Re: BadUSB devices

Update: the first anti virus software with BadUSB protection has been released:

I still would prefer this to be handled by USR.

Control Write Access to Removable Devices or Media

Hello, these days security has a much higher value and is more looked after than ever before. The BadUSB devices are just one example (see the other thread). Regarding simple personal security I was looking for a way to close my USB ports to prevent others from stealing data. In fact that is quite s...

Re: BadUSB devices

Thanks for adding this feature in the future!

The icon - well, once you get past 50 years you will understand that small things like this are easily overlooked :shock: :wink:

BadUSB devices

Hello Igor, since the demonstration and demo of BadUSB devices, which take over your computer unnoticed by coming as USB thumbdrive with internal USB keyboard, I wondered if it isn't quite easy to fix this potential threat for USR users: Adding an option that every time a USB keyboard is detected a ...

Re: System clock resolution 1ms

Hello Igor, thanks for replying quickly and giving out all the details. Much appreciated! Question: when will the update of USR be available? This being a minor update I fear it will not be easy to find out as you no longer openly communicate the versions and updates of USR. I dare to say that becau...

Re: System clock resolution 1ms

I can confirm this finding. As soon as USR is started and sitting in the dock (doing nothing...) the timer is changed to 1 ms. That should indeed not be necessary. And just in case you missed why this topic suddenly comes up: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ianmorris/2014/07/14/googles-chrome-web-browse...

Re: External HDD will not release

You did not read this forum nor Googled that string. It's a problem caused by MS. See for example here:

Offtopic: LockHunter

I stumbled over a strange file in my Windows\system32 directory, with chinese letters, about 100 MB, and no read or delete access. Like many others I got alarmed and thought about some virus. What was frustrating was that I could not even fnd out what it does or where it belongs. I used Unlocker 1.9...

Re: External HHD keeps dropping out or is not recognised

Your problems are fully hardware related (quite obvious). Nothing USBSR could change.

USB Safely Remove 5.1 was tested and it's working fine on Windows 8, except some minor graphical issues. The next version will come within a month and will contain a full support of Windows 8.
Very good news!

Re: Always updating Windows Start Key in Registry

Yes. it looks like USB Safely Remove (and Zentimo) have been abandonded by their programmers. No response for a long time, the blog is filled with spam, reported problems (especially with USB 3) stay unanswered and therefore unsolved. That would be bad for anyone having just bought the quite expensi...

Re: Make devices really invisible

Sorry, but I fully disagree with the statements here. As someone who continually installs new hardware, or sees the already installed hardware shuffeled around for unknown reasons (you gotta love plug&pray and external USB hubs) I sometime only see new hardware presented as hidden device. Then I can...
