    I've used Spyshelter for a long time. It's provides good protection. A solid one. Yet it's very light.

    And how would the two complement each other, if you don't mind explaining?

    If anything tries to execute with AE,then I would always deny,however If I download something then of course I am going to allow it and whitelist it. If something is unsigned its deny by appguard and if its signed its guarded. Appguard also has script protection and memory Guard for the MBR { Master Boot Record} then we have Customize settings of AppGuard that can be configured of what can read/write.On that note,there maybe some overlap but they play nice together and IMO it's a double defense. Its fast, light and one of the two most powerfull protective security software to date.

    Also note both Appguard and AE are running on a 1.66 GHZ netbook with two Gigs of ram 2 core Atom.So obvious it's not a power house but it runs as if I have no security at all and with the protection both offer its a winning combination.

    Okay I understand now. Thank you for the clarification and explanation. I might try it on one my pcs sometime soon as I have licenses for both of them. I have never used them together though. Let's see how it goes. Any tips on how to make them go along nicely, D ?

    Not really there playing nice out of the gate,However I did put AE in the power Apps of AppGuard to be sure that dont interfere.

    Completely no slow downs at all. All apps run smooth, system boot fast, no web browsing issues.

    Although i can tell nothing bad about NIS (in fact,i like it a lot-no slowdowns,no lags,everything is smooth and fast),simply i'm just not a fan of a standalone security suite.So back to..

    I sometimes flip between browsers, but when it comes down to it, the must-haves are Comodo Firewall, Avast Anti-Virus and Malwarebytes Pro. Sandboxie is very nice too.

    If only they could make a browser with the security of Chrome, the interface of Internet Explorer 9, the extensions of Firefox and the speed of Opera... I'd use that. :p

    There was just too much conflict with my other security software. Firefox started giving error messages, boot up slowed down, RunSafer of OA would not function on browsers, email clients, pdf readers,etc. I just gave up after both Emsisoft and Webroot Support said I had just too much AV and they were bound to conflict. So I gave away WSA to my friends and family. And put EAM one of my sony vio pcs all alone. So no more conflicts. I will put Ubuntu next year on my netbook as XP supports ends in 2 years. Meanwhile, I'm using the setup on my sig on 3 of pcs........
