I'm thinking of installing EQSecure. I already use Returnil and Sandboxie, as well as (occasionally) a virtual machine running OpenBSD. Is buying another copy of XP Pro to run in a virtual machine worth it? I'm thinking it may be necessary to deliberately get some malware and play with it in a safe environment. I need to understand malware better so I know how to protect myself. Several posters seem to run EQSecure in a virtual machine. I would install it in my 'real' OS? Is Returnil + Sandboxie + EQSecure going too far? It doesn't seem so to me, but then I'm paranoid.
