    How much "real time" protection can I expect while surfing the net from things like Drive By downloads, ActiveX, tracking cookies, browser & search engine hijacking, redirects, filching sites, etc., with this program. Would Socketshield offer more real time protection?

    Thank you in advance for your comments

    I would say use Opera, disable Java, plugins and cookies, and run it in a sandbox. And a proper firewall.
    What am i missing? Alot i'm sure lol

    prevx1 wont stop cookies but it will stop any malicious executables (programs).

    using firefox + noscript, i have yet to encounter any malware though.
