    Would PG3.0 Free give you the same protection as SSM?

    I don't use ssm but PG 3.0 will give you a very high level of protection.

    Thanks Big C. Remember, I'm talking about the free version. It seems to protect all processes and the version before only protected one.

    Hi jon_fl :), here are the differences from Free vs Full version for ProcessGuard v3.000 -

    Code:
    COMPARISON OVERVIEW 
    
     FREE   FULL     FEATURE
      x      x       Control application execution
      x      x       Protect applications from unwanted termination
      x      x       Protect applications from unwanted modification & injection
      x      x       Protect applications from unwanted viewing
             x       Block new and changed programs
             x       Protect physical memory (prevent operating system   vulnerabilities)
             x       Block Global Hooks (stops keyloggers and password stealers)
             x       Block unwanted driver/service installation (stops rootkit trojans)
             x       Block registry DLL injection (stops spyware such as CoolWebSearch)
             x       Secure Message Handling (protects applications from messages)
             x       Interface Lock (protects from malicious changes and other users)
             x       FREE technical support

    Thanks. With the improvement of PG3.0 Free, would the Free version be equal to SSM? I'll probably get the full version anyway. Just wondering for now.

    SSM from a technical point of view has more "security features" than the FREE version of ProcessGuard v3.000. However I'll leave it up to the end user to decide which program is best for them when taking everything into account (interface, ease of use, stability, etc) .

    no, if you would be able to combine pg2free and pg3free you would nearly have pg3full, then it could be better then ssm..

    I Tested ssm, very unstable in my opinion, no real Service / Rootkit security only notification. Good hooking engine against keyloggers, but it does not work with PrevX and it leads to buffer overflows when used with incompatible software.. ssm is really not by far that stable like process guard is!

    Beside a perfect team if you are unable to buy pg3full because of privacy reasons or unability to find a payment method: use pg3free + snoopfree (=Hook Protection) + block all rights of HKeyLocalMachine/System/Services (=Rootkit Protection), don´t forget to re-add the rights before shutdown.

    Actually the favourite ROOTKIT installation method doesn't need registry access so you will need a bit more than registry blocking to block the majority of rootkits. :)

    Do you mean Ring3 Rootkits? I think they are not effective because I tested one that was only temporary active as long as the pc did not reboot.

    Another thing is most guys outthere only use hxdef, because this is the only one that is really popular, so who except security specialist and insiders should know about other methods
