    would a combo like this work as far as stopping malware or would you still need a AV. Thank you

    unless you have already a licence for antibot,i'd definatelly suggest you prefer TF over it.i got friends that have litteraly bombarded both withmalware and TF actually did nice(er). :)

    I just started using Sandboxie again within a snapshot, it was always a nice program but with the work done to it over the recent months it is even better now, a really well polished sandbox. A behaviour blocker / hips with sandboxie looks a good combo to me but I don't run av anyway.

    Hello trjam,

    Based upon personal experience, it is my opinion that a "resident" antivirus is not necessary when running a security set-up which consists primarily of a sandbox(policy restriction and/or virtualization) and behavioral anti-malware application.

    Sandboxes: BufferZone, DefenseWall, GesWall, SafeSpace or Sandboxie.
    Behavioral Anti-Malware: DriveSentry(secondary)*, Mamutu, Micropoint, Norton AntiBot/Primary Response SafeConnect, Prevx or ThreatFire.

    *Note: DriveSentry employs behavioral heuristics as a last resort or last line of defense behind whitelisting, blacklisting and community.

    Hope this helps.


    Peace & Gratitude,

    Hello Cerxes,

    I stand corrected. Also, as you will note, I have updated my original post.

    sanboxie fail some massive reg test (saw in other section here) and get stuck.

    i will say go for DF os SD (DF is better) + AE. this will block them all and keep your pc run fast for ever like the day u install it.

    and for thoos who like this fdisr remark...yes after insatall windows + all driver + progs u uses.. 1 sec before u start to work , use NORTON GHOST to img your OS partition just in case...

    and for NAB no need it if u use my method. less cpu usage mate

    cheers:D

    That is a standard procedure for each ISR-software : take an image first.
    The problem with DF or SD is that an image is the ONLY way to get an unused system partition back and that is the slow way. In FDISR I have both : the ISR-way and the IB-way (DF and SD).

    Antibot does have a few issues. Going back to what I know works. Never should have removed SD anyway.
