    I will end the year with following setup:

    Resident:
    Asus router with SPI firewall
    Windows XP firewall
    Nod v. 3.0.695
    System Safety Monitor v. 2.4.0.622

    On demand:
    Acronis True Image (monthly backup of system partition)
    External WD HDD for monthly backup of user data
    Various online scanners
    Gmer
    Ccleaner
    ...

    This setup worked for me great during 2009. I hope it will be good for 2010 also.

    Ditched defensewall because it was slowing down browsing w/ firefox. Is defensewall 3 still in beta? I might try that out instead.

    I think the firewall is ok like many others. There is no HIPS but AVG IS contains AVG Identity Protection. It's a silent setup without many pop ups and questions :)

    Does it slow down the browser in any way?

    EDIT: Also, does it add entries to the host file?

    I'm a bit afraid it will slow down my Internet traffic. Does it?
