    Can't comment on avira detection as i don't get myself infected with malware. Haha. As with sandboxie and CIS, i didn't encounter any conflicts with it. They are getting along nicely. :D

    It will depend on how you look at it.
    Winpatrol isn't HIPS (I though it was), it's a system monitor ;)

    Switched completely to BitDefender Pro and Online Armour free.The machine feels a little slower with BAV thought.
    I disabled scan http traffic from BAV cause it slowed down the browsing and let only web shield from OA.

    oh wow.. I have a license for bitdefender but dont bother using it because the last time I did it was a mere episode of watching this monster dance all over the system.. couldnt barely do anything just watched it update scan and then thought life is too short:D

    my setup could be better with paid Sandboxie but I cant pay for it and I don't want to pirate such a good software :)

    LOL
    As a matter of fact,now,after 3 1/2 hours of using BAV,i had to revert the system to my favorite CTM snapshot.And after 4 reboots and one BSOD, i realize that BAV has brought down my laptop in its knees.And with 2Ghz and 4Gb ram,i don't think it's a weak machine...

    You can't go wrong with OA premium and EAM. Its a great combo. One of my favs. Damn near bullet proof if you add geswall to the mix.

    Sorry I didn't notice that you were 64bit. yeah it is too bad. Hopefully geswall 3 will be out soon and it will be 64bit. Time will tell. I'm not holding my breath though.

    Removed MSE because of quirks. Standard accounts, UAC on high, and Sandboxie are my main defenses against the ugliness.

    Have used Acronis Rescue disk to image/restore and I'm pleased.

    I am now running Defensewall Personal Firewall, EMET, Windows Firewall and Windows Defender!

    The tech support and customer service I have received from Ilya has been second to none :D

    I'm glad I could be of some assistance. I wasn't sure if my steps (not knowing the exact English wording) would properly guide you through it. :thumb:
