    Out of curiosity, How much memory does it use?

    and...

    How many processes does Kaspersky Internet Security have?

    Do you like it so far?

    TyRidian if I were choosing what to run just from what's on your list, I'd go with Sandboxie and Avast.

    I've added TrafficLight for another try. edit: That didn't last long. Must have been a conflict, maybe with DNTMe finding trackers, there were big slowdowns at times.

    Windows 7 x32 Home Edition.

    Browser (Chrome) sandboxed by GeSWall Free, only allowing full access to download directory, redirecting everything else (virtualise like sandboxie only twice as fast and free without first startup delay). Set an ACL deny execute file/traverse folder for Everyone on this download directory. When copying a file out of this folder, it loses the GW icon and I am able to install it.

    Added all user programs (w.g. word, PDF-reader, etc) to the e-mail and browser group of ThreatFire. Added a rule for this group to warn for write access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and Windows/Program Files directories (Kees1958 tip). Activated the outbound firewall rule. Set TF to sensitivity level to 4 (and create restore before quarantaine)

    Added EMET4 to all programs via XML-list import, added my banking sites to use Verisign Root's for pinning with Chrome (Boerenkoolmetworst tip). Set UAC to silently elevate to admin and deny elevation of unsigned executables (UAC is now a silent safety net behind TF's email/browser group rule and browser benefits from low intergity level mechanism).

    Hitman Pro Free on demand scan. Using AdBlockPlus, New Tab redirect, KISS Privacy and TrafficLight as extensions for Chrome

    Both ThreatFire and GeSWall are abandoned, the market share for malware is not interesting, security through obscurity bonus :argh:

    I say CIS v 5.10 + Sandboxie Paid. Disable the sandbox in CIS's D+. Or if you want to use another AV go with FW/D+ only, not the full CIS. But I wouldn't do that as it's potential conflict and more resources. And if those other layers are properly deployed you won't need it anyhow. Just something like VT Hash Check to hit up files quickly before recovering them from a sandbox. Far more resource friendly/economical, not to mention more comprehensive, as you won't find a def/sig database like that in any single real-time AV.

    And throw in full scans from Hitman Pro & MBAM Free once in awhile.

    Just my 2 sense...

    First option, as lucid said, disable the sandbox in Comodo. :D

    Some might think a seasoned pro like me would have precious little difficulty setting up the most basic of configs in security software. I normally am pretty good at winging it first then studying the manual later in case i missed a setting or two.

    Trialing the HIPS popular Outpost 8.1FW. It threw a curve while attempting to granulate the HKCR branch to alert on changes/renaming file extensions. I was about to throw in the towel until i finally landed on the right screen to set to PROMPT.

    That just may have sealed the deal for me in my final preference for a really nice HIPS to offset and compliment the recent addition of Qihoo 360 Security AV. That is if they prove out to safely cohabit together without some surprise friction between them.:

    It would be my ideal Dream Team security setup finally realized for this windows 8 x64 creation courtesy MS ink. LoL
    ,
    Still examining behavior and normal tasks for complete determination all is safely functional or not.

    Given those two powerhouses and add to that Shadow Defender & Sandboxie and the field circle is all but complete to this new iron shield. The only remaining section to seal this ring of iron is AX64 Time Machine for instant recovery and rescue provisions.

    So whatta ya think good people. In your own local experiences and endless efforts to achieve and prove your own ideal security theory to meet with your complete satisfaction, is this one on the right track you think?

    I'm currently giving this a go on my test machine.

    Panda Cloud Antivirus 2.2 + Phishing Filter
    Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 8.1
    Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit
    WOT Extension

    So far, I haven't seen anyone use this combo before

    I'll throw some malware at it sometime today, I'll come back to let everyone know how it went.

    Out of curiosity how do you like Outpost's Pro 8.1 new release. So far with me it's working almost too good to be true but by golly it's conduct is nothing less then stellar from my experience with it on Windows 8 so far and lite as can be even while sharing the stage with 360 AntiVirus running resident. I almost can't believe how smooth it's all running together while doing their normal security protection.

    As a HIPS fanatic i find OP best of any we have to choose from. Definitely some real effort went into this release or else I'm just geeked. because of my HIPS drought for so long since coming away from XP Pro.

    The new release is much more improved than previous versions, running smooth here as well...even on my testing machine.

    If it continues to impress me, I just might go back to it on my actual setup.
