    Hi,

    I was wondering if nod32+online armor would be enough in real time?
    I think i would use comodo firewall in till the online armor firewall is added.
    is spysweeper's shields resourse usage gonna change? and become lighter?
    and faster scanning? because if it is i might renew it if not i wont.
    or i could get nod32 or antivir suite+online armor+counterspy since i know version 2.0 is improving.
    but with online armor I think I could just use free on demand scans like e.g.
    ewido micro scanner,kaspersky online scanner sometimes,a squared free etc.
    im still waiting to see about antivir suite.
    thanks in advance

    If :
    1. your browser security settings are good; and
    2. you don’t download software from dodgy sites
    then you are unlikely to get infected.

    I’ve been wondering happily all over the net for the last two years without an alert from any of my security apps (and I have a number of on demand scanners which never find anything either).

    I’m running SU, OA AV+ & Prevx1 (and that’s probably overkill seeing as I haven’t had an infection since I tightened my settings)

    Some would also suggest running as a user account instead of admin account (it does offer more protection)

    I haven't got infected in nearly 2 years.
    so thats why im looking for lighter protection.

    I dont go to any dodgy sites. i use firefox with adblocker and the updater. no script and site advisor.

    i was thinking of maybe nod32+avg antispyware+comodo. that should be enough. or just get nod32+online armor. does online armor slow down your boottime much?

    I would certainly think NOD32 + OA is enough. And no, OA doesn't slow boottime much
