OK, so I've been on a security kick lately, and frankly, I think I've been overdoing things. Maybe you guys can shed some light and share some ideas... Right now, I'm on Vista x64, running: Comodo 3, with Defense+ active Avira 8, no web scanner SuperAntiSpyware pro A-Squared antimalware for the behavior based HIPS (got that free 1 year license a while back) Winpatrol SpywareBlaster (protecting the host file and immunizing, obviously not running in the background) This is all behind a router with the DD-WRT firmware, SPI/NAT turned on, wireless turned off, default IP changed, and password protected correctly (no backdoor admin defaults). The system runs WELL, I have to say. I don't feel like I'm slowed down at all, surfing is quick, games run well, etc. I might surf to some "dangerous" areas, and I run bittorrent to get backups for old CDs/DVDs that are scratched to all hell, but so far, I haven't found anything malicious in a few years. I'm thinking about ditching Comodo and Defense+ and just using the Vista FW, but lack of outbound control has me worried, to say the least. Any thoughts on the matter?
