    Which ones have the best information?

    I just loaded ProcessGuard, and am finding its tips very informative. I noticed that WinPatrol Plus (paid) also has good information.

    Do most of them now have online help instead, where you ask questions on a vendor forum?

    Just trying to get a feel for it. I am willing to learn, but you have to start somewhere.

    Im really digging ProcessGuard, BTW. XP Home SP3

    A lot of them swing both ways. Both included help and online forums. Process Guard is a great program although it is no longer in active development. They used to have a forum here but that was shut down a couple years ago.

    Malware Defender gives you alot of information useful for learning about the inner-workings of your pc. There are also several members here with experience using MD with good advice.

    Never thought of it but Winpatrol, although not really a security program per sea, gives you a lot of useful information about what is running on your computer. Also Process Explorer.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I will probably pay up on Winpatrol, I think that has the extra information locked in the Free version.

    Ill check out Malware Defender and Process Explorer.
