    For me that would be possible only if I would stop visiting this forum and following this thread :)

    Good for you. So you've found your "perfect" setup. :thumb:
    My setup doesn't change much, most of it stays the same. Right now I can't decide whether to go with blacklisting (ESET) or whitelisting (MD). That's my "last piece of the puzzle" :)

    Well it works so well so I don't want to change, my sig is what I run in real-time only and then I have the usual on-demand tools like most members on here. :D

    Hmmm go with the one that suite you the best and that is most easy to use for how you use your PC if you download a lot of software etc etc...

    Not dissing anyone here but I honestly don't understand why some of you change security apps every few days in some cases or every other week, you barely give it a chance to work o_O

    I usually only need less than a week to find out if a program is really working or not.

    Sometimes a few minutes is all I need.

    If an antivirus software is making my computer run slower fairly constantly I remove it right away. If it's causing intermittent slowdowns I'll end up removing it too.

    Yes, I do realise that some security software becomes lighter after it has been installed for a while. But, I do not want to have to put up with reduced performance while I wait and see if if system impact reduces over time.

    I always put system responsiveness ahead of security. The way I see it is that there's no point having excellent protection if it's making your computer frustrating slow to use.

    If the program is causing your pc to run slower or other issues I understand completely...I love emsisoft and comodo but on this laptop ESET runs so much smoother is why I keep it even though I have keys for EAM among other software.
