    dude, how were you able to make IP Pro run alongside VIPRE? last time I tried VIPRE + Immunet Free, I had to reboot my rig almost every 15 min... LOL... so I'm just curious about what u did....

    oooh yeah I know that but I still struggled to make'em work... that was about three months ago. I might give it a spin sometime during this weekend, both products were significantly updated between now and then so probably there's no more conflict.... :thumb:

    It installed a plugin but when I looked at the plugin list it was the fast loading plugin out of all of them.

    It gives you the option of installing a toolbar but it is clearly laid out in the main setup and one untick and its gone. I think once you chose not to install it Rising does not ever offer to install it again.

    ESET 4 Security AV is so far proving temperate on my system with satisfactory results on identifying viruses, trojans, and have what may.

    On the other hand, i also employ on other systems of mine Avira AV which i find their Live Guard very sensitive and that suits me just fine too.

    Right now it's a tug of war between HIPS plus all the many new AV features today or virtualization technology, sometimes i put them all together. No significant impact on resources or otherwise explorer crashes anymore either.

    So something is getting better in the software security side of matters these days.

    I gotta say, it feels weird runing linux. I made the switch a while back, and I find myself using it more and more. Now, im no linux elitest, but, for basic use, its simple enough.

    Its fast, light, and most of all secure. Feels kinda liberating.

    More secure than the average Windows box, sure. Tough to find a setup that is truly "secure" though.
    Vulnerabilities (kernel, Firefox, flash, etc), etc, and malware as well. http://www.google.com/search?&q=linux malware

    I'd definitely grab a front-end for the firewall and always exercise common sense.

    got rid of f-secure, too much disk usage, slowed down actions like loading in games, closing and opening of files and such, and back to my tried and true avast free version (pro version seems to be giving me BSOD's for some reason, im guessing it has something to do with the sandbox even tho i never used it...)

    The new kernels have a built in firewall, and, as long as you dont give everything you see root privilege, i think your okay for the most part

    I will maybe uninstall NIS 2011 because it quarantines stuff without asking and you can change to not but only for low risk. Also i think i will get rid of Norton DNS, if i go to some website to download a file it blocks the whole site because some files on that site is malware, but the one i currently want to download is but because of that block i cant download anything... stupid.. they also blocked Winamp dowload cause they say Winamp contains bad stuff.
