    My current real-time security apps are in my sig. Is it too much? Or would you substitute something? I wonder if Online Armor Free would be a better fit than Comodo with D+.

    I think you're fine, and personally prefer Comodo's D+ rather than Online Armor. :thumb:

    I think you could do even with less security. Your current setup is as bulletproof as it gets (for non paranoid people). I would either run Antivir or PrevX edge if i were you (not both), but since you paid for them and they get along nice together, well, keep them both!

    IMO comodo D+ prevx Edge and Defensewall seems a bit much but if they do not clash with each other then hey to each there own.

    Just seeing your signature...

    You can survive without DefenseWall & Prevx if you have D+. If your using the latest CIS 3.5, To activate the full power of Defense+ again like CFP 3.0, It's as simple as right clicking the system tray icon and choosing Configuration>COMODO - Proactive Security.

    Since I paid for Prevx and DefenseWall, they would go with Comodo's D+, right? Or should I substitute something else?

    Honestly, from what I've been reading in these forums lately, I would lose the D+.
    You've got a lot of good protection with Avira, Defensewall and Edge.

    If you paid for them (sorry I didn't know), Then maybe it is worth disabling D+. :) DefenseWall & Prevx are good products.

    yes just keep the firewall part of comodo if you like it, and after disabling D+ it should go fine, although i still think prevx edge could be taken out if you wanted to.

    I think I'll just drop DefenseWall instead. DefenseWall did not near all the tests in the CLT (Comodo Leak Tester,) even when marked as an untrusted application.

    Actually, if it was trusted application, it would have failed alltogether...

    So Defensewall scored, what, about 270, if i remember well? The difference with Comodo being, that it scored that without you having to answer a single pop up.

    Can you pls test DefenseWall again & post the results on the forums pls. We can then add it to the list of results.

    At least three tests there are implemented wrong way (ActiveDesktop, SetWindowsHookEx, FileDrop). All the network-based tests there will be covered with 2.50 version.

    I think your HIPS is an excellent product you have, I tested in VM and works extremely well. Comodo Defense+ and DefenseWall are both great HIPS.

    yep, i received a 250 score without a single pop-up. with Outpost Firewall Pro 2009 enabled, the network stuff is handled, with a score of 310 (only the wrongly implemented tests am i allegedly vulnerable to) and my "in the clouds" behavior anaylst will block true malicious code.

    I don't know if your product adds anything that Comodo's D+ doesn't, and I can have Comodo for free.
