    I am trialing FSIS 2008, but also have a 12 month license for a-squared antimalware 3.0, but does it offer any additional protection to the suite,or is it a duplication of protection and drain on resources?
    I am unable to run my preferred setup due to being unable to install Kaspersky antivirus possibly due to a registry corruption after previously having KIS 7.0 installed, and even the help by Kaspersky tech staff hasn't solved the problem,so I am trying to run solid protection that is complementary without issues,I like the 2008 suite which appears to run fine and apart from a-squared am also running ThreatFire,Sandboxie and have Returnil installed.
    I still favour Internet Explorer 7 and also keep Spyware blaster updated.
    I think I have a decent protection setup but would appreciate advice from those more knowledgable in this sphere particularly of any overkill.
    Finally I am a fairly safe surfer but after online banking etc I always run internet cleanup software.
    Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated

    IMHO f-secure is more than enough for realtime.
    sandboxie is a nice extra layer of protection.
    have you gone in to internet explorer advanced options and ticked the do not save encrypted pages to disc?
    threatfire could conflict with f-secure deepguard. since they are both HIPS
    f-secure did slow my computer down but it never let me down in blocking malware.

    Thanks for the advice I will look at that,I do use Firefox with add ons at times but still prefer IE 7.
    I will keep an eye on the possible conflict with the Hips but my other option is Outpost Pro 4.0 with F-Secure Antivirus,I have a license for the firewall which is my favourite,my ideal was pairing it with Kaspersky AV but its not an option at the moment and I have settled on F-Secure as my alternative but I will have to check what features are missing compared to the suite excluding firewall of course.

    Thanks again,much appreciated.
    Hips did appear to conflict so If I stay with the suite Threatfire will stay disabled.
