For those that may be looking for a good security setup, here is what I'm currently using and am extremely happy with. I have done some serious testing and these have proven themselves. This post is not meant to say one anti virus or anti malware solution is better than others, it is simply my opinion and personal experience. Everyone has their favorites and their own experiences. Shadow Defender
For me, Shadow Defender is something I use when I am going into unchartered waters. I wouldn't be in Shadow Mode all the time. Shadow Mode allows any changes to the system to be reverted right back to the way they were when you reboot. So no matter what you do to your system, it will be right back when you reboot. This is an excellent testing app as well, allowing you to go to places you might not normally go and not have to worry about infecting yourself with malware. It's easy to use and very easy to understand.
I just did a test for the heck of it. Entered Shadow Mode and tried to infect myself. I had a pretty large list of rogues, malware, you name it, whatever I could find.
The good news? After rebooting, SD did it's job, every single thing was back to the way it was when I entered Shadow Mode. There really wasn't anything that needed to be reverted, but I did move a few things around and delete some things just to see what might happen. All were back to where they were supposed to be when I rebooted.
The really good news? My combo of Avast 5 and Malwarebytes Pro did not let a SINGLE piece of malware infect my system. NOTHING got in. This was seriously a list of about 50 links. I also tried to go to various sites I know to be bad, and I simply could not infect myself. Avast Malwarebytes
So, with that being said, I feel pretty darn confident with Avast and MBAM running in real time and when I know I am going to go somewhere that could cause issues, I'll go into Shadow Mode and be even more confident.
Shadow Defender is $35 for a lifetime license, Malwarebytes with realtime protection is $24.95 for a lifetime license and Avast 5 is free. So for $60 you are really covered in my opinion.
