    Hey guys just got a new laptop. At my university they are requiring you to run Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 in order to connect to the internet.

    I'm going to call them to see if there's anyway to make an exception, but if there isn't what programs and OS hardening suggestions would you make to go along with it?

    Windows 7 Home Premium edition and I'm using the Firefox Nightly browser

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the replies. So far I've added

    Sandboxie
    No Autorun
    Bit Defender USB immunizer
    Foxit Reader and uninstalled Adobe
    Hitman Pro
    Keriver 1-Click Restore Free
    Norton DNS
    FF Nightly Plugins: Adblock, NoScript, Ghostery, Https-Everywhere, Request Policy (CSRF protection, might have a small bug w/ Nightly)

    Looking at how to configure Keepass for password protection.

    For hardening I'm looking at using EMET and xp-Antispy although I'm not sure if they're compatible...

    In the process of downloading them. From what I understand from this http://www.xp-antispy.org/index.php/en/ueber xp-AntiSpy takes the pain out of going through all the AppLocker, LUA+SRP stuff. I don't think it's an ondemand scanner.
