    I've been reading about various HIPS type products, and I stumbled across this one. I hadn't heard of it until a few days ago, so I believe it is relatively new (?) Anyway, I'm curious if anyone has used it and can give a review. What's it compare to? How effective/light on resources, etc. is it? It looks simple to use....but their web-site could stand some improvement (not a lot of detail regarding exactly what methods the program uses or what it does, and/or how it operates, etc.). It purports to "stop keyloggers, rootkits", etc., but it seems to be a bit of a "Sandbox" type operation. So how does a "Sandbox" type operation stop identity theft from keyloggers, etc.?

    Here is the link, and if this has been discussed here previously, please forgive me, because I haven't seen any (recent) threads.....
