    ive recently installed boclean after my trial with anti-bot. i was wondering what the differences are with these programs? i heard somewhere on here both are like comparing apples and oranges; one is 30bucks, and other is free lol. what do u guys think about these programs?
    personally, boclean is light like antibot, and no detected threats so far, like antibot.

    Scrap AB and opt for ThreatFire if you desire real HIPS

    TF is not a "real HIPS", it is a behavior blocker. Behavior blockers and full blown HIPS are different. To the topic though, I have no experience with AB, but most of my trials with TF involved lots of flagging of good behaviors and rough system performance. BUT, that is MY case only, others have no issues with it.

    boclean just scans in memory for malicious processes, while antibot is a behavior blocker that covers all "bad" behavior.

    What a load of BS ! Why?Because of this:

    Exactly, my experience too. That's why I opted for AB. :thumb: When that one appears on your screen, you'll bet there's something wrong. That means time to pull the plug and clean up or restore an image. (if you made that.)
