Will having Comodo's Defense+ (HIPS) feature enabled, cause any conflicts with Threatfire, which is behavioral based?

I tried the two together in the past without conflict.

Defense+ would alert before the threat hit your hard drive whereas Threatfire would see the behaviour afterwards. Its use would be if you made a mistake and allowed something you should have blocked. That is why many of us ran the old Comodo Firewall with Defense+ without any antivirus without problems.

Thanks :thumbsup: I may uninstall ThreatFire though, it uses resources (not many, but I need as much as I can get) and I am a safe browser and have a solid AV (avast!) and Firewall (Comodo)

For what it's worth.

Alwil, has changed their rather ambiguous statement about Avast's new behavior shield to this:

Behavior Shield

Monitors activity on your computer using a number of sensors (file system, registry and network based) and reports/blocks any suspicious behavior.

Behavioral Honeypots

avast! sensors identify and monitor suspicious file activity on selected computers, automatically submitting files to the Virus Lab for additional analysis.
