Microsoft Forefront Client Security VS Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0

I did a test between Microsoft Forefront Client Security VS Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0

Install both client into the MS Windows 2003 Server with SQL 2005 and MS Rights Management Services Server running.

Shown below are the memory utilize by both AV

So here we can see that Trend Micro and MS forefront have a tie! Both use the same amount of memory. But please bear in mind that the Forefront fail the spycar.org test. Therefore Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0 is still a better choice.

Luna Sea - I for you Lyrics

nee hontou ha dare mo
nee aisenai to iwarete
kowagari no kimi to deai
yatto sono imi ni kizuita
kizutsuku tame ima futari deatta nara
kanashisugiru yo
kokoro kara kimi ni tsutaetai...
kitto tada hontou no kimi no sugata wo motomete

mada bukiyou ni warau ne
mada kanashimi ga niau kara
kimi to deau tame dake ni
sou umareta nara
kaerareru ka na...

kokoro kara kimi ni tsutaetai
kizutsukisugi dakedo
mada ma ni au yo.
kokoro kara kimi wo aishiteru
kimi ni furu itami wo
subete I for You Wow

kokoro kara kimi ni tsutaetai
kimi no egao
itsumo mitsumeraretara
kokoro kara kimi wo aishiteru
kimi ni furu hikari wo
atsumete agetai
subete I for you.

Microsoft Forefront Client Security Benchmark

I was doing an evaluation of the Microsoft Forefront Client Security in Windows 2003 server and the verdict of the spycar test are:-

Spycar Scoring
HKCU_Run : Spycar change allowed
HKCU_RunOnce : Spycar change allowed
HKCU_RunOnceEx : Spycar change allowed
HKLM_Run : Spycar change allowed
HKLM_RunOnce : Spycar change allowed
HKLM_RunOnceEx : Spycar test not performed
IE-HomePageLock : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillAdvancedTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillConnectionsTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillContentTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillGeneralTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillPrivacyTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillProgramsTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-KillSecurityTab : Spycar change allowed
IE-SetHomePage : Spycar change allowed
IE-SetSearchPage : Spycar change allowed
AlterHostsFile : Spycar change allowed

WTF!! It means simple spyware also cannot block!

The installation itself is very crappy. A single server installation require the following configuration. The resource needed to manage a bunch of AV clients increased because it require you to install WSUS , MOM and the SQL2005 with the SQL 2005 reporting server as well.

And another issue with forefront client is even i update the pattern from the internet but the screen shot still shows the old version. However the dialog box say no new update available.. so which is which?

December 11, 2009, customers who use Office 2003 will be unable to open Office 2003 documents

Starting on December 11, 2009, customers who use Office 2003 will be unable to open Office 2003 documents that are protected with the Active Directory Rights Management Service (AD RMS) or with Rights Management Services (RMS). Customers will also be unable to save Office 2003 documents that are protected with AD RMS/RMS.

Users may receive the following error message when they try to open AD RMS-protected or RMS-protected documents by using Office 2003:

"Unexpected error occurred. Please try again later or contact your system administrator"


This symptom affects Office 2003 products that are used together with AD RMS/RMS. This includes Word 2003, Excel 2003, PowerPoint 2003, and Outlook 2003. This does not affect the 2007 Microsoft Office system.


The expiry date for the license information within the definition file that is used by Office 2003 to enable IRM functionality is set to December 10, 2009. This problem occurs because the expiry date was not renewed.


To work around this problem, open the document by using the 2007 Microsoft Office system.

Switching off to the faster Nvidia GPU, it takes under 2 seconds and one need not log off and will attain around 2 hours of intense gaming. The tiny laptop was shown off and an Mx11 was also connected to a larger monitor to demonstrate how the laptop which has the display port, HDMI and VGA ports connects to larger monitors and even HDTVs to play games.

Dell claimed that the Call on Duty Modern Warfare 2 will run at over 30 fps in full HD mode and with settings set to high.
