    For about ~ a month that I've removed all low integrity level file system from my system, except chrome.exe. Registry included. So, chrome.exe is the only thing running with a low integrity level, and it can't write to anywhere. :D Changes attempts to Windows protected areas are being redirected.

    If there only was a program which made this easy to set low integrity for everyone. Same here, only chrome is comodo dragon and redirect is realised through run as invoker (I am on 32 bits windows, so might as well use windows build in file and registry virtualisation to the max).

    Admin - LUA - Protected mode (or high - medium - low rights), hopefully this third level will be used in future more often to contain/sandbox threatgates.

    Testing WSA antivirus at the moment and so far i'm loving it. The performance is amazing and the detection tests from av-test look promising.
    With the abundance of top notch free security solutions available I have never found the need to pay for security software, but I might have to buy WSA.
    I just need to keep an eye out for discounts now... :D

    To a regular user, probably not, a good FW and a good AV (or Suite) should suffice, but your not a regular user jmonge, now are you. :D

    Here is what I like about Anti-Excutable.Example a program you may not want ever installed on your system of course malware and rogues, but lets say a legit one as well.If you deny the install it goes in the execution control list and in the event the program tries to get installed again in the future its denied.Example screen shots.
