    Hello new user, if this is wrong section please move it.

    Basically haven't updated to new versions of the following programs in 1-2 years probably and I want to know if the new versions are still solid in the security/privacy area.

    firefox still on ver 3
    sandboxie still on ver 3
    winpatrol
    ccleaner

    I'm also on ver 4 with comodo firewall curious if ver 5 takes lot more resources then 4. Thanks for helping me :)

    You are better off to update them. There is always a chance an exploit could get around older versions of software.

    I find Winpatrol weak. I onced installed a software which was bundled with something else and told Winpatrol not to allow it, but it still got installed.

    Well Comodo Firewall is lighter uses about 6mb of memory on my laptop. Not sure about firefox as I have only used v6 very briefly.

    you can't basically tell winpatrol not to allow the installation of a software bundled w/ another one. it's more of an alerter sw, rather than a blocker sw.
    and it's great.
