Interesting that WinPatrol is shown on that Wilders' list as "Classical lightweight HIPS". Granted, WinPatrol has long used HIPS, but I always think of it as a system monitor.

If you are looking for top security I personally recommend

- KIS 2010
- NIS 2010
-Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus

I personally like KIS, it has a two way firewall, HIPS, antivirus and a global sandbox feature. The sandbox alone can pretty well protect you while surfing.

I use KIS 2010 on my Windows 7 32 bit system and
Spyware Doctor with AntiVirus under Windows 7 x64.

I use to have PrevX 3, but recently removed it cause of
all the false positives

I've heard that from a few people but personally, on my system, I've been running it nor for a couple of months and have never had a single false positive. Strange how it seems to effect some people but not others. What was it finding and reporting? Just curious.

Good Blu-Ray Software?
I recently got a new Blu-Ray drive for my PC, but found that software used to play said movies seems to be a rarity. The only ones I can find seem to cost $50 to $100, which is definitely an amount I don't want to spend. Does anyone know of any good (possibly free) software that plays Blu-Ray...
