My opinion is, it is excellent.
I do have the paid version though. It picks up things which seem to slip by Avast and SAS !

Correction.

When browsing, I do notice the system being very slow. I recovered the imaged back to the state before installing SAS, and it seems much snappier.
I have seen in other places where later versions of SAS are resource hogs.
How is MWB on resource utilization?

MBAM Pro (Malwarebytes Pro) is even higher on system resources than SAS when the real time protection is enabled. About 75-90MB of RAM is typical. If you want more protection look into virtualization (Sandboxie) or anti-executables (AppGuard/EXE Radar Pro). I'm not a fan of multiple real time scanners, but that's just my opinion.

I have been running Sancboxie on my older desktop, but was unsure if I should put it on this new system.
Can you speak in any deatail regarding the Pros, Cons of Sandboxie?
Is it the best Sandbox software to be using?
Thanks for the imput,

In my opinion, Sanboxie is the best virtualization software out there. It is constantly being developed and has both free and paid (life time license) versions available. The pros of SBIE are simple, it makes your machine darn near impregnable to malware infection. It's also light on system resources and doesn't need daily updates. The cons are it takes a bit of using to understand how it works. For example, I set up SBIE on both of my 70yr old parents' machines and they will still download something, close the browser (I set SBIE to delete the sandbox content automatically) and wonder why its not there............They are both getting better though.

I don't use an antivirus and I now use anti-executable software instead of SBIE, but that's just me.

After running BD Total Security 2013 and SAS Live together for a week or so, I have to say that I agree with you. My system becam very sluggish, so I re-imaged back to just prior to installing SAS Pro, and it was back to running like it is supposed to.

Now I am running BD Total Security 2013 with Malwarebytes Pro - Live, and all seems OK after several days.

I will post back..................
