    Hi, since im gonna install nod32 as soon as f-secure runs out i would like to ask a few question about other software.

    i was thinking about pairing it with eiether outpost or comodo as firewall for now.

    is that enough with my nat router?
    atm I only use f-secure internet secuirty 2007 as my realtime so is nod32+ firewall enough in this case and use antispyware as ondemand?
    its a kinda of i dont mind paying for one piece of software since i got my nod32 license for free from a kind person on this forum that didnt need it.

    Yes, it´s enough. XP´s firewall would be enough too
    I´d add a HIPS and/or a sandbox

    since its getting a firewall soon anyway.

    Very good setup until OA´s firewall is tested ;)
    I´m assuming that you have a proper backup system, OS hardened and use third-party browser/mail client with the right add-ons

    I have acronis true image 9 as my backup system.

    I use third party brower's i have opera and firefox.

    I have setup outlook express to display all emails as plain text etc.
    I haven't been infected for nearly 2 years.
    I myself use thunderbird as my mail client.
    my dad uses outlook express but I done the security changes as noted above.
    oddly i havent done much OS harderning because i havent got infected in such a long time it doesn't seem needed.
    I have used xp antispy to disable some unneeded services such as windows messaging service which isnt needed as home user.

    You have covered almost all holes
    More security apps are experts´ territory or paranoid´s mind
    Privacy is another topic
