    Title of thread pretty much sums it up. Any suggestions?

    Running Vista, AVS, Nat router, Sandboxie, and Windows firewall.

    Thanks in advance. :) .

    Do you really feel like you need more protection with that set up? I think your suite looks very good as is.

    PS..Do you have User Account Control turned on? That is "HIPS Like".

    Yes UAC is on. And yes, it appears UAC is "HIPS like". You see, I'm sort of getting back into the AntiVirus-Security thing after using Ubuntu (linux) for almost two years (buying and using Vista pulled me back to the Windows side of the line...:) ) and I'm still learning, so to speak. Haven't used Ubuntu in almost two months. I must admit it's fun getting back into the testing anti-viruses, HIPS programs, etc since my return. To be perfectly honest probably the biggest reason I switched back from Ubuntu to Vista is the games. My wife loves the new versions of Spider Solitaire, Solitaire and HoldEm (anything for the Lady). UAC reminds me a great deal of Root privilege found in Linux. Seems Windows has picked up a few tricks from Linux as well as the eye-candy of beryl apparent in Aero.

    Thanks to those who replied.
