    Quite a lengthy process, tons of updates to do. :rolleyes: :D
    If it was not for the updates it would be really fast.

    Well I have a ISO image of Windows 7 with updates integrated to a certain month. So if I have to reinstall Windows 7, I only have to worry about a few months of updates. :D

    Security setup: AppLocker | BitLocker | EMET | Windows Firewall | TinyWall | Sandboxie | Norton ConnectSafe, same as sig.

    Yeah, MS updates are really really slow installing. That's the worst part of formatting a PC, downloading MS updates . . . :rolleyes:

    When i say format i really mean starting all over again. :D :p :D

    Updates and configuring system services are my two least favorite thing's to do...It is a pain in the butt.

    I do like installing all the software and applying system tweaks, how weird that may sound :D

    Yes your own software and tweaks is fun but MS updates makes me want to kill something.Thinking of the last patch tuesday with 13 updates of 32 MB good god.

    I also like installing my software, it's not much anyways, just EAM + OA + EMET and my daily software such as Chrome, Daemon etc. :D :rolleyes:

    I have added Nod32 AV to my setup and set UAC on default.

    Nod is monitoring system partition, download folder, Outlook and http traffic.

    EDIT: also added Ghostery to Firefox and Chrome.

    My Dr.Web license will expire in a few months so I'm trying some free alternatives.

    Currently it's W7 firewall + W7 firewall control + UAC + MSE

    I might say this setup integrates well, is quite light, works silently without any errors or problems and offers enough protection for me. ;)

    I had to uninstall Nod32 av because of signature update problems. Every update would end up killing my internet connection. I posted about the issue in their forum but Eset never responded. I liked version 2.7 but every version after that seems to come with problems for me. Although I know some people really like Nod.

    I haven't changed my setup in over a year now... since adding Sandboxie. And I can't imagine that changing until they stop supporting XP and I'm forced to "upgrade".

    And even then, I doubt things will change much. I'll probably add EMET to take advantage of some added functionality in the OS. Maybe just use MSE if it's so light I don't notice it's there anyway (which I hear is the case).

    With a router, hardened OS/browser, virtual sessions, and safe habits... all this software becomes quite moot. I haven't posted in here in ages because I haven't had anything to say.

    A lot of third party firewalls eventually block things they shouldn't. Just go with the windows one.
