    Avast and A-squared are running well together? Or is one on demand? I have avast pro and a-squared paid but I would have thought that both would have caused issues. If it doens't I'll give it a try. Of course I have avast pro and OA paid so....that should be enough.

    So far perfectly, but only had A-squared real time since the recent give away, before that I had the free version on demand.
    I figure with both Avast and A-squared real time, that one may catch something the other misses if somehow anything gets past DefenseWall :D

    it is the other way around if some thing get passed A2Square or avast then that is when DefenSeWall will trap this malware and criple it in real time;) it is like jail time for malware:) :D

    It puts your computer into a virtual enviroment so no changes will take place to your pc.
    Reboot and your computer is back to how it was before running returnil.
    Very similar to Shadowdefender.

    cool;) one thing i want to mention is that if you have OA Premium you dont need spywareblaster cause OA has host protection and web protection included in the package:)

    Spyware Blaster and Online Armor protection is different. OA does alert changes to the Hosts File, alerts on Active-X, and has a cookie cutter but doesn't exactly block exploits in the same manner as Sypware Blaster does. Spyware Blaster is a transparent layer of protection that is always good to have especially if you use Internet Explorer though Firefox and Opera are somewhat covered now as well.

    Back to Online armor and A-squared. Both paid versions. I can't wait for avast 5 free or avast IS 5 to come out. Also a-squared 5, which adds the file scanner to it.

    Proper backup and router with SPI firewall

    XP Home machine (wife)
    - DW v3 Beta (HIPS/FW)
    - Keyscrambler free for IE8
    - Avast beta 5 with file shield only (deselected open/read check)


    Vista x64 Home Premium (Son's gaming PC)
    - Windows FW - 2 way
    - UAC on plus Norton UAC tool
    - Pretty Good Security SRP default deny execute user space, run as basic user of all threat gate applications (seems to prevent UAC elevations)
    - Avast beta 5 with file shield only (deselected open/read check)


    XP Pro machine (my own slow single core machine, yet running sleek and lean :)
    - LUA with registry tweak for basic user and run_as *.msi installers
    - SRP default deny user space
    - Windows Defender (enabled ask for corfirmation with unclassified software changes, advanced spynet)
    * no scan, no check on program execution, no check on software and drivers, other agents enabled
    * so only the light IDS protection where WD stays on his feet when running LUA (deselecting the on execution check also reduces CPU and DISK load enormously).

    - Enjoying ChromePlus sandboxing while browsing
    - Hitman Pro Free on demand (enabled context menu scan)
