for me i will have to wait alitle more to celebrate cheers
I found a 40% off deal for Norton products and snapped it up.
I love your "setup"
Added Malwarebytes 1.42 to my experimental setup.
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.
Still using the same setup.
Added Glary Utilities (now compatible with Win7)
just starting to use ShadowDefender
NAT router + Windows Firewall
Defensewall 3 Beta with Firewall
Returnil with AV disabled (to protect against internal 2 year old virus who has discovered Dada's mouse and keyboard.)
SAS Pro on demand for the occasional scan.
Karen's Replicator for backups.
threedog what is to protect against internal 2 year old virus who has discovered Dada's mouse and keyboard mean?
That one on two legs that runs around the house getting into everything.
ahh i see
DW V3 Beta
SBIE (only browsing)
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.
Same set-up for 3 years:
ShadowProtect (image backups)
NetGear router + Windows Firewall
Disabled AV for on-demand scans only (currently MSE)
Removed PeerBlock on Win7.
It was blocking most of my *ahem* favorite websites
Eset SS 3.0.695
Removed Microsoft Security Essentials and installed Panda Cloud
CIS with D+
A squared free
Still testing Avira 10
Added Rollback RX
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.
Example where block was not removed by user
Set up XP Pro
- 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)
- Hitman Pro
i feel very content with:
DefenSeWall Personal FireWall v3 Beta
WinPatrol Plus 2010
PE Guard 1.2
XP SP3 (Actual Computer)
Online Armor ++
Virtual PC 1
Defensewall 2.56 (Gizmo)
Drop changes setting enabled on VPC
Virtual PC 2
Win 2000 SP4
Drop changes setting enabled on VPC
i am currently trying a new set up that looks bullet proof
shadow defender and defensewall personal firewall beta v3
what do you guys think about this set up?does any one has it?comments are welcome
I use this along with Avira, reckon it does not get much better than that
