    Behavior Guard – add-on for Spyware Doctor:
    Behavior Guard provides leading edge protection from zero-day (never seen before) threats, built on the award-winning ThreatFire technology.

    Behavior Guard is designed to pro-actively defend your computer against both known and unknown threats solely by detecting their malicious behavior. Traditional antivirus software cannot do this and only offers reactive protection, meaning it can only protect you from new threats after the threat has been discovered and new signatures to protect against it are developed, tested, and then released for download. Behavior Guard does not rely on signatures to protect you; instead, it uses intelligent behavioral analysis to proactively hunt down and paralyze activities or behaviors that might compromise the security of your computer.

    Umm... isn't Behavior Guard just another name for PCTools Threatfire?

    The BG in PCT AV/AS used to be a little different than Threatfire (Cyberhawk) but the 2010 line of products was supposed to homogenize the two. Whether that was done or not I am not sure.

    As a side note, it would be interesting to see today's version of Threatfire tested alongside the last version of Cyberhawk just to see the results.
