    A couple of minor changes but i reckon ill stick with this. All systems remain behind Netgear Router and have Spywareblaster and Firefox (with Adblock and NoScript) installed. Rootrepeal and SAS Free used for on-demand scans and all systems backed up using Drive Snapshot (with the fantastic DriveSnap frontend).

    Desktop: nLited Windows XP SP3

    Avira Antivir Premium
    Outpost Firewall Pro 2009
    FD-ISR 3.31.233

    Desktop: vLited Windows Vista SP1 (UAC and Windows Defender Disabled)

    NIS 2009

    Laptop: vLited Windows Vista SP1 (UAC and Windows Defender Disabled)

    Still do not see a need for something more than OA AV+. This allows to see where every process connects to and what every process does. When I go paranoid I use Dr.Web free offline scaner (CureIt). This is, of course, if not to regard VMWare as security. Generally speaking VMWare is the most perfect virtualization solution I know of.

    Looks like 4 me that typically on no matter what "online" units i will happen to be running that this current setup is noteworthy enough not to change unless something absolutely NEW! and more forceful turns up again. And no doubt something always does, but untill then this is my everyday/night routine protection.

    RESIDENT:
    EQSecure 4 Beta 3 (always w/Alyon's Rules!)
    SandboxIE (always most current version)
    Mamutu (Behavioral Blocking to keep from HIPS bypassing)
    ScriptTrap (A Few Script's Coverage)
    Snoopfree (sentimental value)
    ProcessGuard (No Overlap, the extra prevention WORKS!)
    Kerio 2.15 (Simple, Light, Custom Rules)

    ON DEMAND:
    SAS
    AVZ
    MBAM
    NOD32
    RETURNIL RVS

    CLEANING:
    Disk Cleaner
    ClearProg
    Recuva
    Restoration

    FALLBACK SOURCE:
    DriveSnapshot = .SNA Images for Recovery

    Resident looks like a lot i know, but really isn't even when only powered with a meager 512 MB of RAM on a XP Pro SP2. Many of those could go with the simple combo of SuRun + SRP but i prefer the "battle" whenever some exploit URL tries to contest those security apps.

    We have a great many security programs available now so just about any kind of combination you choose can be considered relative to meet today's and in most cases tomorrow's challenges with safety. If not, ALWAYS MAINTAIN A "CLEAN" BACKUP IMAGE that you can return your system to normal again without having to reformat. DriveSnapshot is been excellent for in those cases.

    I used to travel a lot when I was freelance (working 10 months a year, 2 months backpacking). When friends (met along the way) came over to holland , I always showed them some famous dutch mountain ("thinking of Holland I picture broad rivers floating slowly through endless lowlands"), there are no mountains, hence Dutch Mountains.

    That is all about the name lowlands, festival was intended for people floating high and happy, again lowlands (festival terraine actually has a few Dutch Mountains of say max 50 meters above sea level)

    De Lage Landen, the leasing company? So when that is where you are located am I communicating with a not sold/leased car? Amazing the beauty of progress? Problably GES/POR stands for GEStrande PORsche then?

    Cheers
