    Whether a security setup is simple or not is just a opinion and 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 :doubt: 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.

    Changes in red... unless noted all are paid and/or latest versions...

    Realtime:
    Comodo Internet Security free, firewall Custom, Defense+ Paranoid
    WinPatrol PLUS

    Daily On Demand:
    NONE

    Suspicion On Demand:
    SAS Pro
    MBAM
    A-squared free
    Avira AntiVir Premium
    Sandboxie

    Other:
    Kerio Winroute
    EMC Retrospect
    OpenDNS
    WOT

    Future evaluation:
    OA - all versions
    F-Secure 2010
    Malware Defender

    Out:
    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! ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Settings:

    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.

    Impressions:
    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.

    Future changes:

    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.
