    I can't really answer the technical question about how they each work, but yes you can use both. I am, with no problems.

    I also have NOD32, BOCLEAN, Ad-Aware and a Linksys router and they all work well together. RegDefend would be a good addition. Plus, Jason does a great job of supporting and responding to any problems that may come up and brought to his attention by us in this forum. :)

    As far as register protection is concerned, I can tell they don't work the same way, based on my experience using both.

    For example, each time I run MS Word, it automtically lunch a process ctfmon.exe, and the entry is added to the startup list. In this case, Prevx had never alerted me, and Regdefend do.

    Another example, is when using Hijackthis to remove an entry from the startup list, I have never been alerted by Prevx, but Regdefend do.

    So, Prevx and Regdefend do protect diffrently, may be someone can explain why these two above scenario do happen, eventhough Prevx and Regdefend protect the same registry entry.

    As a short notice, when I tested the two scenarios mentionned above. it has been done with Regdefend and Prevx not installed side by side, means each software has been tested separately.

    Interesting, my impression is that Prevx and Regdefend are much more similar than other registry watchers, because both use non-polling methods.

    In fact , Jason seems to have tested Prevx pretty extensively.

    Hi,

    RegDefend is one of my top three along with KAV 4.5 and ProcessGuard. I highly recommend all of these programs. ProcessGuard and RegDefend in particular for their proactive protection and simplicity of installation and use.

    I never got SnS to work on my machine so I cannot comment on it other than I always felt it was more of a "black box" in the way it works. There us apparently a conflict with ZoneAlarm. What bothered me was that when I re-started after installation, I received a message from ProcessGuard that ZoneAlarm had changed. I never received a clear answer as to why this was so, other than there was some conflict.

    RegDefend, as a counter-example, is very simple to understand and install. Because RegDefend is simple to understand (assuming that you understand the alerts), it is easier to develop a layered defense that works alongside of it. Also, simplicity usually means less maintenance issues and more stability. Ditto for ProcessGuard.
