    Install Sandboxie with Nod and you wont need SAS and you will be close to impenetrable.

    Thank you very much for your advice. I heard from others that running OS in ram is also a possible way to avoid infection of virus, is it true?

    New one coming.............BitDefender10

    NOD32 is perfectly fine as-is, trying BitDefender again is something i need to examine once more because at one point it was quite a reliable AV. If not, NOD32 will continue to remain at duty, On-Demand Only.

    Reason for BitDefender10 is i want to see if any distress arises from it's resident guard protections like i've experienced in the past. It has been one of my favorites i had hoped to place in the line-up.

    Update results later.

    I'm thinking of replacing Windows Defender with a better AS, but trying to find one that truly works with Vista (not just "compatible") is an interesting hunt ;)
