    I was thinking about getting Defense Wall, been ages since I've looked at them and noticed they still don't have a x64 version.

    I have a business laptop that's mission critical for work, so I want something that is really good, if possible...

    THANKS

    I heartily recommend OnlineArmor- Premium. :thumb:

    Private Firewall (it's free) also has pretty good HIPS coverage, plus Anomaly Detection as well.

    Private Firewall, what the OA free version?

    I never considered OA because I didn't see any mention of HIPS, so I just considered it to be more on just the firewall side of things, port blocking, etc...

    How is OA Premium compared to Outpost Pro, also does Outpost include HIPS?

    The reason I was looking at Comdo is that it has AV, Firewall and HIPS...

    Appguard looks pretty impressive too.


    THANKS

    OA-Premium is FW + HIPS. OA++ is FW + HIPS + AV. These are NON-free versions.

    OA++ is presently on sale at 50% off.

    ***All versions of OA run on WindowsXP SP3 (32bit), Vista SP2 (32bit) and Win7 (32bit & 64bit).

    ***Capabilities of OA-Premium: Online Banking Mode, Kernel Mode Security, Automatic Updates, Web Shield, Phishing Filter, Execution Protection, Termination Protection, Autostart Protection, Firewall, Program Guard w/Advanced Mode (HIPS), Keylogger Detection, Import/Export Settings, Tamper Protection, Transparent Blocking, DNS Spoofing Protection, Script/Worm protection

    In addition to all of the above capabilities, OA++ also includes Ikarus Antivirus and Antimalware plus Rootkit Scanner. Ikarus is among THE very best antivirus programs now extant.

    Yes. OP is available as a HIPS + FW and also as a HIPS + FW + AV.

    No. CIS is a very good security suite. Its AV is not on a par with Ikarus, but is improving rapidly. Its HIPS (D+) is quite good -- a bit more intrusive than OA but very powerful.

    My personal choice remains OA but you won't go wrong with ANY of these -- OP, OA, CIS, or Private FW. With the latter (PFW) you will of course need a stand-alone antivirus. There are several excellent choices for stand-alone AVs (check the forums here to select one.)

    One odd thing with CIS is with Firefox in the sandbox I had problems copying and pasting, so I ditched it.

    I'm going to give OA++ a try that looks nice...

    THANKS

    From OA forum;

    "It's hard to say, we just do not have snapshot with XP SP2. Theoretically there should not be any problem."

    Well I've decided for now I want to try OA++ but I can't afford it and I saw earlier in the year they were giving away free licenses. :(

    But I saw this post for 50% off, but still can't afford $29 right now...

    If anyone knows of any other free license deals please let me know...


    THANKS

    So why not try PFW together with a free AV, such as Avast? Check HERE for a recent poll on free AVs.

    Total price for the above set-up -- $zero.

    Well I'm running OA++ seems pretty decent, but some times my windows respond a little slow, not sure what part of OA++ is slowing it down, but if it keeps it up I'm going to ditch it.

    I didn't realize FortiClient had a free app...

    By the way is Anti-Malware the same as Mamutu just with an AV?

    This is what I'm thinking next:

    Mamutu, Ikarus and OA Free
    or
    AntiMalware, OA Free
    or
    Is OA++ still a better choice over the two above?

    NOW this is what I probably really need to get later; ;)

    THANKS

    P.S. Darn OA++ is still making my windows not respond like they should they lag a lot.. :(
