Good Evening! Three weeks and counting...ESET S.S 7...Performance Heaven! Sincerely...Securon
This is kind of strange.
Im running linux and only have the graphic user interface of the iptables firewall.I have no av installed.
Feel a bit naked having no av on linux but a large amount of blogs etc suggest an av is not required.
Any opinions on this?
Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus 188.8.131.52
Malwarebytes Antimalware PRO 184.108.40.2060
Shadow Defender 220.127.116.117
OA goes along with Avast pretty smooth. I like that this 2 great progs work in a combo.
You cannot restore settings in the free OA, but it's not difficult to tune it manually - not so much check boxes.
As for Avast settings - there's restoration/backup of settings what i use at reinstalls.
Added Hitman Pro to both my desktop and laptop.
You are set...I like it!
I wonna add: it's a good idea after install of OA set its HIPS into learning mode and reboot then switch off the learning mode. It concerns all apps with HIPS. I dind't have any probs with OA - it must have rather smart HIPS, but by this trick I fixed "Black Screen" which happened when i tried PrivateFW.
You should be good as everything I have read on the matter says it is safe. I would only have one, just in case if you were sharing files with a Windows OS.
Right now at the present moment I'm running Qiho 360 IS with NVT Exe Radar pro and K9 web protection.
But because of some bugs (delayed detection with 360) I'm contemplating a return to Avira free....not 100% convinced I want to go back. Cant let go of those amazing 360 detection rates!
what av engines does Qiho 360 IS ?
Sounds like for what I do on the computer I'll be okay without it. Thanks.
Thank you.As i said,maybe i will give it a spin because i always liked this firewall but unfortunately in the past 1-2 years i've had only problems with it.
Bitdefender, their own cloud engine as well as their own cloud heuristics engine.
I readded ESET Nod32 AV. So now my setup consists of: Sandboxie - Malware Defender - ESET Nod32 AV.
I find this setup light and tight.
I'm using noscript but after some years of the old temporarily allow this site blah blah i'm getting tired of it and would like to ditch it
Now i'm running
Kaspersky internet security 2014
Shadow Defender (I browse only in shadow mode)
Can i safely ignore noscript with this setup?
You should be fine with your arsenal
That's why I could never use it. It's just too much work to whitelist whole internet
With your setup and Sandboxie properly configured, you don't need NoScript.
Thanks guys, much appreciated
Your setup is, to put it mildly, sheer overkill, even funny if I am being blunt. With AppGuard and Sandboxie even one real-time AV can be considered unnecessary, if you know what you are doing, and you have two. Even Shadow Defender is very possibly overkill as well. When I see your setup, I cannot help myself but to think you don't actually know how all these programs work, or else it wouldn't look like it does.
I don't fully understand the details of how every program works, that's true
However, the reason for my setup is that i surf a lot including sketchy sites and following link after link so i'll end up on unknown sites pretty often
I realize some of it is overkill but i'd rather be safe than sorry and at this point my pc is pretty much setup with all the software i need so shadow defender gives me piece of mind. Sandboxie seems like common sense when using FF and Appguard just makes life easier because i don't have to switch accounts and constantly enter admin passwords for simple tasks. Malwarebytes pro, i dunno. I've had the license for years, not even sure if i need it
So what programs would you ditch?
BTW i did enable scripts globally for the xsite/clickjacking protection
NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro in lockdown mode
as defensewall is not 64 bit system and sandboxie is gone
NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro will take their places from now on permanently
Sandboxie is not gone. Most of the people that think Sandboxie is dead are people that don't use it.
My setup since Dec 2010:
Run as administrator
No real time scanner (stopped using one in Dec 2010)
Stopped using on demand scanners, Dec 2011. For 2014, I don't foresee changing anything.
Except for Sandboxie, I wouldn't trade using NoScript for lifetime licenses for the rest of the programs in the list.
