Removed TrafficLight and BitDefender QuickScan Chrome extensions.
Keeping the same core programs.
Adding and subtracting some smaller players.
Say it isn't so! Weren't you the guy in love with the TL bump? Where did things go wrong?
Good stuff, Markbyte. all 3 are solid programs. As already suggested, a system image is good to have in reserve, I use Macrium Reflect. You could try a firewall/HIPS program such as Privatefirewall or Online Armor, though the HIPS part can take some getting used to. And Sandboxie takes the pressure off all your other security layers. These programs all have free versions.
Tomorrow you can try Panda Cloud
Ha ha. In love with the TL bump? More like you hate it, and it doesn't bother me, wouldn't you say, je?
Where did things go wrong... hmmm.
Best answer is, with the Chrome extension verification system... once I fully comprehended how that process works.
Prior to that understanding, I was content in trusting BitDefender.
But then I realized that Chrome Web Store is saying they are unable to verify that the extensions I had actually came from BitDefender.
So I removed them. Whether it's an oversight or what, they are off my computers until other info becomes available.
As noted here.
Thinking about using Threatfire again to see how they've maintained it. Sandboxie is a very good application i would recommend it in a heartbeat. Having a router gives an added layer of security I've noticed a huge difference since i switched over from a standard modem. Key Scrambler is very light and gives you an extra feeling of security. I'm running Windows defender, brought this video with positive opinion. Btw if anyone shops Softonic be careful as i picked up a piece of Malware bundled in an application "Cookienator" called "Start now toolbar" Hitman Pro found it. I use Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro for on board scanners, and that's about it...
*Post note* I wrote them and they replied that their toolbar was a false positive
How sad Little TL Bump must be that you've forgotten her, I thought this was touching:
"I have been staring at the bump non-stop now for hours.
Can't take my eyes off of it.
If a family matter arises which would have otherwise garnered my immediate attention, I become irritable and moody and complain deeply at the very thought of leaving the desktop to lend a hand.
Everytime I scroll up or I scroll down, my eyes are riveted to the bump.
The first thing I look for when I open a new website is the bump.
I'm considering coming up with a pet name for the bump.
How did I get like this?
What control does the bump have over me?
This is not my beautiful bump."
Don't know if you found a good pet name, but this might have been a good song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEe_eraFWWs
edit: I'm giving Page42 a hard time for past indiscretions but in fairness I have to say the above quote was taken WAY out of context. He is not really as bonkers as that sounds.
I'm not so sure.
Considering trying Rollback Rx. It looks awesome.
I don't know why I haven't paid closer attention to it up until now.
Maybe just satisfied with Acronis TI, who knows.

The days of paying for an antivirus are over. With MBAM PRO, a free one (with some common sense) is all I need. Back to good ol' avast! Free.

Where can I get this?
There's one thing that confuses me. When I first heard of it, I contacted with Lavasoft and they told me their newest versions no longer have CLSIDs.
So, where do they those CLSIDs from? It isn't from Ad-Aware.
The author mentioned is Author=Ad-Aware ( AAW ). This was made me believe they got the CLISDs from Ad-Aware.
I just pointed to where the custom-blocking file is located, which I know from using SpywareBlaster a few times but other than that I have no information on what you are asking m00n.
I don't think the author has any connection to Lavasoft.
It was more of a "rhetorical" thought than anything else.
Back to using Vipre again. The 2012 version seems to have improved performance wise (Windows 7 Pro 64 bit).
m00n you got me
