    Thanks, Ibrad, good to know that Panda doesn't expect us to give up MBAM. Please post if you hear that they've fixed the conflict.

    Panda Cloud for me. The heck with it, their products are tops and blowing away the field. Doesnt take this fan boy long to find which train to catch.;)

    After playing around with it myself, I am not sure turning it off makes much difference.

    Panda also seems to slow down Google Chrome a bit when loading a few tabs (2-3+) at the same time.
    If i start scrolling down or up in a tab already loaded while loading a few more it lags :) a LOT! (Edited!)

    Maybe, but since I'm not paranoid IMHO I don't need it.
    When proper help file gets out, or more info on that feature, I'll see that option again.

    Between PEG, WPP, and Comodo D+, aren't you essentially using three HIPs programs at the same time?

    Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit

    Real-Time
    Avast! Free 5.0
    Sandboxie Paid 3.46

    Windows
    UAC (User Account Control) > Highest
    LUA (Limited User Account)
    DEP (Data Execution Prevention) > All Programs
    Still need to enable SEHOP sometime

    Network

    On-Demand
    Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Paid 1.46

    Browser
    Google Chrome 5.0 (AdThwart & LastPass, forced sandbox, empties on exit)

    I was worried Sandboxie wouldn't be able to protect against phishing, so I tried Prevx SafeOnline and Trusteer Rapport. They are not compatible with Sandboxie, so I created a non-sandboxed shortcut for Chrome. SafeOnline didn't get along with Chrome, so I stuck with Trusteer for a while, until I remembered I don't like security that requires a user to make a decision i.e. click on the non-sandboxed Chrome for finances instead of the normal one. Supposedly LastPass cannot be tricked to automatically enter login information into a fake website. So that will have to do.

    i had avira before but i dont feel the need for an AV.

    do i need a software firewall to replace windows firewall if im already behind a router?

    i tried outpost firewall and private firewall before. but i just uninstalled those after a few days.

    Thnk I'm headed back to my Avast / Prevx combo except this time I'm trying out Avast Pro. I had set Prevx to only scan once a day and not on boot but it scans anyway. So there's an outside chance it gets the heave ho before long...maybe, I still like it. But it just seems like it is constantly scanning all the time. Maybe Comodo w/D+ or Mamutu is in my future.

    Is anyone using Avast Pro with Google Chrome browser? In the past I have had issues with sandbox type programs and Chrome.

    RAM says nothing, idle RAM especially. They are all hiding it in virtual memory and the pagefile. I remember a test which tested idle MEMORY usage (not RAM usage) and the lightest one was ESET NOD32 using around 240MB of memory. Most were over the 300.
