    okay.... i need some guidance/advice/counseling/or a stiff drink (and i don't drink)!

    the problem: I LUV DynamicSecurityAgent! why is that a problem? because it doesn't work well on my system! this app just trounces everything i throw at it. i am not someone that gets-off on an app passing leak test purely to say it can. but if leak test truly model themselves after real potential exploits/hacks and measure ones security apparatus's ability to thwart those attacks, then DSA is a bleedin hero.

    but it hangs my browser, especially when i need to open an adobe file, noticeably slows browsing and sometimes crashes whatever playmates are sitting in the systray with it. it also fights with and usually beats-up Online Armour (to which i am strongly committed...how can you bail on Mike Nash). i am currently running Online Armour sans HIPS & Antivirus functions, to reduce conflicts.

    i uninstalled DSA once because it was such a bully, but this program is such a solid security app, i found myself at the install switch once again to day! has anyone any experience with this monster? is there anyway to make this beast behave?

    well i think i am past the "i need a drink" crisis, but some perspective still seems to be in order!

    Use the full potential of online armour, try sensitive guard, see review.

    On some machines SG will not load due to misterious reasons. But it is worth the try.

    I don't seem to have the problems you have with DSA, its been running fine on my computer. i did have troubles with private firewall which is the paid version of DSA. Right now dsa is running beautifully alongside nod32.

    i am also running NOD32 ver. 2.71. is DSA your sole HIPS & firewall? what other security apps are you using?
