I did a little searching on here but could not find the answer I was looking for and decided it would be faster to just make a post. Question 1- With Prevx I see that the free version will detect malware but removal of malware is not included unless a user upgrades. That is fine, no problem. But the question I have is this- does Prevx allow the malware to excute and just notifies the user that malware is present? Or does Prevx free version prevent the malware from executing? Other question- I am finding a real problem with most HIPS programs working on my computer. I have 32 bit Vista Home Premium. My security in Nod32, SAS Pro, PC Tools firewall with enhanced security verification enabled. I also keep SpywareBlaster updated and normally use either Google Chrome, Opera or Firefox browsers. On demand scans include Avira and MBAM. I am also behind a high speed modem with built in firewall. I have tried Comodo firewall with Hips enabled as well as Threatfire but both caused issues with my computer. There were also issues with Online Armor. I download a lot from the internet- programs and videos. Would Prevx free version provide some security that a combo of Nod32, SAS Pro and PC Tools firewall do not provide? I have pretty much given up on the HIPS programs and was thinking something like Prevx may help in that regard. Maybe replace SAS Pro with Prevx free and use SAS Pro on demand only? Thanks for any info. Especially to question #1.
