    Excellent Combo there without a doubt. SD is proven a bullwark and we already know the advantages SBie is been showing all along. ;)

    Absolutley Agree.I also consider Shadow Defender a instant repair other then malware.Since I have installed it on the kids computer, I no longer have to fix what they messed up.just a simple reboot and all is well again.Like a built in technician.

    I feel your joy & satisfaction on SD :cool: I was blown away when it dismissed MBR infectors as though they were just a waste of time and knocked over cold when i manually on-purpose fudge the dickens out of the MBR Table with some excellent commercial HexEditors, and SD simple sneezed the changes right off after reboot.

    Tony truly fashioned a MasterPiece in SD.

    Lets give credit to dja2k how he started this thread back in 2005 and here we are nearly 7 years later still going strong.Also credit to all the contribution from other members as well or this thread would be empty.A ice frosted mug filled with a Ice cold brewsky sounds about right.:thumb:

    Damn, 25000 posts.

    Win7x64 setup seems perma-sussed on MBAM real-time and Comodo w/o local AV. Throw in the standard on-demands, hardening, SBox and imaging: this is hard to f'n hit, IMO. Resource usage is nil.

    So that leaves me with now perfecting Slackware *puppy* and the new Solaris 10 stuffs I'm still kicking the tires on.

    Anyhow, if you can not secure your boxes based on all the previous advice here--godspeed. Excellent and timeless thread you Wilders' folks are providing.

    Thanks to all...it helps a lot. I can check in now and then and see if I am missing any major gear. & That's a good thing *martha*.

    Cheers.

    LOL J. Panda is stomped on you heavy huh? Well what were you thinking? It's Panda....and it knows Kung Fu...you should have been careful J.

    If you use Spyshelter Premium/Exe Radar Pro with MBAM PRO, Sbie, HMP and a backup solution you got nothing to worry. That would be strong enough to keep away malware.

    Then let's start your course. Go to the top of a 20 storeys building and throw your pc with all your might. Now there you go. No more malware. No more slowdowns. No more necessity of MBAM and the addictions gone.

    How do you like it? How is Kingsoft AV doing there? Is it really compatible with other AVs? How much ram and CPU does it eat in your pc?

    I'll have to take Panda off and go back to Comodo Internet Security. Although the new changes in Panda are nice, I feel a difference in startup times as well as the occasional slowdowns. Comodo never made my system feel this way, so back to CIS I go.

    Sorry Panda:'(

    I took off Panda Just because of it's high I/Os.
    MSE is definitely the lightest AV I've ever used, and KAV there will definitely catch what is missed.

    @IronMan
    Yes it is compatible with most AVs if not all with the exception of VIPRE
    RAM: 12k
    CPU: 0% :)

    KAV is definitely a very light AV. The installation takes like 2 seconds and the GUI is super responsive. I honestly think it's lighter than MSE.

    Panda for some reason made my fast machine feel a bit slower, I had to take it off.

    In the process of choosing a new setup, trying to decide between two of my favorite setups (Listed in my sig)

    Yeah I've read that quite a lot. People are all over different forums complaining of slowdowns and high I/Os. I guess Panda Team did not give attention to this aspect seriously enough. I hope they'll soon fix it and make Panda light and fast as it should be.
