    Multi layer defense ;). Basically, HIPS and sandboxing. And virtual surfing if needed.

    MBAM realtime is a blacklist based 'add-on', so do Wilders members count this as a naked setup yes/no :D

    I dont count it as naked if any AV or AM are running real time,its just titled differently.

    If it weren't for the fact that I have to have a real-time antivirus enabled in order to connect to my work VPN, I wouldn't bother with real-time antivirus. I would just do occasional on-demand scans.

    For me, a combination of system-wide policy restriction (AppGuard) and system-wide virtualization (Shadow Defender) behind a router is enough real-time security. It provides silent but effective protection with no popups or decision making on my part.

    No AppArmor restrictions on access?

    I haven't had a single infection for the last 5 years, while surfing 8h+ per day on average, including online banking and trying lots of apps all the time, with the following setup (100% free!):

    LUA+google chrome+WOT+Tiny Watcher+HitmanPro+googDNS+winFW. NO IE, JAVA, NO ADOBE (most common threat gates). I also recently added the excellent little-known ExeWatch to my setup.

    Os: xp sp3

    Yeah, awesome thread. The "what's your gear" threads are my faves.

    For Windows.

    32bit: Defensewall
    64bit: Comodo FWD+

    On demand if counting these:
    Norton Power Eraser
    McAfee GetSuspect


    CCleaner allowed to clean Temp <24hours

    Chrome Dev. C2P. No Java.

    Also like Safe Online browser components of Prev/Webroot, but they also by default include AV, so /nfm??

    Using The highly hated Trusteer Rapport on my dad's computer. Seems to be holding things down. Sometimes incompatible with Fox updates (what he uses). Biggest improvement was ditching Java for him. No, really.

    Sandboxie + LnS + EMET

    random choice of portable internet browser -> sandboxed by sandboxie

    EAM on demand

    No Java, No Adobe, NO IE
    I can't put my self to try SRP, maybe I will someday ;)

    update : almost forgot, my other main protection is virtual machine running linux distro / windows 7

    Why not try this? ;) -hxxp://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=297834#post1862599- It's SRP, but much more simpler and works with Starter and Home editions :)
    Via Parental Controls ;)

    I have asked it before and will do it again. Using Parential Control as an executable control is really a brilliant way to use this. It deserves its own thread with a small setup guide. Who has the time and knowledge to post?

    Combined with the deny unsigned programs elevation of UAC (through registry) makes a super solid security setup (and super light) within hand reach of every Win7 Home owner.

    So who shows how it is done?

    I used to use Parental Control as anti-exe. But I noticed this behavior in my box.
    1. You can't install a software in your Standard User even if you allow the setup and run as administrator. (I can't remember if an error will show up or nothing will happen.)
    2. To install on an admin account, if you are currently logged in as Standard User, you must restart and log in to your admin account. If you just logged off, the same thing will happen in case 1.
