    Frankly, I'm surprised you can still browse somewhere w/ 4 various tools that mess with your browsing. Suggestion - keep it simple.

    Uninstalled ThreatFire to try Comodo and it still have some compatibilities issues with Chrome, so uninstalled it and decided to give F-Secure 2011 a try :D :D

    I tested Comodo CIS like a month before and it had compatiblity issues with Chrome, uninstalled it and then waited a month to see if it was fixed, seems like not xD

    Have only reported 1 pop up from Deep Guard after hours of use xD

    Manual Scan slow downs PC to a point where it is almost unusable LOL
    But aside from the resource hog manual scan everything is lightning fast :D

    Ok, I'm trying a new setup and want to get suggestions on anything I might be missing or redundant on.

    Windows 7 64 bit(Mainly use a Limited User Account but sometimes run as adminstrator)

    PC Tools FW
    Avast 5 (Paid) with all shields but P2P shield (I don't use any of those sites)
    Prevx with safeonline
    WinPatrol
    Malwarebytes Paid with Website blocking turned off
    Main Browser is Firefox w/ no script, flash block,ad block,WOT and Optimize Google
    Macirum Reflect
    SpywareBlaster

    On Demand:
    Hitman Pro
    Asquared Free

    I'm hoping this has me pretty well covered. I changed from Avira to Avast and from Outpost to PC Tools. I suppose from some of the stuff I've read on here that Outpost is better than PC tools with the HIPS, but think I have that covered with Prevx?

    I'm still having some trouble understanding if I have all my needs covered, so if this is lacking in something, please let me know.

    Admuncher injects a dll into all browsers by default which is how it interacts and filters their content, it can be configured to filter or not filter any browser you want

    @Cherub

    SpyWare Blaster is targeted for IE, FWIU. So it may not be the best solution for FireFox and Chrome.

    Only thing missing is a Sandbox/Virtualization type on demand solution.

    I would recommend KeyScrambler Personal Free, runs in Firefox and IE for the free version.

    You might want a password manager, like Lastpass or Roboform.

    If you are travelling, you may want to disable AutoRun, Panda USB and AutoRun Vaccine. If you are Wifi-ing while traveling, then something like HotSpot Shield, might be worth looking into. There is also Neo Safekeys, for public wifi network logins and password entering.

    I think your needs need to be spelled out better. There is File Encryption software, password protected files and so on and so forth.

    But Im still a Noob.

    If it works good for you, congrats. :D It never works good for me, and it's probably the most retested product on my system. (Yep, that means a quite big lot.) :D

    I forgot, I do have keyscrambler(free version) for both IE and FF. I have shadow defender on demand but sometimes I'm lazy about implementing it.

    I don't travel with the computer(it's a desktop) and don't use Wifi.

    Really, I just use the computer to surf the net(I probably surf what some would consider the dark side but certainly not anywhere close to the worst of the net) and money management(Quicken). Occasionally watch a movie with the Netflix component in Windows. Probably the biggest of my worries is either losing my information when online banking and/or someone hacking into my quicken program. I've read some of the posts in Wilders about online banking security and try to follow them.

    The computer is in my house(no kids or prying eyes) so I feel that any outside problems with safety is minimal. (Although I do use a password for both the admin and LUA accounts)

    Thanks for the response. I just want to make sure I'm not leaving any bases uncovered and really appreciate the help.

    Just switched from CIS 4 to MSE. The other night, my mom got hit with Koobface. When she get the Elevated Privileges alert, she clicked Allow, thereby defeating the purpose of the Comodo Sandbox/Defense+. Default Deny is no good if you have a bad habit of allowing everything, so might as well go with something simpler like MSE.

    Will your at it ditch MBAM for Norton Power Eraser. Its detection is amazing, it even detects Firefox, Thunderbird, Private Firewall and SAS as malware.
