Been on the trial for 3 weeks now, I agree, no issues, no false +'ves, and light too.

I think I will purchase when trial is up.

Windows 7 Home Premium x32 SP1
 
 

Realtime:
Router Linksys,
DefenseWall Personal Firewall v3 (beta)

On-demand:
ShadowProtect Desktop,
ShadowDefender.

That's all. Very strong and very light setup without AV in realtime.
This is my config since May (Windows 7) and since February (Windows XP).

Had an Update.
Now Using
AV : Microsoft Security Essentials beta
Firewall : Comodo
I saw an article in about.com regarding firewall issues and they had a nice link to https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 Where I saw some neat Explanations regarding Firewall and Internet Vulnerability. Then I used Leak Test and it said that it has Penetrated my Firewall.

So I started using Comodo, and now it warns me about any firewall penetration and I think its better for me

Seems Like that site is Good.

Steve Gibson is a good man. He has his detractors, but all genius comes at a price.

SpinRite is an absolute must have application.

Wow. Checked their Demo Video, Thankz Antz, Thats One Cool Neat Application. Yup, But wish it had some trial specs like minimalized usage or something so we can see whats there. It seems worthy for $89. Wish I had that much. As you said it surely is good for Cooperate sector and Many Home users.
