    Hi LJM & welcome, The trial version includes Process Guard's checksum utility which on it's own is a very useful security tool. Basically it checks every .exe that is started, if for some reason that .exe is changed in any way you will be informed and asked if you wish to allow it to run or block etc.

    Having one process in the protected list is basically so that you can test Process Guards compatibility with your particular set up.
    So selecting one of your security apps main processes and testing against it should show up any issues that your PC has with Process Guard.

    Process Guard's logging abilities are also very useful

    The licensed version allows you protect as many programs as you elect to install in it. The trial version is a teaser/test so you can make an evaluation and hopefully end up purchasing the licensed version. :eek: Which by the way works very well. ;)

    LJM, It is one of the most powerful security apps out there with unique protection abilities. It would be the LAST security app I would remove given a choice. :)

    Have fun!

    Have to totally agree. Since so many threats now are things you have to do like download and click on something, the neat thing about Process Guard is it also protects you from yourself. Even if you do download and try and run a nasty Process Guard is going to make it very hard for it to hurt you.

    Process Guard is great. :cool:
    It takes a little configuration, but then so does most every worthwile security app.
    Like everything else, it could use a little improvement here and there (the experimental close message handling being one). I have confidence that DCS will fix these minor issues.
    I think it is a powerful shield that can help defend us from the worst of the worst: rootkits.
    Try out the free version, but you will be buying it soon! :D
