    Looking for advice on XP Hardeners. If you use more than one, or "other" please give details. Thanks!
     
  2. Currently Samurai, which combines hardening features with HIPS. I may wind up switching to SecureIt + HardenIt + Malware Defender, though, on the basis that masters of various trades are better than a jack of all of them.

    I have enough experience to do it myself under registry, group and security policy. There is a lot of that can be tighten up. What you list looks good for those who don't know and to change settings in the registry.

    I use the security templates with a few modifications from NIST and also currently looking the FDCC template/Group Policy settings they have.

    I use WWDC.
    Another similar program that I have used for years is XP AntiSpy.

    Could we consider SRP (Software Restriction Policies) a system hardener?

    None of above but have some experience in applying group policies and security templates to that effect. But I should probably study it more. Maybe one of the above could be an interim step or help me learn more.

    I use xp-Antispy. Its latest version is 100% compatible with my Windows 7 Ultimate x86. PC Tools Registry Mechanic also tweaked my Windows Services and applied some performance registry tweaks as well.

    I voted other. I tweak the XP pro directly, so I know exactly what was done.

    SRP has my vote. It's what I use on two XP machines.
