    It's time to clean my "table" and start to find the REAL Holy Grail ;) I still have very good license arsenal: SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Online Armor, Shadow Defender, DefenseWall, Sandboxie, DriveSentry, MailWasher, RoboForm, KeyScrambler etc.

    But the questions is that where should I go now? Are Malware Defender/Real-time Defender worth to try/test? Something else new and revolutionary?

    I made a couple of changes since the last post but added back my big gun
    since the previous post was mostly a test of new software.
    Just using the firewall in CPF, took out the D+.
    This is my new and permanent setup, always open though.

    DefenseWall 2.45
    Comodo Firewall
    Drive Sentry 3.1.2.22
    SpywareBlaster

    All running very nicely together with no issues.

    Also use:
    SAS Pro On Demand
    WinPatrol Plus, when needed
    MailWasher Pro
    Ccleaner
    CookieWall
    Linksys Router

    FD-ISR

    Any feedback would be welcome. :)
    Thanks, Dan

    Thanks G1111,

    Not a bad idea.
    I can see the benefit of double checking the system with an AV scanner. :)

    Kees, you have introduced a source of information I was needing but did not know of. In that .pdf the reg tweak to allow 'Basic User' into SRP list, is most welcome. To have a 'drop my rights' type approach for whichever network facing application is very good knowledge. I tested simple, and it works a charm.

    Many thanks for that.
