Hehehe true. You always seem to keep Hitman Pro. You still testing Webroot Antivirus Beta?
yes in one of my other system i have webroot antivirus beta and it is working very good
No just to frustated about the fact that Windows7 run as basic user for SRP does not work anymore under an admin account (stopped elevation on Vista).
I regret changing from Vista business to Windows ultimate. With the much critisised Vista OS I had
a) silently elevate UAC from secure locations, with installer recognition off
b) deny elevation option for unsigned executables in UAC through registry
c) block elevation through SRP (or Sully's PGS) with run as basic user for all internet facing programs
d) deny execute trough icacls of user space (including download dir) except temp dir (which I used as install dir)
e) removable block (=deny execute) of downloaded executables through 1806 trick
All from the OS, running admin, no pop-ups and security focussed around reducing intrusion surface and selective deny execute with all the benefits of being admin. Abling and disabling security features with reg-files and batch jobs on the fly at will.
Reason for not using Applocker is when I tried it took to long to build up the white list on a weak PC, so I figured OK certificates were slowing down Vista and earlier Windows versions (like XP), my guess is that Applocker is build using the same mechanisms. When Applocker eats CPU, I can just as good use a good (easier to use) HIPS instead. So I childlessly blame AppLocker for removing the fabelous run as basic user option (while running admin) in XP and Vista.
I think Vista was the ultimate nerd-Admin OS providing old school user based security and modern object/process/directory based security.
Ah great Panda Cloud Pro 1.5 just released, gonna use it with ZoneAlarm Free Firewall
well that was short lived
Been using CIS Pro for a week...about as light as it gets...good firewall for sure!
I was sure f-secure is not going to last long..welcome back to the dancing panda club
I'll bet he's looking around though....
Running Panda Cloud Pro, on both netbook and laptop. along with sandboxie paid.
Same here, so far so good. And at the moment it feels just as light as the ESET RC
I avoided Comodo for a long time but gave it a try a few months ago and am very impressed so far. I use it in conjunction with Sandboxie, MBAM for the occasional scan and a regular disk imaging routine. That's it.
And, don't you have the same with Windows 7? Except for c), of course.
Yes, but I liked the concept of denying elevation of internet facing programs
Yes, that would be c).
By the way, I'm wondering if it would be possible to go around that restriction, by elevating those apps via already elevated apps? Or, is it something you never tested?
I ask, because... well... lately, more than I wished for, I came to understand that certain Microsoft security implementations don't work quite as I would expect them to work.
Im thinking about changing yet again ha ha
Currently trying BitDefender 2012 BETA and its just a bit too heavy for my laptop so will be getting rid of it.
In its place I will use Panda Cloud Pro (free 6 month facebook promo)
and comodo firewall. Was originally thinking OA Free but last week when I was using it it slowed me laptop down a lot more then BitDefender.
I thought this would be a good place for my first post. Hello to all and what a great forum every body has helped build. I have learned so much just following this forum I thought it was about time I join in on the fun. My set-up as follows,if anybody see something I should add please feel free to chime in. Tx
That should be a good setup. I've been thinking about running it myself. You combine Panda's web-filtering with the power of Comodo's D+, and that sounds like a great combination. Let me know how it runs for you.
Ripcord Welcome to wilders your setup looks fine..whats your backup strategy..
This is sad but as of now I don't have one. I know I need some type of Image software I guess or at least a external hard drive to make a back up of my hard drive. Tx for bring it to my attention.
Welcome to wilders
If you didn't have external hardisk, at least make system drive backup on secondary drive. So you must have at least two partition.
run this neat application
It shows everything from outdated java to dns vulnerabilities.
Hitman pro finds it as suspicious.. hmm >
Not for me it doesn't.
HMP 3.5.9 Build 125
No threats found.
must be a false positive. You can upload it to virustotal.com and get a 2nd 3rd 4th opinion if your not to sure. But I can tell you its not. Its just scan your system posting a log telling you where your holes are. That's it.
