    Do I need System Safety Monitor with Online Armor, or is there too much overlap?

    I'm using Windows 98SE, so my selection of intrusion prevention programs is limited.
    My goal is to find a good layered approach that will:

    -Detect/prevent malware from installation
    -Use heuristics (w/ little false positives)
    -Run at kernel level to prevent the growing threat of stealth rootkits
    -And prevent DoS and buffer overflow attacks, (A good firewall maybe?)


    I currently run:
    NOD32
    ZoneAlarm Pro firewall (V.4)
    CounterSpy
    WormGuard
    Port Explorer
    TrojanHunter
    Spy Protector (from Security Task Manager)

    I'm considering adding these:
    Online Armor
    System Safety Monitor
    Spyware Doctor
    Anti-Executable, after I ask Bill Gates for some extra change :rolleyes:

    What do you think?
    Thanks!

    I'm not familiar with SSM but you can get a 30d trial of Online Armor and have a play :)

    Thanks Mike!

    I'll give it a whirl and let you know of any conflicts with SSM.
