    With the exception of Online Armor,Prevx1+SSM,is there a HIPS that you would recomend and why? Not really crazy about testing beta's.Any suggestions are welcome.

    If you´re into answering alot of popups I would recommend Ghost Security Suite = Regdefend+Appdefend.. It has excellent registry protection, and the application control catches everything a software tries to do.
    It´s been a while since I ran my Processguard but it was great too because of the control of what a software was allowed to do. Even though Ghost Security Suite has more options (not as man as SSM though).

    Personally I found Processguard less intrusive. Probably because it does not have registry control.
    You only pay for those apps once which is good, but the downside with them are they are not developed (new versions) as fast as one (just my personal view :) ) would like (I believe they are both one man show´s) but that does not mean they are out dated, they still do a good job afaik.

    Thank you for the suggestion Sukarof.I noticed you have Geswall in your sig's is there a reason you would not recomend it or is it not considered a hips?

    Sorry about that. I dont have Geswall installed anymore I just did try it for a while, forgot about my sig (dunno why I put it there in the first place :) ) I dont know much about it so I really cant say anything. It did not behave like the other HIPS, more of a sandbox for browsers and other things that connected the net.
    But there are others here that are more educated about Geswall than me, and I am sure they will give a better answer :)

    id also vouch for Ghost Security Suite. its interface is nice and its protection is very configurable.

    Not me. :D I use ProcessGuard and I don't mind its popups at all. I also have KAV 2006 MP version which irritated me so much with a ton more popups (than with earlier betas and the original release version) from ProActive Defense that I finally just turned off PAD entirely. I tried other HIPS a few months ago and SSM was horrible ...constant popups. The others I didn't like at all either for various reasons.

    Those constant popups are a huge plus for me :D

    I like having greater control over every little detail :)

    I guess the saying is true, "One persons garbage is another ones treasure" :p ;)

    If your looking for HIPPS to try, give ProSecurity a go. It's received good reviews here at Wilders.

    Not even one? I think your SSM is broken and you might be hacked. :)

    I only get pop ups for fresh installs or programs not fully allowed yet. Found that ProSecurity gave a lot more when I tried it.

    That means Prosecurity gives you more control.

    If you have less popups it means there are hardcoded rules that are automatically allowing some modules.

    Popups that are expected and/or easy to answer are still popups?

    My ruleset has been finished for better than a year. Nothing unexpected happens. Besides, I run with the UI disconnected, which shuts off all prompts. With the UI disconnected "ask" becomes "deny". To be fair, I will see an alert when I access certain system utilities like regedit and msconfig, but I'm set up that way by choice. They're both blocked with the UI disconnected, which is how SSM should ideally be run.

    Matter of opinion. I found SSM easier to set up and so it gave less pop ups afterwards.

    I agree,

    I lost a bet of my son. He stated he could train SSM free within an hour on the PC of my wife. He did not tell her (he changed something). Ran the PC for a month with user interface disconnected. I challenged him by setting SSM to the tightest safety rules (block all unknown, changes in servicesm processes et cetera).

    The bet was I would buy him the follow up of battlefield 2 when she would come down complaining on something (not working right or whatever). If she would complain he would buy me a bottle. I ended up buying his game.

    Regards

    If you can wait, Comodo will have HIPS in the next version according to the Comodo forum.

    I personally like ProSecurity, as i have contact with the developer, helped supply useful suggestions, ideas and tested for him and from what i have seen, i have complete confidence in the developer to actually and actively care about his product. If you tell him of a problem he will jump on it like a rash until its fixed. Hes working on a few suggestions of mine and bug fixes of other peoples and will release a new build quite soon, i would say within 7 days at a guess maybe less maybe more, we will see.

    Having tried prosecurity hips lately i feel i can highly recommend it. It runs great and has all the bells and whistles you could need. It even has outbound network control which i found excellent.
