    "Caution - Apparently crashed my Win 7 32-bit O/S"

    May 5, 2010  |   By MossyRock

    Version: DefenseWall HIPS 2.45

    Pros

    Seemed to be good in theory

    Cons

    It appears to have hosed my O/S to the point of needing a bare-metal restore.

    Summary

    My system has been rock solid and stable since I built it. I installed DefenseWall five days ago and noticed, little by little, that there were delays, intermittent Internet connectivity issues, etc., which I considered normal since a HIPS system does isolate resources on-the-fly and stops processes deemed to be malicious. Nothing out of the ordinary was appearing in DefenseWall's logs, except that it was not allowing JQSNOTIFY to work despite my best efforts to mark the process as safe.

    Well, this morning I got a BSOD (didn't catch the complete error since my system rebooted on its own - I'll fix that for next time) and when Win 7 came back up it was hosed beyond belief. I restored an image of the system from Windows Home Server backup prior to installation of DefenseWall and so far everything is normal.

    I can't prove that DefenseWall did this, but then again there was no malware and my system has never had any sort of catastrophic failure.

    If you want to run DefenseWall on Windows 7, I recommend that you run it on a sandbox machine for several weeks and throw normal user activities at it before you put it into production.

    "HIPS WAS MORE DEADLY THAN A VIRUS on my laptop!"

    April 6, 2010  |   By qxx

    Version: DefenseWall HIPS 2.45

    Pros

    Small footprint, great idea on paper
    It seems to be a nice antivrus software if you can ever get it installed without it destroying all your files and freezing up your computer.
    It's like a box of chocolates...I never knew what to expect.

    Cons

    This software displayed the potential to totally wreck my laptop. It conflicted with some popular antivirus software on my laptop.
    I had to send my laptop to a repair shop...Had to reprogram windows all over from the git' go!

    Summary

    1) This program did not install to the latest update
    2) This program did not uninstall fully
    3) This program caused massive, thorough, and extensive damage to my files and applications "in my view" as best as I could tell.
    4) Because of item 3) I had to take my laptop to a computer repair shop. After working on it for three days with debugging software he said he would have to wipe out Windows totally and reinstall my Window XP home edition.
    5) This program conflicts with several popular antivirus software causing my computer to freeze up, BSD, and more.

    "THIS IS MY FRONT LINE DEFENSE !!!!!"

    December 28, 2009  |   By tthompson1013

    Version: DefenseWall HIPS 2.45

    Pros

    Treats all online activity as untrusted, like Sandboxie. It has a better interface than that of Sandboxie and it is a better fit for me! It is so user friendly and light on resources. and yet adds maximum protection (99%)

    Cons

    It is only 99% effective! just kidding, none!

    Summary

    As long as I surf the web I need Defense Wall by my side. I can't wait for a virus to come a knocking. I want to use to STOP ATTACK BUTTON! Malware is totally helpless and unable to change your registry, because it is sandboxed. You can right click and make a download TRUSTED.If it turns out to be infected,then its a good idea to have an AV program to catch it! I highly recommend this program
