    It mimics some of the benefits of Vista (Address Space Layout Randomisation), on XP machines. Combined with Comodo Memory FireWall you should have a good protection against all sorts of overflow attacks.

    Be awre that WehnTrust can cause system hangups on XP SP3, so I am surprised it still works on your test rig (what OS are you using?)

    Another thing to be aware of if you haven't already noticed is that WehnTrust will create a subfolder under either %SystemRoot% or %SystemRoot%\system32 (I forget which one) called RANDCACHE. It then fills this folder with a copy of every executable you run, so if you have a smaller partition with Windows on it and a larger one with all of your applications and data, you may find yourself running low on free space.
