As long as you’re connected to the Internet, your computer is exposed to numerous threats, but staying off the grid doesn’t make your PC completely safe. The sad part is, neither does an AV solution fully protect your system, but it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t install one anyway. Besides the Antivirus, there are also other utilities that go hand-in-hand, just like Sentinel.
The initial launch prompts you with a message that asks you to run a first scan, from which you cannot escape. Don’t be scared, because it doesn’t last that long, and it only makes sure files on your system are intact. There’s no post-process screen with results, and if all goes well, the main window pops up pretty soon.
In terms of visual design, there’s nothing outstanding, with elements a bit poorly integrated, but somehow managing to provide some personality. The upper part of the menu is fitted with several navigation tabs, such as one that takes you to the main menu, to scan, regwatch, appwatch, as well as options.
Don’t get the application wrong, because its main goal is not to identify viruses, but rather parts heavily affected by them. That’s why it’s a good idea to pay a visit to the options menu to integrate any antivirus app you might have with this program. This can be done either by selecting from a list and setting all parameters and exceptions, which works for advanced users, or to rely on a built-in wizard to help you configure compatibility.
The main tab is used as a presentation screen so you might as well go ahead and switch to Scan to see if your PC is OK. By default, the system folder is scanned, but you can easily add any folder you want, but only one is scanned per process. In addition, file types to look up need to be selected, with options like DLL, DRV, SYS, OCX, EXE, COM, PIF, and SCR.
Besides scanning system files, you can use two built-in watchers to keep an eye on any registry or application changes that occur in real time. Registries might require a system restart for proper functionality, while the application watcher can even provide the task list so you can browse through process IDs without using external tools to identify them.
The scan process depends on the folder you put under the scope. A new window pops up to show real time analysis, while results can only be viewed, or repaired through dedicated controls. If all goes well, you can make the app run on startup and have scans automatically performed to be on the safe side.
All things considered, we come to the conclusion that Sentinel is a neat and powerful companion for almost any kind of Antivirus solution. It takes a little time to get to know the set of features and set it up. It’s fast, and it provides a helping hand in restoring or attempting to prevent malicious infiltrations and heavy damage to your system.
Sentinel ReviewRead more
all right hello and welcome so today we're gonna be talking about the Sentinels because recently you can kind of use whatever suddenly you want so I want to talk about the advantages and disadvantages to each of them so let's just get started and we're just going to go kind of in order here so carrier obviously carrier used to be the choice because of vacuum but now vacuum is across all of the Sentinels so vacuums new precept for carriers new precept as it were is a mo case which gives you 25% more ammo capacity and all your weapons which is decent and also functions as an ammo conversion for pistols and rifles at a twenty five percent rate and 100 percent conversion for shotguns and snipers which is pretty solid it can alleviate the ammo concerns of a lot of different weapons to a pretty reasonable degree considering it's a Sentinel pretty solid along with that carrier prime is still the Sentinel that is the hardest to take down so keeping your vacuum around for longer is nice mostly in higher levels is that a concern though and it's worth noting that across all of the Sentinels I would suggest never bringing their gun outside of levelling it the reason for that is if your Sentinel is firing its gun it's drawing more threat to itself which gets it killed faster so because the guns don't really make a huge amount of difference with the minor consideration for sweeper which comes with carrier being a relatively high status shotgun that can put blasts on kind of a minor CC consideration but not using a weapon on your Sentinel I think is the correct choice if you want to have your Sentinel around for a much longer period of time because they will draw significantly less threat to themselves so moving on we've got death cube so DEF cube is the worst of all of the Sentinels I think right now he has a four meter range on his precept that is just damage it does nine hundred damage which is basically nothing and it has a 30 second cooldown which is wholly unacceptable because that is nothing I basically keep should have no cooldown and any enemy that is within four meters should be constantly taking 900 damage that would be the only thing that could make this worthwhile a 30 second cooldown on that ability is absolutely ridiculous completely unusable and as much as I like how the cube looks and this skin is fucking fantastic never going to make up that difference without a completely different ability because holy shit moving on we've got dear god erica has some of the same types of concerns in that his CC is inconsistent he's got the electro-pulse and such but it's just not he just doesn't really do it and like the range of Eureka can be OK for his gun but again you're drawing a threat to your Sentinel which is not a good thing and he just doesn't have a lot going on his CC is not consistent enough and it doesn't have a large enough range for to really be worthwhile in my opinion of course moving on we've got Jim this is kind of another stinker