Had EQSecure for some time, v3.41 (Alcyon Ruleset) and for the most part been very content. However of late the program appeared to start forgetting rules and re-prompting again for authorisation for trusted programs which started to frustrate me. So I exported the rules, archived the installation folder and installed RTDefender (used to have ProSecurity 1.30 free, some time ago). Have to say that this offering, albeit now somewhat defunct, is excellent. A rules wizard generator to set you up from scratch, ideal for novices, and then total lockdown with very very few pop-ups. Not delved deeply into it as yet as currently working on a dual boot with Linspire. How do the other advocates of HIPS software find this package, EASTER, bellagamin, etc.? Worked out that if I browse using my Linux partition, the risk of infection(s) is reduced to virtually nil. No need for sandboxing, AV's and HIPS etc.! The future's good, the future's a 'Penguin'!!!
