    3rd, I am planning on creating a LUA and Parental Controls and then creating a new system image soon.

    I have LUA & SRP on my XP desktop, no exceptions in the firewall, xp firewall and netgear router, firefox with several add ons and 3rd party cookies blocked, DEP enabled for all programs...you cannot get better speed and stability and security is more than enough for me.

    Chrome + Sandboxie on 3 machines and Chrome + Shadow Defender on my son's computer. Anti malware scanners are still the quickest way to to check downloads and anti-executables for default-deny strategies.

    So, hmm.. Why havent anyone done eny kind of setup guide? I find it surprising, as like you said it's an excellent addon for security. I do have the time to make one :) The problem im facing is that i dont have enough knowledge to make full setup guide, registry goes over-my-head. I did find one nice link from 2010, it has lots of info on the subject including the registry (deny DLL's). I hope this helps, would do the guide if i could :(

    It sure is. Oh! And I'm unable to send you any PM right now. It says, 'Daily PM recipient limit reached - PM system temporarily disabled.' So I'm gonna send the PM tomorrow if you know what I mean. :)

    yeah but after that I cannot send any pm. I've hit my limit. Anyways, I think a very strong combo without realtime av is Faronics AE + sandboxie + Chrome + Image for Windows.

    Just BasicLinux 3.5 and my own code to run newer stuff.

    PS. BasicLinux 3.5 predates Win 95 16 bit prerelease version!

    At essence I don't trust any third party to be able to definitively judge whether anything on my system is or isn't bad, so I take it for granted that it is unless I know it. Hence following a clean install of OS and programs my system is monitored for any changes by scheduling elevated deep scans with Tiny Watcher on system idle for 20 minutes. Any change = wipe and load.

    To proactively reduce the likelihood of infection I tighten the threatgates by connecting through Norton DNS and adding Noscript to Palemoon and Content Blocker Helper to Opera. Opera, Flash, PDF reader, the Office application, and Windows Mail are also protected by a forcefield of sandboxes.

    To match the coverage of the Threatfire/Defensewall combination on my 64bit machine, I'd probably need to run a firewall/HIPS like Online Armor with Sandboxie, but I'm not sure how much better it would be than the Windows 7 firewall and a router.

    I thought threatfire was basically dead? It hasn't been updated in ages and the forums are desolate. I eventually just stopped using it because it didn't seem to add anything to my security setup.

    To go with Sandboxie, I'm now running Privatefirewall instead of Mamutu.
