    I know a few people who use this. They say it is very good and is very light on the system. Not for those who dislike things from China though.

    Thanks, but no:

    1) The malicious program will be uploaded automatically when triggering WiseVector StopX Advanced Detection.

    2) The log of Advanced Detection will be uploaded automatically.

    When uploading, we will know the file locations and your IP address. The file locations can make us to know what system folder the files belong to, if they belong to a system folder, they are malware probably. The file locations can help us to reproduce the environment to test as well. Your IP address can make us to know the GEO position of the files. If false positives or false negatives are from one position frequently, we will know how to improve WiseVector StopX targetedly.

    I woud accept it, if this data woud not be stored on a Chinese server

    There are almost no up-to-date security apps left that work in Windows XP SP3.
    I have also seen that same problem in Windows Vista SP2.

    The ultimate security solution for xp was developed by Microsoft themselves--the Steadystate add-on.

    This allowed you to completely lock down xp so that it boots into a virtual state like a virtual machine and all changes are lost upon reboot. It is actually the origin of MS's virtualization and xp embedded products.

    Since most of us aren't always installing new stuff on our xp installs and just want them to work day-in, and day-out like they have for over a decade, this add-on suits our use-case very well. :)
