    Hi,

    What do you think about my security under vista business 32 bits ?

    Running Webroot Secure Anywhere, Hitman Pro (paid license), Mamutu and Shadow Defender, UAC and DEP enabled.

    As Mamutu license is almost expired, I'd like to replace with another program.

    Looking for a light program on memory, I'm hesitated between :


    Emsisoft Antimalware
    Novirus thanks exe radar pro,
    OSSS Security Suite
    Appguard,
    EMET
    Malware Defender


    Thanks in advance !

    you already have a good set up.

    but if you are willing to try all of the option, just go with trial version and find what really suit your need,
    have FUN! :D

    ps: EMET are free and good additional for whatever set up you choose.

    You don't need Mamutu since you already got WSA :thumb:

    Adding Defensewall & EMET to your existing Shadow Defender would make your setup really strong. I wouldn't even bother with WSA or Mamutu after that... jmo. The only other thing I'd add is an imaging program like Macrium Reflect, unless you like the native one. And maybe another on demand scanner (MalwareBytes).

    If you are looking for program that is light on memory you can try Malware Defender. MD is different kind of HIPS than Mamutu. Mamutu is behavior blocker, MD is classical HIPS and you will have to make all rules by yourself.
    You can add EMET no matter what you choose for your HIPS solution.
    I did not try other apps you've mentioned, so I can't give you recommendation.

    Webrootsecure anywhere has a behavioral blocker. So DON"T replace Mamutu

    Have a look at EMET 2.1. With your Vista Business version, you could run all your internet facing software as Limited User (enter secpol.msc), so they will be contained in Limited User box for ever (and never elevate through UAC).

    Think of the protection levels you have got
    1) Shadow Defender (disk virtualisation)
    2) UAC (and when you know how add EMET 2.1 and Software Restriction Run as Basic user for your e-mail, webbrowser and mediaplayers) as policy containment as part of the VISTA OS
    3) WebrootSecure Anywhere has a behavioral blocker + AV + secure browsing feature + FireWall

    For me one of the above three would be sufficient (with on demand scan of HMP), so your "lean" setup is "mean" enough to any malware
