    What your guys think of this free setup.

    All freebie: Windows 7 x86
    PandaCloud 1.3
    Avira Antivir 10
    LavaSoft Adware 9.0
    Threatfire 4.7
    PrivateFirewall 7.0
    CloudMark DesktopOne 1.1
    PeerGuardian

    I don't see any slow down except when the setup scan for new download and installation. Then again I don't download much. Boot time added extra 5 seconds.

    I think it is a well round suite

    Overkill and overlap.

    Avira is superior to Panda cloud. Drop Panda. Drop Adware for MBAM or SAS or even Hitman Pro. Peerguardian and Private FW is redundant. Pick one or the other. Id pick Private FW.

    All freebie: Windows 7 x86
    Avira Antivir 10
    MBAM, SAS, or Hitman Pro
    Threatfire 4.7
    PrivateFirewall 7.0
    CloudMark DesktopOne 1.1

    Thanks...

    That setup would also be good and minimal resource use.
    PC Mag gave Panda and Adware "editor choice". Avir did not get suck good feedback except good remark for its blocking ability.

    I will still try out your setup to see if it reduce the resource usage during download and install.

    Does Private Firewall allow to block lists of IPs, as in import them? At their website, they mention
    , but it doesn't mention nothing else self explanatory.

    Nope, It's overkill.
    Panda Cloud and PFW (HIPS enabled) should cover you very well.
    CloudMarko_O Really? I don't see the need unless you receive that much spam... :rolleyes:

    :D
    I think Panda and PFW is a good combination, but I threw in TF for an overlaping protection.

    On bootup, PFW load up first then TF afterward. Panda 3th. One after another. I do not see any major slow down or conflict, as my CPU is never max over 65%.

    I rather have an overkill system, at the same time, feel protected without an overweight system.

    Anyway, I just playing around with these setup trying to get the best combination for the penny. Meant freebie =)

    I take any suggestion to see which is best.

    Little advice needed for never satisfied setup :p
    win 7 64-bit

    Realtime:
    Norton 360 with advance firewall (Should I change it to Avira or Avast?)
    Prevx Full
    Sandboxie - Cover all net applications.
    No Autorun
    Winpatrol

    Well I know many recommend Norton but internal testing shows otherwise..

    Just drop Norton and don't pick anything else instead.

    Sandboxie + Prevx Full + WinPatrol + Win 7 64-bit internals (like firewall, uac, sehop, dep) will serve you fine.

    Stopped using WinPatrol PLUS as I realised I never actually need it for anything. Also, went back to avast! Free; the Internet Security suite has too many things I don't want.

    I'd be interested in finding out more. That would contradict recent professional tests.

    PC Mag had been my trusted source for review. Also I goes out and search the web for other reviews to compare with.

    After that, I install the appz and test it out myself.

    FYI. Privatefirewall HIPS was to annoying with all the popups and a little slow. Disable it and let Threatfire do the job.

    Installing programs seem to have speed up by .5%
