    If you are running Ghostery you really don't need Better Privacy. You can go to -http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html to double check all LSOs are gone.

    Hello jmonge!

    Never talked to you, but always see your msgs and reviews, really nice!!

    Have you added MBAM Pro in Real Time? It is working fine?

    I was thinking about adding mbam pro or spyshelter... but I don´t know if that´s going to be a bit overkill to my setup... what do you think? I own licenses of both...

    Anyway, advices would be really appreciated!

    Thanks!

    oh yes it will be a good idea to have it in real time and yes i have the pro version as it has a huge database and if it doesnt slow my system down it will
    complement my antivirus.i tested it before and it(heuristics engine)catches alot of new malware,only the pro version i think it has the heuristic engine:thumb:

    I finally settled into this setup after one month of searching for very high satisfaction.
    My previous setup for several years was just
    Avira Free
    Comodo (FW & Defence+)
    WinPatrol
    My own simple script to backup limited number of files.
    and I have never been infected.
    But I wanted something new, so I searched a lot (especially in this forum) and found great(in my opinion) combination.


    [Router]
    NEC - Aterm WR7600H (Deny inbound for commonly used ports)
    WPA-PSK(not 2), AES encryption with 32characters.

    [OS]
    Windows-Vista Home Basic 32bit (OEM)
    UAC enabled.

    [Realtime Protection]
    VIPRE (AV only)
    PrivateFirewall (with HIPS enabled. As for FW, just set at "high")
    AppGuard (Lockdown. More convenient than "High")
    WinPatrol Plus (The last line of the defense. Also I want it's icon resides in the task bar!)
    EMET (DEP = Opt-Out, SEHOP = Always-On, ASLR = Opt-In)

    [On Demand]
    Malwarebytes Free

    [Browser]
    Firefox
    +AdBlock (Just about 30 lines ruleset)
    +Better Privacy
    +LastPass
    +BitDefender TrafficLight
    +WOT
    and other addons not related to security.

    [Backup]
    Genie TimeLine Pro (for file backup)
    AVG LiveKive 25GB (in case for disaster. Also highly unlikely at here)
    Paragon Backup & Recovery Free (for periodic imaging)


    I also have Debian installed on this machine with zero security software. (No iptables too)

    I want to say "thank you" to all members as you have compiled great discussions.

    Settings

    EMET : Applications set - Browers & Flash & Steam
    Downloads folder : No execution allowed.
    "Run" folder : Full execution allowed , has Path Access in Applocker
    Applocker : Have 2 simple script files on desktop to switch Applocker On and Off.
    Sandboxie : only used to block untrusted USB's.
    VirusTotal : have "send to" VirusTotal on right-click menu.
