    Howdy,

    I currently use ESET NOD32 anti-virus, Windows Defender, and Windows Firewall on Windows Vista 64 bit, along with a hardware firewall. I used to use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but its real-time protection does not work on Windows Vista 64 bit. I feel a bit naked without some form of anti-spyware other than NOD32 and Windows Defender. What other anti-malware solution(s) would y'all recommend? Is Windows Firewall good enough with a hardware firewall, or should I look at another software firewall?

    You could try Norton Anti-Bot / Primary Response SafeConnect, if you want some IDS/Behavioral protection.

    Firewall: Comodo Firewall runs fine on Vista 64. Including Defense+ HIPS.

    I am using SuperAntispyware pro with the real time protection enabled on Vista x64 works a treat with no issues.

    The Norton UAC is in public beta and currently only works with Norton IS.

    Not true at all. HOWEVER, it will only work on an Admin account. The second I made myself a standard user, it stopped working.

    no, not the bootup and shutdown scans. But it does protect while the computer is up and running.
