    Yes, a few here and there, but avast! either picked up the threat, or it just ran in Sandboxie, without effecting the system.

    K9 plays a big role though, it does a pretty darn good job at blocking malware links.

    Nothing to worry about unless you have 10 years old PC.

    I turned off EXE Radar Pro and I'm trying out AppLocker again. I used it for a while before but ran into issues. I saw one of Watt's posts about using task scheduler to create AppLocker alerts and I think this should help out a lot. We'll see how it goes.

    Exactly what I've done recently. By these alerts I found out that AL was blocking some apps and it was the reason that OS was freezing at shutdown/hibernation. To view the logs I created filter in the Event Viewer (you can export it as well as the task sheduler alert task) for ID 8004-8007 to simplify examining logs.

    Windows 8 Pro 64bit
    DD-WRT Router - no wifi
    OA Premium + EAM
    Appguard on Lockdown
    Sandboxie
    Firefox with Lastpass, NoScript, WOT (block all unknown/poorly rated sites), Adblock Plus, Flash is my only plugin.
    OpenDNS

    Would EMET/VoodooShield/EXE Radar pro be of any use to me? I'm under the impression from looking around that Appguard does what EMET does but I have no idea if the other two would be worthwhile.
