    When my ESET NOD32 3 PC license comes up for renewal in September, I will most likely stick with ESET NOD32.

    I just ordered the 3 PC ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 5 from NewEgg for $19.99.

    Yup. That's what I did. No EMET for me since version 2.1.

    How much work is it to save files to the real hard drive. I thought that I read somewhere that Shadow Defender was easier at doing this than Deep Freeze.

    I have EMET 4.0 on my 2 PC. Win7 x32 is OK with it even at max for every EMET setting, Win7 x64 never was completely OK with it. Maybe it's generic for all x64 OSes?

    Jmonge, Does deep freeze still have an issue protecting the MBR? I know there was an old test with SD and deep freeze and returnil. SD was the only one that stopped the rootkit after reboot.

    Got BSOD today. Not sure if it's because of EMET or AX64, or the combination of both. It was fine before I installed those two. Speaking of EMET...

    Indeed, I also used the most secure mitigation setups except for pinning (it was disabled). I didn't get problems when I was on 32-bit as well IIRC. Hmmm... :doubt:

    I haven't had any problems here on Win7 x64 with EMET at max settings.

  18. Changed setup of mother's (nearly 80) PC, XP Pro with SRP deny for all except temp folder. Replaced Avast free by free F-secure basic from Dutch ISP. Decided to use Defense Wall in a different way: in stead of guarding programs decided to make temp a DW guarded folder. Disabled Windows Update also.

    This pushed some extra performance out of her old Dell dual core laptop. Considering her internet behaviour (she allways reports when she noticed something strange or received some social engineering/phising mail), I think she will be fine. Kept DW, because she is used to change a file to trusted when she installs something.

    you know WS, you could just use SecureAPlus and whitelisting alone and get the same results.:)

  25. No Jeff is Trjam, certainly no trojam. Besides a trojan is a wooden horse on four wheels. The Jeff I know likes a steel horse on two wheels, so not quite right
