    Process Guard Free!

    Although it didn't last long before the author went AWOL. ( i think it was in v.3 when i first used it). It was great for a beginner, to enter the mentality of HIPS, because the free version was doing limited things, so it was very comprehensible and it was a very good first approach.

    Today i run it again, in memory of the old days. :'(

    My first HIPS was SSM 1.94, back when Max was developing it and most of the others didn't exist. Neither did the term HIPS. I've tried/used every version since, free and paid. In one form or another, SSM has been on all of my systems for about 5 years now. IMO, it's still one of the best and I will continue to use it.

    The first was Spybot TeaTimer...after SpywareTerminator, Comodo 2.4 (Application Behaviour Settings), Comodo3 with D+, EQSecure...
    In the last year I tried also SSM Pro, Comodo's beta and ProSecurity (new RTD), that I'm using right now...

    WinCleaner AS. It can be set to lock it all down. Still use it. Their AV was -- well words cannot describe that sort of crapola.

    Online Armor v1, that was when it was called a behavior blocker and before it had a firewall, it became v2 then.
    Got so many pop-ups to start off with I wondered what had hit me (or the computer) :D

    Process Guard Free, then purchased the full version and then used that until DCS went west...which was a shame as it was an excellent & ground breaking piece of software.

    :cool:

    BrowserSentinel. Been using it for about 4 years now. Although it's a poller, it's the one app out of all the (very) many I've used in the last four years that has always stayed on my pc. Sadly(for me), it's no longer updated. I just love the amount of coverage it has and how easy it is to use. I've used HIPS that provide better protection, but none that I feel more comfortable using than BrowserSentinel.

    ProcessGuard 3.4 free my first and only installed HIBS outside of software testing.

    Since it performs 100% solid on what i use it for then i have never felt the need to upgrade or change to another brand todate:cool:

    Fortunately and forever thankful my first HIPS was System Safety Monitor

    It introduced a new and more advanced & unique (at the time) method that operated on the premise of "BEFORE THE FACT" rather then "AFTER" and proved that a Windows O/S user could safely and confidently transition completely away from depending solely on AV's and their limitations as well as often their system instabilities. I wrestled like many others with one AV to another before finally settling on AVG6 only to still suffer a system infection.

    SSM ended all that in one fell swoop and i never looked back. HIPS :thumb:
