    Thanks AvinashR. It is not much popular but is very strong and shows good results in all tests. Currently, it is only product, which uses Whitelist + Blacklist approach.

    I think BluePoint Security is underrated. I myself have overlooked it thus far, but not anymore. I'll test it soon.

    Thanks.

    I had reservations when I started using BluePoint Security 2010. Now I wouldn't consider using anything else and I don't know how anything could run any lighter, a set and forget in the truest sense.

    Have you test it to see if produces many FP's?
    Or any feedback about the FP's?

    On my system I have had two f.p. related to printer /scanner. I have not reported them and should have, I use the option to ignore and forget it.Other than that never a f.p. I am just a average computer user , not near the computer knowledge of all of you.I would be interested in your opinion if some of you decide to give it a serious work.My wife and two small boys don't know it is there and when I check with something else it is still clean. That's all that counts here. Thanks

    It seems overpriced (compared with Avira-Premium or BitDefender, for examples). However, I wish them well.

    That was my thought too. I used BPS for a while and it seemed to work well.

    I had not tried this software yet. Played around with it this weekend on one machine. I am pretty much standing in amazement. From my little testing it got everything.:eek:

    Going do some more testing before I say anymore. But wow.:thumb:

    This and a firewall is as good as it gets , in my opinion.

    It is based on white-listing (as far as I know), so it must block every malware you throw at it, unless for some strange reason it is white-listed.

    Yes, BPS is whitelist-based. It is effective because it BLOCKS every software that is not on its whitelist.

    Its whitelist seems to be much less than adequate at present. When I gave BPS a trial, it blocked virtually everything I tried to do, and in the process "broke" most of the processes so that I had to restart them. It even blocked the updates for my security applications.

    No wonder BPS is effective at blocking malware. It is effective at blocking just about everything -- both good apps and bad apps. Most of my software is fairly well-known, popular stuff. Even so, most of them were not on the BPS whitelist so my trial of BPS was a very frustrating experience.

    BPS has promise, but is badly in need of a learning mode. Otherwise, if you undertake serious work, & if BPS is unfamiliar with the programs you are using (which is likely), then your productivity will go waaay down!

    In other words, if you decide to trial BPS, I suggest you do so when you haven't much else to do and just want to kill some time. If you finally get BPS familiar with your particular software, then (IMO) it will offer very good protection -- which is pretty much true of any & all *antiexecutable-type* security software.

    Sounds like the same reasons everyone hates on CIS.

    I agree. The last time I tested it, the program marked a couple of well-known files as 'unknown'. I then had the choice to allow or deny. One of the files was part of Microsoft Works.

    I don't recall having to use the .NET Framework last time I installed it. Have they changed the system requirements?
