Personally I think threatfire is a huge resource hog. The last time I used it, it slowed everything down. After I removed it my internet connection was completely screwed up. I had to reformat as I tried everything from reinstalling my wireless card, checking my firewall, attempting to repair the connection and some others. Secunia did the same thing. Although it only seemed to happen when I turned on program monitoring. I recommend WinPatrol for HIPS control. It's lighter and doesn't slow anything down. :)

Whilst I can't say which is better, I can offer only my experience using them both (and I understand they work differently).

I had both Threatfire and Malwarebytes installed on my laptop (Win7 Ultimate x64, Intel Core2Duo 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 7200rpm HDD) alongside MS Security Essentials.

Initially this was fine but recently Threatfire was causing sever slowdowns in all apllications. This could be overcome by suspending Threatfire and the problem would be immediately resolved.

This was repeatable everytime.

I have since removed Threatfire and have no further problems. Has anyone else noticed this?

It's really hard to compare each one as both are good at their work. Since a long time I am using threatfire and it has given me best result so far. Threatfire alerts you when any virus or malware is detected.

Not exactly. Threatfire watches for malware like behavior and alerts on detection. However it does have a database, but mainly for detecting similar threats.:blink: With the strong heuristics threatfire can detect much more without constant need of a database.:)
