    As I understand it, real time protection is still ON, is just the component that goes by the name "Active Virus Control" what needs to be disabled. As far as I know, files still go through the process of being scanned by the signatures and heuristics engines when AVC is disabled.

    Thanks, I know someone had made a post in the past but I can't find it...what kind of configuration would I have to make in order to make appguard work with my current setup?

    I am thinking about switching from Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 to ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 6.X on my Laptop. I have used ESET NOD32 Antivirus for years and have not had any significant problem.

    some times it is easier than proactive but alitle risky too just to depend on signiture :) my opinion
    by the way i am running defensewall and sandboxie and defensewall says sandboxie it is untrusted applicationo_Ois it normalo_O

    I prefer virtualization as one of my main line of defenses. Routine Imaging to a Safe Location is my most important step in protection against Malware.

    I really like Sandboxie's 'light' virtualization.

    I tried Defensewall several years ago, but I have been 'lazy' about trying it again. At the time that I tried Defensewall, I probably did not understand it well enough to be confident with it.

    Sandboxie

    Defensewall

    Shadowdefender


    Pick one that works with your PC and enjoy the PC! Rock solid programs,no need to be trying different combos all the time!

    Disabled ScriptSafe for the time being to find out if it creates slowdown, might as well removing it if still not working.

    Anyway, jmonge, just my opinion. If you're using DefenseWall you don't need Sandboxie, and vice versa. :)

    Can all three of those work together to give an "Ultra Secure" Security Setup?

    True. But i never really warmed about to any kind of virtualization or sandboxing. Anyways, Im running what's in my signature. I think both MBAM Pro and FortiClient can catch most of the things out there.

    Each to their own I see. I don't like virtualization based solutions either. But I like chatty security setup. :D

    Lol, I don't like those but I settled on Private Firewall to replace the more anoying UAC which I keep completely turned off.

    How user-friendly is Private Firewall?

    I may think about giving Private Firewall a try on my Windows 8 Standard 64 bit Laptop. Does Private Firewall cleanly uninstall if I later decide that I do not want it?
