    Hi there,

    I'm looking for some more active protection. Something easygoing and nothing that prompt all the time. Something easy like PG compared to SSM.

    Windows XP SP2
    Kerio 4, HIPS disabled
    PG full with RegProt
    KAV 6 and BOClean
    Spyware Terminator, free - HIPS enabled

    on demand:

    a-squared, free
    ewido, free
    Super Anti Spyware, free

    Spyware Terminator will be gone (for personal reasons)

    Are my settings enough protection? Should I add an other layer? A malware catcher like A-squared, full ?

    Thank you in advance.

    options:
    -CIPS: PrevX
    -sandoxes/virtualization apps: GeSWall, DefenseWall, BufferZone, Sandboxie, GreenBorder, etc
    IMHO, you already have too much realtime apps:
    -AV: KAV
    -AT/AS/AM: BOClean
    -behaviour blocker: KAV PDM
    -firewall: Kerio
    -classical HIPS: PG

    i agree with lucas, u have more than enough protection.

    but if that doesnt bother u, another item u can add is a HOSTS file. in the past i used Hostsman with teh MVPS hosts file.

    You are looking at replacing Spyware Terminator with A-Squared full?
    That may be an upgrade.

    For me, Bufferzone, CyberHawk, AVAST antivirus and a hardware firewall along with a software for outgoing. That's enough, combined with very safe surfing, it ought to do the job.
