I'm also using what's in my sig
added Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO 1.75
XP Pro SP3 32-bit
Realtime : Malware Defender + EMET + HMP Alert
On Demand : HMP + Shadow Defender
The more I use my Online Armor + Avast + EMET free setup the more I like it. It's light and highly usable.
are you using avast free?and online armour free?
I want to see MbamPro with Online Armour Free
Avast Pro + Comodo FW BB and Hips on .. my new setup
jmonge, I used MBAM Pro, Avast free and Online Armour free for about 2 years with absolutely no problems. I changed to Windows firewall because I figured using Online Armour with a router firewall was a bit of overkill. Plus was too chatty for the girlfriend.

Good Morning! Digmor! Been snowbound here in Northern Ontario...minus 30 below...with winds at 15mph...makes it feel like minus 38...so haven't made it out to the beach...all week...LOL! Using Kaspersky I.S.2014 and Wsa Security Plus...more secure than any Olympic Venue...Lol! Sincerely...Securon
Happy to see you're satisfied with Kaspersky; they're much better programmers than given credit for.
Good Morning! So far...it hasn't left me out in the Cold! Sincerely...Securon
Since I am on Windows 8.1 I am using built in Windows Defender, SmartScreen filter and UAC set to max.
Ocassionally I run HMP just to be sure
Windows 7 Ultmate 32 bits with Windows FW 2-way behind Router and a NAS as backup
Execution control & intrusion mitigation
- Deny elevation/installation of unsigned programs/drivers (UAC/GPO)
- Deny execute outside UAC protected folders for basic users (SRP)
- Disabled riskware services (MMC) and hardened setup (GPO)
- Secured 'scripting' programs (SRP/GPO-templates/EMET)
Internet Explorer security & hardening
- Filter pages with IE's smartscreen and AVG Linkscanner 2014
- Run IE11 as limited user with DIY privilege / ACL / parential control
- Run IE11 tab/renderer processes and Adobe plug-ins in protected mode
- Disable download/execution of programs from internet (switch 1806 on/off)
Stay warm! KIS and WSA should keep all of the bad guys out!
I need a Kaspersky antivirus licence
Am now considering chaining VPN's via pfsense per recommendation and instructions from a member in here and moving away from Windows after XP's EOL. It looks like a very convenient way to deploy it after glancing one-over the tutorial. It will depend on just how anal I am about privacy, because I feel that post XP that is a lost cause with Windows OS's.
I also had Debian run by me as the OS. I wonder what learning curve would come along with that though.
My cup is completely empty right now. I might set up a privacy/anonymity conscious laptop and use a Windows desktop for normal use. Have a few months to ponder many possibilities.
On my new laptop.. Windows 8 FW - Eset AV 7 - Private Tunnel
Loving Eset, no bugs, hang ups or slow downs.
I may install nod32 again it is super light they said
This was my setup in April 2005 (I had just joined Wilders):
My current setup in January 2014:
Avira Antivirus Suite
It's basically the same setup, different actors except for Sandboxie which allowed me to do away with HIPS. It is also interesting to note that ShadowUser, LNS, ProcessGuard, and RegDefend are all abandoned software, only NOD is still alive and well. When people state AVs are becoming redundant, it doesn't look that way at all, if anything the opposite is true.
hitman pro on demand finds that i have riskware
its the only scanner that detects the riskware
is there any free online program that i can get off this riskware off for good?
