    Which do you think is better - ProcessGuard Free or SSM Free? I know SSM has more features, but is ProcessGuard just as capable? Which one is better protection? I know SSM has more prompts but are they worth it?

    comparing free versions, SSM offers everything in PG free plus more. thats a given.

    is the additional protection worth it? that is up to the user. PG free might be better for a person new to HIPS whereas SSM is better suited toward advanced users wanting more control.

    Comparing free versions is almost a no contest SSM easily offers better protection

    but ... . the paid version of PG offers alot of protection in a very simple to use format - e.g key logger - the way it blocks global hooks is simple but just works ssm requires more judgement with the dialogues but alsway works

    I have never used the free versions of either app. In both cases, I trialed the non-free. Therefore, I'm a bit OT but here are my views any way...

    Based on kareldjag's tests, PG & SSM both give superb protection.

    With protection being roughly equal, my *selection criteria* boiled down to support, prices, GUI preferences, compatibility with other programs, and similar factors. I concluded that SSM is a bit more stringently maintained than PG, has more staffing to do the job, & has fewer compatibility issues. Therefore, I chose SSM.
