    Neither. If you are already using Sandboxie, I don't see why you'd even need the other stuff. Nothing has bypassed Sandboxie afaik.

    I use ERP with Sandboxie for convenience. Some things are more tedious to use Sandboxed and the risk, in my opinion, of running them unsandboxed is less, so to account for those, I use ERP.

    I haven't used HitmanPro.Alert or read about what HitmanPro.Alert covers so I have no clue, I was just asking to see if you knew :D

    I say NVT ERP.

    When I use strippedmyrights in chrome the default home page is broken. Why is that?

    Back in the saddle with Win 7x64, WSA Complete, and MBAM Pro. For the second time removed Windows 8...just can't get used to it on a laptop. If I ever talk of going back, Noob...slap me!:D

    Finally shook off comodo...for now.
    Dont know why.but i feel...happier lol

    Anyways my setup.now is

    Avast free
    Threatfire (lvl 4)
    Sandboxie
    UAC
    Windows firewall

    I have google.chrome running sandboxed as well as manually running thunderbird and a few other programs sandboxed as well at times.

    I feel good with this setup:thumb: :thumb:
     
  11. Windows 7 Ultmate 32 bits (E5200 dual core at 3 GHZ with SSD + 2xHDD + NAS)

    Firewall
    1. Router for inbound filtering
    2. Windows FW with outbound filtering

    Execution control
    3. SRP: Deny execution of all files in user folders for basic users only
    4. UAC: Deny elevation (execution/installation) of unsigned binaries

    Intrusion mitigation
    5. Reduced attack surface (GPO templates, disabled 60 services), added EMET memory protection
    6. Using Chromium's internal sandbox with Google's Safe Browsing plus ABP & KeyScrambler & HitmanPro Alert

    Monthly scans
    7. HitmanPro free (manually before NAS-backup)
    8. Malicious Software Removal tool (windows update)

    Kees, you need to bold what you change. The format always makes it look like the same thing to me. I believe it is the GPO templates and services though not sure.

  13. It is nearly the same, you are right, will do that next time.

    Also played with Sandboxie to set this up for a friend who wanted something occasionally to surf through the darker side of the world wide web. Removed SBIE again after figuring out to setup the sandbox for him. Same reason I dropped media player classic (was unsigned so can't elevate), he uses media player. Now running media player with StripMyRights as Debugger and running StripMyRights as Invoker to add windows virtualisation. WIth Avast free (Rezjor silent setup) and EMET he will be fine I guess.

    Replaced Bitdefender Free Antivirus with Comodo Internet Security Premium, as I got tired of the Android ad/pop-up. I would still recommend BD Free though, as it is still a quality free AV.

    Yeah that's a good feature of WSA. Seeing any slow-down when browsing with EAM and WSA?
