Very nice review of ST. I know that many see this program as old and outdated, but I recently had occasion to see this software's HIPS in action. I had installed this program (with the ClamAV component) on my young niece's computer (I have used it on my machine for years since seeing it recommended on Gizmo's site). When she clicked on a malware link and it tried to install MyWebSearch Toolbar, among others, Spyware Terminator was the ONLY program among Arovax Shield, Avast, Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware that saw the toolbar install and flagged it during the attempted install. The other programs found various parts of the download during requested searches, but none saw the toolbar. This program also found an autodialer and some other type of malware. Oddly, it missed about 12 registry components found by Malwarebytes and 22 (non-registry) spyware components found by SuperAntiSpyware!
