    SAS FREEWARE SHOULD BE ENOUGH, BECAUSE WITH NIS 2009 ALL IS INCLUDED. U WILL JUST NEED SAS FREE FOR ADD'L ON DEMAND SCAN. OR YOU CAN HAVE MBAM FREE.

    From what I know, the only probable chink in NIS 2009 armor is its HIPS. It can't detect loggers all that well.
    Anti-Malware detection is top notch, so I don't see why you would need SAS pro. Maybe MBAM free or SAS free for on-demand whenever needed.

    SAS free is all you will need.

    IMHO SAS free is enough. You could add a sandbox like DefenseWall, GesWall or Sandboxie.

    Agree - that's what I use for on demand.

    I'd run Norton 2009 with Zemana Anti-Logger and SAS on demand (free)

    NIS 2009 has keylogger protection so why bother with Zemana.

    if you need to complement a Suite than I would suggest dumping it or else why did they create a suite in the first place?

    To charge you more. :D

    Anyways NIS09 is pretty stable for people who are not downloading things they should not be on a Daily basis. I would not think anything additional would be needed. Unless you a compulsive clicker that clicks anything that says "CLICK ME". ;)

    My previous set up was Comodo,Avira Premium and Sanboxie. Now all I need and use is NIS 2009. I have never been infected in over 5 years and I download everything (porn included). I tried Threatfire with NIS and it works good but still didn't think it was needed. Like others have already said. Scan once a week with SAS or MBAM and you will be fine. And always use Firefox.

    why do you need any thing to compliment it. Isnt it enough. My Avira is and I am pretty sure Norton is. Compliment it? Sure, add a whiskey sour to Avira and it will be complete. ;)

    Has anyone tested Norton 2009 with Zemana's test suite? Zemana is more than just an anti-keylogger.

    I would consider Keyscrambler with its key encryption on kernel level...Otherwise I think the suite is comprehensive enough.
