    Completely Happy with whats in my sig. right now:thumb:

    although I have been tossing around the idea of quihoo. something keeps driving me away though...

    EDIT* Uninstalled Comodo AV, it was running a bit too heavy for my tastes on my machine which is surprising.

    Installed Avast! again and all is light again

    Another Edit. I got tired of dealing with Comodo completely :D

    So, I've decided to go with a simple yet secure setup.

    Avast! Free Antivirus
    Sandboxie (Free)
    UAC on high

    Web Browser (Chrome), PDF's and Email Client (Thunderbird) all are run in the sandbox.

    Is there anything else I could add for another layer of unobtrusive security? (unobtrusive is something unlike ERP ect.)

    My setup has been same for months now.

    Sandboxie
    Nod32
    EMET
    OpenDNS
    and some other utilities...

    The setup is light, unobtrusive and secure. I guess I will stay with it for some time to come.

    Yes it is.
    DefenseWall and Shadow Defender make a nice strong combo.

    it would be better if it supported 64bit Systems. Sandboxie supports it so why should there be any Problems with Defensewall. I guess that there's no real further development. You can also see it on the News page on the Website...latest News are from early 2012...

    defensewall still active :) and very alive:thumb: and let's just be more patient as 64 bit arrives like pizzaa hot:thumb: ;)
     
  12. On 32 bits DW is problably the best HIPS/FW available, but let's face it J :D , when my mother of 80 is able to use DW, you wll be bored next week and tempted to try out something else. :thumb:

    Are there any plans by Ilya to Support 64bit anyway? I would purchase it in a heartbeat if it only supported 64bit OS...

    Shadow defender is great. The only thing I do is commit my download folder. Of course that sandboxed with limited access.

    that is good idea :thumb: it will be nice to also be able to have a sort of anti-executable feature within shadow defender to make it stronger

    THat is one of the supposed new features tony wants to add. Don't know if it's going to happen soon. Good idea though.
