    Do you plan on running an AV? You have some good options there, but the only AV you have listed is the AV included with OA++. It uses Ikarus as the AV with asquared's malware engine included. From your list of options i would personally use OA Premium with an AV like NOD 32, Avira or another good AV of your choice. I'm not sure that OA++ scans POP, or SMTP. I'm checking now what protocols it scans. I seem to remember reading something about. Maybe someone else here would know without looking it up. You could also use DefenseWall or Comodo with your choice of AV. No matter which you choice i would use Prevx in combination with your Firewall, and AV. Hitman pro is alway a good on-demand scanner you could use with any combination of security setup. I use Hitman Pro, Emsisoft's emergency kit, and Malwarebytes as on-demand scanners.

    I'll probably keep sticking to Comodo. Comodo 5 is amazing. If Comodo was a person I would propose to it, that's how amazing it is.

    I've been thinking about buying PrevX, though. I'll also keep an eye on how Avast! progresses and think about switching to that for Anti virus if they work on their behavior shield.

    you see if you have comodo full you dont really need prevx:D believe it or not i tested both program comodo antivirus and prevx with same malware and comodo blocked more malware than prevx;),so why buying prevx when comodo has alot more to offer man:D maybe i am going to get in trouble for saying this:D :D

    As I now have running, I will keep the same as it has proven perfect for my system and has stopped anything nasty from getting through.
    ESET Smart Security and IObit 360(free) as my active workers. They work very well together and cause little or no drain on my system.
    I really like HitmanPRO and SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebites in line for manual scans.

    My only wish for you jmonge is for you to travel to the Linux world and experience what it is like. So, your 2011 computer security resolution should be to use Linux for at least a year and see if you would ever go back to Windows. ;)

    Thanks.

    Well I have no plans on changing AV and firewall.

    I do plan on trying some new software such as Ad-Aware, PC Tools Spyware Doctor, SpySweeper 7 whenever it comes out, and tons of other programs for fun but most likely unless they are very good I will just stay with my current setup.

    I think jmonge posts about 7-9 posts a day, every day, 365 days a year, for over two years. Wow I'm impressed. For the emoticons, I'm lost for words over half a million. Outstanding.

    Thanks.
