    I know MBAM and A-squared will detect it, because they have really have some false positive problems...So i am not reluctant to run them. :D

    You mean "if" something slips by?
    Well then I would simply reboot and discard my current shadow session (shadow defender)for another one.

    IMO the detection is okay but, I personally don't trust cloud technology.
    you should read immunet EULA whether you agree in its data collection.

    Some random crashes but overall its stable.

    EDIT: I might try Panda Cloud AV on its next official update.

    Actually I've noticed that too... I'm wasting alot of time.:'(
    I think I'm going to settle now with my current setup.

    I need to find a way to earn money online now as I don't have any source of income :'(
     
  18. Current setup is very light. Maybe too light. But if it fails me, well, that's what Macrium Reflect is for.

    Base:
    - Static XP SP3 core (Macrium Reflect image)

    Hardening:
    - Seconfig XP and SafeXP
    - Autorun disabled via registry (as always)
    - Default object owner for admins changed to Admin group (on install)
    - SRP limited-user restrictions on all internet-facing apps, viewers, editors, and media players
    - DEP enabled, remote help rubbish disabled

    On-demand scanning:
    - MBAM
    - HJT
    - SAS

    Firewall:
    - Windows XP Firewall (all exceptions disabled)

    And that's it.

    The idea is simple, don't let anything run as admin unless I deliberately start it as admin. MBAM and SAS are there on-demand to tell me if it's wise to start something as admin. ;) Otherwise, autorun being disabled means that software won't install automatically from external media, and the SRP restrictions (plus DEP) should (at least in theory) prevent nasties that attack the browser from getting admin privileges.

    The one big hole I can see here is userspace keylogger detection. The SRP restrictions don't completely protect against that, so I should probably be using a realtime defense of some sort. Snoopfree maybe? Is that still maintained?

    (I would use PrevX Free, which appears quite handy for telling when you're infected; but between PrevX's business model and their false positives I want nothing to do with them.)

    Not in my opinion.
    Not with what you use.
    An occasional scan or two once in a while is not a bad idea though.

    Well this is going to stay for some time on my play PC (still recovering from rugby accident, so plenty of time to experiment) :D

    XP Pro

    Realtime
    * Comodo Time Machine protecting Programs partition (all temporary data folders are moved to Temp partition, all user data like mail and documents to data partition. to reduce updates of C:\ partition, hence reduce data replication by CTM driver)

    * Windows XP FW inbound protection

    * Bufferzone sandboxes new programs and scripts (simular Comodo Sandbox)
    * Bufferzone denies untrusted to go outbound (only Chromium allowed)

    * Running ADMIN with Software Restriction Policy on data partition (deny), allow on temp partition and running office and internet facing as limited user

    * IE8 + keyscrambler free + AVG Linkscanner free for daily browsing

    * Chromium sandboxed in BZ (simular to Sandboxie) for dodgy browsing/testing

    On demand
    * Hitman Pro
    * Panda on-line Active Scan
    * Microsoft on-line One Care scan

    Regards Kees
