blue point is in my signiture
I'd like to think i'm well protected too....but you never know,right?
It seems that 1 is never enough...simplicity is not always the way to go...i repeat,NOT always....
Whether a security setup is simple or not is just a opinion and taste.
of late this thread seems more about..."your security setup for the day...hour...before you logged off...logged on...the mood...the taste "
LOL some people are like that, but i only really change when i feel something isnt pulling its weight so maybe once a month at most usually less, or ill add small changes like an immunization program for instance like SpywareBlaster or an update tool, but i dont change the main security apps very often.
that can show you how hard developers are working and how well malware writers are doing in this days
Those people have no hobbies or social life,they gotta have something to waste their free time

Daily On Demand:
Suspicion On Demand:
Avira AntiVir Premium
OA - all versions
Prevx - I don't know; this guy never found anything, and I wasn't very happy with the interface.
Hitman Pro free - I wasn't too happy that this product scans a "select few" of files. I couldn't shake the feeling that maybe they left something out.
GeSWall - I have been reading some unsettling threads here about support issues, etc. No thanks.
So I am without a daily scanner, which I planned to take the place of realtime AV, but I am so pleased with going without realtime AV I think I am just going to rely on the HIPS and uncommon sense for a while...
Hey, there's always the daily backup to fall back on, haha!
Prevx / Sandboxie / MalwareDefender
None / Notta / Zip
Still the same setup. Will likely to settle on this setup.
Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, Windows FW enabled
Returnil (free) - for testing and toddler proof
VirusTotal & ThreatExpert - all download files go there for checking
One thread is more than enough to me.
if you configure MD and sandboxie properly you won't need Prevx. Dump Prevx and instead use a image program and have a backed up OS image.
I agree SSJ just likes to spamming I sometimes get bored reading his long and winded posts with the words "mate" and "haha" always in them.
hey arran whats up dude?
as a person which learn alot of ssj100 "spam" i am sure u must thank him show u the right way in some software u dislike like Sandboxie
its very dishonorably to spit in the well u just drink from it , and improved your self
I really don't know what it is with you and Boost.
but your posts ARE INFORMATIVE however at the same time they can be long and winded with irrelevant junk with repetitive words of "mate" and "haha" always in them.
it wasn't SSJ who got me using sandboxie, I learn't how to use sandboxie myself and at one stage I was using it long before I saw SSJ on these forums.
EDIT I know there was a stage where I was knocking and putting down sandboxie in these forums. But look what it has achieved. Tzuk has now been adding extra security measures, of preventing sandboxed apps from communicating to programs outside of the sandbox.
well ! Forget the " well " just drink from the ocean called...wilders but just don't try to be the ocean itself
It is wise to find the constant in an equation prior to evaluation. haha.
That "haha" is annoying sometimes but his posts are interesting
Removed all of my on demand scanners (for now.)
Currently running Zone Alarm Extreme Security since I was able to get a 3 computer license for $30.
AV/AS: Ultra deep scan, scan when reading and writing, unchecked "skip if objects are great than 8mb."
Browser Security: On, default except I unchecked "Only in allegedly secure sessions (https.)"
Firewall and Program control: Custom settings, too lazy to post.
The new ZA is MUCH faster and much less of a hog than the previous version. Also take into the fact that I am using the "Extreme" version that has Force Field running and uses less everything is a major plus.
Virtual Box with Ubuntu and Xp SP3 installed. XP SP3 will be my testbed for malware and security apps. I may also add a couple of on demand scanners again such as Avira, a-Squared (I am really liking a-Squared a lot) and that's about it.
