    Is there a list of stand alone behavior blockers? I know there is Mamutu but are there others? I am not really interested in a HIPS, just more interested in a behavior blocker. Free or paid doesn't really matter.
    thanks

    That is truly a nice product. I don't know how well it is supported but there used to be a representative in Wilders called Ishan.

    PE Guard was a brilliant HIPs software....there was some talk of more development last June (2011) but sadly nothing has surfaced....I'm still using V 2.1

    Not being a fanboy (Or i am? :D) but honestly Mamutu is the only one that is updated every day a few times (Whitelist, Rules) and is currently being developed further. :thumb: :D

    It's wreaked havoc on my computer lately too. Plus it has to be restarted every nightly update. But last night's mess was probably the last straw for me.

    One of the biggest disappointments I've had regarding this forum is this software no longer being developed.

    Well at least it's working perfectly on the other machine :thumb:
    I wonder why you're having so much trouble with Mamutu xD

    I don't know why the Mamutu stand alone causes problems but I have no problems with Emsi. I wonder if the builds and release dates of updates are the same for both (Mamutu vs. Emsi 'Guard'). It seems like I have problems right after a Mamutu update, so I wonder if the releases for Mamutu are earlier and not as tested for stability as the Guard releases? Beats me.

    System Safety Monitor was an HIPS, definitely.

    Today i test it in a virtual machine, it blocked a few zero day malware (from malc0de) it is light but i don't know if they qontinue to support it. I think it is abandonware.. last version update was at the early 2011.
