    I want to add an anti-execution HIPS on my system that is free and does not slow the system. I have already tried PG free and AntiHook. Is there still another option available? Any suggestion?
    I am also thinking to try Neoava guard. Can anybody tell me how we can compare Neova guard with System Safety Monitor or PG?

    Appdefend is techically able to be used free since it is a beta. you just have to deal with the occasional popup asking you for money.

    Coreforce also is a free HIPS(actually it is a lot more)

    Kerio 4 also has anti-executable built into it.

    I may think of some more later, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

    Cheers,

    I'm using the free beta AppDefend and I'm delighted with it!

    I don't notice any kind of slowdown on my system, and works very.

    Waiting for the next version...

    appdefend doesnt have a learning mode like PG, but it does offer flexibility in that u can set each of the protections to allow, block, or prompt.

    as for neova guard, it is ok. its still beta and there hasnt been any new builds. it offers quite a lot of protection but the GUI and prompt could use a lil work.

    If you're running XP Pro, you could try the built in Software Restriction Policy. It's not particularly user friendly but it's free and doesn't slow the system.

    I prefer the style of AD, because is more flexible, have more features and use less resources.

    I also don't like to have a lot of annoying popups, so I diasbled the Execution, Start Applications and Self Termination features...

    AD = AppDefend ;)

    You can disable the RegDefend like I did...
    After the trial period, you will have the free version...
    Remember that is still in beta stage, and Jason are working hard to improve it a lot...

    On the final version, there will be a free version, but I don't know what features will have...

    Hello,
    Why not try AntiHook 2.5? It's free. And definitely comparable to PG.
    Mrk

    Is AntiHook still developing? I remember there was a long wait for a new version, but nothing as of yet, as far as I know...

    I have used it and it seems good but I feel as compared to AppDefend, it makes the system a bit slow. Also it has conflict with sandboxie. Moreover u can,t disable or enable it without rebooting.

    The option start "AppDefend with windows start up" is not working on my system. Is this a known beta bug?
    Also frequent pop up with a beta software is so annoying. Is there any way to get rid of it( except for paying money)?

    I am using it or the last few days and still dealing with pop ups that will die gradually. It,s too early to say anything. At the moment I can just say few things,
    1- I did not notice any slowdown or drag on system by it.
    2- It is unable to accept the settings "Restart With Windows Restart"
    3- GUI is clean but colors need much improvement, to me their sarkm colors put starin on eyes
    4- Frequent pop up forcces u to buy it, even that I am still usnig the 15 days trial period, that,s really not good at all( pop up can be acceptable if occassional but frquent pop up just too bad for me even with free programmes-- and the fact that it is still beta and even the trial of beta version, its,s really crazy and rather insane practice to insert so many pop ups here at this stage. U are punished to use it free.
