    ok were back to a topic. I guess it glitched or something, because when ever a mod has changed my topic they say "MOVED" or have an edit saying why they did something. This should be all ok now and if they moved it for a reason my guess is they would tell you.

    Good work with the freeware i ran it on my vmware. Very cool

    As fas as I know the difference between ProSecurity free and SSM free are

    + SSM: basic registry and win ini files
    + SSM: global hooks and library control
    + SSM: basic IE protection
    + SSM: basic window filter option (which I do not use)

    + PS: driver control
    + PS: basic outbound network control

    Comparison paid versions
    + SSM: window filter

    + PS: memory protection

    Free version of SSM offers a little more protection, Paid version of PS offers additional physical memory protection

    Am I right? Please comment experts users of PS and SSM?

    my dislike with SSM free is its an old version, full maybe but its an old version. PS freeware will always contain all the new updates and fixes as the paid version. And perhaps once in a while a new feature will be added to freeware

    Nice to see that you now also provide a freeware version, but I believe SSM Free is still a bit more powerful, I may be wrong though. I also saw that it offers registry protection, but you can not manage the rules, which keys is it protecting?

    no . . SSM freeware is more powerful, but as they say . . its an "old" version. So you are living in the past . All the exploits all the bugs are still open to you. I would trade gimicks and gadgets for actual security in the sense i am more stable and secure than having gadgets and gizmo's from new version

    you dont have to remove the post lol, but if you have a compatability issue or a bug problem, we have our own forum where we check. We are here on wilders as a more light harted chat about PS and opinions and alike. But if we have things on our forum we can go into depth withought making people on wilders think we are taking over their forum. and its alot easier to read fluid posts when we dont have strong details about bugs on wilders. We dont restrict info on our bugs, or hide the fact we might made a boo boo, but just want to keep the deep nitty gritty stuff on our forum.

    TECHWG I'm a little confused about your status. Sometimes your posts sound like you are a just a *user & fan* of ProSec, but in some threads (such as this one) your persistent use of "we" in reference to ProSec makes it sound like you are their employee.

    I think it is a *questionable practice* if an organization has their own personnel post at a public forum in such a way as to lead people to the false belief that they are just another user & fan of that organization's software.

    I'm not saying that this tactic was used in this case but --- If you are NOT a ProSec employee, then why the repeated usage of "we" in your post quoted here? And what should I imply from your granting permission for Kees to leave his post here at Wilder's instead of posting it at the ProSec forum? (Or as you referred to it: "our forum")

    Whether a fanboy,user or employee doesn't really bother me.

    Any and all information about security apps are fine here.

    The authors or employees of such security apps posting here I believe adds to their credibility as I have seen some of the regulars tear a new app to pieces which they are quite capable to do.

    Also if there are points to be raised in regards to a posters status I think it should be sorted out by pm.

    Pro Security free is among the most comprehensive of anti malware solutions, for that we have to thank the dev, comparitively, most other programs are paid, SSM free BSODs on my system, PS OTOH runs fine.

    This version does not really fix the install problem that I have encountered

    uninstall old version - reboot - install this version (Full Version) , reboot in learning mode, reboot in learning mode again, use a little in learning mode, turn off learning mode. Reboot

    system does not fully load the desktop - reboot leave for 10 minutes - pop up from Pro security for one of my auto starts - (regrun in this instance )

    Most instances when the sys freezes loading the desktop NOD's splash screen is loading. I have set Pro security as an exclusion under NOD to see if that helps



    My conclusion right or wrong is that learning mode has missed some of the my normal system behavior. That NOD or another app maybe outpost are not co existing with PS


    Any suggestions would be welcome ....

    I have not noticed any problems loading Nod32 after two reboots. But you may want to leave learning mode on a little longer to load all the system files in PS.
    (3 or 4 reboots)

    Hello. I was wondering as far as the free version of ProSecurity goes. Does anyone think it is better than Cyberhawk? CH did well in some recent tests that are available in another thread here. I do see that PS certainly offers much more in the way of information in it's GUI than CH does, which I like. Also, does the PS Free version support Fast User Switching for Two User Accounts, and is it easy on System Resources? Any info would be appreciated.

    I have been here before PS was even born. I saw AntiKeylogger Elite and decided to help the dev to make it better. Then after introducing him to HIPS he made the decision that HIPS is alot more important than anti keylogging on its own. So thats why i am so entheuiastic about PS because i know he actually cares about the product. Also i am an admin on the forum , so i feel part of this and the developer would agree with me. All i am is ideas/testing etc but i feel like i am a part of it in a small way. And when i refer to "our" forum this is only because i helped set it up. This is all. see ?

    Perhaps you are running too many anti-malware products or something. You should try this in vmware and install one by one your other products and see when you get the problem ?

    TECHWEG, i use ProSecurity 1.22 trial since a few days in one of my two computers and i must say i like it a lot:
    it seems to me very simple without diminishing security at all,in fact i think all main sectors to be covered are taken care of; pop ups are the 'right' number and very clear- i didnt have to read much the Manual before using it, very intuitive and logical.
    Now i posted with a few questions at the ProSecurity forum two days ago,but received no answer at all.
    Perhaps i can pose you the question which is still unanswered:
    do you think there might be any drawback or conflict in theory using ProSec and ShadowUser at the same time? I already used both without any problem of startup/Shutdown -as i had previously done with the other HIPS i experimented with,that is Antihook 2.5,2.6,3.0 and SSM- but who knows,maybe PS is different, although i think everything should be just fine.

    One other question,more InTopic than the previous one is:
    do you know in what exactly PS Free differs from the paid one?
    Still,no news about it at the PS forum.

    Edit- Sorry i had not seen a previous post about the differences btw Free and Paid, now i know,thanks.

    at the top of this thread you will see a picture from the freeware version's comparison page to see how it differs. I would expect no conflict but we do not own this software so we have no idea. I will see if i can obtain a trial of it and see if it conflicts, but what ever happens please let us know. It has been brought to my attention of some rules or "guide lines" about not using the wilders forum to the extent that people may feel this is officlally a products forum. I will do my best to checkthe ProSecurity forum more often. sometimes the developer may know and read your posts and may research before he posts to you if he is unsure of a software. I will look into this
