    Do Process Guard and Spyware Guard do much the same thing?

    Hi JerryM, Put simply, ProcessGuard protects your processes from change or termination and also lets you know when any executable tries to run or is changed, depending on your chosen settings.

    SpyWareGuard checks for changes that spyware might make and prevents it installing.

    Both totally different but good at what they do. :D

    Thanks Pilli.
    There are so many programs, and many of them good, that it is difficult to know what to load to the computer. I always am concerned that it will mess something else up. I have done that when I removed one, and it removed something else I needed.

    OK Jerry, If you would like to post the type programs that you use or might use we can probably tell you if there is anything that may cause a proble.

    Hi Pilli,

    I appreciate your offer. I am not sure I can answer the question intelligently with my knowledge. However, I’ll give it a try.

    My computer is a new Dell with W XP Home. Memory is 1 GB.

    I don’t do games or music downloads. Most of the programs I have other than the normal W XP stuff are Bible study programs, and don’t seem to get entangles with other programs. I also have Irfanview. I do not currently transfer photographs to my computer as I do not have a Digital Camera.

    I have for security.
    Bit Defender pay
    Look n Stop pay I disabled the XP SP2 firewall
    Ewido pay
    Adaware
    Spybot
    Spyware Blaster
    Spyware Guard
    CCleaner
    XCleaner

    I am not sure that I answered the question.

    Jerry

    Looking at your list there should be no problems, I am not familiar with your two cleaner programs but I doubt that they run as services so they should be OK.
    Ewido may need a special setting for it's guard component but I do know that other users run with it, so hopefully they may comment.
