Thank you. I will spread the word about this amazing piece of software.
You should add a stop/pause/resume feature & process priority (foreground,background) feature.


Kinds Regards,
Marius

Nice tool. Thank you!

Thank you. I will spread the word about this amazing piece of software.

Thank you, Mattes57 & neverlight.  I'm glad you like the software.

You should add a stop/pause/resume feature & process priority (foreground,background) feature.

"Cancelling a scan" feature is forthcoming.  Regarding the process priority request, what do you expect to gain from such (honest question)?

Good stuff. Although the help still says it's a front end for tiffinfo. :-)

Thanks!  I uploaded a silent build that should fix that help issue.

"Cancelling a scan" feature is forthcoming.  Regarding the process priority request, what do you expect to gain from such (honest question)?
Sometimes the window gets unresponsive while handling a lot of files. That's why I suggested priority similarly to how archive managers handle things. I'm not sure if it's possible.

Also, it would be very interesting to see a cache system that might speed up the process since some files might have been (already) processed.
Perhaps there should be another action in "View" tab that gives end-users the ability to show only unique files (not duplicates).

Another issue that I've observed is that it does not handle special characters well. Probably a display issue.

And another suggestion would be to rename "Trusted list" to "Trusted Vendors" as this might avoid possible confusion & make the box re-sizable.

I've seen that you get to choose from three different search providers. However, why not let the user choose additional ones? Perhaps it should be configurable since some users might have access to executable databases by using hashes (or other information). Thus, another useful suggestion would be to allow macros. As for example, the user could input $SHA1 (and other) in the url.
Example of such usage (but not necessarily limited to VirusTotal) : https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/$SHA256/analysis/

While I do like that you can use "Open VirusTotal URL(s)" from the right-click menu, it is unclear on how to actually use it from a novice user point of view. This action is available/enabled by default. I'm not sure if it is intended since you can spam this action while not doing anything and not being ok from aesthetics point of view.

Also, the clean action will not do anything if files are being processed. I'm guessing this option could be grayed out or/and inform the user that it is not possible, maybe.

Under "Help" tab > "Contents", users would expect a help file and not a pop-up that describes SigcheckGUI since there is an "About" button. Superseded.

Another suggestion that might be useful regarding quick access would be to add another action in the right-click menu named, for example, "Open File Location".

Maybe, the "Info Box" action from right-click menu should be grayed out for multiple files.

SigcheckGUI or SigCheckGUI -- Is it intended?
 

Thanks,
Marius

Sometimes the window gets unresponsive while handling a lot of files. That's why I suggested priority similarly to how archive managers handle things. I'm not sure if it's possible.

Unfortunately, that unresponsiveness has nothing to do with the process priority.  It has to do with the fact that the UI is waiting for the commandline sigcheck.exe to finish.  There are a few different methods I can use for this so it might be something I can alleviate.

Also, it would be very interesting to see a cache system that might speed up the process since some files might have been (already) processed.

Doubtful that I'd add this.

Perhaps there should be another action in "View" tab that gives end-users the ability to show only unique files (not duplicates).

I can add an option like "Skip duplicates in list" or something like that.  If this is enabled, files that already exist in the list will be skipped.  I'd think the full path would have to match exactly for this to be useful, though.

Another issue that I've observed is that it does not handle special characters well. Probably a display issue.

The app does seem to handle Unicode paths and Unicode filenames without issue so I'll assume you're talking about the actual displayed data.  If so, can you provide me an example of what you're seeing?

And another suggestion would be to rename "Trusted list" to "Trusted Vendors" as this might avoid possible confusion & make the box re-sizable.

Can do.

Ah, help files.  The bane of developers everywhere.   :)  I'm terrible at providing them.   :-[  That said, I do try to write my applications such that, hopefully, a help file shouldn't be needed for the most part.

Another suggestion that might be useful regarding quick access would be to add another action in the right-click menu named, for example, "Open File Location".

Can do.

Maybe, the "Info Box" action from right-click menu should be grayed out for multiple files.

Good point.

SigcheckGUI or SigCheckGUI -- Is it intended?

I've seen both.  However, the official site for the sigcheck.exe program that does the grunt work has it spelled Sigcheck so that's what I went with.

This looks to be an issue with sigcheck.exe itself not being able to handle those characters.  Run a "sigcheck -a c:\windows\explorer.exe" and you'll see what I mean.

Those are not really important anyway. Future versions of Sigcheck might have it fixed.

Thanks for the heads up.  Looks like SigcheckGUI is starting to make some rounds around the internet.

Thanks for the update, skwire.  :up:

Another suggestion would be search functionality.

To clarify, I think you mean a list filter, right?  That is, you type a string in a field and the list is reduced (filtered) to only those processes that match the search string.  I say this, because you can already "type" while in the list and it should match on the filename and highlight it.  Am I correct?

A filtering function based on column data. As for example, searching for a certain vendor, hash, etc.

Also, you should add a message or something for missing <sigcheck.exe>. That might cause some trouble.

Both covered in the latest build.  How does this look?

Hi

Great front-end
have one question, i don't see any drivers on the list, whether you select folder with drivers or select manual some driver (.sys), list is empty
actually when i choose add files, in opened window of \windows\system32\drivers\  i see only few sys files and even i choose them nothing happens, empty columns
i use win 7 sp1 ultimate x64, i'm admin and UAC is turned off
if i copy dozen of drivers for example to desktop i now can see them in add files open window but when select them again nothing happens, columns stay empty
didn't know for sure is it problem on my side, some restriction maybe or with GUI (runned as admin)

if i use just sigcheck.exe everythig is fine
this is shorter example of output from sigcheck, it can check SbieDrv.sys

« Reply #49 on: June 22, 2015, 05:34:12 PM »
skwire, many thanks for this tool!

but I've idea for improve it a little bit

a) can you please add a context menu point on items - "System menu". (near current "Open file location") because PC where I'm using this tool is pretty slow and it have a problem (time) to open "System menu", but open folder/explorer's window with content where I can make right click it takes a lot of time! and more, than I need go back to opened explorer and close it! it's too hard work 8) instead of one right click on item in the list

and other thing. now in case of "Unknown" (column "Virus Total Detection", because it wasn't analyze steel - new file) I need to open folder, than right click on file, and select point "Send to VirusTotal" (I'm using for this point official tool)......


b) I think it more important of all my points. Can you please make possibility to save (automatically or CFGble in Options) results of scann and downloading result's data from VirusTotal web site? because it so loooong to wait each scann.
e.g. now I've waited more than 2hours for analyze 3431 elems (w7x64,x86Folder) and waiting for download results from VirusTotal. And of course this PC have been a spy proxy...
e.g. you can save VT data only if there is HASH of files. and it's better to have possibility to cgf which HASH need to show/calculate. I think you have hash of files in the list, because it need for VirusTotal?
There is need only DB with HASH and quantity of VT detections. I'm right? and it will take not so big size (for this functionality!!!). than other projects can use (download from your project) this DB.


c) columns lose sorting order triangle



what do you think about?
