    As far as I'm aware there are no other programs like these 2.

    Cheers :D

    thats a shame they could easily put type process guard on a firewallo_O
    And other security companies could make software like spywareblaster. The advantage that a company has is its more than 1 persono_O

    no affence on javacool. Just a thought

    In the case of PG, there is SystemSafetyMonitor.

    Hello Blackspear,

    Know that Prevx has some of the capabilities of the other two.

    Do know something PG, and don't agree with you. Do agree that the paid version of PG has more in the way of guarding applications, is that what your referring to?

    Regards - Charles

    Hi Charles. Process Guard protects at the kernal level, to quote DCS:

    ...Windows processes from attacks by other processes, services, drivers, and other forms of executing code on your system. ProcessGuard also stops applications from executing without the users consent, stops malicious worms and trojans from being executed silently in the background, as well as a variety of other attacks. ProcessGuard even stops most keyloggers and leaktests, and is recognised by many to be the most comprehensive anti-rootkit solution available.

    Whereas Prevx and SSM are more aimed at monitoring changes in the registry.

    Cheers :D

    Ok Blackspear, I'll quote SSM - seems to be more going on than monitoring the registry:

    In respects to Spywareblaster....Spybot's Immunization feature(IE ActiveX, Restricted Sites and Cookie protection)....offers the same function as Spywareblaster. However....Spybot's quantity of entries is well below Spywareblaster....but....the quality is second to none.

    IE-Spyad adds a much longer and more complete list of sites to the restricted zone than either spybot or spywareblaster.

    SpywareBlaster is an excellent 'immunizer'. Some other approaches to 'immunizing' your system:
    - Hosts files
    - IP-blocking lists

    They're free and they definitely help in blocking the bad guys.
