    Thanks it has evolved over time to what it is today. Used McAfee for a very long time (around 10 years). I dropped in favor of KAV and Outpost. Had ProcessGuard, then switched to AppDefend/RegDefend after PG stopped development. Switched to Malware Defender after Ghost Security (AD/RD) ceased. Then went to DefenseWall after numerous conflicts between MD and other security apps. (mainly Outpost). I have always run an AV, firewall and HIPS for the last 5 years. That gives me peace of mind.

    Well sense my Main system died here about 2 days ago. My security changed due to the hardware I'm running

    Right now running Smart Security and Prevx. It's a laptop so its my best solution for right now as I switch wireless networks on a regular basis.

    Ahh, finally managed to get Group Policy restricting execution of downloaded files and e-mail attachements, see

    Example where block was removed, so GPO (ACL) does not stop access, but SRP kicks in.
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1593695&postcount=18


    Example where block was not removed by user
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1593698&postcount=19

    Set up XP Pro
    - LUA
    - SRP deny execute of userspace, except downloads directory (so user can install software which does not require ADMIN rights)
    - ACL removed access of sensible HKU registry entries, Program Menu startup folders
    - GPO IE8 changes
    *) Browser itself hardened, e.g. does not allow browser hijack changes (startup, search, etc) and click jacking (no pop-ups without headers or displayed under another pop-up), all security settings fixed (phising filter, smartscreen, cross site scripting, pop-ups, zone settings)
    *) Lots of security settings improved (e.g. Mine sniffing/filtering = does intercept a executabel hidden as temp file for example, downloaded code has to be signed, approved by admin, zone elevation protection and lots more)
    *) ACL on dwonloaded files/attachments, changed default ask (the pop-up you get when trying to execute something from the internet zone/e-mail) to block (as explained in above links), Avast is started through IOfficeAntiVirus API when download/attachment is executed)

    - Avast 5 beta (file + behavioral shield only, set to check on write only, without on execution check) making it the leanest AV I have tried until now

    - Keyscrambler free for IE8

    - Windows Firewall (behind router with NAT/SPI)

    On demand
    - Hitman Pro

    Regards Kees
