Windows 7: Is my security set-up sufficient ?


07 Jul 2012   #31

Windows 8.1 Pro w/Media Center 64bit, Windows 7 HP 64bit
 
 

If you want to try Secunia PSI, I recommend version 2.0.

http://secunia.com/PSI2Setup.exe

Version 3.0 was just released and it has been dumb down and not well liked by us geeks. PSI tracks security risks and will let you know when a program has a security update available. Version 2.0 gives a lot more information and control to the user.

Looks like there will be an update for 3.0 coming out soon.

Quote:
I can confirm that a list view will be added in the upcoming version, that will be released in the end of July.

Also, the version information in the right-click > help, will be corrected.

Some users have had some performance issues with PSI 3, which our development team is working on fixing as well.

The coming PSI release will also provide a link to the relevant Secunia Advisory

Well, I installed Secunia PSI version 3 and I will keep it as it is and look forward to seeing the improvements in the release at the end of this month

It seems to be enough (and more than that!) in the antivirus realm, however I would prefer to have only one real time scanning active at a time, and call all others manually, because often antiviruses may conflict between them when a virus is found and both try to remove or quarantine it.

I would add a firewall to this combination, blocking all traffic except that you know you need, even the Windows built-in might be enough. Also remember to always use a standard use account for the normal operation and if you want to use UAC, always put it to the highest level.
