    Downloaded Process Guard free and find it to be very impressive.
    My question to those more experienced is this:
    I run KIS6, BOClean and WinPatrol Plus.
    Also have SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard.
    With the protection I already have is it redundant to run Process Guard or a welcome addition?
    Your opinions are appreciated.
    Thanks,Dan

    if u use KIS' proactive defense, PG may not be needed.

    however, im not very familiar with proactive defense so i could be wrong.

    Based on your arsenal I would say the free version of Process Guard would add little if anything to your protection except another icon. The Pro version would be a whole different story.

    The Pro version would be worth it in your opinion?
    Thanks for the reponses.

    Yes. The full version will complement KIS ProActive Defense. PG doesn't protect the registry while ProActive Defense does. The two work great together for me and I think both are needed.

    The free version has been great so far. Works very well with all my other software. Don't even know it's there.
    Based on what I read, my experience with it so far and the opinions of those who responded here, I will try the pro version.
    Thank you, Dan

    The additional protections it offers like DLL and Rootkit blocking make it well worth having. Plus the license is a one time purchase with upgrades included. Not a bad deal in the age we live in...:eek: :D
