    I am running dr.web av, spyshelter free, ad-aware free without realtime guard, winpatrol free, mbam pro, super antispyware free, spybot search and destroy and spywareblaster. Is there anything i could add to those or change some programs or maybe get rid of some? :rolleyes:

    I would get rid of ad-aware free, spybot search and destroy. MBAM Pro is much better than both.

    Thanks for the answers. I will try that sandboxie. I quess i will get rid of that ad-aware and maybe spybot. Is there any other good program than winpatrol that alerts on new startup programs and such? I also have the dr.web firewall and i had psi and i updated all programs and got 100% security rating and then uninstalled it because i think that too much of these programs are starting to slow things a little bit. What about threatfire is it worth anything? I have tried it in the past but uninstalled it. I dont have any backup solution.

    If you're happy with SpyShelter free then use that, at least it is being actively developed, unlike ThreatFire.

    I would strongly suggest you look into applying some sort of backup.
    You may not need it today,tomorrow or even next week but believe me someday you will be happy to have one.
    There are many to chose from, free or paid.
    Personally my choice is Macrium Reflect v4.2 paid, with images on a external hard drive.
    As it has saved me from major headaches multiple times, self inflected of course, from trying so many different softwares, mostly security related.

    Keep DrWeb add Sandboxie with restrictions, Use MBAM for OD scan and use windows wall and block all incoming.You can use free Kervier 1 click restore for image.You can drop the rest.

    I would remove ad-aware, winpatrol, spybot and spywareblaster. I would use MBAM as on-demand only and replace superantispyware with Hitman pro. I would also add some system backup software.
