    At the moment I am running MBAM Pro and Avast with File and Network shields real-time. I will probably try Avira next, see if that is as light. What would be one good second real-time program to run with a light AV and Sandboxie that might fill some security gaps? Mamutu and MBAM Pro are at the top of my list so far. Anything else I should look at? Thanks for any ideas.

    Prevx runs well on x64 windows.

    +1 for Prevx as it runs light with either Avast or Avira. If you are running Windows 7 Ultimate try implementing applocker. Try to lock down your computer with as much built in security as you feel comfortable.

    About the only real time issue I could see would be making sure your online browsing is safe from data theft (maybe Prevx Safe Online freebie promo from Facebook would fill that gap?). There may be some other online security tools like that available. I had issues with PSO and Chrome though.

    Otherwise, seriously, you have Windows 7, 64 bit and running a high quality av and sandboxie. If something gets through that combo then you are just bound and determined to get infected. Have a couple on demand scanners and something to protect against keyloggers, man-in-the-middle attacks, etc and you are set.

    Thanks for the suggestions. There were a few problems with Prevx SO on my system. I don't have 7 Ultimate, so can't use AppLocker. Wonder if Mamutu or MBAM would protect against the keyloggers and man-in-middle attacks? If not, what would?
