    Changed set up to Sandboxie (paid) with MBAM on demand. With Sandboxie tweaked just right (thanks Sully!) I don't think you need much else.

    To tell you the truth, I still don´t know what´s so awesome about AppGuard? Compared to Sandboxie, SpyShelter and Comodo, what does it offer more?

    About Emsisoft, I´ve tested the HIPS years ago, when it was called Mamutu (standalone app) and I wasn´t exactly impressed, it missed lots of things. :cautious:

  9. Most intrusion follow this flow of events (there is heaps of info on the Internet)

    1. Memory breach to execute arbitrary code and download executable code in non-uac protected folders => AppGuard offers memory protection
    2. Execute the downloaded code to ...=> Appguard offers deny execute of user space
    3. Survive re-boot or gain high integrity level status => Appguard keeps protected aps in a LUA box

    So with a "less is more" approach focus on three area's it is as effective as HIPS hooking/intercepting everything. Smart application IMO
     
  10. Windows Ultimate 7 (x86) behind router with NAS

    Safe Admin
    1. Windows Firewall also blocking outbound
    2. Deny download of executables within IE-zone
    3. Running browser and add-ons in protected mode
    4. Disabled riskware services and user autostart entries
    5. Scripting software secured with group policy restrictions
    6. Deny execute for basic user outside UAC protected folders
    7. Deny elevation/installation of unsigned executables/drivers

    I will see how this new install fares. Targeted hacking attempts on some adult models chat room and realted is not something a normal PC user gets. Was some dutch guy leading the pack, but I will not say no more. I propably had some weakness with Java but lets just say that no one can survive with continuing attacks.

    It is not right what they were doing!

    I just hope This AppGuard guards better against crackers. I did not also had a 2 way firewall protection, but I never installed much, so not sure if that got me hacked

    they just need your ip address and inject the code into your system and you are hack,very bad very bad situation:thumbd: they find a weak point or outdated software to start doing the damage,that's when programs like appguard comes to the rescue

    WSA and 2 engines at VT flag the Superbird browser site as malicious. Will add more if I find out anything. (Posted using the Superbird browser :eek: )
    edit: Didn't find out much, removed Superbird anyway since there's not much info on it.

    Good Afternoon! Since I have roughly forty days left on my Bitdefender I.S.2014 License I reinstalled and also re-installed AppGuard...this should take me to the Middle of next month when I enter the new nine month free license for Bitdefender...courtesy of Softpedia...and Bitdefender...Bitdefender and AppGuard are definitely a Powerful one two punch. Sincerely...Securon

    I use it as on-demand disabling the realtime protection. It's very effective and doesn't slowdown that way.:thumb:
