    Hello,
    Does anyone have first-hand experience with these?
    I'm testing all three right now. So far, SecureIt looks like a tool that combines several things that an experienced user can pull - like disabling of various unnecessary services, closing of worm ports etc. I have also tried DropMyRights, so I'm wondering if perhaps one or the other are a bit redundant. HardenIt seems to me more like a tool for someone running a webserver. I'm also trying proxo, seems a nice little app, the question is can it also prevent potential malware from loading and like ...
    Any suggestions? Comments? Useful extra tips and tweaks?
    Thanks all,
    Mrk

    Proxomitron! Sounds like a medicine.
