    Who cares
    If an anti-virus includes behaviour blokcing functions, you must check the behaviour blocking option, etc.

    Edit: I didn't allow multiple options, please delete this topic:'(

    I use a separate internet firewall, HIPS, and a local proxy/content filtering application for the browser and other internet apps. I have backup software but it's on CD, not installed on the PC. I also have several on-demand utilities, such as integrity checkers, etc that are rarely ever used.

    This should have been a multiple choice poll.
    Voted for Sandbox, since it's my main defense, but also:
    -Virtualization (Returnil)
    -Inbound Firewall (Router+Windows)
    -On-demand blacklist scanners (SAS+MBAM+CureIt)
