    Thanks. Could be pretty useful, might give that a try too at some point. Most the time a normal AV would catch anything executed from USB's though right?

    Not always, but it also depends on what you're using or if you feel you need that little extra.

    You can use Sandboxie to navigate to your USB drive by using a sandboxed Windows Explorer if you are using the free version or force the USB drive for files in it to run sandboxed automatically, if you are using the paid version. Either way works great and its more reliable to protect yourself than relying on a AV that at best, "most of the time" it will catch malware.

    Use sbie and HMP in the meantime. They're free and offers awesome protection. You'll not need anything else.;)

    And that anything could also pass through MCShield you know.;) What you are doing is only increasing the chance of catching and blocking malware by adding an additional MCShield. But what we need to consider here imo is that the percentage in increase. With all the protection CIS offers like HIPS and sandboxing, the percentage increase is tiny. And when you consider the fact that we all here have accustomed ourselves to being so careful in web surfing thanks to Wilders Forum, and that we now rarely catch any malware in that matter those strong new malware that AV Labs are testing continuously(God knows where they find those!) just makes that tiny percentage increase inconsiderable.

    It is a great tool that can be used in many forms, for example, to navigate to files that are downloaded from the internet, to open USB sticks from other people or to open an attachment that one of our careless friends send us. If I was using the free version, I would use a sandboxed Windows explorer every day.

    I have Hitman Pro and its clean here.Couple things noted in your screen shots.one Deep Freeze New Version is 7.50.020.4100 and secondly I am not so sure what you have of DeepFreez but something looks fake or off going by screen shots you posted.

    I marked what looks off here..

    Comodo Internet Security Premium has replaced DefenseWall permanently here. I have had as good of protection and system is very smooth and everything just keeps working. No complaints from wife and kids and that really sets it apart.

    Was defensewall giving you any problems? It's usually pretty silent and hassle free. Also how is K9 web? I so a few reviews and it seemed to block a ton of malware links.

    Made two changes to my setup:

    1. Removed NOD32 as real-time antivirus and added ESET Online Scanner for monthly on demand scan.

    2. Set up RAM disk and moved Sandboxie's container to new virtual disk.
