    I just wanted to post up my new system config so that I could get some feedback, maybe some suggestions.

    New install of Windows 7 x64.
    Backup image taken with Shadow Protect 4.
    Installed EAZ-Fix for system recovery.
    Running limited sser account.
    Windows DEP enabled.

    Norton Internet Security 2012
    Malware Byes *
    KeyScrambler Pro
    WinPatrol Plus

    * I do actually have the paid version but I have lost my key. If I can find it I'll be using the realtime protection, if not then I won't bother.

    I welcome your feedback and suggestions...

    Looking at your signature there I could add DNS level protection. Since ClearCloud has stopped, I only know of OpenDNS and NortonDNS. I don't think OpenDNS blocks malicious websites does it?

    You could try Comodo Secure DNS, and/or BitDefender TrafficLight / WOT.

    Add SUMo (lite or portable version) or Secunia, and you're set.

    Personally I would keep MBAM as on demand, probably drop Winpatrol as I don't think it's needed, but I would add sandboxing to the mix.

    Suggestions for a x64 sandbox?

    I use Sandboxie on the laptop but it doesn't fully protect x64 does it?

    Yes, it's different. Why would you want feedback on an over-populated thread like that?
