    Will it be ok to install spyshelter even if you've already have DefenseWall installed? are the two of them can lived together in harmony and will not quarrel? :rolleyes:

    spyshelter, even their free version is very attractive...:D

    DefenseWall makes around 100 SSDT hooks. Spyshelter makes more than 30 SSDT hooks. They both will slow you down a bit. Surely, you AV also make SSDT hooks. If you can live with it, then go ahead for strongest protection :thumb: Due to slight slowdown, I am still avoiding to install it on my setup.

    I've used both separately but would not use them together. Either one would work fine with a standard decent AV if needed. I've never experienced any slow downs with either product. However, I prefer the unobtrusiveness of DW. I would not hesitate to use DW by itself as it is proven to be rock-solid.

    I use DefenseWall Personal Firewall by its self. Never tried it with SS.

    Use one or the other, no need for two programs that provide similar protection. A good combo that works well together is DefenseWall and Prevx.

    I've used them together with no issue's although SS was too noisy for my liking. I now use Zemana Antilogger with DW with no issue's.

    That is the combination I use, too! Can't say for SS, since I have never tried it.
