Windows 7: Is my security set-up sufficient ?

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

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.
