    Hi to all,
    Anyone can give very good xp to judge which combo to give the best protections to a windows box (xp client / 2k3 server), and still providing great performance for all.
    Right now, my collection is with full licenses on :
    - Ghost Security Suite (life upgrade) : runs on xp/2k3
    - TallEmu Online Armor Firewall (1-year upgrade) : runs only on xp
    - KIS7 (2-year license update & upgrade) with no firewall + no HIPS turned on : runs only on xp; KIS7 is not so great at spyware & trojan detection rate; and its heuritics engine is not so great (50% detection); I heard KIS8 is much better on this.

    Do I need a great AntiTrojan suite, Anti Spyeware worm...suite ? which one are going to run on both xp & 2k3 server.

    Thanks.

    I use Ghost Security Suite (AppDefend/RegDefend), KAV 7 (no HIPS) and OutPost Firewall. Good backup scanners are SUPERAntispyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    thanks to all.

    all are with windows xp client boxes, not for windows server 2003. As known, windows 2003 server runs more stable and secure than windows xp.

    I thought about adding either DefenseWall or Sandboxie. Is there any conflicts on your system using Sandboxie with the other programs?

    No conflicts from my experience. I actually have a snapshot with ghost security suite, defensewall and sandboxie all installed and i haven't had any problems so far. I'm still not sure if theres actually any need to run defensewall and gss at the same time, however sandboxie is a good addition i reckon.
