    So i left emsisoft suite and went on a more modular, overlapped, overkilled setup xD

    here it is realtime:
    - bitdefender full security suite (tried to install only the antivirus but it went with the full package so w/e ...)
    - private firewall (it does not conflict with BD firewall for now, well for now bd firewall seems quite absent and not intrusive so ill keep both of them)
    - malwarebytes...well nothing to say
    - superantispyware realtime too...nothing weird for now
    - keyscrambler...still good soft, maybe can buggy the typing sometime but good
    - spyshelter...for antykeylogging good soft few popups
    - mamutu...despite i left emsisoft mamutu its still the best BB :)
    - admuncher for plain ads chopping
    - shadow defender with windows drive in shadow mode

    Ondemand:
    hitman pro
    revo uninstaller
    ccleaner
    keepas
    truekrypt

    browser:
    firefox 9.0.1 with ghostery adblock better privacy foxyproxy and lastpass
    Mantra version on demand, but rarely used
    Palemoon if I want pure speed, but I leave it without addons.


    All this stuff on Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise

    That's what you want to do if you want to BSOD your machine and/or bring it to a crawl. Seriously dude, that's overlapping security right there.

    I know XD still no bsod yet :p
    well ...actually had to disable bitdefender firewall...better PFW anyway...
    spyshelter and mamutu...well, they seems pretty nice, infact they have never given the same pop-ups...also because mamutu is not set into paranoid-mode, so it is lighter on popups.

    Yeah I have to agree skudo12, it's serious overkill. Private, MBAM, spyshelter/mamutu, shadow defender and keyscambler would do you well. If you feel that you need an AV you can add a free/light AV like avast, panda, vipre.

    Isn't Bitdefender full security suite heavy anyways?

    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.

    Router:
    Fritzbox -> Untangle (Virus Blocker = ClamAV, Spyware Blocker, Phish Blocker, Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, Ad Blocker, Attack Blocker) -> PC

    The Fritzbox is a normal first router. It also builds a little network which is meant for visitors/guests/friends. After that I built an Untangle-router with my old home-server (Dual Core 2 Duo 2,66Ghz, 2GB RAM). This is my main router which does all the DHCP,QoS,filtering,blocking,security... stuff.



    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).

    I wouldn't use it on my laptop but I would put it on my wife's laptop or the kids desktop. Its not a bad suite, its just too heavy for me. Of course I'm used to running lighter on security.

    I agree with you bd suite is really heavy, plus I have removed superantispyware from realtime because that soft hits 150kMB on idle an always keep the hd busy, I will switch that to ondemand, I actually tried to install a lighter antivirus like panda but it is not compatible with windows server, maybe I will try symantec endpoint...

    Windows firewall, Eset 5 av (HIPS deactiavted), MBAM Pro (active), Mamutu and Ad Muncher. Sandboxie from time to time. Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Any reason why I should have Eset HIPS activated? I was afraid of a conflict between them and Mamutu and figured Mamutu was probably better anyway since Eset HIPS were new.

    Mamutu is a BB and eset has HIPS ... i think both can be activated at the same time

    I feel Eset HIPS is more like an anti-exe :D
