    I tried to include as many as HIPSs (and behavior blockers) as possible, I may have forgotten some.

    Those who follow any of my posts already know, but for sake of this poll i'll repeat :)

    I use exclusively only 2 HIPS, but only one on any one system, and they are first, EQSEcure 4.0 & the latest Real-Time Defender recently released.

    So far these two are working brilliantly in tandem with my Behavioral Blocker CyberHawk with absolutely 0 issues and 100% stable.

    I believe WinPatrol, et. al, are classified as IDS, not HIPS.
    IDS is after-the-fact detection and reversal.
    Correct me if I err.

    I'm using Norton AntiBot.

    But I'm not sure it can be called a real HIPS, maybe just a behavior blocker ? o_O

    Malware Defender is a new classic HIPS worthy of consideration. I use it on my Vista 32-bit systems and intend to replace ProSecurity with it on my XP 32-bit systems shortly.

    What happened to Geswall?
    It works beautifully on my system.

    I decided to include it since it was included in CastleCop's list of behaviour blockers: http://wiki.castlecops.com/Lists_of_freeware_behavior_blockers
    Sorry, forgot Geswall and Malware Defender. I wish I could edit the poll. :doubt:

    I use Windows Defender with Advanced Membership on as well. Works like a treat. It actually helps you tweak software installs too such as not allowing entries to be added to context menus etc.

    I'm a bit of a HIPS enthusiast. I have licenses for GSS, SSM, PS, DW, DS and OA. However i'm currently only actively using OA and DW.

    Purchased - AD+RD, OA, Outpost, PG, SSM and MD.
    Given - AntiBot.
    Free - DSA, EQSecure and RTD.

    In different snap-shots I test - AD+RD, OA, SSM, MD, EQSecure, AntiBot and RTD.
    Not using PG (but recently tried the update,) Outpost, DSA (because it seems to have a hard job remembering.)

    Currently impressed by EQS and MD.

    All the software listed are behavior blockers.

    Yes they are !
    I meant that NAB is said not to have the sophisticated features the other HIPS may have, but it surely is the same kind of software.

    I only recently have stepped onboard also with Malware Defender, looks like a fine choice and so far the results i found are satisfactory enough that it's gained my trust to purchase it.

    I voted System Safety Monitor, but in my second pc I run Drive Sentry. I understand it's an extended poll :) , but tightly talking I wouldn't put HIPS's functions of KIS or SpywareTerminator or WinPatrol... in the same range than SSM, RTD, AppDef, DS, DW.... :)

    I voted DefenseWall because it works well for our family computers.

    I've used SSM since its early days. Depending on which OS I'm running, I use either the free or paid version. Been very satisfied with it and see no need to even try another.
