    Changed Avira Antivirus for Avast. Avira was slowing down my computer and web browsing something fierce.

    Trying out F-secure IS 2012 for almost a week now. It is really smooth, feels light and excellent detection rate as well as really good Online safety - blocking of dangerous web-pages. Not any slow-down of browsing or file download. Some of the other AV solutions I've tried doesn't slow down download but can't say the same for the upload speed.
    The only shortcoming for now is some delay till the PC is fully up and running.

    trying something different. Since the paid versions HTTP scanner slows my web surfing to a crawl, this seems to taking care of it.

    I decided to play around with my Comodo Firewall a bit; I just blocked ALL my ports and am adding exceptions to that rule - a little for security, but a little for fun and learning too. So far I'm allowing DESTINATION ports: 20/21, 53, 80, 443, 563, 1194 (openvpn), 8080 and 35592 (utorrent) :) Source ports for these allowed destination ports are all open for my OS's choice.

    perhaps I should use 22 instead of 20/21.

    DefenseWall and AppGuard provide simular protection (with DW having a much wider protection scope).

    You can achieve deny execute with default windows capacilities (and remove AppGuard for better performance and any incompatibility risk between those 2 hips).

    Selective Drive by landing directory protection
    For any browser take away the execute rights through ACL of your default Download directory, see https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=278011 You can do the same for the directory where you have your e-mail stored.

    Optional drive by protection in user space
    Behaviour: IE does not allow to download exectables, FF downloads a null file, Chrome/Iron does allow to download but Explorer blocks execution. With the REG file (Block ON and Block OFF), you simply switch modes with IE/FF. Chrome and Iron have the most user friendly implementation (plus advantage of Chrome's excellent sandbox), simply right click and remove block. See https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1603237&postcount=1

    When on XP you need to install Fajo XP FSE http://www.fajo.de/main/ to see the security tab. On Vista/Win7 it is also available on Home versions

    Thanks, I like to have a layered defense w/o the hassle of daily updating.

    As far as a Policy Based HIPS goes there currently is only DefenseWall and GeSwall, neither which is 64-bit at the moment.
    Perhaps a 64-bit Classical HIPS would work for you.

    Not a bad choice, SpyShelter Firewall is pretty strong but falls short on some personal testing done by myself, (Xp Home SP3 32-bit) your mileage may vary.

    Thanks for the tips Kees, but I'm having no performance issues or any incompatibility issues running DW and AG together.
    Perhaps your suggestion will be of use to other members here. :)
