API Guard Private

Checker on 9 May 2013

API Guard is an "application firewall" that supervises actions made by applications on files, registry and processes. It comes in handy when you need to run untrusted programs and you want to restrict when the executable can do (eg. write to the registry, delete files etc.)

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
License: Freeware/Open Source
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch ApiGuard.exe.

i've been looking for something like this for a long time. very pleased with this one. seems to work as advertised.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me and I really would like this app. I follow the readme and I get:
"Error: Spy_dll.DLL doesn't exists in current directory!"

@nt_support
Double click on RunWithDLL.exe, then it works fine.
Had the same problem.

Seems just the app I needed too but Mcafee is blocking the RunwithDLL.exe.
WTF is new malware.J Anyway?

New malware.j seems to be anything that mcafee doesn't like the look of.
It's picked up with their heuristic scanners.
So far I have about 35 of these "possible viruses" and everything is running just how I want it on my pc.

I think mcafee targets any program that might be in competition but free.
Actually I heard somewhere that it basically means it's packed with UPX.

It's a good idea. System Safety Monitor (SSM) does the same thing & MUCH more. However, SSM is not free.
