    You can't compare the two, they do different things. RegDefend could be compared to RegProtect from DCS, as they both work with the registry. Process Guard would be more appropriately compared to AppDefend.

    Hi Brother Esau,

    The short answer is that RegDefend is a rules-based registry firewall. RegDefend's rules describe what a given process can and cannot do to the registry (read values and keys, create and modify keys, set and delete values) once you have allowed it to execute via PG.

    Hi Brother Esau, welcome to Wilders.

    As your thread was not a support issue and in fact it is a comparison, I have moved it here where it should receive better attention.

    Cheers :D
