    Hi Daniel SR

    Common sense (e.g. "safe hex") is the most important security feature. If you're careful and knowledgeable (unlike perhaps 98% of PC users I know), then you are very well protected.

    About the most significant omission in your list is a backup regimen. Root's post, "Disaster Prevention 101" is great.

    Here are some other thoughts:
    ~A router with its own firewall (NAT/SPI) would complete the basic protection picture, IMO. A router is a very, very good complement to a SW firewall, and need not be expensive. No worries though if you can't immediately get one. ;)

    ~Outpost is relatively easy to use, but fine tuning the configuration is important. If you have not done so, I recommend a check at several good online scan sites to expose obvious problems. Then lurk around the Outpost forum and consider the many good tips available on special "maximum security" settings and rules.

    ~You concede that your AT is not the best available. Actually knowing your weakest link is quite helpful, IMO. I wouldn't worry about it though until you have the $ and inclination to try something else. Perhaps you could give a-2 a try.
