    As another HIPS fanatic and user of Windows 8 x64 I might give Outpost Firewall Pro based on your experience so far. Been awhile since I tested it.

    Well i don't how partial you guys are to mix and match setups but for me anyway, 360 Security AV (triple engines) is running exceptionally well alongside Outpost Pro 8.1 FW new release and this is something i never do. It's usually one or the other with LV but thanks to Agnitum and Qihoo i think i just might have discovered the perfect combo i been waiting for a long time.

    And as one who is never really been much of an advocate for any AV'S in the past i find 360 lite enough and strong enough to win my full endorsement of one THAT I LIKE for a change.

    Agnitum's improvement in 8.1 new release finally resolves long standing issues that kept me from sharing in that group of users of it. Well I'm in now.

    Check it out. Outpost's8.1 improvement to it's granular/configurable HIPS is won me over big time. It's also lite as a feather not clumpy like most.

    I don't mind mixing and matching. I never like having my eggs in one basket. ;) I was using CIS6 with some OS hardening then switched to using Comodo Firewall & Windows Defender + OS Hardening. I tried Outpost Firewall briefly a few minutes ago in my VM and I like what I saw so far. It seems much better than previous releases. I also want to add Sandboxie back into the mix as I have a lifetime license for it and have waited for a stable 4.x release.

    I think a lot of former users of OP are going to feel homesick for it again. lol

    I never really dabbled with OutPost very much in the past but was very much aware of it's potential. Well now it seems like Agnitum is finally fully tapping that potential of what OutPost always had but lacked the right fine tuning in the Lab. Well quality control is finally on track.

    I'm freakin' sold on this program now. You always read of user's positive compliments of Outpost and it's HIPS. It's nice to finally experience it for yourself firsthand and with a more improved version then before.

    Been holding my breath a long time looking for a HIPS that has what it takes to replace the abandoned EQSysecure. Outpost is proven up to the task at last.

    LOL. It is good to see Outpost working well. Too bad I don't have a license anymore. I will test it some more to see if I'm willing to invest in a license again.

    My current setup is in my signature. I've been debating adding NVT ERP 2.7.0 (the free version) to my setup for a little bit. Honestly, I feel pretty secure with my current setup but I'm going to quote Lucid on this, "We are overkill artists." What do you guys think?

    Why thank you sir! Your setup is nice and tight too. I messed around with CIS for a bit but liked the simplicity of Sandboxie better. Plus, I already bought a license of it so might as well take advantage of it. I take it you're answer is no then, haha.

    This is my 4th attempt at comodo this time and its running peacefully finally.
    I have learned a clean install is the way to go lol.

    I have thrown a few infidels at it and it stopped them easily so yeah my home defenses are quite adequate lol...:D

    The comodo sandbox does not have the configurations of sandboxie and probably will never have but it seems sturdy enough.

    I hope you remain victorious in your battles my good friend...:D :cool:

    Malware research & testing on windows 8 temporarily on hold while i sort thru and pin down a layout i like that works and is lite. Also got some Beta testing duties coming up.

    So far boils down to Qihoo 360 Security AV
    Outpost Pro 8.1 FW
    Shadow Defender
    Sandboxie
    Scriptrap

    Security Plan A now in place and active.

    Are you waiting for Mac OS X Mavericks to come out, before making the plunge? Or are you going to buy a machine with Mountain Lion, then upgrade to Mavericks?

    Is this it?.....
    http://keir.net/scriptrap.html

    reminds me superficially of AnalogX's script defender of years ago... http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/System/sdefend/Freeware.htm

    ******

    Any-Hooo, given that script trap's developer warns of possible interference with newer security apps'........my question, Easter, is it running well for you on Win 7 x 64 bit?...no interference...is it easy to uninstall?, any other issues?

    -thanks
    cheers,

    in my own opinion the programs that really works in all my systems some in 32 and others in 64 bit systems are:

    Defensewall Hips 32 system:thumb:
    Emsisoft Antimalware32/64 bit systems:thumb:
    NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro 2.7 32/64 bit systems:thumb:
    AppGuard 32/64 bit systems:thumb:
    HitManPro 32/64 bit systems:thumb:
    MalwareBytes Pro 32/64 bit systems:thumb:

    but the best and trouble free is:Emsisoft Antimalware 32/64 bit systems:thumb:
