    Good going.:thumb: I think you've tried enough apps. There's just no new apps/app versions for you right now. Settling with defensewall until new versions or new apps come out seems to be a good idea.;)

    jmonge settling in? Say it ain't so! I always enjoy seeing what he's come up with next. Though the same thing seems to be happening to me, not much has changed in the last few months. Getting the itch to shake things up again. Sandboxie and WSA are pretty good together, but I just learned about a conflict where Sandboxie prevents WSA from protecting the browser. Will have to think about that, but Sandboxie sure isn't going anywhere.

    Great Feynman quote Amit, something to live by. Some good Feynman videos on youtube. I watched one a few days ago where he was really enthusiastic about what's happening on the atomic level in rubber bands.

    Sure they are.....if you don't mind telling the world what you do, and then becoming part of global data mining....the way I see it, it aint none of their business....and it gets worse....

    You know, I was thinking about ditching my current setup (Sandboxie + an on demand scanner) for something like this or a Kees setup. I actually have a lot of this already, but I don't quite have all of the hardening. I do have one question and that is why did you choose to use a standard account instead of an admin account since you have UAC at max? Also, why only MBAM for a scanner and not something like HMP?

    This is the stance I've been taking all these years, so what about it are they or are they not harmful. If they aren't we could change that setting in Firefox to allow 3rd party cookies, maybe what we should do is start a new thread where we can put everything on the table.. :D

    Thanks..

    Cookies are not viruses and cannot cause direct damage to your computer in any way, but they may record your browsing habits.If your paranoid about the places you visit,fine delete your cookies,at the end of the day,cookies are harmless - period.

    From a very privacy oriented person, cookies are more or less harmless. In Firefox just disallow 3'rd party cookies and set Firefox to delete them when closed. You won't loose much privacy with them, only maybe a little with flash cookies but if you have Firefox set to delete when closed you can just close and re-open Firefox whenever you like or change your browsing habits. You are at a much bigger risk with many other things first.

    Well, you clearly have to pay more attention to stay up to date with trjam's avatars. :D Just saying .. you seem to have missed at least Defender's castle and who knows what else. :D

    Trjam is sort of the living manifestion of the proverb "The only thing constant in life is change" and I like him very much for reminding us every day. ;)

    Actually,I have ran into some people who say even common sense cant protect them against exploits and I tell you what It can...If you dont know where you click you are obviously tend to run into exploits.And people who say this never mentioned to me what they were looking for when they got hit.You know why because these things they look for are 90% porn stuff :D

    And if you do run into them,the best way is CTRL+ALT+DEL and terminate the browser.Simple solution: NoScript. :D
