    Being such a security noob, I was wondering if the combination of Windows 8 Pro 64bit; Internet Explorer 10 (SmartScreen on); AppGuard on high was all I needed to be safe from malware. I use VirusTotal; Hitman Pro;MBAM for download checking.

    Thanks,

    You'll probably get 50 people saying yes, and 50 people saying no.. it all depends on you....

    With AppGuard on, I bet it will be 95 to 5 for Protected votes.

    I would enable the Enhanced Protected Mode in IE10. And install EMET.

    Otherwise, that should be plenty.

    using Win8Pro, IE10, Appguard and Deepfreeze here. I don't use EMET cause I read it doesn't run well on Windows 8...Didn't test it though.
