    HIPS is far more powerful if you know how to use it. It requires study and practice to learn HIPS at a higher level.

    Thanks bro. Its a great pleasure to reply to your post and getting good knowledge from you :cool:(y)
    You said that: EmsiSoft is on the right track too, Eset just has a few more
    Could you specify what feature you are talking about regarding this: Eset just has a few more?
    What ESET features you liked the most that made you to say that where they are not exist in EAM?

    Yes, you can if you use it in interactive mode plus some custom rules like the one I gave you.
    There are more options to tweak(like alert for modifying startup) but that one(i mean start new application) ask about almost all executable file not only EXE :)
    Eset advantages=first its free and the second is Hips in Eset will alert for child process (if you use it in interactive mode)
    VS adavantages=AI which does not exist in Eset :)

    You need to install Eset and find yourself.
    There are many settings and features that you can work with them.
    For me, it took almost 45 DAYS to learn Eset hips because it's complicated and it has 4 modes but if you learn it its strong and comparable to SpyShelter Premium (because I used both and compare the alerts they gave me:p) same alerts can generate by Eset(if you tweak it with ask rules)

    Mainly those ESET IS's FW + HIPS + network protection features are not available in EAM......

    and ESET has the best protection against deceptors, super low FPs, lightweight etc (y)

    Wow. Thanks a ton.
    First, What deceptors exactly are? please
    Second, after all those great features you mentioned from above.

    Questions:
    1. Do you recommend ESET IS over EAM for a user at a very high level of IT security knowledge?
    if Yes then
    2. Is there any EAM Behavior Blocker alternative feature in ESET IS coz I don't want to lose EAM BB feature anyway.
    3. If we tweak HIPS in ESET IS like our respected member @
    Sunshine-boy shared then Do you think it would be a replaceable for BB in EAM? Thanks for answering bro (y)

    Deceptors are PUP and adware

    1. Depends if you want a strong firewall + HIPS + network protection (provided you tweaked them) + those PROS mentioned earlier then you go for ESET. EAM sits on top of default Windows FW, easy to use and comes with an excellent BB

    2. & 3. Your answers are here

    Behavior Blocker

    What are Heuristics?

    What is the Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) in ESET Windows home products?

    I have installed ESET IS + EAM, when EAM try to quarantine a detected threat ESET shows a message That Emsisoft Protection Service tries to access an 'x' file and its blocked ( X - is the threat which both AV's detected as a threat). ESET never let EAM quarantine anything.That means they conflict when there is a malware!

    Tahst means you lost your mind:D
    You can exclude Emsisoft for Eset Hips and you will not get any alert anymore! but why would you do that? xd what is this config?

    Obvious and expected, it is why we don't recommend to use 2 full AV together.

    making exclusions won't 100% assure that there is no underlying issues.
