    I have settled on two security configurations. Which one would be more secure for a high risk surfer? Would anyone suggest an alternative setup?

    Setup 1:
    Prevx1
    Antivir PE Premium
    Win XP Pro firewall
    BOClean
    GEsWall 2.6 RC1
    Spywareblaster
    Linkscanner Pro 2.6
    FDISR
    Firefox 2.0.0.3

    Setup 2:
    NIS 2007
    GEsWall 2.6 RC1
    Spywareblaster
    Linkscanner Pro 2.6
    Firefox 2.0.0.3

    This setup would be good:

    KIS6
    Prevx1
    BOClean
    LinkScanner Pro
    Firefox

    Thanks WSFuser

    I have decided to combine Prevx1 with NIS 2007 (setup 2). However, I am a little concerned that Prevx1 might conflict with NIS.

    I'm an extremely "High Risk" surfer and to be quite frank, I've never really had an issue (knock wood) w/ the setup in my sig.

    FD-ISR & ATI as insurance policies ;)

    I have not tried that combination, but Prevx1 generally gets along with antivirus programs so it should be ok.

    If you use XP Firewall, check out FirePanel XP. This allows you to monitor connections and permitions easier.
    If there's a better one, i don't know.
