    I think sandbox has some great possibilities. We jsut have to see how well it will develop.

    arent Heuristic Analysis and Behavior Blockers simply a form of Proactive Protection?

    in that case ill just vote for Proactive Protection.

    heuristics are important because they are effective and at the same time, dont have as much "False positives" as HIPS and such.

    behavior blockers are also good because u can prevent damage from viruses, however it requires user interaction.

    Voted for Other. I rather block or disable everything than to rely on any heuristic or signatures.

    Hello,
    Just Firefox with Noscript. That's enough.

    I agree with WSFUser regarding behavioural and heuristic analysis. Both are forms of proactive defense rather than reactive.
