That's cheating! But effective.  :)

Having HIPS is a good thing.

Not true..........that because you haven't got used to the software and how to understand how it works, it like you're driving you're very first car when you're a teenager going out on a blind date ;)

HIPS is really a good thing.... But it not recommended for novice users....

I heard many people saying that it is the future of protection against zero day threats.....
