    I sandbox the download folder, where things stay until they are unzipped and scanned with MBAM or some other anti-malware program.

    Removed Malware Defender and added DropMyRights (for Outlook, FeedDemon and P2P).

    So my setup would now be:

    Sandboxie
    HitmanPro
    EMET
    DropMyRights
    OpenDNS

    I don't believe my computing was ever so snappy :)

    Removed Adobe Flash Player, Flash Plugin, Firefox, put MBAM and Sandboxie on rest. Added Google Chrome. It eats so much ram my goodness! It eats as much ram as any traditional IS when more than 2 tabs and extensions are opened and used. It's totally unsuitable for netbooks with 1gb ram and old machines with same or lower ram space.

    Can anyone suggest me a browser which is based on Chrome and provides the same level of security and fastness yet the ram usage is considerably lower than Chrome?

    Oh!:blink: I've never tried a chromium browser except for chrome itself. If that's the case then Chrome and Chromium :thumbd:
