I’m using Spyshelter Free to complement KSC free and control my firewall rules.
Spysheltter free have 2 modules:
System protection and Firewall.
I don’t expect any incompatibilities with the firewall module, but should I disable the system protection? Kaspersky already covers it? I’m trying to complement the lack of app control feature from KSC fre.
According to Spyshelter help, system protection is described as:
Your computer has important system areas which, when harmed, can cause overall system instability. These areas include the Windows Operating Registry and the physical RAM.
SpyShelter System Defense Module is a proactive component that protects important system areas against any malicious software that might harm your system. As it protects your system, it also prevents any malicious applications from injecting malicious codes [DLL injections] into trusted components.
The SpyShelter System Defense is equipped with anti-action methods to prevent this from happening. In addition, it blocks malicious applications that use Kernel Driver Loading: these infect the system by installing code into your computer’s operating system.
