    How do you define minium, tight security?

    I rather you list your apps according to the type of threats they handle.

    Good list, but

    a) you shouldn't post programs that are (still) buggy (prevx for example)
    b) post outdated stuff (that host file for example; last update took place in 2003!)

    Analogx's script defender seems like a good program to protect against malicious scripts.

    Great stuff for those of us who are not well educated in computers.

    I notice that Wormguard is for worms, obviously, but I had assumed that AV and AT programs also detected and eliminated worms.
    Must not be so??

    I have RegDefend installed now, and have removed Prevx, Spybot S&D Resident and MJ's Registry Watcher, though for me to reccomend to do so will be a while, as I'm to new to RegDefend.

    Cheers :D

    You are better off not editing out a major change to your post, as quiite often the posts after it consequently make no sense ;) :D

    And LOL, yeah BB would have been quick off the mark and given you a ribbing ;) :D

    Cheers :D

    I would remove Registry watcher but not PrevX. I have already tweaked PrevX to stop monitoring registry and startups, but it's monitoring of file areas is still valuable.

    Hi Pollmaster .

    I have done the same . Prevx is invaluable at what it does . I was hoping , before a better understanding , that RegDefend would take it's place . Nope . But I am very happy with Prevx . Still needed with Prevx . Take care
