Talking about Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS):
A HIPS shield will protect the computer from running unknown applications that can infiltrate by system and/or applications security holes.
The avast VRDB or the full scanning could create a database of executable files in the computer.
With a HIPS shield, any attempt of an unknown application or library (dll) to install in the computer could be monitored.
When the shield cannot detect the action as coming from is a safe application, it will display a warning message.

Alwil, can we expect this for avast 5 ?  ::)

If anti(virus+spyware) could live into Spyware Terminator (http://www.spywareterminator.com//help/FAQ.aspx?faqid=1761&faqmod=SpyTerm_Help5), why not inside avast 5?

yes I agree with you tech ,if Alwil doesn't want to develop an antispyware in the fear that the antivirus might lse its ansome performance and detection abilities just do like spyware terminator that way you are just adding abilities and it won't interfere with the antivirus. Or hire new progrqmers that would only work on the spyware definitions just like for the virus.
Any idea if this is possible vlk ,igor, pavel ??

Thank You

Is this another of the forgotten or neglected threads?
Maybe it needs to be posted in the avast! support forum to merit a response?  :'(
