    I just started running A-Squared. Am I good with just A-squared and windows XP firewall? Any suggestions on another protection layer to run alongside?

    firewall w/ hips. some would argue that xp firewall is enough. Try either PCtools, Online armor, private and outpost. All have free versions and all have good hips.

    Hey noob,
    How is Outpost working with A2? I used it a few years ago but never went back to it.

    I run a-squared and Vista firewall. But I also run MAM. That's all I have and need I believe. Never been infected by anything in 20 years.

    I think it depends on which kind of software you run.
    If you use many not so well known programs and little tools, there will be more FPs. If you prefer standard software, the amount of FPs will be less.
    I had my last FP approx one year ago.

    First time had a FP with A-Squared.
    Just yesterday i ran CCleaner and it detected it as a trojan :D

    But common sense was enough to not delete it

    I discovered asquared a few days ago when a friends comp and my wife's comp got infected.
    My wife's had AVG internet security 9 paid edition and my friend had Bit Defender suite.Neither caught the Trojans.

    I got some help at Major Geek forum
    /Malware removal and I was told to get rid of aSquared.I didn't because it does good.
    I also have no faith in all the ,so-called,anti-virus testing sites.One has aSquared at the top and the next ne has it in the 15th spot.Lying ba$t@rd$.

    I like it. It seems to be a good catcher.
    I think the person at Majer Geek is uninformed about aSquared NOW.
    He said "stick to regulars like Super_anti-Spyware and MBAM.

    What do you use to make the My sys Profile?

    If I run SUPERAntispywarePro' Online Armor free,A good free anti-virus, would it benefit me to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware pro also?

    This is a very good program ! False positives are few . Used to be a problem over a year ago depending on whom you speak to . I would use this one in a heartbeat for single protection . I have found this program to always be strong . Maybe not always but , for the last 5 years at least . Differing versions of course . I am not a hater or a fan boy . You want good protection and you want an honest opinion that is only based on expertise and fact , this is a no brainer .

    Can I have a free license now. :D :D :D

    I would add Winpatrol 2010 to the list.
    Winpatrol free is a life safer in my opinion.
    WinPatrol Plus 2010 offers some features more and it is really cheaper.
    It won't confilict with any of the above mentioned softwares
