    Hello all
    I'm a newcomer.

    At the moment I run Windows XP SP3 with Avast! and Comodo firewall.
    I got Melwarebytes and scan once and a while with quick scan.
    I also run a limited windows XP account(no settings changed in safe mode, default limited mode)
    I run Opera as my main browser.

    Just wondering what more should I be running to protect my computer.

    Should I run one of UAC programs Surun,DropMyRights or SuDown?
    Should I be running a sandbox? I can run Comodo sandbox, is that as good as Sandboxie?

    Thanks for reading.

    Welcome to Wilders PD! :)


    you're pretty good.

    i would add Sandboxie.
    it is better than Comodo's sandbox.

    edit:
    i don't see any imaging app in your setup.
    that should be your top priority.

    UAC programs are optional. They may be convenient, but aren't necessary with a separate admin account.

    Also add ClearCloud DNS or BitDefender TrafficLight and SUMo or Secunia.
