OK I'll try to spit this out coherently. First off, please only people knowledgeable with PG need reply. I have set to go on Windows startup: ProcessGuard 3.2 Full, NOD32, Sygate pf (last freeware version) & Trend Micro Anti-Spyware. Passive protection: Bugoff, SpywareBlaster, xp-AntiSpy, ScriTrap, Harden-It, SocketLock & Windows Worms Doors Cleaner. As stated I have PG 3.2 full. Under the Protection Settings, Protection Enabled & Execution Protection are checked. Unchecked are Auto Block new and changed applications & Learning Mode. Under Global Protection Options all 4 options are checked. For Trend Micro Anti-Spyware (TMAS) the realtime protection scheme (called Venus Spy Trap) there are 11 options to enable or disable. They are: Monitor Memory for Privacy Threats Check Programs before they execute Monitor Web Browser Security Settings Monitor Startup Areas Monitor Host File Changes Monitor Browser Plugins Monitor ActiveX/Downloaded Program Files Monitor Windows Shell Settings Monitor Windows Services Monitor Windows Security Policy Settings Monitor Layered Service Providers I have 4/11 options enabled. They are Monitor Memory for Privacy Threats, Monitor Windows Services, Monitor Windows Security Policy Settings & Monitor Layered Service Providers. Given my setup & that I believe PG covers a lot of the 11 realtime protection scheme options of TMAS. I want PG to cover as much as possible & TMAS to cover in realtime as little as possible. Which of the 11 TMAS options should I have enabled that PG doesn't cover? Thanks for reading through this. No alternate AS programs please. I think all other AS program are **** & yes I have tried them. Only people knowledgeable with PG need reply. Thanks again.
