    Which options of Comodo's HIPS like behavioral features conflict with System Safety Monitor and should be turned off?

    Wouldn't that give me double warning on alerts?

    Not too much I think as SSM has much more advanced monitoring than Comodo. Comodo u can set in very less pop up mode and after it is configured for sometime, u will not get plenty of pop ups. Also Comodo will give only pop ups mainly while some appliaction assessing internet otherwise it is pretty silent while SSm will pop up every now and then until it learns about ur system, then it eill be silent as well unless u after applying some system updates etc. I am just telling my experience with free verrsion of SSM though.

    Comodo and SSM worked well together when I tried them a while ago. You could probably gain some system performance without losing security by disabling some of the application analysis options in Comodo that SSM already covers. That way you have more of a "basic" firewall, with SSM providing the majority of the application behaviour analysis, which it is extremely proficient at doing.

    Thats what I meant, like turning off Component Control and Monitor DLL Injection? But if they work together and not that much conflict, then I might leave them on. Monitor COM\OLE authorization attempts is really noisy too, might turn it off as well.

    I run NOD 32 and Comodo. Presently running Spysweeper, though I would like to ditch it down the road.

    I thought about adding:

    1. SSM and
    2. Sandboxie...Primailry to run Internet Explorer in a Sandbox

    If anyone has tried this combination, I sure would love to know the results.

    Sorry about that. I should have just answered the question :oops: You could probably disable Component Monitoring for a start. But like you said, if leaving everything enabled in Comodo causes no problems, then you could probably leave it that way. That's how I had Comodo when I tried it with SSM and there were no issues to speak of.

    I trialed Sandboxie with SSM for a while. The combo worked fine. Since Sandboxie & SSM have different goals & methods, the combo gives good, non-duplicative 2-layered protection.

    I'm now using an SSM-Cyberhawk combo. Why? Because it's there.:p

    Well I use the combo Geswall (Beta) + System Safety Monitor + Comodo without conflict so far.
