    hello
    I wanted to know if my configuration was sufficient :
    windows seven 64 with UAC max
    look and stop with climeone rules
    avira premium
    Firefox 3.6a1 with noscript, adblock plus, noreferrer and cookie safe
    I know I lack a HIPS but seven UAC it does not act as HIPS?
    thank you for your answers

    You are fine with that setup. Just get on and use your PC - let it breathe and dont block it up with junk AMs etc.

    Its importsnt to have a good system image and backup of your docs etc - in case of emergency!

    Your setup's fine. Yes, I believe UAC is similar to a HIPS. Just also remember to use common sense.

    You can turn windows defender in to a sort of HIPS if you enable advanced membership to spynet.

    Hello kiko:

    Here is my generic list of what users on the www need,


    1. Soild Image Backups, data in one partition, programs in another
    2. An encrypted password manager to generate maximum strength passwords, if you can remember your passwords they are useless
    3. H/W FW for the incoming
    4. S/W FW for the outgoing exclusions of other security SW coded in
    5. AV with behavioual and heuristic logic, and quarantine (not auto deletion of FP's), exclusions of other security SW coded in
    6. Real time ASW exclusions of other security SW coded in
    7. A HIPS exclusions of other security SW coded in
    8. An industrial strength KeyScrambler
    9. and last but not least a folder where all my private data goes that is encrypted.
