Windows 7: What security setup do you have?

My Westell router is set to Max, its WiFi is set to specific Mac addresses.

In Windows I use Agnitum Outpost Security Suite 2957, UAC enabled, Win Firewall & Defender are disabled.

PS - When torrenting I set the Westell to allow port forwarding.

I use Kaspersky (Windows 7 beta) behind ISA 06 endpoint firewall.

i've never used any other AV apart from NOD32. I'm a regular at VB Bulletin and am always impressed with Eset's product. I've tried others but never for long. NOD is unobtrusive, easy to configure (even the default settings will suffice for the novice user). If I'm convinced another product would do a better job, I'll switch but I've yet to find one that works better for me.

I agree, NOD32 seems to be MUCH better than Kaspersky, norton and others.
On Windows 7 7100, I mostly used Kaspersky Internet security 2010
On windows 7 6956, I used Norton 2010 beta which was OKAY, but VERY annoying and stupid features.
Now, on 7600, NOD32. The best of the best.

thanks to the post on how to remove the avira pop up. I did it. i now got rid of avast and have avira and i think its alot better. Also advised a couple of friends who are also running win 7 to get it and they did and it found viruses that avast missed. I can't think of anything bad about it besides the safe web search but i downloaded mcafee site advisor for free of there website.

Windows 7 ultimate RTM x64
 
 

UAC on
windows firewall off
kav 2010
outpost firewall [which fails some old leak tests]

my xp setup was a bleeping fortress compared to what i have to settle for now,it passed every test i did with it (i mean kav 7+outpost+me ),but my current win 7 system with the latest products from both those vendors fails half the tests that they discovered on xp
i sure hope that agnitum would fix those hips issues soon

I'm with you too. They still tag Win 7 support as beta, so hopefully they'll get it squared away soon.

MadMax, can you elaborate the leak tests that you are currently failing? Also, have you tried Outpost Security Suite build 2957? It does seem toi catch all outgoing requests under the Rules Wizard policy.

it fails firehole/wallbreaker/dnstester,outpost version is 6.7 x64 running on win 7 ultimate rtm x64.those are ancient tests and outpost blocked all of them on xp 32 bit.
and it seems to me that what's failing is the hips feature,and according to this i'm not so surprised anymore
i've never used OSS cuz i'll have to give up kaspersky to run it

**EDIT**
outpost is on Rules Wizard policy on my end too

**EDIT**
ghost leaks too
