So at the Moment i have a nice time wihout any AV Solution.
Only On Demand Tools are running in my System.
My Security Spec:
Router: Fritzbox 3270
System: Windows 7 32 Bit Firwall
System Security:Hitman Pro,Hitman Alert and Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro
Browser Security Addons:Addblock Plus,NoScript,WOT,Ghostery
My boring setup is torturing me. Maybe I really should be back to using a paranoid AV.
thank you ams963
Good Afternoon! Re-Installed Eam...with WSA Security Plus...and AppGuard. Really impressed with Eam on my system...Love Emsisoft's Philosophy...Straight Up no Chaser...Meaning no Meaningless Add-On's...or Clutter. Sincerely...Securon
Why does it need to be paranoid AV?
After a few months with Avast free,decided to return to an "old love"...Avira
And now i have what's in my signature.
Windows Ultimate 7 (x86) behind router with NAS
The magnificent Windows 7
1. Windows Firewall also blocking outbound
2. Deny download of executables within IE-zone
3. Running browser and add-ons in protected mode
4. Disabled riskware services and user autostart entries
5. Scripting software secured with group policy restrictions
6. Deny execute for basic user outside UAC protected folders
7. Deny elevation/installation of unsigned executables/drivers
Virus Total Cloud Positioning check
a) VT-check of load points with HitmanPro EWS
b) VT check of running processes with ProcessExplorer
c) VT check of UAC protected folders with Sig(nature)check
I just added Avira to the mix...so far there is no noticeable impact on performance.
i know what you feel and i did went back to "paranoid mode"

Maybe some nice people need excitement in their every day life.....
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 ).
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.
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.
Aye, the CHIPS effect. We'd miss the popups heaven after not seeing any for a certain period of time.
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.
Yep there are no browser toolbars, addons, extensions or similar stuff, and everything is tightly integrated for optimal system performance. Enjoy your stay
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.
Edit: But if you use an AV with low FP rate it shouldn't be seen as a problem for anyone.
But I can get excitement in other ways
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.
You mean like when you start eating potato chips and you just can't stop 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.
just added ESET NOD32 Antivirus 7 to my arsenal I am still fast very light
