    after a good talk with windows_security, I realized that I have a very little knowledge for HIPS.
    since a little knowledge is dangerous thing, so I decide to stop using HIPS for the foreseeable future.

    spyshelter deleted ;)

    But..., can't you learn about it? I also don't know much about HIPS but I decided to try them anyway. Some of them provide help files to give you a better understanding about their features. Besides, many HIPS nowadays are dumbed-down so you won't see many popups from Windows' processes and common 3rd party programs. Well, I know you're the final judge, so forgive me if I sound patronizing. :blink:

    I added Sandboxie. Browsers in CIS sandbox are sometimes unstable. Moreover I like the autodelete of SBIE. Curious thing: EMET doesn't protect Sandboxied browsers though it covers them in CIS sandbox.

    Running avast free, sandboxie and UAC

    Im running all "sensitive" apps through sandboxie (chrome, thunderbird, WMP, adobe reader)

    im going for a as streamlined, secured and popup agnostic setup as i can.

    My question now to you guys is, is this enough?

    IMO, that's enough even for high risk users.

    Nice choice. :thumb:

    Hi Solarlynx, do you have any compatibility issues between cis and EMET 4?

    On my PC with Win7 x32 - EMET at max settings with - no problems at all.

    On my PC with Win7 x64 - after several attempts I figured out that with EMET at "custom" (DEP optout and some other tunning) - or maybe by some other mysterious reason - EMET and CIS get along quite well

    On both PC CIS is in max (HIPS from Clear to Paranoid, AutoSandbox - FV or OFF, Custom, verbouse alerts etc)

    No.
    Out of curiosity I've just tried to make my browser run in both - it runs only in SBIE.
    SBIE beats both EMET and CIS on my PC. LOL. :)

    You are welcome.
    Honestly, I'm surprised that this time EMET is OK for the whole week on my Win-7 x64 with CIS. At all previous attempts it took a couple of hours that CIS or even OS became laggish or irresponsive with EMET.

    BTW I don't know if it'll help you, now the settings for EMET on my PC with Win-7 x64:
    Early warning - off
    Skin - Emet dark style (lol)
    DEP, SEHOP - OptOut
    ASLR - OptIn
    Certificate trust (pinning) - disabled

    apps:
    Default action - stop on exploit (obviously)
    Mitigation settings - (Deep hooks etc) - all three unchecked

    I didn't cover any system process in the apps list
