Windows 7: More Security

24 Aug 2010   #11

Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1, Archlinux x86_64. Elementary Luna

Off topic, but i find these threads somewhat amusing, Why? because everyone always no matter what puts in what they use and what they i guess want YOU to use.

I'll just recommend the top security software people on this forum use.


These two are the most recommended

  • Windows Firewall
  • Comodo Firewall (link) - Free
  • Online Armor (link) - Free/Paid
  • PC Tools Firewall (link) - Free
  • Outpost Firewall (link) - Paid

Extra Security:
  • MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (link) - Free/Paid
  • SuperAntiSpyware (link) - Free/Paid
  • Hitman Pro (link) - Paid
  • Sandboxie (link) - Free/paid

There's more i probably missed but seeing many threads like this one. That's a list of recommended software i see.

And about true crypt, what if have dual boot (win and linux)
Google it, it's more complicated than standard full disk encryption. I posted instructions on mydigitallife how to do it some time ago. Truecrypt doesn't do anything other than prevent people logging on to your machine (if you're using full disk) or seeing your files if they attached your HDD to their PC. It doesn't make your files any safer while mounted. I use it anyway just for the sake of it not reducing performance at all, and you log in once with a password anyway (if you're a single user) so you might as well type your password at bootup and enable autologin- takes the same amount of time then
