    FYI, Norton have done away with adding the year to the title, meaning new versions can be released at any time, not necessarily each year at the same time like what used to happen.

    Also NAV, NIS and N360 are being phased out and being replaced by Norton Security and Norton Security with Backup.

    Good point, but I do believe that in "paranoid mode" it's basically a HIPS, correct? But yes, I was also thinking about Outpost but I read some bad things about it in the latest thread. And I will never install Comodo again, I have always had bad experiences with it. I have never tried Trend Micro, and I'm not into AV's anyway, most of them are bloated and privacy invading. So all in all it doesn't look too good.

    Actually I was referring to your previous testing with Trustport HIPS versus the TrendMicro ref.. As I recall, you thought Trustport HIPS was pretty good.

    Outpost's Suite w/AV is not that great. However, Firewall Pro w/HIPS is still top rated I believe. To early to tell how it runs on WIN 10.

    Paranoid mode doesn't exist anymore in EIS/EAM behavior blocker. They got rid of it in ver. 10. Been a few complaints about that. To bad Emsisoft let Online Armor died. I was hoping someone else would buy it from them. Guess that will not be happening.

    Another possibility is Eset Endpoint Security ver. 6. Functionally it is equal to that of the retail version. However, has features lacking in retail ver. such as full wildcard character support in HIPS rules, etc..

    Moved to Kaspersky Antivirus, unfortunately on Windows 10, I'm having trouble pinning Start Menu items. Searched around the Internet and found a couple of workarounds, (1) logging in/out and (2) restarting the explorer process.

    Good thing MBAE updated to 1.08.1.1044 and fixed conflicts with KAV 16 -- that's one less compatibility issue to think about.

    Any of you experiencing the same issue?

    Turned my D+ back to Clean PC mode on my Win7 Ult. setup and turned UAC back on, (next to highest setting). I've come to find that using Paranoid mode on Win7 is just absolutely absurd... the prompts relentless, because there's so much bloat on that OS running at all times, and things need privileges out the whazoo to function right. I could die of natural causes before I filtered through every single rule for every single thing on a Win7 installation.

    Interesting. I have it set on maximum and rarely get any prompt. Only when I perform maintenance (update software) or change system settings. I usually expect the prompt and until now didn't get one that would surprise me.

    ~ Removed Off Topic Remarks ~ I never posted anything about Trustport. And I didn't know they scrapped this feature in EIS. BTW, I never liked OA because of several reasons. I think I will give Outpost a try.

    I was following the posts on it in the Firewall section. Appears the HIPS only works for 32 bit OS's. They never made it x64 compatible.

    Yeah, I see the 64bit registry key protection. Does it hook 64 bit processes?

    Yes, I believe you're wrong, it would make Agnitum look silly. I believe they were one of the first to make their HIPS work on 64 bit systems.

    In Process explorer, a whole bunch of .exe files show wl_hook.dll and wl_hook64.dll.
    Is there a hook lister such as was a good one in XP called Rootkit Unhooker?
