https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=177902 I believe SSM and other HIPS are great applications, and offer great protection. But that is if you know how to use it. I dont have the knowledge required to use SSM. But I did trial it. Perhaps I should not have. I am not saying SSM caused my problems, but see SSM and my lack of knowledge to use it as one possibility among others. Has anyone had serious/similar problems after using SSM? Has anyone had similar problems after using Cyberhawk or Ccleaner? Or DSA?
