I know, playing and trying out is fun, but was what your record stable setup?
On Windows 7 I use Sandboxie and Mamutu. It's been that way for a while now.
the one i have now in my signiture
Okay for you three days is a record time for not changing your setup
Rich problably will beat us all, he is using Anti-Executable for ages
I've been using the same for a couple years... with minor changes, allow this or that for convenience, while blocking something else to back me up due to that convenience.
XP/SP2 with NO updates
ZoneAlarm FW *
* = Older versions
3 years with current setup.
That would have to be........
DefenseWall + ShadowDefender.
(Although I do change and rearrange my setup now and then)
Applocker + Comodo Firewall
On WinXP I have been using only System Safety Monitor for a few years.
Now on Win7 my setup is in my signature. I will probably use it until I move to 64 bit.
Active@ Disk Image, Comodo Firewall, 9 on demand scanners.
purring along nicely
Sandboxie + any antivirus...
Pretty much this one with IE9 hardened through Group Policy configuration. Last night I installed Chrome w/ScriptNo plug-in.
Whats' in my signature for maybe a year now.
When you write Anti-Executable, are you referring to Faronics A-E or something else with the same name?
By the way, he [Rich] is also a Windows XP die-hard user, I guess he'll stay using XP with his boots on by April 2014...when MS pulls the plug.
Lastly, I had been on ESET NOD32 [since verision 2.7, back in 2007] plus ZA Pro firewall for the longest time, until 2010 when I switched the FW to Comodo [freeware when compared to ZA Pro]. Since then, I've been changing my main setup several times without much fanfare during the last year, looking to stabilize with something for at least 2-3 years. I will not be renewing ESET when my subscription runs out on Feb 2, this year. I believe I might as well go with something free that could be either MSE or something else.
A very close approximation of Kees safe-admin. I set every PC up that way now. I hardly ever try out new security software anymore.
Ditto. Thanks Kees. It’s quite strong and you can’t run any lighter. I’m the only one that uses this particular PC so I feel I don’t need the AV anymore. I've been wanting to go the safe-admin approach for a while but I only started recently because I was waiting for Chromes(other browsers you can’t download anything with 1806, plus you want the sandboxing) stable webrequest API for proper ad-blocking. I didn’t just want the ads hidden, I didn’t want them downloaded in the first place.
To the threads question, I’d have to say NOD32. It’s been a dear friend over the years.
wanna guess, lol
My longest seem to be ESET NOD32, Windows Firewall, DropMyRights on my browsers, MBAM as alternative scanner, back-ups via Macrium Reflect.
For the long five years of being MALWARE FREE*...
On Windows XP with very few patches and so generally not updated, I have this stable set-up for that same period of time, i.e, Classical HIPS, Sandboxing, Imaging back ups, and 2 software firewalls**.
*- Malware free for five years except during the deliberate malware testing on one instance where I disabled the Classical HIPS or deliberately allowed driver loading and low level disk access, and the executed killdisk virus messes up the MBR and the partition table.
**- Firewall A has always been preventing Firewall B from phoning home, while Firewall B preventing Firewall A from doing the same as can be seen through their logs.
Windows 7 64bit
UAC to max
Comodo Antivirus with Defense+
Windows Firewall configured to block any outgoing without a rule
Hitman Pro 64bit free
Malwarebytes antimalware free
AVG free av..........ah miss the old days...........
Current setup, probably it's been like 8 months.
Same here, Sandboxie and Mamutu along with MBAM Pro, that's my core security, the other layers change as I try different things.
edit: Mamutu, except when I'm using a HIPS. So really it's Sandboxie and MBAM that don't change, at least not in the last 2 years.
