    Thanks, I like to have a layered defense w/o the hassle of daily updating.

    As far as a Policy Based HIPS goes there currently is only DefenseWall and GeSwall, neither which is 64-bit at the moment.
    Perhaps a 64-bit Classical HIPS would work for you.

    Not a bad choice, SpyShelter Firewall is pretty strong but falls short on some personal testing done by myself, (Xp Home SP3 32-bit) your mileage may vary.

    Thanks for the tips Kees, but I'm having no performance issues or any incompatibility issues running DW and AG together.
    Perhaps your suggestion will be of use to other members here. :)

    Virtual Machine running Debian LXDE for web browsing and mail. Everything is isolated and behind a virtual NAT. The only thing shared is the clipboard (one-way to the guest). Nothing leaves the VM.

    What about COMODO Defense+ ?

    What about it?
    Comodo Defense+ is more of a classical HIPS, is it not?

    Bufferzone has the option to sandbox all new executables on your harddisk + other drives (contain all, contain signed, contain none).

    I believe the sandbox of C+ (indeed a classical HIPS) can be configured to sandbox all new unsigned programs, so that is some sort of (policy) containment.

    But I agree that GeSWall and DefenseWall resemble the definitions of policy based HIPS more closely. AppGuard also qualifies as a policy based HIPS with the HIPS being limited to file, registry, memory protection and execution protection (although quiet effective with this first stage attack vector focus)

    Defense+ is a classical HIPS if you disable the sandbox and set it in Paranoid Mode.

    In blue the changes. Don't want to offend Kees1958, but SAFE-LUA was my signature :D

    Running Sandboxie and Privatefirewall. Downloads are my main vulnerability, so I have the download folder sandboxed, and an Emsisoft Emergency Kit shortcut for scanning just the download folder before taking anything out.
