I am trying for long time to find answers but with no success. So I decided to start this thread. This is question about getting real time protection from spyware malware. I am trying Spyware Terminator and Threatfire. ST is using over 50MB memory Threatfire 10 times less. So in this regard I like Threatfire. But I do not know if Threatfire is doing the same job as realtime antispyware which is ST (and I am not talking about ST HIPS just AS shield)? Can I use it instead of Spyware Terminator? I am using also OA free so maybe it is already doing the job as real time antispyware? I know is similar to Threatfire (both HIPS but intelligent differently) I have Avira free for antyvirus. (recently switch from NOD32). Also I am using OA free without firewall for outbound/leak protection. For inbound I am using now windows xp firewall and I am behind router with firewall (Linksys). If I will using Threathfire can I resign from ST real time? Or maybe having OA free I can resign from both Threatfire and ST real time (scanner I will like to keep, why not)?
