    Will this keep my security lightweight?

    Yes you won't even notice.

    Now I'm running WSA 2014, windows firewall control and the 2 above. For now there is an incompatibility between WSA and MB AE but will be fixed soon.

    If you want to add more maybe an antiexecutable would help, but I see them a little bit useless if you are an experienced user.

    Are you running Panda with or without the URL filter?

    If running with the URL filter, is it working for you?

    Actually it is not known if MBAE is better then EMET 4.0. You must consider that MBAE is in the beta stage still.

    If you can learn how to handle HIPS, replace tinyfirewall with Online Armor FREE. And don't forget to disable Windows Firewall.

    And, Panda Could is at its best only when you're online.

    With URL filter, have not seen it popup. Are you having problems with it?

    Seeing that tinyfirewall uses the windows firewall, I feel that it is quite light on my system. Will online armor decrease my performance? Haven't used it in ages. Still remember when I used it with Emisoft anti malware.

    I would prefer comodo since is develop more actively. But with both there will be a difference although I don't think you can notice it, except for the boot-up time.

    I would recommend to remove tinyfirewall and install either some anti-malware like malwarebytes pro and/or anti-executable like appguard/exe radar pro. In my opinion windows firewall is good and you dont need an outbound protection. And since I have used tinyfirewall I found it to be a pain to allow internet access for every other program I use manually. I dont recommend MBAE now as its in beta stage and I have seen several posts about conflicts with other products and you do not want to hook up with a product which you do not know if it will be provided free of charge or licensed per year. Nevertheless if you dont mind paying and supporting the provider you can use it.

    Yet again thank you everyone (damn I love this community!) :D :D

    I have found that tinyfirewall is of no use to me. I tried to switch to Online armor, but it bugged out and restarted my explorer the whole time.

    I also tried Privatefirewall, and it also bugged out. When I went back to a restore point, my Panda Cloud was going nuts. It really wasn't going well... :'(

    I have removed Panda and is going to try something els. Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I have also removed MBAE, and Hitmanpro alert.

    This thread can now be closed.

    Conclusion you are now worse than when you started :D

    If you still accept an advice and assuming that you only want free products, try:

    Comodo FW, deactivate the HIPS and sandbox if you want.
    Hitman Pro Alert
    Bitdefender Traffic light browser addon only
    A free AV of your choice, Panda, Avast, Bitdefender...

    PD: windows firewall control is what you need (popups based on windows firewall) but it cost 10$ I think.

    Hey great minds think alike!

    Now running Bitdefender free and Comodo firewall with HIPS and sandbox.
    Browser = Firefox with HTTPS everywhere and Ghostery (I am already running Bitdefender, so I already have their web protection)
    so far so good :thumb: :thumb:
