    Hi,
    I'm new to this forum.
    And I see alot of people talking about "HIPS".
    What is "HIPS"? Does it stand for something?
    And can you list some software related to "HIPS"?
    Sorry for this lame question.
    But I really want to know.
    Thanks in advance.

    regards
    omegakilo

    In general, HIPS detects unexpected activity on your system and
    asks you to allow or disallow that activity. HIPS will teach you
    much about your system, but I would not recommend it if your
    computer is used by unsupervised novices in your family, as you
    seemed to indicate in your other thread.
