    Yea his sig is longer lmao. :D I don't know what I would be using if I didn't have that nice license (thanks again) for EAM that you gave me. I think my setup is suffcient in protecting me. I might try Online Armor when they have v5 beta public hehe, since I still got a year (about) license for it. :)

    I agree with you there ChamP. I wouldn't want to rely solely on a cloud av. I don't trust my net provider either lol :D

    On-Demand Suggestions:

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (The scan speed of the new version is quite fast.)
    SuperAntiSpyware
    DrWeb Cureit (Standalone exe, Requires new DrWeb Cureit exe file download for Malware signature update, ~52 Mbytes, It is suggested that you use "Express Scan" only since a "Full Scan" takes several hours.)

    If I were you I would remove WinPatrol, DefenseWall, Prevx and Wondershare :D.
    KIS is good enough, together with the os-internals, browser, and common sense (I tried it when it was CF1, but it is a shame KIS is moving to the bloatware side, it was so damn heavy. But like I said earlier, KIS is the only suite worth the money in comparison to the antivirus.)
    Sure an layered approach is the thing to do. But I agree it is sick.
    I am using my "layered setup": Windows 7 64-bit, nearly everything on default, and ESET NOD32 Antivirus, nearly everything on default. I have never been infected, and never have been close to infection. I can't think of any reason to add another program.

    Also I know a lot of people on Wilders love WinPatrol. But I have never seen it do anything which makes me want it, certainly not as an security app.

    Thanks for your valuable suggestion :) I will keep in mind while deciding for on-demand scanner.

    @Matthijs5nl: I am not the only user of computer in my house. Sometimes, my friend(s) or cousin(s) use it for browsing. They are not well educated about cyber threats. If I were the only users, I would have installed DefenseWall along with SRP/DEP/SEHOP only.

    1. WinPatrol is already on-demand only
    2. Prevx is very lightweight second opinion cloud scanner. Right now it is using around 10 MB, 48 MB Read I/O, 0.7 MB Write I/O, and less than 1% processor load.
    3. DefenseWall is must have for me. Policy based HIPS (sandbox like functionality) allow me surf and download without any security concern. Moreover, it is sometimes useful to test software installation.
    4. Wondersahre Time Freeze allows me system wide software testing too + reason described above.

    I use Chrome and the Norton Safe Web it does not work, so I need to use Norton DNS to block malicious sites. But who uses IE or FF does not need Norton DNS.
