    I need someone to recommend me GesWall or DefenseWall HIPS (newest versions of both programs), what are differences and weak points of both programs, and do I need antivirus or anti-malware programs with either GesWall or DefenseWall HIPS?
    What are your experiences?
    Thanks to all.

    they're both great apps.

    one advantage DW has over GW is that it is actively being developed.
    i don't think you need a real-time AV with either of them.
    just scan the few odds download with either MBAM or Hitman Pro.

    make sure you have an imaging plan.
    being able to restore a clean image should be at the very top of the list of any malware fighters. :)

    Have never tried Geswall, but have been a happy user of DefenseWall for the past year. Great protection and great support.

    Personally if I had to choose one I would choose DefenseWall. Great and simple to use product last time I used it. Plus very good tech support if needed.
