    @shadek: I'd suggest he keep SUPERAntiSpyware and Kaspersky Rescue Disc as well just in case.

    @x942: My silo is still stronger, because it has disk imaging in case of failure :cool:

    Seeing as you have PrevX can I ask if there would be any conflicts with avast!?
    I have SOL Face book version and was wanting to update it to have Removal and RealTime protection (Not just RT detection). It works fine right now without those features.

    if you have avast security package with firewall then it is not good idea to have 2 firewalls:D

    No I just have Avast! Home AV. I find their FW poor at best but their AV is great :D I use Comodo as my FW but I was hoping to disable any prevx firewall components and use it as SOL W/Removal + Protection like Anti-Malware Right now it is running with Comodo FW, Avast AV, SAS Pro. but has no Real Time protection or removal just Real Time Detection. I assume adding removal and Protection wouldn't cause any issues?

    Trying out Online Armor 5, Avast 6 and geswall free.
    Running it on Win 7 ultimate on Vmware PLayer 3.14.
    VMware is playing nicely.
    Might be my next favorite set-up.

    Some time ago i would have fully agreed with you. But you may know that even the most trusted websites can get infected and the daily news about finding new security holes in any kind of software is a nightmare. So i do understand that people have a load of security layers and still keep trying to make it better. The times are over when your system was secure with a single AV and brain 2.0.

    So my system is not secure? How is that possible, I have never been infected since I got my brain 2.0 (starting to get interested in pc's, internet, security etc.)?

    Read again, i never said it's not secure. I wrote that it's nowadays not secure to use only a single signature based AV and brain 2.0. And btw, we could reckon to get a 95% security, but for sure it's never 100%.
    And imo, that you've never been infected is no proof that your system is absolutely secure.
