Windows 7: What security setup do you have?

What security setup do you have?

I was wondering... What kind of security setup does people here use?

I, myself, only have Avira free installed, since my usual firewall of choice - online armor - isn't yet compatible with win 7.

I use NOD32 AV, spybot S&D, defender and malware bytes. UAC also disabled

UAC disabled, Windows Firewall and Nod32 x64 antivirus, nothing else needed really.

Im wondering if i should switch to Nod32 security suit or just stay with the free windows firewall.

I'd stick with just NOD32 for the time being. Wait until eset updates the firewall to work properly with win 7

I've decided to give M$ a change to show if they can take care of my security needs. At home all rigs (2 laptops, 1 desktop) have MSE, Windows Defender and Windows Firewall.

Working well, no problems at all. I am satisfied.

EDIT: I like the extra security UAC gives. Happy to have it always turned on.
