It worked fine on one machine. Nice app.
On the 2-nd one while scanning it always locks when scanning file %windows%\system32\dciman32.dll
I'm not blaming the program for this...

A "must have" program.

Keep up the good work.

It's a superb security tool. donbregman's AVG came up with a false positive. Runscanner is totally clean, but like many security apps it does some "suspicious" things in order to check things out.

Runscanner is highly respected at security forums including, for example, Wilders Security

Did you ever think, maybe it could be a false positive?

Anyways this a handy similar to HijackThis. Very useful.

When I downloaded th file, My AVG anti-virus program alerted me to the fact that it contained a Trojan Horse SHeur AEYQ. I sent it to the virsu vault and subsequently deleted it.

A tool mooted as a replacement for Hijackthis! and Sysinternals AutoRuns.

The interface is not nicest, but is servicable.

It has certain features not available in AutoRuns including the ability to filter out none-signed files (Autoruns does only microsoft, RunScanner does either or both), host file listings , built in process lister (fairly basic but servicable with the ability to simultaneously kill self protecting processes) etc.

Overall it seems to be worth having, once they iron out all the bugs.

5 to appreciate the hard work, but I would rather use SysInternals->Autoruns. This has some way to go. Users generally don't like any UI that looks like it has ads....Please fix UI.
