With all the script virii being emailed around these days, and virus authors getting more clever by the minute, it's important to do everything you can to ensure you aren't their next victim.
AnalogX Script Defender intercepts all requests to execute a variety of different script types that are commonly used to infect your computer - Visual Basic Scripting (.VBS), Java Script (.JS) and Windows Scripting (.WSH) are the most common and can all be intercepted by SDefender. Best of all, you can add other scripting extensions later on when virus authors figure out how to exploit something else.
Operation is *VERY* simple; just run the program, make sure you have the extensions listed that you want to intercept (normally the default should be fine), then choose 'Install Intercepts' - that's it! If you would like to test it to make sure everything is operating properly, I've enclosed a Visual Basic script that will open up a message dialog - if you've followed the above procedure then SDefender should pop open and ask you if you would like to execute the script file. If you choose to execute it, then the script should run normally, or you can choose to abort the execution.
If the enclosed script (test.vbs) does not run on your system normally, this means you do not have Visual Basic Scripting installed on it (normally it gets installed with IE5). This will not impact SDefenders ability to block any other scripts on your system (it ONLY intercepts execution calls, nothing else), but you will have to install the Intercepts again once you install VBScript in order to have it work correctly. If you would like to install VBScript (part of the Windows Scripting Host), then just go into the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs, Windows Setup Tab, select 'Accessories' then click the 'Details' button; scroll down to 'Windows Scripting Host' and put a check by it - that's it! Remember that you must do the 'Install Intercepts' again after it's installed to get SDefender to intercept the scripts.
If you do decide to uninstall SDefender for some reason, make *SURE* to load it up and choose 'Remove Intercepts' before running the uninstaller - this is the only way for it to restore your system to the state it was before you installed it.
Extra-special thanks to the guys over at WebAttack.com who suggested this program, designing the logo, and even supplied the test.vbs file - how's that for cool! :)
