Thanks for all the information Frank, I appreciate all the help!

Thanks very much, Frank!  This is excellent (export excel)

2014 August 13
I appreciate this information and your explanation of everything.
This will really help as I construct my report.
These two DAT files are good stuff.
Thanks again for your time.  This is great help and although I’ve been through this before I just like to cover my bases and make sure I understand everything.

2014 August 13
The new export function works great.  I get all the hash values in a single column, I was not getting this previously.
Thank you!

2014 August 13
Frank, you didn’t need to do this!    You are way too accommodating.
I thank you very much

2014 July 29
Thanks, Frank!  The update is very nice.

That is what I was looking for and I will grabe the shared h info from the help file. That was really the only two questions so far. Thanks for your help and your great software.

2014 july 5
I used ares decypter and love it. I have a trial coming up and the shared h file is a key piece of evidence.

2014 June 22
Thank you Frank.  I used the tool in a case right before going to deposition a few days ago.  The tool generated a lot of evidentiary data that I was able to demonstrate to the defense attorneys.  The tool made a huge difference in my presentation. Just wanted to let you know that. 

2014 May 20
Just a quick thank you - used the tool at a series of searches last week - all ares related and the tool worked great.
 thanks again

2014 April 22
Fantastic. We appreciate your hard work and thank you for your quick response. Take care.

2014 April 21
I managed to carve partial entries of share*.dat and your software managed to decrypt those partial entries. The only thing I had to do was renaming the files accordingly and feed them one by one to your wonderful software. Splendid work with the software senior Frank, glad to see it can be used to track prior Ares installs.

2014 April 9

Thank you.  My tech guys are raving about your product.

2013 July 17
Thank you so much and thanks for responding to some of the questions that the forensic agents had inquired about the program.

2013 July 17
The programs works great per  Forensics Agents feedbacks.
2013 July 15
Thank you for your prior assistance and I’ve really enjoyed the ease of the decrypter tool, now that my lab has purchased the license. 

2013 July 11
I am using your Ares evidence tool and I will want to let you know it is a very useful tool.
Thank you sir for taking the time to help me.  Take care.

2013 June 24
Thanks Frank, this helps a lot. It's pretty clear this guy moved his collection to an external drive (his wife and kids also used the same computer). Unfortunately, the investigator did not find the extra drive but we do have enough to charge him with possession and distribution. The Ares files will be very important if we go to trial to show that there were many additional files that had, at one point, been on the computer.
Thanks again.

2013 June 21

Thanks Frank !
The program is amazing !  It really helped us out on several search warrants we executed last week !
We will be using it on every Ares case from now on.
Take care,

2013 June 16
Yes, thanks Frank. It worked perfectly. One more offender off the street.

"Got everything worked out and started using decrypter on a case yesterday. It's amazing the data you get from the shared folders. I had one with over 400 entries but the share.dat file was only a few kb is size. Very impressed.
Thanks again"

"From using EnCase and the demo version, it was obvious how well your software worked on the ShareH and ShareL folders.
I do forensic exams on a lot of the cases initiated by ... and the Homeland Security Investigation agents, and with Ares appearing to gain popularity in this area, your software will be an excellent tool to have.

It seems Ares Decrypter can also be ran on a live machine? If true (yes it is), that will be awesome for our on-site previews."

"Yes I did finish my case, it worked great, I forwarded the results of the tool along with the price quote up the chain of command and still waiting approval, I know our Federal Agent with ICE was going to purchase one and if I don't hear soon I'm going to just pay for it myself."

2012 december 7
"I used the Demo yesterday and it was like 'WOW', the case was a Roundup P2P case using Ares, the suspect a prior sex offender was not home during the search warrant, we had five running computers in the house, the suspect was running Windows 8 and was remotely trading from his Tablet with an App., I used the decrypter and within minutes had enough evidence confirming files downloaded, GUID, SHA1 and user name."

"Works very well. I like the additional values that you have been able to decrypt from the NTUSER.dat
I crossed checked it with your old version and results have been validated on my case
Thanks a bunch"

Some of the guys that I went to a forensics class with said your software was excellent

2012 september 27
The program did very well.   I submitted the PO, and it is currently waiting on Accounting.

2012 august 29
We have been using the program in demo mode, and have found it very useful. I would like to order the company license.

2012 august 22
"The tool parsed out the search terms and the decryption of the ShareH and ShareL files was awesome.  It provided the insight for the a good interview in which the suspect confessed, so another bad one off the streets."

2012 august 20
Don't forget to send the bill. I am loving it on this case I am working. Lots of good stuff.  I mounted the eo1 and pointed the tool at the users ntuser.dat file and as advertised I have wonderful search terms

2012 july 31
Frank, Thanks, I enjoyed the insight in your explanation.  No answer other than your tool.  Good reviews from the investigators out there.  Thanks for the one week trial.
I used the trial and it decoded good information for the case.  It will help as the suspect deleted the actual videos.

2012 july 11
Frank, your ares decrypter was an excellent tool and helped us with getting this child molester indicted. Thanks for your assistance.
