    Ok so reading up on shell extensions it seems easy. *BUT* it will then require this application be an installed program. ill work on an updater for it also

    well it would be cool to consider to kill the process that holding killing the file

    and cleaning all the file's leftover in the "FAT" , "NTFS" etc ...

    edit :consider not to close the program before ending the task it perform at lest the file !

    thats what the multi-attack is for. if something happens, parts of the file are not usable. cleaning up with filesystem would mean a freespace wipe and that would take forever depending on the size of the partition ( takes for ever in ccleaner )

    i know it's false positive, but nod32 won't let me download or install, had to turn it off.
    context menu seems to be working, will test more later:)

    Lol I wish there was another obfuscator as good as confuser. But at this time it is the best and it makes me mad that I have to fight with AV companies to get them to allow it. But after its allowed it will be outdated lol. Long pointless fight!!

    Anyways thanks for testing it :D

    I gave it a few different runs, the last run was a larger file (over 2gb) just to get an idea of time it would take to make 3 passes on it lol. The really nice thing about this, it uses little to no processor, memory, and hard disk use on my laptop, I could have minimized this while it was killing that wim and continued doing whatever I wanted to and forgot about it.

    Well done PMR :biggrin:

    I should note, I had a few things running as well, so memory is up a little more than if it were running while the system wasn't in use.

    (OP)
    Nice for me it does the same thing very little to no indication of it doing anything lol. To get it to react I have to run 3-4 instances at the same time. I think I am going to add a simple hash engine to it for SHA512 for the fun of it :p
