around 40 virus programs. contact me if ASD wants it for testing. i cant attach it here..
hope this helps ASD to improve. and i looking forward for a prize if this helps ASD.
