    On my main PC I added Shadow Defender 376. Just checking how long my PC can go smooth in Shadow Mode for all drives. With 346 it was 5 days. Though of course it depends on intensity of usage.

    What do you mean "Pc can go smooth" Does it's effectiveness fluctuate? :)

    No its effectiveness does not fluctuate. PC becomes less responsive when, as I understand it, SD cash in RAM got filled and it started to write changes into the HD.

    Sure, no doubt. The most fun is not to forget to commit the files you need to keep after leaving the shadow mode.

    Been busy working this winter so trying to find satisfactory Windows 8 X64 apps for that platform. My XP units enjoy a virtual library of solid security programs but not so for Win 8 just yet.

    So far with Win8 x64 i run Shadow Defender + Sandboxie + a toss up between Comodo fw and PrivateFireWall. No AV yet but may consider Avast again. I miss a good solid HIPS like the ones XP has so many of to choose from.

    Not completely sold on 8 and might not ever be given all the attention XP enjoyed with security app developments by the hundreds to choose from.

    I must say that I like how quickly my PC with XP boots now. I uninstalled CIS, ERP and Eusing Maze Lock and installed my old favorite - DefenceWall PF as the only security app there.

    Here is my security setup. It hasn't changed much in last few months.

    System configuration and hardening:
    Operating system: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 bit
    User Account Control: I have set UAC control on 'Always notify'. All changes to my computer need administrator aproval.
    Autorun / Autoplay: This feature is disabled. Everything that needs to be run is run manually.
    Services: All unnecessary services are disabled. Some services have startup type changed from "Automatic" to "Manual" and are run on-demand.
    Windows 7 features: Unnecessary and unused Windows features are turned off.
    User Accounts: Built-in Administrator and Guest accounts are disabled.
    Logon: Secure Logon is turned on. It prevents other programs from intercepting my login credentials.

    Network security:
    Router: Whole network is behind router with SPI firewall. Unsolicited inbound connections are blocked. Router has access from Wan and UPnP disabled.
    Wireless: Wireless access to network is secured with strong password. WPA2-PSK EAS encryption is used.
    Firewall: Windows 7 built-in firewall is enabled and blocks unsolicited inbound connections. Outbound connections are not monitored.

    System and applications security:
    Sandboxie: Chrome and IE are always run in seperate sandoxes. This is how SBIE is set:
    - immediate recovery to download folder is enabled
    - content of sandbox is deleted when the last sandboxed program ends
    - only specified programs can start and run in sandboxes
    - browsers are run with dropped rights
    - browsers have blocked access to personal data
    - browsers have direct access only to bookmarks
    ESET Nod32 AV: Nod is protecting my system from malware. It is monitoring my system partition, Outlook database and http traffic.

    Data security:
    Acronis True Image: System image is created once a week to another HDD.
    Keepass: All logins are stored in password protected database. Unique password is used for each login.
    Truecrypt: All sensitive data is stored in password protected encrypted conatiner.
    CCleaner: MRUs, temporary files and other junk files are deleted at least once a day.
    Recuva: It is used to recover accidently deleted files and wipe deleted files from non SSD drive.

    Internet security and privacy:
    Chrome: Third-party cookies and all pop-ups are blocked.
    Adblock Plus: ABP extension makes my internet experience clean. Easylist and Fanboy's list are enabled.
    OpenDNS: OpenDNS provides reliable internet connection and protects from phishing websites.
    Other mitigations: No Java installed. No Flash for IE. Chrome PPAPI Flash plugin is enabled.

    Online banking security:
    Banking environment: All banking is conducted in sandboxed Chrome after previous browsing session is closed, all sandboxed processes are ended and all data in sandbox is deleted.
    Paypal: Only payments through Paypal for online purcheses are used. No online merchant gets my credit card information.

    On-demand scanning:
    Emsisoft Emergency Kit: Once a week smart scan is run.
    VirusTotal Uploader: Uploader is used for upload and scan of individual files on online service's site.

    Updating:
    Windows Update: Windows update is used to update system and other software from Microsoft.
    Secunia PSI: Scan is run once a week to check for security updates for my system and applications.

    Other security related tools:
    Virtualbox: Virtualbox provides me virtual environment for testing purposes.
    Autoruns: Autoruns is run once a week to check all startup items.
    Process Explorer: It is used as replacement for Windows Task Manager.

    The most important software in my setup is Sandboxie. All other software only complements it's protections.

    Most of the software is run on demand and uses no system resources (only some hard disk space).
