    Testing with Norton 2011 went well, impressed on the performance and detection, the interface still needs a little bit of work though :)

    My only issue is that it is very light and effective. I have no complaints, what do I do...:blink: :eek: :D

    Which FW are you running? OA or AIS? I'm interested in what you think about the AIS FW if that's what you are running. ;)

    I removed AIS Firewall. I used AIS Firewall before this, I used the work profile and it was pretty silent. I'm trying a configuration and so far I like it.

    Removed stormshield; it seems to beta right now hopefully it gets improved soon. Also tried emsisoft AM but to many FP's with some games I play (That are legit and not malware; I scanned with HM Pro, avast, SAS, and Prevx all report they are clean).

    Looking for a new tool to try out any recommendations?

    If you haven't used OA FW before, I hope (and think) you'll like it. I had no major complaints. I really like the HIPS, though there are a couple programs (MailWasher Pro and Foxit Reader) that OA HIPS will simply NOT remember to trust (for me, and just on one computer!), and I had to always re-enter the setting. But that seemed like a very small price to pay for the overall greatness of the program.

    Recs for what? An AM? Have you run MBAM Pro? Or a suite? Have you tried Vipre Premium? :thumb:

    Anything Free or cheap that could accompany what I already have (posted a few replies up from here) or replace something if its better. I have MBAM Free and its pretty good opted for SAS Pro instead though as it did a better job for me. Vipre used the trial a while back it is also pretty good :)

    I have used OA FW before plenty of times and I already like it, its my favorite firewall ;) . But its my first time using ++ version of it though not a big deal really. Can't wait until OA 5 comes out.

    Thats actually a pretty good setup Ed. I would enable Avira real time though with default settings.

    I'm planning to change completely my config.What do you think guys about running BufferZone,Spyshelter free and PFW as real time protection?
  25. moontan

    only pick one of either Bufferzone or Spyshelter.

    otherwise your computer is liable to cough up hairballs.
