    Each of my setups are specifically tailored for the user:

    All running windows 7 and behind Netgear Router WPA2 Encryption (with OpenDNS Filtering and Keyword blocking). UAC enabled, windows defender disabled.

    Laptop: Used for online banking/purchases, gaming, work, heavy p2p

    Avira Antivir (Free)
    Defensewall v3
    FD-ISR
    Browser: Firefox (AdblockPlus, Element Hiding Helper)

    Desktop: Used for general browsing and work

    KIS 2010
    Acronis TrueImage 2010
    Browser: IE8

    Desktop: Used for general browsing, schoolwork, some p2p use etc

    Avira Antivir (Free)
    Online Armour Premium
    Acronis TrueImage 2010
    Browser: IE8 (Simple Adblock and set to Run-Safer)

    Provides bulletproof protection after considering the usage habits of each setup and not a single infection to date that hasn't been detected (scans run with a2 free and superantispyware confirming this.)

    For some odd reason I had to find out that KIS2010 blocked video streams on my Win7 64bit system. No solution to be found anyware other than turning off several parts of the program. So now Comodo 64bit on my PC and wow...it works very very good.

    Used to happen on my PC too!!
    Mine is Windows 7 32Bit, had to turn off KIS for the vids to work, so i uninstalled it a few months ago and went with Avira.
    But i formatted PC yesterday and decided to try KIS 2010 again, and woah it doesn't affects video streams anymore :p
    Sandbox didn't work before but now it works!! so im happy with KIS 2010 :D

    You might consider Sully's PGS also then. Just run all your internet facing software as limited User, you can do the same with your user space (C:\Documents and Settings on Xp or C:\Users on Vista/Win7) or just the Download directory specified in Chrome/Iron (in stead of complete User space folders). Pretty Good Security uses your OS to help protect you (no extra CPU cycles eaten by 3rd party aps).
