Dear members, My Avira Premium licence expired last week and I thought of abandoning AV use altogether. Although I do not feel any ill effects after surfing unprotected for a week, I do desire that extra bit of insurance in the event that my pc does become compromised. Thus, I thought of installing Defensewall and Sandboxie, as this combo appears to be considered, from what I have gathered in the forum, pretty safe and fairly novice proof. However, as I have a lifetime licence for Outpost Pro, may I ask your advice: a. does the combined use of Defensewall and Sandboxie render Outpost Pro redundant and would the built in XP firewall suffice? b. if it is worth hanging on to Outpost Pro, then would I have to disable Outpost's HIPS function to avoid conflict with Defensewall's HIPS function? Thanks, and best wishes PS: should have made clear that I merely intend to stop real time AV protection.
