    If you can afford, just use Sandboxie (paid) and Mamutu or something like Comodo or OA Premium same.

    It has better security!

    well it's a bit hard to get these softwares in my country or online

    SO
    the availble paid software

    are
    KIS2011
    bitdefender
    F-secure
    nod32

    any advice o_O

    I don't thing a paid anti virus will help

    as on the last setup i tried every ondemand scanner with no use

    hitman ,prevex ,sas ,MSE ,MBAM ,SBs&d , sophos ARK ,TDSSkiller, Gmer, DRweb, emisoft emregency , blacklight

    AVG RD , DRweb RD

    so i think it was a fully undetected Rootkit or something

    any sugestions ?

    Good job you guys keep this thread open as this is the third or forth time i personally post here due to the fact that my defensive set-up is ever changing depending on experiences and problems that might have arisen ; nowadays my set-up is as follow:

    1) Avira AntiVir Premium
    2) Malwarebites Anti-Malware (Real-time protection)
    3) Spybot Search&Destroy (On-demand plus immunization)
    4) Windows 7 Firewall Control

    --Extras--
    5) Dr.Web CureIt!® (On-demand virus check)
    6) SuperAntiSpyware (On-demand spyware check)

    I run these security application on my home pc and on my laptop both running Windows 7 Ultimate, Service Pack 1
    Do you guys think my level of protection is alright? Am i a bit over-zealous maybe..? It'll be nice to have some feedback. Thank you !

    haha Apple needs iTunes on linux but it will never happen sadly.

    Got the MacBook :D first thing I did was install Sophos AV Free and Chrome.

    Setup:

    Sophos AV Free RT
    Chrome w/ NotScript and ADP (Easylist, malware list, social list )
    Firewall on set to stealth.

    looking for some HIPS or security apps any rec's?

    Probably going to buy PGP WDE here (I feel naked with out my WDE :( )
    And finally designing Mac OS X apps and iOS apps :D so far made 3 of them!

    I am curious, (and no offense to anyone) but how do you KNOW a security tool is "solid". I see lots of posts here that go something like this:

    I am trying out product XYZ, and nothing gets by it.

    Is throwing a few malware samples at it the beginning and end of the test? What is the criteria for claims of "pure awesomeness"?

    Sul.

    he mean he didn't get hacked Or infected yet

    trust me the best tool that 90% Clean

    is to use live Disks :doubt:

    My last security setup was too overwhelming

    and it failed miserably :'(

    Security doesn't have to be overwhelming. You only need to know what you can achieve with the following (IMHO): Operating system and web browser.

    If you know how to use those two, then only one factor remains - You.

    I can tell you that my main security is how I use my web browser. Anything that may pass through it and touch the operating system, will be in a vegetative state.

    My setup, which I'll probably keep for awhile:

    -Only me using the PC (<=major point)
    -32bit OS, up-to date, Windows FW enabled
    -KAV 2012, customized: FileAV, System Watcher, Proactive defense with all options enabled; other minor tweaks
    -Sandboxie (Free; planning on getting a license when I get a chance a credit card), working on some tweaks.
    -Firefox with NoScript (blocking scripts from 3rd party sites, allowed only what is necessary) and AdblockPlus (blocking malverts)
    -NortonDNS, blocking bad domains.
    -Opera running in Sandboxie when going to unknown sites.
    -frequently exploited programs (flash, Java etc.) kept up-to-date (as much as possible)

    Oh, I thought you were going with the MacBook Air ?
    However you feel like a very lucky man :cool:

    Also...looks like the iMacs will get a refresh tomorrow, (hopefully).
    If the refresh isn't a BIG step forward i'll probably go with a MacBook Pro.

    But I decide after I have seen the new iMacs *puppy*
