    Hello.

    On my pc I have the following:

    1. Norton Internet Security 2012
    2. MAB (paid)
    3. Prevx
    4. Sandboxie
    5. DefenseWall
    Is this too much security?

    Thank you again.

    I'd dump Prevx or Norton. Choose Sandboxie or DW.

    You'll be fine with just:

    NIS 2012, MBAM Pro and Sandboxie.

    yes, way too much i think,

    many people have had problems when using Prevx and Sandboxie together.
    something you might want to keep in mind.

    pick either DW or SBIE, not both.
    and either Norton or Prevx.


    what is MAB? did you mean MBAM?

    I've got

    Kaspersky AV
    MBAM (paid)
    Sandboxie

    I think it's an excellent combination.

    I am thinking of swapping Sandboxie back to Bufferzone, which is my real favorite.

    To much? Just a tad bit. :eek:
    Thats ok, Wilders will do that to you now and then :D
    It's all a matter of personal preference on what one wants to keep for security.
    Personally, I'm running DefenseWall complimented with Shadow Defender and feel perfectly safe.

    If you have paid for DefenseWall then that's about all you need otherwise I'd use Sandboxie & a firewall.

    I use MBAM because I dislike AVs.

    I second LoneWolf's ShadowDefender. Throw it over your Cdrive and you can whether just about any storm.

    But as a software junkie my best high and ol' favorite is Snapshot disk imaging. The first security item anyone should have is a c:drive imaging program. AVs and SBie etc are great preventative measures but REAL men use Disk imaging. Nothing works quite like instant open-heart surgery. Knowing you can quickly perform a c:drive transplant on the patient is the best peace of mind.

    Absolutely agree.
    Macrium Reflect has saved me (from myself) many times working flawlessly after testing many,so very many a softwares. (security related of course)

    Not too much but as most have recommended, you can trim it down a bit.

    Real Time:
    NIS 2012
    On Demand:
    Malwarebytes
    Restrictions:
    Sandboxie + Defenswall

    That is pretty good :D

    Seriously, do you really need anything else when using latest Norton ?
    For second opinion i use online services like Comodo CIMA and VT while i leave the real-time job to avast!. So far so good and i'm often in the danger zones...

    Sorry have to disagree, I think to be more secure it is advisable to run your browsers and email programs untrusted, using such as Defensewall or Sandboxie and not just be reliant on an Internet Security Suite or scanners.

    Yes!!!

    Just use Norton IS 2012 and either choose Sandboxie or DefenseWall, then use free versions of Antispywares as on demand scanners. Use Firefox browser w/ Adblock Plus then add subscription w/ Malware Domain Lists. :cool:

    No Anti virus can handle the constent changing rogues.Sandboxie or Defensewall programs can.
