    Hi Westward flow,
    Fingerprint is useful for checking files using MD5 hashes.
    ProcessGuard does this for every .exe that is run and or changed but also does a whole lot more in protectiong running processes at kernel level.
    Please check out the full specifications and capabilities here:

    I've used FingerPrint for a long time. The two complement each other, and really don't overlap each other.

    The main purpose of FingerPrint is to perform hashing, in order to show you which files on a given partition have changed since the last scan. ProcessGuard does some hashing of its own, but for a totally different reason--to make sure that only authorized executables run.
     
  3. Thanks to Pilli for your help.

    Special thanks to Nameless for your very helpful comparison between the two apps. :D
