    Why would one choose not to install all the other shields, but to install the Behavioral Shield? It really won't detect a thing, where in contrary the Web and Network Shields will.

    by following these guide

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=278014

    you wouldnt need the other shields anymore. good rule of thumb is 1 function for each security products like if you have already using a windows firewall you wouldnt need a software firewall anymore from other antiviruses

    I do perfectly understand people opt for installing the File Shield only, and use Windows internals. But in my eyes the Behavioral Shield of avast! is just useless. File Shield and Behavioral Shield don't give better protection than File Shield only.

    Changed from the AV to the Security Suite of F-secure. I really like the program so far, though browser protection marks are a little sluggish to appear when using google search in Firefox 3.6.

    If you got Windows 7 Ultimate (I don't know about all other lower versions), open Group Policy Editor, by going to Start Menu - Search programs and files and type gpedit.msc; execute it with administrator privileges.

    Then go to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - System - Driver Installation

    In the section, double-click "Device drivers code signature" and choose Activate and then Block.

    Note: The wording may differ.

    By doing this, you'll be activating this restriction to every account. Also, it's not possible for a standard user to modify such registry entry; you'd need administrator rights, and if I'm not mistaken, the change would only affect the administrator account and not the standard user accounts.

    • Safe Admin Tweaks [MANUAL] (UAC Hardened, Autorun and Autoplay disabled.)
    • Software Restriction Policy (Disallowed: Set as default)
    • Windows Firewall setup 2-way [IN/OUTBOUND: Block] (Improved via Baseline Security Templates)
    Realtime protection
    • Comodo Time Machine BETA FREE (Password Authentication to start Windows and CTM GUI settings)
    • Defensewall Personal Firewall (TRIAL)
    • Prevx SafeOnline Free
      [*] Sandboxie Free (for running/testing insecure software also another sandbox for banking sessions)

    Tool:
    1. ProcessExplorer (replaced task manager)
    2. Microsoft Security Compliance Manager 1.0 (for downloading Baseline Security Templates)
    3. MS LocalGPO (for applying Baseline Security templates) :
      Baseline Security Template: (Merged IE8SSLFUser -> IE8SSLFComputer -> Win7SSLFUser -> Win7SSLFDesktop : Allow Legacy Apps to run, Allow Administrators Group to debug programs to fix compatibility with EMET)
    4. EMET 2 (Maximum Security Setting)
    5. CCleaner


    Setup:

    1. SRWare Iron (Browser) ( --safe-plugins | Untrusted by Defensewall | Virtualized by OS | Low Integrity | click-to-play plugin | built-in adblock )
    2. Media Players ( Untrusted by Defensewall | Virtualized by OS | Low Integrity | EMET2)
    3. All Download directories is in separate partition with low rights, 'Untrusted' by Defensewall and have a deny ACL to prevent low rights processes executing in low rights container
      (downloaded low rights processes can't execute in medium / high rights directories)
    4. Locked down IE8 through Group Policy, Windows Firewall, Defensewall, Prevx SOL, EMET2 and Sandboxie for on-line banking.
    5. ClearCloud DNS


    With all this policy crap... most malwares cant run and Prevx can help me find where they are sitting and I can simply delete it or play with it inside Sandboxie :))
