    Just to say...(on my first post) what an excellent forum this is and it is interesting to know what others use for security, and there has been some fantastic feedback on this subject!

    Back to the original topic:

    I currently use:

    Kaspersky anti-virus
    Windows (XP) Firewall

    On Demand:

    C.Cleaner
    Eusing Registry Cleaner
    Advanced Windows care 2
    Auslogics Disk Defragment
    Auslogics Registry Defragment


    Kaspersky is a good anti-virus but it hogs your PC down quite a bit...and has created problems with XP not recognizing it. (ie...constant reminders that i have no anti-virus installed/and or switched off at the start-up)

    I will be doing a complete XP installation in the next week or so and i will be changing my security.

    Avira anti-virus
    Armour (free edition) Firewall
    Spybot real time (tea-time) protecion

    Manual:

    Superantispyware
    WindowsCare2
    Win Patrol
    Spyware Blaster
    C.cleaner

    I don't use IE either. Roboform works just fine with Firefox and an add on. Are you saying that Roboform would not work if IE was removed from the OS ?

    Played with a few setups,

    But XP firewall, DefenseWall with added resource protection on Registry and ThreatFire with oubound warning custom rule really do the job

    A few experimental changes :

    1. Firefox v2.0.0.14 has now a new extension, called "Delicious Bookmarks" to support the system/data split technology.
    2. Firefox is now double sandboxed by DefenseWall HIPS v2.40 and Sandboxie v3.26 in a frozen system to improve security.
    Not sure if it all will work together, but time will prove.

    Plans for the near future : Faronics Anti-Executable Standard v3

    don't understand how delicious bookmarks "supports system/data split technology" ? looks like a good book mark program but nothing more. Is there some special feature I can't see ? Have you tried Roboform ? not only handles passwords and profiles but can add all favorites or bookmarks - protected or unprotected. Good to have everything within one program.

    Delicious Bookmarks or other similar extensions like Foxmarks let you store your bookmarks on their server. You don't need bother to keep backing up the bookmarks file. Just update the copy on the server.

    You can also download your bookmarks to any Firefox (that has the extension).

    When you separate system and data and use a frozen system, your bookmarks are a problem. You can store them as usual, but after reboot they are gone.
    There are several ways to solve this, but Delicious Bookmarks looks like the most easy and convenient way to keep your bookmarks, instead of storing them in an unfrozen partition or in a excluded folder in the frozen partition.
    The expression "supports system/data split technology" is more a joke than serious, but with Delicious Bookmarks you can avoid to store your bookmarks in a data partition, while your Firefox can be installed completely on the system partition.
    I hope I explained it well, because explaining more complex things in English isn't my strength.

    Thanks - now I can see. I have moved the firefox profile to D: using
    firefox.exe -ProfileManager. I can see how leaving the profile on C: would help but then perhaps there would be problems with NoScript and Adblock plus

    Too many HD's with different combos so nothing can ever foul up my configs again. LoL

    This latest is Comodo Memory Guardian w/ also Comodo D+ newest version, and as always since it's liteweight EQS 4.0 beta with Alcyon's Rules.

    SandboxIE latest version with Returnil and on top of all this DEEP FREEZE standard.

    Thinking about adding Anti-Executable too, but will see how this set up handles some malware samples thrown at it.

    I consider this set up my Armor Plated config
