    You may also want to check out DefenseWall. Excellent protection with virtually no pop-ups. Terrific support as well.

    I suggest to use limited priviledges, maybe starting with Surun that is very easy to use..
    IMHO this is the only way that really works (and always will work) and implement your security with any doubt, while you can't say same thing about other softwareso_O

    Look'n'Stop and DefenseWall HIPS works great no problem.
    Also I have tested L'n'S and DefenseWall Personal Firewall (still in closed beta) and there is no problem also, but since DWPF offers Firewall module you don't need others firewalls - however if you still want use your favorite firewall with DefenseWall Personal Firewall there will no problems or you can just choose DefenseWall HIPS.

    I agree. Sandboxie is your primary security app (but set it up properly as per ssj100's previous posts). There's lot of different apps you could then add as your second line, but what you've got is a perfectly good setup that covers all the bases. Very well balanced in my opinion.
