HIPS it should ne noted is a very educational experience also for those interesting in learning the CHAIN-OF-EVENTS and IDENTIFICATIONS of their system and exactly what interacts when and why. That's a benefit i truly admired in SSM and now EQSecure 3.41. For any who also hunger for accurate information as well as the security it offers thru user interaction, these programs are a technological Marvel IMHO. They definitely replaced resident AV' & AS's for me and i've experienced a much cleaner and stable system thanks to them. They can greatly elevate your own awareness of Windows internal workings. Some prefer a little noise to a sour stomach.
