    Pulled Privatefirewall off of my 1GB of ram XP machine and am now just using Windows FW.
    Much faster and who really needs outbound protection anyway? :)

    Replaced ESET NOD32 Antivirus with BitDefender Antivirus Plus 2012 (Is on special on certain websites and when it comes to active protection it is a clear winner)

    Removed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro. Peerblock and Bitdefender does what it does and does it much, much better. As I had recently purchased MBAM, I feel it's a waste of money.

    I'm surprised not to see much use of Peerblock around here. I get the feeling people assume it's only for p2p use? It is far beyond that. It blocks so many malicious IPs with the added iblocklists. I'm currently blocking over 3 billion IPs, particularly user IP ranges from dozens of countries, with proxies and even tor, so attackers stay at bay no matter what measure they take, with a whitelist on secure websites I regularly visit. I love it.

    I think Zorin is pretty good too, probably made for Windows users, maybe to make an easy transition over to Linux, and also as you said to use Windows files. There's a charge for the more complete versions, but not much. I'll keep this in the VMware Player and try it more, but I doubt it will replace my favorite, Linux Mint.

    @justenough, hello mate. I just wanted to ask you re; Chrome extensions. Do you find it secure to use Chrome Extensions at it's current state? I've been wary since the report of vulnerability that was found in coding for some of the security extensions.

    Yeah who needs it. So long as we can keep from loading something bad that wants to call out. The problem is that it's a blind spot without an outbound firewall, so I wonder now and then.

    Oh great, something else to worry about. I don't know, Eiso, I'll have to look into it. Maybe someone else can answer that for you. But since I have Chrome sandboxed, it probably won't be a big deal.

    Oh, no! Have a glance here www.zdnet.com/blog/security/27-of-100-tested-chrome-extensions-contain-51-vulnerabilities/9537

    I currently use it incognito, with all plugins and extensions disabled, through sandboxie, for certain applications such as banking and shopping.

    May I ask why Sygate? I've heard in the past that is one of the most easily exploitable and penetrable firewalls.

    I tried it years ago but it was PITA. Too many IP's of legit sites were blacklisted. IMO internet is just too big to make good blacklist.
    I'm not afraid of attacks, because hackers have no reason to attack me (it's not like I have some secret CIA documents on my comp :) ) For script kiddies router with FW and OS firewall is enough. All my browsers are also in sandbox so no worries there also.

    Not aware of that. Have read it was good and I'm liking it a lot. I know it's the same FW integrated in Norton Internet Security. I'm also behind a NAT router. This is more for application control than anything else.

    Eiso, one of the authors of that report, Adrienne Porter Felt, posted this reply more than a month ago:

    "As far as we are aware, no one is suffering at this point; we are not aware of any active attacks that take advantage of the bugs that we found. However, if we release the names of the vulnerable extensions, then attacks will likely crop up.

    We’ve been working with extension developers to get their extensions patched. The majority have been patched at this point, and several are in the process of fixing their extensions. Importantly, nearly all the popular extensions have been fixed. So you should not panic." http://www.adrienneporterfelt.com/blog/?p=226#comments

    She also said that the one I would be concerned about, LastPass, didn't have the vulnerability.
