I have AppGuard version 4 so I guess that doesn't protect Chrome. It's upto SpyShelter then to protect Chrome.
I never actually used Appguard 4, but I think you could manually add Chrome to the guarded apps list.
By the way, if you use Windows Defender, and Appguard 4, you might need to make some exceptions in user space, for Defender to work as it should. In recent versions of Windows 10, Defender runs from user space -- ProgramData.

Yikes having problems with spyshelter for Arcgames launcher even when all are allowed. I had to take it off.
You might be able to resolve the problems by going into security settings and decreasing self-protection for better compatibility with 3rd party apps, or by putting your app on the not monitored list.
But in any case, SpyShelter can replace ERP or Voodoo only if you have SpyShelter Firewall version, and you run it in "ask user" mode. Otherwise, it is simply not equal to an anti-exe. To get true HIPS protection, you need SpyShelter Firewall version, in "ask user" mode. Anything less is just not it.

AppGuard and SpyShelter make up for a pretty good and lightweight combo. GlassWire is useful to me since I am using Windows Firewall and can Allow or Deny particular apps to access the Internet. Also it gives a pretty good overview of the connections, the host to where each app is connecting and the total data usage per month(I have a limited 100GB plan/month from college, so it's really useful to me). With these 3 apps, I probably don't need Windows Defender but since most of my friends have some pretty good malware pets in their laptops like autorun worm and sality worm, I keep Defender because we all need to exchange our flash drives while doing group projects and in case of these worms, I don't know if AppGuard and SpyShelter will be able to protect my PC.

I am not sure if Spyshelter and ESET Internet Security is a good idea, because that's two HIPS, which is a potential source of conflict. Ask @ichito if that's a good combo.
Two HIPS at the same time is asking for trouble :) I would rather recommend disable one of them or
- disable only "System protection" module in SS
- exclude whole ESET app folder from protection.

I don't know if it's the HIPS conflicting or something else but when I run SpyShelter the Banking protection in ESET gets broken. So I uninstalled SS. I already have AppGuard and Shadow Defender. So I don't think that SpyShelter is necessary for me.

The problem with disabling HIPS in ESET is that you will also disable other security features of the product.

Im currently using Shadow Defender.

Im looking at what i can combine it with or if thats even needed. (keeping in shadow mode)

Shadow Defender + Hitman Pro.Alert (AV/Keystroke/Webcam protections)
Shadow Defender + VoodooShield (Lighter, full control of everything i run, No AV, no Webcam, Keystroke protections)
Shadow Defender + SpyShelter (No AV, but has HIPS, Webcam, Screengrab, Keystroke protections etc)

Spyshelter is nice, seems to offer the full complimentary features im looking for - but is even more expensive than HMPA & even the pro version of VS.

especially when i already have active licenses for HMPA & VS Pro.......

hmm - decisions.
