    Checking my signature, which, if any security apps do you feel I could remove without significantly droppong my security and protection?

    I have a license for SSM, but dont have it installed at the moment as there is a HIPS in A2 and I found SSM to be a drag on the speed of my PC.

    Take it as a given that I wont be removing anything like Bestcrypt or EE as they represent almost no overhead on system resources and each performs a vital task.

    I had thought about dropping MBAM or SAS - but fel SAS is probably the better complement to F-Secure. I like A2 4 Beta - as the Ikarus engine, although generating FPs, is very good at picking up unknown nasties.

    Personally i feel asquared is not needed wit f-secure. About the mbam or sas, im in the same boat. You could ditch SAS 4 SAD n MBAM.

    If I remove SAS and A2, leaving SAB and MBAM with F-Secure, Im assuming I will still have the same realtime protection from SAB as I had from SAS?

    Yeah, you'd be using an older engine but I don't think that would really be much worse.

    Cheers for all the advice, I have removes A2 as it imposed the greatest overhead. I have Zemana AntiLogger now so happy not to have a HIPS as its data theft Im most concerned about.

    All running quite quickly now.

    Glad your all setup, now can i take over ---) Evidence Elimator, is it just as good as ccleaner or even better? Got a discount offer from Swreg so... was tempted n m looking into Zemana right now.

    EE is better than anything else in my opinion in that it does more. Have used it for years and years and it works perfectly. I know several people who use it and all of them are 100% happy with is.

    Discussing it here is a guaranteed way to get lots of misinformed people who have never used it tell you all sorts of unsubstanciated negative things about it - including "it does not work", "its a rogue app" and "it spreads viruses"

    Anything negative you may be told about it here will be wrong and untrue.
