    I've made some changes:
    - removed SBIE
    - replaced ESET Nod32 with ESET Smart Security
    - put firewall in Interactive mode
    - put HIPS in Learning mode (when all rules are created it will be put in Interactive mode).

    Ultimate Security Combo: Bitdefender Total Security 2015 Beta & 360 Total Security Beta

    Started this combo yesterday and no slowdown in boot time and pc handling -everything is ultra fast. In 360 TS I have bitdefender engine disabled, of course. Quite surprised by light combo. Basically my pc is Fort Knox grade now :).

    NoVirusThanks EXE Radar Pro

    Setup #2

    360 Total Security
