    My boring setup is torturing me. Maybe I really should be back to using a paranoid AV. :ouch:

    Currently using:

    AppGuard
    Sandboxie
    Avira Antivirus

    I just added Avira to the mix...so far there is no noticeable impact on performance.

    I am going to make use of a 30-day trial of ESET Nod32 AV, as I have no experience with ESET whatsoever and wanted to get my hands on it. Been having it on my system for almost three hours now. Seems pretty solid, no stupid browser addons and web performance seems unaffected. Real-time protection set to scan on execution only (it's getting hard to find programs which still support this these days :rolleyes: ).

    Main protection is still AppGuard and Sandboxie.

    To make my life more colorful. I don't do many things with my computer and the internet anymore these days. Spotting FPs, measuring performance impact of AVs, inspecting program behaviors, worrying if my AV can get exploited so easily... woooo sounds like a fun challenge lol. :argh: :D

    Yep. As opposed to most people, when I was using a security product I always set it to the most sensitive settings. At least I know how far can it go. :D

    Aye, the CHIPS effect. We'd miss the popups heaven after not seeing any for a certain period of time. :cool:

    Another thing to worry about is auto-quarantining somewhat gets more common as well. Just for the sake of the so-called average computer user. :cautious:

    Yep there are no browser toolbars, addons, extensions or similar stuff, and everything is tightly integrated for optimal system performance. Enjoy your stay :D

    That's OK if the Av is designed for the average joe that can't answer a question similar too "No action/Quarantine", in comparison with auto-delete wich is unacceptable.

    The quarantine as a restore function for a reason. :D

    Edit: But if you use an AV with low FP rate it shouldn't be seen as a problem for anyone.

    Sure, if you have time doing all that then it can be fun and exciting yes. Well go for it unless you have something better to do with your time. :cool:
    You mean like when you start eating potato chips and you just can't stop :p No, I take the chips over popups anyday.

    Usually they come together. As soon as you install the first, you get the second... ;)
    Back on topic: thinking of giving K9 a try...

    K9 is nice, but slowed my browsing. I was only using it to filter http for my daughters pc. Instead I just use the metacert extension on chrome on her pc only (in combination with OpenDNS), and I don't have to worry about K9 slowing the entire household down.
