    What programs should be added to PC besides OA Free, so OA Free to have same(read: similar) features and same functionality as OA paid.

    1. Added programs which are paid (mixed paid and free software).


    2. Added programs which are only Freeware.



    I would like to hear your opinions.

    Drive Sentry free for extra file and registry protection, plus blacklist scanning

    GeSWall free for browser protection

    +1 on GesWall free (or GesWall/DefenseWall paid, depending on which one you feel more comfortable with).

    If you are not fond of that "Community" aspect in DriveSentry, u can maybe use a HIPS which offers file & registry protection but with application protection disabled (something like EQSecure, which is free) coupled with one of the popular free AntiViruses.

    Or instead of HIPS & AV as different products, you can go with Rising AV which offers decent file/registry/antivirus protection with default settings.. Not so highly ranked in all those AV tests, but strong in additional HIPS-like protection it offers..

    Another +1, of course.
    Maybe also with only file/registry protection in MD, if one gets easily annoyed with seemingly neverending cannonade of popups:) Also Avira's heuristics and policy based protection of GW/DW can substitute lack of that classical HIPSy application protection quite well.

    I guess u'll be fine inside your combo with sporadic demand-only AV usage, mainly at those times when you feel just bored enough to run it:)
