Difficult to say really but if it were on a server then maybe KAV or other hosted AV service with blacklists. If its for a desktop maybe F-prot or Bit Defender.
but in reality I normaly deploy 5 or 6 different kinds of security per machine
reboot and back to normal
Agreed. Deepfreeze or shadowuser.
i really don't know what i'd use - probably just what comes as default with what i buy.
at work i have a router and the manufacturer recommends using an addidional software firewall
i will use BING.
AVIRA AntiVir PE 7 Classic, absolutely.
After I got over security software withdrawal I'd use Prevx1.
i dont know what manufacturer you speak of, but a router with firewall would be sufficient.
i chose antivirus because it can identify and remove malware.
Prevx1 (and a router)
I would put all my eggs in FD-ISR.
Not to upset anyone here, BUT these if only 1 polls are silly.
The theme of these forums is clear, NO ONE SHOULD put all their eggs in 1 basket.
If you want to run polls ask what AV is "best", AMW etc etc.
If you forced me I would keep my firewall, to keep the baddies at bay.
System Safety Monitor Full
For me: a sandbox behind a NAT+SPI router plus XP built-in firewall with the appropriate system hardening and locking.
Finally, using safe applications like Firefox, Opera, Thunderbird with the right add-ons/extensions(NoScript, SiteAdvisor, etc)
For the average Joe: a light and strong suite like Avira Suite, AVG Suite or the upcoming Eset Suite
Don´t forget backups
Sandbox is the best concept in online security
Only being able to have 1 application I would probably choose PREVX1 or maybe NOD32 (I also sit behind a router).
no suites allowed
Other, somebody elses computer
Comodo Personal Firewall.
Well i'd say it all depends on what the setup is.
Behind a router with a firewall my pick would be system safety monitor.
If it was a direct connection to the net my pick would be outpost.
Only one that comes to mind for me is ShadowSurfer. It drops any and all files/changes introduced at every reboot.
On a light note, i was using it one evening and was away from the machine for a few days. Came back doing malware research locally and couldn't understand after hours of modifications and tests as well as obtaining samples and making reports rebooted later that day and was Shocked that all my efforts were dumped down the drain in a moment of time by a reboot. This kept repeating itself over several times and System Restore each time was disabled after i re-enabled it every time only to finally discover that ShadowSurfer was still ENABLED! I thought i had turned it OFF but i guess not. Glad it was that and not something else more mischievious to have to chase down again.
Thanks for sharing your experience and letting us know the power of sandboxes
Also this remember us about the importance of the user in front of the PC. Bad decisions = things messed up
I would use NOD 32, or Sygate firewall
I am too scared to use just one.
