CFP- Poor Pop up alerts compared with other HIPS? The thraed by underdog inspired me and I tested a special scenario with multiple HIPS. I wanted to see how clear, simple and user friendly are the pop up alerts given by multiple HIPS on a driver/ service instasll. I tried three HIPS: - CFP - EQS - OA I am summarizing my findings here. I may be wrong anywhere as I am just an ordinary user with very limited knowledge. I installed the trial version of virtual cd 9 http://www.virtualcd-online.com/vcd/apps/download/vcddownload.cfm?lg=0 and looked for the pop up alerts generated by HIPS on drivers/ service install. This software install following drivers/ services: 1- VDRV9000.SYS( driver) 2- HH9Help.sys( driver) 3- VC9SecS.exe( service) My observations are as follows: 1- Out of the three HIPS I tried, IMO best alerts are given by EQS. It clearly warned that a driver/ service was being installed. Pop ups were not few but they were not also too numerous to be lost. Look at the pop up alerts by EQS. Not all pop ups are shown, I am showing the relevent alerts only.
