    I still have in my archive the installation file of EdgeGuard Solo...my question is - it can be still usefull or is better to use MBAE which is a bit similar...I think. I started to think about EGS because of new stable release of MBAE that is a bit castrated in comparison to beta version and paid version costs the same as AppGuard...what is strange for me.

    It runs the protected programs in LUA-box, does not work on Windows 7. Interesting for XP owners though.

    If I´m correct, EdgeGuard Solo and AppGuard don´t offer advanced memory protection (against buffer-overflow) so it doesn´t offer the same level of protection as MBAE. However, you might want to wait for the new HitmanPro.Alert v3, it will work the same as MBAE. :)

    Thanks all for reply...currently I'm testing EGS on Vista 32-bit and it works as I expected and wanted - light and silently. I'll plan install it on XP in my wife's laptop to make some restrictions for vulnerable apps and as an additional (to NVT ERP) protections layer . I think it would be a good idea befor new HMPA will want to appear.

    Would be nice to know whether this works on XP in conjunction with Trust-no-Exe
