    Hello,

    My brother has already DefenseWall installed on his computer and now He wants to add ProSecurity because he sees the good results of nicM test last week.

    I told him this is probably overkill. Any other opinion?

    Thanks

    Lets wait for NicM's results on DefenseWall in those tests :)

    Having all the best apps. is not always what is best for the pc. Having what works best on the pc makes it the best. Unless your bro is a high-risk surfer, he probably won't run into all the "nasties" used in the testing

    Hello Antarctica,

    Please take a look at post #5 in the following link:

    http://gladiator-antivirus.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=56101&st=0&p=174401&#entry174401

    On the other hand, it would all depend upon what other real-time resident security apps. that your brother is running alongside DefenseWall. Another factor to consider is whether he prefers or is interested in a set-up that is quiet and unobtrusive or one that requires more user interaction. FYI, after two years of experimenting with various security programs, I have personally found that the former offers more-or-less the same protection as the latter set-up. I am a staunch believer of layered security, but make it a point to limit the number of my real-time resident security arsenal to just three or four. Lastly, interestingly enough, I have personally found that running five or more apps. simultaneously does not necessarily result in an increase in protection. Hope this helps.


    Peace & Love,

    If I could buy Defensewll over the counter at my local PC store it would be on my machine along with Sandboxie, Returnil and those MS virtual machines.;)

    I predict on average the sandboxes will do better.
