    You always needs HIPS, without HIPS, you cannot walk! :D

    Kindest regards,

    Just kidding!

    Hey Iron Man,

    I'm using WSA Essentials + PrivateFirewall on all of my systems right now. Although you will see many opinions on this forum, I have found this combination to be very light but powerful. :thumb:

    PrivateFirewall contains a HIPS that seems to complement WSA extremely well. I have never seen the two conflict with each other in either the firewall or HIPS arenas. Layers of protection software; that's what I like...:)

    I agree :thumb: They make a great combo :) Used them together for about a year now (incl WSA pre-release).

    WSA AV with Sandboxie Paid for me. I don't need or even want a traditional HIPS.

    My favorite combination is WSA AV and Defensewall, - man, is that a great HIPS ! :) :thumb:

    The only thing about Defensewall, it works (so fare) only at 32bit systems, becuse of the patch guard in 64 bit systems. :(

    It looks like PF doesn't like WSA too much :D (The snap taken from PF user guide :rolleyes: )
