    Mine is fairly simple and runs very light on my system:
    WRSA-E (Webroot Secure Anywhere Essentials)
    WFC (Binisoft Windows Firewall Control)
    AppGuard (BlueRidge Networks)
    SpyShelter Premium
    EMET (Microsoft)
    KeyScrambler premium (QFX Software)
    OpenDNSCrypt
    Toolwiz TimeFreeze
    Image for Windows/DOS/Linux (TeraByte Unlimited)
    For browsing I use IE9 with Fanboys TPL's and AdMuncher.
    I use this set up on all my machines, Vista and Win 7, both 32 and 64 bit.

    While SANDBOXIE installed easily and smoothly enough and worked fine on my WINDOWS XP machine, I have had no such luck with SANDBOXIE once I upgraded my computer to WIN 7 X64. I tried installing SANDBOXIE twice on my WIN 7 X64 PRO machine after SANDBOXIE was supposedly and specifically revamped to be compatible with the X64 WINDOWS OS, and it made a mess of my system both times. I had to reformat my computer each time. I am done with it.

    I wish to add (re: my post supra) that I did in fact attempt to install the correct version of SANDBOXIE (namely, the 64BIT VERSION) on my WIN 7 X64 PRO machine. My computer was still destroyed.

    Let me explain a bit further. I attempted to install and use the 64Bit Version of SANDBOXIE at two different points in time, several months apart, as the developer was and is constantly refining the program, as he explains on his website. Apparently, the "MS OS 64BIT KERNEL PATCH PROTECTION," at least on my system, did not wish and does not wish to play ball with SANDBOXIE regardless of the innovations and desire for compatibility on the part of the developer. There's nothing funny about that from my vantage point. I really wanted to use the program -- obviously too much. And, I paid the price for my enthusiasm -- "twice," as you point out with relish. That the program works for you and for many others with 64bit systems -- well, I am happy for you.

    Is there a special reason why you're still using IE8? IE9 came out quite sometime ago, in case you're not aware. :) I think you should have received an optional IE9 update via Windows Update.

    Yes, IE8 is faster on my laptop than IE9. Im running 1.5 Ghz single core AMD Fusion and IE9 requires more CPU power to run smoothly. Also I like IE8 theme much better :)

    That's all, nothing overboard but works nicely together.
