    Well, after quite some time with a nice stable config, decided to try again EAM. So far everything is nice, except slower boot and also it seems EAM scans archives in realtime (compressed executables specifically) which leads to a slower completion of downloading such files (much slower that the case with NOD32). Also the same applies it seems when moving (copy/paste) or deleting such files - considerable lag and CPU at 30-40%, a2service seemingly scanning.
    Is there any cure for that? Other than that the program is really good.

    I ticked the use of heuristics, do you think it has something to do in my case?

    I'm currently using Avast Free 6.0 and Immunet Protect 3.0. I'm giving the auto-sandbox and behavior shield a chance.

    I've been kasparsky fan for a long time and after trying their new kis2012 beta build (which crashes all the time and I don't really like it at all.. not just crashers but whole package :thumbd: ) I decided to change security setup..

    Bitdefender trafficlight (beta, testing.. It has potential!)

    Avast 6 pro 6.0.135 (Trialing.. Without behavior shield, web rep and web/network shields)
    I remember when I first time tried avast and it was version 5 then and damn man it was ~Snip~! They have done lot of improvements compared to back then. It's very effective and light now and it caught every ~Snip~ single sample I threw against it.. So.. Good bye kaspersky :D

    And testing OP FW 7.5 (beta, registered)
    Works very well with avast

    Other softwares and on demand scanners:
    Malwarebytes
    Ad Muncher


    Running windows 7 sp1 x64

    Good or bad? :doubt:

    -Added EAM for OnDemand. Mainly because it caught Zeus in the MRG tests while Avast! didn't

    -Added PeerBlock w/China IPs and default lists. Also made my own list to block connections from devices on my WLAN/LAN.

    -Enabled WLAN Partitioning to isolate wireless devices. This way if one gets compromised it cannot compromise the rest of the network.

    -Looking for a virtualized browser. Running chrome OS in Vbox right now but its slow as hell. Any Req's?
