    I only have the following enabled:

    • File Shield
    • Mail Shield
    • Software Updater
    • Home Network Security

    I don't think I need anything else enabled.

    None. I update manually, and I use it as an on-demand AV.

    File Shield only, as I do in every real-time AV. But I only use them on Win7.
