    In XP, I ran a RainMeter skin that showed I/O detail for all disk volumes - a visual heads up for unpredicted/unaccounted activity, but I haven't re-written the skin for 7.

    Nothing extraordinary.
    I just use this to monitor my I/O details :P

    That' s nice. My skin ran in a 1920x64 frame at the bottom of a 1920x1136 desktop and was visible at all times. And showed substantially more system info in the same frame, including I/O detail individually per volume.

    RainMeter has come out of beta. Version 1.x is now available. It is way cool.

    I cannot say enough good things about RainMeter. I stumbled across it when I was LiteStepping in XP. Dropped LiteStep once I mastered RainMeter.

    Only Windows Firewall here, but also running ThreatFire alongside MSE. I didn't get a score because ThreatFire popped up and asked me if I wanted to kill the process since it seemed malicious and it killed the process and quarantined clt.exe. A simple delete after that.

    Oh, IMO You shouldn't have deleted it. I think this is what it does. It tries to check many ways that a true malicious code or something does to get our system. So if you get popups asking to block it then your ok, and if it doesnt get any popups and runs on and youll get a score saying that your not ok. I too got so many popups during the test and all i had to do it was to block them.

    No choice. It's either allow, kill process or kill process and quarantine.

    ThreatFire is not a firewall per se, but it will stop software like that from trying to create havoc on the system. If I allow it, it would be the same as me saying allow to a firewall prompt. Then it gets through.

    I get what you're saying though...my score would be so good at the end though either...

    Doesn't matter...I tried again (running Nod32 right now instead of MSE for fun) and Nod32 killed it while it was downloading...couldn't even try a test again.
