    And I do have a tendency of doing that ever so often. I do feel more secure than I ever have been, but as anyone knows, no security setup is 100% safe.

    I use TrueCrypt on my laptop, but not on my Desktop. I disk encrypt my laptop just in case it does get stolen. As for just securely shredding files, I use SlimCleaner for that.

    Add that to your Junk Cleaning/Optimizing, and you're good. Man, you have quite the setup. I would have to say, frickin' awesome setup. How are you doing on system resources....Is it pretty light?

    Not on the laptop, I have to re-do that one as well....Just haven't gotten around to that one yet. As for my other Laptop (Mac), I am running the Comodo Antivirus in combination with the built-In OS Firewall. Mac doesn't have as much choices as Windows....Wish it did though. I have 3 machines that are mine to setup, then I have to setup the family computers as well....Just need to find the time.

    I am telling you darts, you won't regret it if you do. Sandboxie is amazing stuff. Try out the fully functional trial (30 Days) to see if you like it or not. I bet you end up getting the $40 lifetime license if you decide to test it out.

    Really? I haven't had any problems with it on my main desktop machine, or my laptop. Hmmmm, that's weird. Another good one that you might want to check out is System Ninja or Wise Disk Cleaner. Wise Disk Cleaner is my favorite one out of all of them....Highly recommended.

    Sorry, I should have re-phrased that, I haven't had any bloat from the software. Everyone has different experiences I guess.

    I have used wise disk cleaner and registry cleaner from the days there were free and paid versions...now they are of course free versions only.......I would rather recommend wise registry cleaner than disk cleaner if I have to......but I don't need them......you ever tried ccleaner?....trust me it's all you need...pretty powerful stuff.......

    Just done a fresh Win7 install on my new HD. Destroyed the previous one.

    Anti-Malware: MBAM Pro
    Anti-Virus: Avast (free)
    Firewall: COMODO Firewall (free), Windows 7 Firewall Control (free)

    Browser: Firefox (NoScript, AdBlock, BetterPrivacy, HTTPS-Everywhere, PrivacyChoice TrackerBlock, WOT)

    General things: TrueCrypt containers (not FDE, dunno how), CCleaner, Defraggler, Eraser, YubiKey

    Still don't think it's enough. Thinking about TrueCrypt FDE and Sandboxie, but I don't want to screw things up. And Sandboxie is a bit on the pricey side.

    Of course, A machine without CCleaner? I wouldn't dare run a setup without it. I tend to use more than one cleaner, as they all find different thing's than the other. I am somewhat of a system utility hoarder HaHaHa :D
