    Great going. No need to change anything if we've got a solid setup. ;)

    Anyone using Fortinet or the lite version these days? I have not seen many posts about it here the last few months but saw it did fairly well the last RAP tests.

    Why would you need spyshelter when you've got KIS? Spyshelter's features are mostly covered by KIS. Correct me if I'm wrong. :)

    actually very light. I really like it and I feel it covers fairly well.

    I hate to say it though, I really, really wish Webroot and just kept going with Prevx instead of WSA. I just think it would have been a more sucessful choice, in customers and $$$$.

    Good Morning ! I agree 110% the brand should have been kept as Prevx...because of consumer recognition...and acceptance. Prevx a division of Webroot...fairly common business practice. Sincerely...Securon

    Just the sound of the word 'Prevx' is cool, 'Webroot' sounds mediocre.

    Well,mostly because of the fact that if some malware tries to disable KIS (which is a possibility these days with all AVs),i have another line of defense in SS.If KIS doesn't detect it or couldn't stop it,SS will.

    But conflict will arise. And that is never a good thing. My recommendation is you remove ss and let KIS do it's job. If you are counting on the threat of KIS being disabled by a malware I think you're ultra paranoid.

    You could always report it to the Support Team. They would be more than happy to help be offering a possible fix.

    1.Conflicts didn't arise and all is fine.If it will,that's why i have CTM.As long as these 2 are getting along together,i don't see any reason to drop SS.
    2.Are you using all in your sig on 1 pc?If yes,let me tell you that EAM and OA are more than enough for security and Mbam real time and WinPatrol Plus are more than unnecessary.
    3.I wasn't there when it happened,but my cousin's pc was replaced by it's vendor because of a virus attack.Don't know the details,but the only thing is for sure is that the first thing malware did was to shut down Panda IS.Happened 3 years ago.What i'm trying to say is that will always be a possibility to get a targeted malware and get your security suite disabled,as long as the bad guys create them.If this make me ultra paranoid,then so be it,I am.

    1. I agree. :)
    2. But none of those perform the same thing as your ss and kis do. So taking my setup to compare is incorrect in this context. I always support a layered security approach but condemn the use of two software doing the same thing exactly in the name of layered security.
    3. I agree to some extent. While the threat is there, I do not think one should use two software doing the same thing to minimize the threat.

    Oh yes they do_OA does the same job as WinPatrol (startup entries,BHO,toolbars,new sevices installed etc),except in a far more extent and professional way,as we all know,as a pure HIPS.And EAM can successfully detect and kill all the nasties that MBAM covers,and even more and better,due do its file guard, behavior blocker and surf protection.That's why WinPatrol and MBAM are redundant in this case.
