    Oooo...hit a nerve. You'd think you insulted his favorite "goalie"!:D :D
    I can't talk...I caught whatever trjam has....I feel compelled to switch almost weekly...bad habit. It is interesting to compare them when they are new....

    WIN XP SP2, IE 7 (tweaked) Avira security suite (customized) plus Acronis imaging setup.

    Although I'm not sure it's fair to include an imaging setup.

    For over over two years, in case of doubt or system degradation I restore an older clean image.

    Q: What is your longest stable setup?
    A: (As trjam glances at his watch) Uh...

    Seriously, for me, it had to have been before I discovered Wilders.
    Way back yonder in the ZA days when all my puters came with NAV pre-installed.
    Since then, there have been <cough> a few changes <cough>.
    Since joining Wilders, the longest I've stayed with an AV was avast for over three years.
    I've had MBAM Pro onboard for 2 years straight.
    And Acronis TI for 8 years.
    But I've never kept a full set up together for much more than a full year, if that, I don't think.
    Here are some members who ARE NOT addicted to changing their security software constantly.

    For me it was the Comodo FW/D+ & Avira AntiVir Personal combo I ran for like 5 years. FWIW, I upgraded to AntiVir Premium and it ran just as well. That was my favorite real-time AV setup ever. Just that, Firefox w/NS, CS, ABP, ect... Ixquick & safe habits and I was fine.

    This setup is just an extension of that one, and I still haven't been infected. I added Sandboxie, then ditched my real-time AV. Feel just as safe, if not safer, and I've ever enjoyed a lighter system footprint.

    I wanted to bring up an analogy related to people who...APPARENTLY [but not always true], change their setup constantly.

    You go to a dealership and buy, let's say a Toyota Camry 2012 by making a 60-months car loan. This is your official car for you to go to work and ride your family [wife & kids] during the weekends.

    Let's say you see a Nissan Altima 2012 and you fall in love with that car but...you cannot afford it because you already purchased the Camry and are trying make the ends meet while making payments for the Camry. But...wait! you could go to a rent-car service like Enterprise Rent-a-car and rent that Nissan Altima for two days and drive it. Not commitments with this car because after a cuple of days, you can return it to the rent-car company, while you keep your Camry.


    The same goes to people that use, let's say... ESET, they have 5+ years subscriptions still running and they wouldn't leave ESET for all the gold of the world, but they would like to “test drive” other AVs just for fun.


    Bottom line, the way I see it: Those people don't and wouldn't change their setup but love to test software. However, some users here believe those people change their AVs whenever AV-Test.org or AV-Comparatives release new detection results. LOL :D

    It was great for the time.

    I seem to go with 5 year plans as I used Norton Av for 5 and Eset after that for another 5. Used ZA with both before incorporating a router.

    Same here. FD-ISR combined with my myriad of various seemingly outdated security apps along with some newer releases of mostly formidable deep probe defense apps, is kept most of my active & inactive systems as pristine as i would have ever imagined they could be for as long as they have.

    The latest newest addition i am really pleased with and tested with KillDisk & StealthMBR HDD Partition killer is NPMBRGuard.

    BTW, in event those of us who tamper with dangerously destructive virus/MBR killers as a hobby or profession, a little tidbit: If you kill yuour Partition, remember that the long standing app TestDisk will re-write that RAW disk back to normal after a KillDisk release either intentionally or by accident. :eek:
