    Antimalware: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
    On-demand scanners: None, I have no use for these
    Others: Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware Beta (beta-testing it), Common Sense 2k16, broad set of skills and knowledge needed to take care of my system
    Web browser: Google Chrome 64-bit

    Imaging/Cloning/Backup: None. Running a 1 SSD + 2 1TB HDD setup. All of my files are on my HDDs, and the ones I care the most about are either on Dropbox or Google Drive. So even if the whole thing crashes, I'll be good. Also, I prefer clean reinstalls to image restore.

    I guess that's about it...

    Removed Comodo FW from one PC.
    It had gotten corrupted and was throwing error messages and blue screens.
    Comodo forum was not much help.
    Native Windows FW is working just fine.

    Edit in: Removed Comodo FW from a 2nd PC. Both machines are snappier at this point.

    MSE failed critically, so I switched to Kaspersky Free.

    Kaspersky free is still only on Russian language?

    I think AppGuard + Webroot + Adguard is decent protection for day-to-day computing.

    Very light - and easy configuration (convenient).

    I think so. I'm using it in Russian.

    So, Iv'e been using Appguard+ERP+HMPA and have a pretty good handle on how I've set up my computer. I've had a Malwarebytes premium license that I bought sometime ago and although I like using it for scanning, I'm wondering with the above setup if its worth using it in realtime? I suppose an extra layer couldn't hurt, but the resources it uses sometimes makes me wonder if its worth running, not that it drags my computer down by any means, but wanted to see what everyone thought.

    After years of using the same setup it is again time to post a little update:


    Arch Linux x64:
    grsecurity + paxd
    DNSCrypt
    firejail

    Real-Time protection:
    ClamAV with "unofficial-clamav-signatures" configured to scan everything that pacman/pacaur does as well as everything inside my "download folders".

    On demand:
    Nothing yet

    parabola's iceweasel x64:
    uBlock (Easylist + EasyGerman, EasyPrivacy, Fanboy's List + P2P + Tracking/Stats Blocking + International Tracking/Stats Blocking, Facebook, Malware Domains)
    NoScript
    HTTPS-Everywhere
    KeePass Addon
    Redirect Cleaner
    BetterPrivacy
    Random Agent Spoofer
    Foxyproxy (using a SSH-Tunnel to my dedicated server.. except a few sites which I manually added to Foxproxy)

    parabola's icedove:
    Always connects to the internet via a SSH-Tunnel to my dedicated server
    Passwords saved & encrypted with a Master-Password

    KeePass:
    Syncing all my passwords on all devices via my dedicated server
    Fully replaces the password manager of:
    - Firefox (With KeeFox as Firefox addon)
    - FTP-Client (FileZilla & WinSCP)
    - Putty
    - soon MSN/Skype/mIRC/ICQ/...

    SSH-Tunnel:
    I generally use the SSH-Tunnel to my dedicated server on most app's that send/receive important or personal information to prevent sniffing. Thought about using OpenVPN but I only wanted to encrypt my network traffic for certain applications instead of everything.

    Router:
    Fritzbox -> Untangle (Virus Blocker = ClamAV, Spyware Blocker, Phish Blocker, Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, Ad Blocker, Attack Blocker) -> PC

    The Fritzbox is a normal first router. It also builds a little network which is meant for visitors/guests/friends. After that I built an Untangle-router with my old home-server (Dual Core 2 Duo 2,66Ghz, 2GB RAM). This is my main router which does all the DHCP,QoS,filtering,blocking,security... stuff.



    I really recommend KeePass to everyone. You can sync it on every device via the web (dropbox,ftp,sftp,ssh,what-ever) and fully replace any password manager. To log into my ftp-server via Filezilla I just run KeePass, select the login entry in KeePass and click "open". Filezilla will start and log in with the credentials given from KeePass. Works with nearly every program.
    I still wonder if it's safe to run Thunderbird the whole day with my passwords saved in the password manager (but encrypted by using the master password).

    Don't know of anything else that I could add. Maybe I could add another AV to scan all downloaded files (done by my router) but I think 3 AV's are already enough (ClamAV = Router, CIS & MBAM = System). Especially when there is OpenDNS, Phish Blocker (Router) and Spyware Blocker (Router) blocking everything before I can even load/browse it. And if malware still manages to bypass those 6 layers of protection I still have a HIPS,FW and auto-sandbox. In case all those 9 layers of protection don't help I would still have all my sensible data encrypted with TrueCrypt as well as my passwords are saved within KeePass with a strong encryption, keyfile and master password.

    I just wished that there where any decent firewalls for linux (with per-app rules instead of only system-wide rules).
