    Hi, I currently have Nod32 and Zone Alarm installed.

    Could you guys specify the team of programs that you usually install with Nod32 for secure PC such as other anti spyware programs, anti trojans that complement Nod32 well

    Thanks

    I install nothing more than Ad-Aware se Personal edition
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com
    just for second opinion for the spyware

    NOD32's trojan detection is great and the spyware part is good ,too .

    Same here, and it is just for a second opinion. NOD32 has Checkmark certification by West Coast Labs for spyware
    I also use Sygate Personal Firewall although it's hard to get now... but you can try searching this forum for it :D

    Cheers :)

    Right now, along with NOD32 (I keep trying other AVs, but keep coming back to NOD :) ), I'm running Sunbelt Kerio Firewall 4.3.246 paid version, SpywareBlaster and Sybot S&D. I feel pretty safe with this setup. Of course, I also stay away from the dark side of the net. ;) :D

    Here's my current setup:

    os: win xp sp2 (all updates)
    fw: win xp fw behind a router
    browser: opera 9
    e-mail: the bat!

    on access scanners: nod32 & ewido 4.0 plus

    on demand scanners: spybot s&d, ad-aware, a-squared
    additional: spywareblaster (though I only use the IE for accessing windowsupdate.com)

    Occasionally, I run Kaspersky's or Bitdefender's online scanner.

    I think it's a pretty safe combo. :D

    Adaware..gets updated, for possible use in the future for scanning/cleaning
    CCleaner

    That's it. All clients networks are behind NAT routers.

    According to the 5.0 Beta 3 release notes, Spy Sweeper 5.0 Beta can be obtained through one of the following methods:

    1. On the Home screen click Check for program update and follow the download instructions. The web page will let you know that a download of the beta program is available

    2. Some people may receive an e-mail invitation to participate in the beta program.

    According to the answer given by the technical support team, the availability of the beta to licensed user of SpySweeper is by random.

    If you are using the SpySweeper 4.5 series, you can check for program updates and see if a beta is available for you. :)

    I am curious that there are several people on this thread that use the Windows XP firewall. Does the lack of outbound control concern you? And if not is that in large part because of NOD32? or would you still use the XP firewall even without NOD32? Thanks.

    Yes , dear , no matter what AV I use , I will still keep Windows Firewall . I follow MS policy (The Security Center policy , if you don't know - 1,2,3 and 4) . The firewall is to make the PC invisible and to keep the intruders out , not to filter the trojans trying to make outgoing calls . The last one is made by the antivirus softwares and the antispywares. Moreover , I have always used excellent products - now NOD32 , before Panda , so I have always had great protection . I have firewalls different from WF because they are much higher or resourses , also ;)

    Tiny firewall wil complement nod32 better than anythings else. Less memory usage and unmatched protection. You can add spysweeper for extra protection.

    While I don't boot into Windows anymore my setup in Windows is: LnS + NOD + ProcessGuard + RegDefend (the last version before the suite) and nothing else really. I do use other tools, encryption, a password safe, an integrity tool, and Acronis TI. The rest of the tools are maintenance oriented.
