Why no put it to scan only newly written and changed files? Thats how i use Avast.
I think smart screen would have stopped this unknown executable in Windows 8. Wouldn't it?
I totally agree with that. There was actually some confusion at ExploitShield thread for more than once about whether or not they protected the user using the same techniques, and ZVL actually mentioned they do not. So, I also do not understand why some still believe its either one or the other.
I'm just pointing out about Java, which he clearly states on his blog: By running Java with EMET you can prevent a ton of exploits that would have otherwise led to infection.
But, to be honest, I don't see why other users have mentioned that he (HungryMan) said it can't stop Java exploits. The post that was mentioned is about one specific exploit, and is not representative of what EMET can/can't do.
Not being able to stop all Java exploits is nothing new, actually. I remember user MrBrian did some tests quite sometime ago, and EMET wasn't able to prevent the exploit from happening. It's a mistake to believe EMET is bulletproof.
My current setup
Avira Antivirus 2013
Comodo Firewall v6
Emsisoft AntiMalware v7
Paragon B&R Compact 2012
Sandboxie (paid) thanks to a friend
Drop Avira or EAM...it's an overkill...
yeah Totally. Even Comodo firewall with it's sandbox and virtualization is overkill with sandboxie. I would choose one or the other. Emsisoft, sandboxie and shadow defender would be more than enough.
Good choice. I have been running it for awhille myself. Still testing a bunch in vm's, not finding much that I like outside of Avira and Avast at the moment.
Emsisoft is set to "Manual" startup from services.exe
i only enable it if i need bigger guns and occassionallywhen my system is in "Normal Mode" (as opposed to "Shadow Mode" where it is disabled)
Comodo Sandbox does not have the option to force sandbox Browsers/ applications of my choice, but Sandboxie (paid) has that option
and i feel Sandboxie to be much more granular and is an older and mature player than Comodo Sandbox.
my current setup uses about 900 MB RAM on idle.
Don't know why but I added Zemana pro to the mix.
You know its' features are limited in x64 OS?
I understand completely. You can though run browsers in the sandbox. It's not forced but you can put any virtualized short cut on the desktop. I'm of the same feeling. I won't be using Comodo for a while till they iron things out.
It's a good thing I'm running 32bit.
O/D Scanners-AV/AM: Avira, Malwarebyte's.
FireWall & HIPS: Online Armor(Premium), WinPatrol(Paid).
Virtu & Sandx: VMware, Shadow Defender, Sandboxie(Paid).
Encrypt: TrueCrypt, KeePass, KeyScrambler
Other: No Autorun, Hosts:MVPS.
Changed free to paid ver: Online Armor, WinPatol and Sandboxie.
I only add SpyShelter FireWall just inside few virtual systems.
Should i buy AppGuard ?! to this setup
my friend you dont need appguard and sandboxie,just with the rest you should be fine,and also you dont need winpatrol as online armor premium will protects the areas winpatrol protect and even more and also registry and files so dont even need spyshelter too,online armor and your antivirus is what you need
I know Shadow defender overall sandboxie but sometimes when i need to work with off SD better have it, any way its light and soo..powerfull security so it don't make me confusion also when i turn it both :*
I dont use together in one system OA and SpyShelterFW,
Just in Virtual XP, work like charm.
Cause OA its a bit heavy for it, make me sometimes freeze, in main system dont have this issue.
I redeemed this programs for dirt-cheap prize from mates, so expenses not touch me so much.
Any way its all looks good ?!
Although I had only been running Rising PC Doctor on my family laptop its not installed on my person netbook. So far so good everything as stable as ever. Its such a nice quiet program
Risings Cloud seems to have really expanded because all my process have already been detected as "safe" according to the cloud. No idea how good a detection rate because I dont test samples that much anymore but its all good with PCAV next to it
A bit more lighter? Cause malware can't run if it ain't executed.
On my XP system: Process Guard & Webroot
I was beginning to wonder about Zemana with x64bit. Didn't seem to be doing anything, nothing listed under 'files scanned' so I took it off.
exactly same here
a new Windows 7 x64 installation (including all updates) takes almost 1.2GB RAM on idle (in my pc)
and after installing all the other applications, softwares, 3rd party Security softwares it takes about 1.3 GB RAM on idle
so i tinker around with them (msconfig, services.exe) set the processes i don't need to disabled, the processes i need on-demand only to manual startup and the rest stays in auto startup
after this my PC takes 900 MB RAM on idle, 42 seconds bootup, 6 seconds shutdown
I do the same but not as excessively as I used to. I mostly disable services with potential security risk and not really for speed. I mean you got what at least 4GB of RAM, 0.9 vs 1.3 out of 4GB makes no difference.
