    Windows 7 Prof. x64 SP1:
    UAC at max level (while using a standard account)
    EMET at max protection (all internet facing apps added, pdf reader, openoffice,...)
    Applocker
    NortonDNS

    Real-Time protection:
    Comodo Internet Security (AV,FW,D+,Sandbox)
    Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware Pro (Web & Realtime protection)

    On demand:
    Hitman Pro
    AVZ
    Dr.Web CureIT
    Comodo Cleaning Essentials

    Firefox:
    Adblock Plus (Easylist + EasyGerman, EasyPrivacy, Fanboy's List + P2P + Tracking/Stats Blocking + International Tracking/Stats Blocking, Facebook, Malware Domains)
    HTTPS-Everywhere
    HTTPS-Finder
    Flashblock
    KeeFox
    Foxyproxy (using a SSH-Tunnel to my dedicated server.. except a few sites which I manually added to Foxproxy)

    Thunderbird:
    Always connects to the internet via a SSH-Tunnel to my dedicated server
    Passwords saved & encrypted with a Master-Password

    KeeFox:
    Syncing all my passwords on all devices via my dedicated server
    Fully replaces the password manager of:
    - Firefox (With KeeFox as Firefox addon)
    - FTP-Client (FileZilla & WinSCP)
    - Putty
    - soon MSN/Skype/mIRC/ICQ/...

    SSH-Tunnel:
    I generally use the SSH-Tunnel to my dedicated server on most app's that send/receive important or personal information to prevent sniffing. Thought about using OpenVPN but I only wanted to encrypt my network traffic for certain applications instead of everything.

    What I want to add/change:
    Replacing my fritzbox with a DDW-RT Router

    I really recommend KeePass to everyone. You can sync it on every device via the web (dropbox,ftp,sftp,ssh,what-ever) and fully replace any password manager. To log into my ftp-server via Filezilla I just run KeePass, select the login entry in KeePass and click "open". Filezilla will start and log in with the credentials given from KeePass. Works with nearly every program.
    I still wonder if it's safe to run Thunderbird the whole day with my passwords saved in the password manager (but encrypted by using the master password).

    Removed Sandboxie, Removed NOD32.

    Added Chrome Dev thanks to now allowing proper adblocking. 1806 trick also applied.

    EMET at maximum. DEP Always On, SEHOP Opt Out, ASLR Always On (No issues with the programs I use) All internet facing apps configured.

    Binisoft’s Windows 7 Firewall Control for controlling outbound connections.

    Deciding between NortonDNS and Panda URL Fiilter.

    That’s it.:thumb:

    IMAC are very pricey but from everything I have read there given almost 5 stars by users and said to be worth it.Be kinda nice to have a different OS and go on MAC software binge.

    I am going to get an iMac too. But I am waiting until Apple updates them with Ivy Bridge, and new Gen graphichs. Wich hopefully should happen Q1 next year :thumb:

    So my advice is to wait with the purchase a little longer :)

    Ivy bridge(computer processor) is the codename for a processor microarchitecture that is being developed by Intel as the 22 nm die shrink of Sandy Bridge.

    Intel may unveil its next generation of processors--nicknamed "Ivy Bridge"--in April 2012

    Ivy Bridge (IVB) is the first chip to use Intel's 22nm tri-gate transistors, which will help scale frequency and reduce power consumption. As we already mentioned, mobile Ivy Bridge will be the first Intel CPU to bring four cores into a 35W TDP.

    At a high level Ivy Bridge looks a lot like Sandy Bridge. It's still a monolithic die that features an integrated GPU. The entire die is built at 22nm, continuing Intel's march towards truly addressing integrated graphics performance. Ivy Bridge won't get rid of the need for a discrete GPU but, like Sandy Bridge, it is a step in the right direction.

    Ivy Bridge is backwards compatible with existing LGA-1155 motherboards, although there will be a new chipset for Ivy Bridge and new motherboards to enable some features (e.g. PCI Express 3.0, native USB 3.0). The new chipset family falls under the 7-series banner. We'll see Z77, Z75, H77, Q77, Q75 and B75 available at or around launch.
