    While not all antivirus or antimalware products can "detect" everything under the sun, Try a visualization product perhaps?

    For example... Returnil. Comodo DiskShield is BETA so I won't recommend it yet...

    I don't think you need Process Guard. You could use Malwarebytes Antimalware and Superantispyware for on-demand.

    Please tell me what I need or what I don't need. I have the following on a dual core HP laptop with Windows Vista 32 bit and 4 gb ram. I run behind a wireless Belkin router at home. When not at home, I'm usually at a free Wi-Fi place.

    Avira AntiVir Personal Free
    ThreatFire
    A-Squared Anti-Malware (Full paid version - version 4.0.0.50)
    Comodo Firewall Proactive Defense Plus (Comodo Internet Security Beta without the A/V running)
    SpyWare Blaster

    I use FireFox with NoScript

    Any help appreciated. Free software is desirable if at all possible. Any need for BoClean with this setup or anything else?

    Many Thanks

    You don't need Threatfire if you have A-Squared Anti-malware with IDS and Background guard on.

    Quote, he has also Comodo with the hips features: Threatfire is an useless duplicate.

    Any suggestions for this setup? (Yes, I do know about overlapping CPF with TF, but I did not experienced any trouble with this combination)
    I am wondering about adding AVZ for on-demand scanning and maybe some script protection (Script Defender?) as well as some rootkit scanners (BlackLight? RootRepeal? RKU? IceSword?). Last but not least, is it worth adding some cookie control plug-in for FireFox and password scrambler (like CS Lite and Keyscrambler respectively)?
    What about adding Secunia PSI?
