    Hi,
    Would Outpost Security Suite with Malwarebytes' Antimalware for realtime protection be enough?

    Yes. Add sandboxie into the mix and what you will have is what I call windows peace of mind. :D

    And various online scanners. I recommend making a Panda ActiveScan account.

    So will outpost security suite alone.If you know what HIPS is warning you in case something was not detected by malware scanner,one more realtime scanner like MBAM is not useful.
    On demand yes it probably is.

    Personally, I would say no.

    Not sure what technology / engine Outpost uses, but there are loads of great AVs out there such as KAV, Norton, Avira etc - why take a risk on Outpost?

    If you are using a WiFi connection and a NAT router, just use Windows Firewall. If using Vista, the firewall is very good - and if you want a bit of manual control over it just use this http://www.sphinx-soft.com/Vista/index.html - its free and is just adds a GUI.

    I would not use MBAM as a paid piece of software - best just to use it as a free malware removal tool if - in the unlikley event yout AV cant help you - MBAM is okay for removing a small range of things like the fake AVs that some people get stuck with.

    If you want a seperate AM scanner, try A Squared - as it is also a full AV as well and has HIPS built in.

    Thanks for the replies,

    :) Very different opinions :)

    I decided to give it a try though, OSS en MBAM realtime. Running it for a view days now: very low resources, no disturbing popups. Seems to run fine.
