    Ok so which options should I choose for DEP, SEHOP and ASLR to have resonable security and best compatibility?

    DEP- opt out
    SEHOP-?
    ASLR-?

    Thanks!

    Uninstalled Panda and GesWall. Installed BZpro and using Google Chrome as default browser. Works very well with BZ as I had problems with Firefox and BZ.

    Just made another change. Hope it's the last for awhile. Uninstalled Comodo firewall and installed Private Firewall. Hoping it gets along with BZ.

    Ditched Comodo after their little certificate fiasco. Using Online Armor free for now if it doesn't work out I will be in the market for a new firewall :D Loving it thus far though!

    I had problems too with this combo,Comodo FW and BZ,as my laptop wouldn't start normally,always stuck on log-on screen.Tried more than 3 times and the story is the same.I'm thinking myself too to try BZ and PFW,along Spyshelter free.
    What was your problem with the mentioned combo,just curious.
