    There is no way to get the paid version of ProcessGuard anymore?

    I agree provided you use Comodo's new sandbox feature. With the sandbox enabled, you need only worry about moving files from "My Pending Files" to "My Own Safe Files." I also expanded the sandbox pop-up to show the option to run the program in question outside the sandbox. Those looking to answer a million questions would disable the sandbox.

    And has it been your experience that the Comodo sandbox works well?
    perhaps you are that one in a thousand.

    respect rat

    So if what Im understanding is right, the New HIPS are like Mamutu, Immunet, and ThreatFire, and they are behavior blockers, and require much less knowledge from the user, but are essentially doing the same thing. They have preset rules and cloud/community of users making decisions on the pop-ups. PrevRX is similar, forgot to add them.

    Is this correct?

    ProcessGuard
    AppDefend/RegDefend
    Prosecurity/Real-Time Defender
    System Safety Monitor
    EQSecure
    Malware Defender

    Behavior blockers are behavior blockers, not new HIPS.
    System Safety Monitor, ProSecurity/Real-Time Defender, EQSecure or Malware Defender are HIPS.

    But HIPS and behavior blockers are just labels.
    CastleCopsWiki told us, that there are smart expert based behavior blockers (most often labeled as 'behavior blockers') and policy based behavior blockers (most often labeled as 'HIPS').

    Cheers

    Thanks for the to the point response. I think I should focus on the Smart Expert Based Behavior Blockers. What would comprise a list of these? The ones I mentioned?

    Some of the Firewalls have integrated HIPS right, Like Comodo with D+, PrivateFireWall with Dynamic Security Agent (or is that PCTools), Online Armor, as 3 examples. Correct?

    Yes, ThreatFire, Dynamic Security Agent, Mamutu, AVG Identity Protection etc.

    Again yes. You can add PC Tools Firewall, Outpost, ZoneAlarm and Jetico as well.
    PrivateFireWall has a HIPS and some (or all?) parts of Dynamic Security Agent integrated.
    For me these programs are 'Firewall/HIPS combos', but that's just my own label.

    Cheers

    HIPS are something more than BB: HIPS work is monitoring and taking the control of all the system and all happens in.

    Thank you much subset, youve been a great help to me, in understanding the security landscape, and what direction I want to take.

    Yes http://diamondcs.com.au/processguard is the correct www. Unfortunately they had some "err" problems a few years ago. Do a search on here and read up on it/them.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with ProcessGuard itself though, i use it. And someone, no names mentioned but you know who you are :thumb: very recently let me have their key to turn my free version into full.

    I´m still very satisfied with "old" HIPS like SSM Pro and Neoava Guard. Maybe they are lacking some features, but in general they will probably still protect me against 95% of all attacks. Sure, I would like some more protection (don´t we all? :D ) but I also have to consider stuff like ease of use, GUI, and stability. And most other HIPS fail miserably when it comes to this IMO.

    LOL, I know what you mean, I checked it out like 2 years ago, and I said to myself, never again! o_O

    Is the full version of PG really better than the free? Is it worth the money?

    Full gives you global hooks, physical memory and two other things that I can't remember. yeah I would say that it is worth it.

    Ive decided to go with an Expert Intelligent HIPS, instead of that based on ignorant user input.

    Now I am testing some Firewalls and Anti Malware/Virus programs to see how they differ from each other with all the extras including Classical HIPS that they have integrated in them.

    Im still interested in checking out DefenseWall and DriveSentry and exploring anti executables.

    It seems to me that some of these Firewalls and Anti Virus programs are becoming jacks of all trades, or at least multiple trades.
