Default HIPS (Host-based intrusion-prevention system)

Hey everyone, I'm just wondering what HIPS (and on a broarder scale the overall security and optimisation) software you use, if any?

I'm currently testing out DefenseWall 1.73.

Any recommendations?

Currently my security and optimisation set up is this:

AntiVirus: Nod32 2.70.16 - With Anti-Stelth Technology on and all extra settings.
AntiSpyware: Spyware Blaster 3.54, Spy Sweeper 5.2 - All sheilds on.
Firewall: Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0 - Set to Block Most.
HIPS: DefenseWall 1.73 - Set as default.
Other: Diskeeper 10 - Set to automatically defrag when needed. Window Washer 6.0 - Set to erase all junk/temp files every time windows shuts down. TuneUp Utilities 2007 - Set to do a 1 click system maintenance every day at 5:00 pm.

Lol, cool.

Well, I figure, you can never have a computer locked down too tightly... There's always explots.

And it's always good to keep it running smoothly. Especially when you have a crappy CPU like a Celeron.

Do Registry Mechanic and CCleaner pick up more than TuneUp and Window Washer? Spyware Doctor did get rid of something that Spy Sweeper couldn't, but I still prefer Spy Sweeper.

First off I use Microsoft Defender and AVG Antivirus, and at a network level I use a Cisco 831 router with CBAC.

I think you're pretty well set. I would say use spyware doctor as opposed to spysweeper since it seems more stable and doesn't crash a lot but if it's working for you then keep it, they're both great at detecting spyware.
