    Anyone using these 2 together? The last time I tried, Defense+ drove me crazy with popups for all GeSWall activity.

    Personally I would n´t even dream of using two HIPS-like software together. It´s quite obvious such software that plug in that deep into the system starts to fight for control. I have yet to see any threat that motivates such trouble inviting overkill.

    They are different category in a way- Classical HIPS and Sandbox, but yes conflicts can arise.

    Since there may be conflicts, is one approach more effective than the other and why?

    Both can be equally effective but so far sandboxes have proved to be more secure, trouble free and easier to use.
