I still have McAfee suite running and will just wait and see what happens.
Anyone have any issues int he past?

UAC to Default

I manually scan and run the following every week or so.

Malewarebytes

Deep Freeze...............

So nothing is changed when you make modifications or install programs, as it sets it back to it's previous state.

Isn't this for use in public access library computers?

Sometimes I feel the same way.
Shutdown everything and if the ShiZ hits the fan use the last image backup from my other HD.

i remember those days...
my HS using win98 + deepfreeze (and from what i know still is using it...)
anything could be reversed with a flick of switch was the teachers thought...
and it was actually pretty cool....

and with enough reverse engineering you are able to take it out....
never liked it and never will...
but for the IT this a godsend so that regular users cant damage the OS to a extent...

Reverse engineering isn't needed, you can do it with a boot disk if you know what files to delete

MSE
UAC on
SuperAntiSpyware
MalwareBytes Anti-malware
Firefox 3.5.5 w/ McAfee Site Advisor & NoScript
CCleaner (not exactly a security product I know)
HiJackThis - checked whenever I've installed new, unknown software
common sense
If I have major dramas I'll boot up an updated UBCD 4 Win with all security enabled

I was wondering if these security softwares may conflict with each other if put into 1 system.

1. ESET Antivirus 4
2. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware[with protected mode on]
3. Threatfire
4. Comodo Firewall
