I hope its 3 different computers
Windows 7 64-bit, fully up-to-date, UAC to max, DEP for everything
Norton Internet Security 2012 (Realtime)
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free (On Demand)
Hitman Pro Free (On Demand)
SuperAntiSpyware Free (On Demand)
MVPS Hosts file / Hostsman
Peerblock (Ads, exploits, tracking IPs all blocked)
Sandboxie Free (only for opening suspicious files).
Google Chrome, up-to-date
- Norton Safeweb toolbar
- Cookies automatically deleted on browser close
I'm thinking of adding Keyscrambler Pro this setup, but apart from that I think it's rock-solid. I don't use Sandboxie with Chrome because I have faith in Chrome's sandbox and my other software to keep nasties out.
As you can see there's a strong privacy element to my setup also.
Any thoughts on what I could do to make it more secure?
It pretty much doesn't matter if SD is running or not. It will lock up just having both installed at once. I would get an occasionally BSOD. When i went into Safemode, i tried opening up SD but it will close automatically until i shut down WSA.
Strange - I see ESET for TRJAM. Alas, another one of those short term flings...
I have avast! Internet Security
Malwarebytes Antimalware Pro
I think it's starting to grow on him!
Added Norton DNS .
I'm not buying it. His avatar and sig haven't changed.
It's like one of those Kim Kardashian marriages...
72 days and its over lol
Oh sorry I thought you meant if SD was running. Ok well that makes a lot of sense then. Yeah that's what I get too! It will lock up when using my laptop and just it sitting there I'll come back and my laptop will rebooted. So I guess its one or the other. Hmmm tough choice. Thanks!
Hi all! How are you?!
Just took the time to change my setup a bit...
My license of ESET AV version 4 was about to expire, I was going to keep with it, but the license renew was too high, also, no promotions to Brazil, so I gave up...
Last december I bought 3 Licenses of EAM (USD8.00 promotion) and finally took the time to install it.
It´s running nice, no slowdowns, nothing, don´t even notice it is there.
Using about 360k of RAM so far:
Also, update my Comodo Firewall to latest version, it was a bit outdated.
Anyway, so far, system looks fine, download test was giving me about 9.26Mbps with ESET AV Version 4, and now about 9.76Mbps with EAM, both were tested with new Comodo Firewall already installed.
So far no slowdowns at boot time, at least till now, looks pretty much the same it was with ESET AV...
I´ll keep checking how this setup works with my machine, and let you know!
By the way, it´s a Core2Duo (2.10Mhz) with 4Gb Ram and 320HDD, running Windows 7 Professional 64bits.
Thanks everybody, hope this setup works well, just as my last setup served me really good last year!

@ cauefw ...
Very nice setup.
I like it a lot.
I think you are missing a process or two for EAM. No way it only uses 328k. Make sure you are showing processes for all users.
You´re right! I wasn´t checking processes for all users!
Just did it now, and found those two:
a2guard.exe - 368k
a2service.exe - 8508k
Now it looks more real, and still very nice memory usage, under normal conditions!
So far the system is working just fine!
It´s late here (3:08am), tomorrow will do some checkings about memory usage during a full scan... Hope it goes well!
Thanks for the advice!
I was just going to point that to Cauefw.
In my system EAM is currently using 344kb + 18MB so it's around 19MB as of now. (And that's with it set to scan when read/write)
EAM runs light here also and no noticeable lag!
....barebones and very unsophisticated compared to most of you guys-guess I've got a lot to learn.
Addblock plus(easylist+easyprivacy+malwaredomains filters)
standard windows firewall with default settings (don't know jack about FW's at the moment unfortunately)
For the next two weeks:
Windows 7 64-bit,
Seems I will be paying for AV in the future. After using NAV 2012 for a few months, avast! Free felt heavy, which is saying something as avast! is by no means a resource hog (unlike MSE).
As a result, I'm back to Norton AntiVirus and couldn't be happier. This, in conjunction with MBAM PRO has me more than covered.
Router with NAT, WPA2 with 60-character pre-shared key, WPS disabled
Second internal router with separate NAT
Comodo with Defense+
Microsoft Security Essentials

NAV & NIS are really hard to beat.
If you are running Ghostery you really don't need Better Privacy. You can go to -http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html to double check all LSOs are gone.