unfortunately shinza fatal attraction has a 24 meter range you have to have two enemies within that range for him to activate it and it is a 5 second stun downside it has a 30 second cooldown for a 5 second stun which is really not that great considering Djinn will often just decide not to use this so you can't count on it because you can't be activating it when you want it so there's not a whole lot version to do couple that with him not being like particularly tough in any special way and he just looks really cool like this skin that came out for him is fantastic and I love it but there's no real reason to use Djinn unfortunately Helios on the other hand on the upside I think Helios is up there with carrier Prime if you're the kind of person like me who is a kind of completionist so obviously Helius will scan things for you he is just like obviously along with Jim he's kind of minimum tankiness but as long as you don't put a weapon on him he'd rest significantly less threat and can survive for a pretty reasonable amount of time barring any significant AoE emissions so with that he's filling up your codex which is awesome it's great for just like getting a huge amount of initial completion on your codex so you don't have just sittin missions and scan beyond that he has the detective vulnerability mod from Samaras which makes it so that he could put spots on enemies that give you like two hundred and seventy five percent extra damage which is okay it's only on one enemy at a time and it'll last 10 seconds and it takes two seconds for him to put it on to an enemy which is kind of just a bonus thing it's not really going to make any huge differences but it's better than like death cube for example because it's amplifying your damage as opposed to being low damage coming from Helios so once again just having the kind of overall support nosov helios is really really great especially for people like me who want to complete their codex it is like the single best way to get like a huge chunk of your codex done and also on the up side we've got prism a shade so prism shade is a little bit tougher than a lot of the other Sentinels and shades ability for invisibility is actually pretty solid it can save you in a lot of situations where you might otherwise die basically if an enemy is within 10 meters of you you have come like infinite invisibility as long as you're not attacking and standing by that enemy which means that you can kind of just do whatever you want and also worth noting that warframe abilities don't break the invisibility so there's kind of some weird strategies you can do with keeping like an enemy alive and near you to do some weird stuff with shade but in most cases it's going to be like your teammate is surrounded and you can just walk up to them while they're downed and rez them because now you're invisible because all those enemies are there as well things like that make shade actually really good and just a solid companion also coupled with that his invisibility only has a 10 second cooldown which whenever you need the invisibility it's not really gonna be a thing that you noticed the cooldown so just solid overall shade just he's actually just totally vine he's got a really solid ability that can help you in the situations that actually matter so we've only got one more to talk about that's worm and before we talk about worms ability I'm going to point out a thing that I didn't notice before I started kind of looking at the sandals closer because vacuum got changed and the interesting thing here is that worm normal has 200 and we're prime has 100 health which is real strange and um I don't know if I don't know if that's correct because it feels like like the primes are just an upgrade usually and we're kind of along that path like if we take carrier like 100 100 100 250 Anna these are all higher so maybe maybe warm Prime needs a little bit of a tiny buff but while we're talking about worm his ability crowd dispersion is actually a lot better than I gave it credit for compared to a lot of the other Sentinels so if he had that extra 100 health he would actually be pretty hard to take down kind of comparable to where carrier prime is and along with that he has in a 10 meter area a hard knockdown as long as there are two enemies within that area which is pretty good and it's got a 15 second cooldown which is actually not that bad obviously that is like about half of these severe cooldowns that death cube and Jin have so worm actually comes out looking pretty solid and personally is kind of one of my favorite looking designs worm prime I think looks absolutely fantastic but crowd dispersion actually is solid which really surprised me whenever I was out and testing it because it's a good hard knockdown that you can count on to generally be ready whenever you jump into a fray of enemies which is pretty surprising so if I had to rank these Sentinels in order of like usefulness to myself because I think that these new uses for the centel's are kind of niche outside of some that are just bad like def cube who needs a look probably means a pretty significant buff to get to the kind of the area where all the other signals are I would say even Jin but I think the top three Sentinels are probably Helios carrier and actually worm which really surprised me I think worm and shade are actually incredibly close but I really value the hard knockdown well I think a lot of other people are going to value the invisibility which I just don't put a lot of weight on personally it's still really really good but yeah I think Helios and carrier taking those stops by lots but shade and worm are real close runner ups and that's kind of an overview of how Sentinels are for anyone that was looking to make a decision on them so I'll see you guys tomorrow hope you enjoyed this
