    Hi,

    Will the combo work together? Any conflicts? Compatibility issues? Would it be a good combo?

    Best Wishes,
    Amit

    I have that combination on my system and I think they work very well together.

    DefenseWall has a very fine and strong HIPS, so as long you understand the way it works, it will protect your pc very well.

    Like WSA, DefenseWall also has the abillity to work along side other security.

    For a rather long period now, this combination has prevented that anything nasty has slipped through these two refined programs.

    Edit : DefenseWall only works on 32bit systems - so far.

    One more thing, does WSA work to its full functionality inside Firefox sandboxed by DW? WSA doesn't in a browser sandboxed by sandboxie.

    DW divedes all applications into - trusted and untrusted groups. Your browser is pr. default an untrusted application, therefore every session you do is untrusted and have limited rights.

    Quote " DefenseWall HIPS does not allow "untrusted" processes to break your system's integrity and to break out of the virtual "untrusted processes" area. "
