    I think most of the commercial antiviruses like Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Avira, Avast, Emsisoft etc etc are more than enough to keep a user protected
    if coupled with a capable firewall and good user habits.
    Most of the cases users get infected by a malware which the AV has already flagged for him, but the user ignores it thinking it to be False Positive :)

    I use Avira+ Comodo myself, which is considered to be a very weak combo by many in this forum,
    However i never do actually get infected as i restore and backup very very frequently(once every month) and use Sandboxie for browsing.

    i think so too :D

    btw, it is very light, to lighten it more i could remove Mamutu, but i will let it like this for a while, just to see.

    guest, I have a question for you because you are the king or at least prince of getting combos that include companion AV's to work together. My primary security setup has been Comodo FW 6.0 along with Norton AV 2012. After my Norton license expired I purchased WSA to run along side the Comodo firewall. I have followed your guide to the letter but after installing WSA, Comodo takes 2 or 3 minutes to boot up and then opening any browser is impossible. Any ideas? I have no other security apps installed and my rig is more than capable of running this combo. I am not using any old configurations for Comodo either. Posted this on the Comodo forums but no solutions yet. Thanks!

    yes, after more than 15 years with paranoid configs and without getting any infections, i want to try a more "light and extra-responsive" combo ^^

    i just need a good extremely light Firewall, i checked many of them and none satisfies me totally for the moment. So i stick with Windows Firewall + WSA outbound one.

    if someone has an idea, i am open to testing :D (i like lot of tweaks/options, very very light, at least a correctly designed GUI, i am on win8 x64)

    i tried:

    - Privatefirewall
    - Comodo FW
    - Online Armor Premium
    - Spyshelter Firewall
    - Zone Alarm free
    - Windows Firewall Control


    I also wait for Defensewall x64...

    Unfortunately I also run just Appguard at the Moment because I haven't found out yet why Deepfreeze always interfered with my 3TB harddrive.

    The Support told me that I should try to Mount the HDD as an ntfs Folder but that didn't work for me as well. I couldn't even Access the HDD while in frozen mode.

    Also my other external 1TB HDD always goes nuts when starting the Computer. It always disappears and then reappears in seconds in the Computer...

    Faronics really should do something about this. Even for Version 7.5 they advertised that they Support HDD's larger than 2TB...:thumbd:

    ESET(Great AV) + SpyShelter Firewall(Great "anti-everything else)" + Sandboxie(because I do like it)

    Not even one problem since I got this awesome combo(December 2012)
