    Hello All,
    It's been awhile since I bought a new machine. All I needed was something to take with me when traveling just to do emails, check news, maybe a little light banking, like check balances, and MS Office tasks, nothing really heavy. Didn't want to spend a pile of money either.

    Netbook was o.k. but wanted a little bit more than that for occassional time I need to look at a CD of data or if my eyes need some relief from looking at 10 inch screen.

    Picked up a Persario CQ62-214NR has a Celeron 900, 2.2 GHz chip :doubt: 2GB of ram but can go to 8. Win 7 Home Premium. 64 bit.

    Hope it is enough to do the above.

    Anyway, I think all I need is MSE just something simple and free. My OutPost is lifetime and on the shelf at the moment. I want to be able to block the ads too, a certain plus when using an "air card" from one of the major carriers.

    How about that combo will they argue with one another?? I will turn off OutPost Spyware detection.

    I'm not an expert on these things but I have used almost all the free stuff out there so I'll throw in my 2 cents worth.

    I purchased a netbook a few weeks ago that I use for the same purposes you mentioned. Not heavy, but because of the banking portion security is of major concern.

    I always use Sandboxie so thats a given. I ended up using Comodo CIS on the netbook. Its one integrated package, is relatively light and I'm not installing/changing software much so the pop-ups are not a problem.

    I believe that MSE and Outpost are relatively heavy and from what I've read Outpost, which I've used for a couple of years, is not as good as it used to be.

    FWIW I use Sandboxie, Panda Cloud, and DW3 on my primary desktop. I'm piddling around with my Windows 7 machine but haven't settled on the security for it yet, except for Sandboxie, of course.
