Realtime:
Standard User Account, AppLocker, DEP (Data Execution Prevention) for all programs, SEHOP (Structured Exception Handling Overwrite Protection) enabled, UAC (User Account Control) at maximum setting password protected, EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit), Windows Firewall 2-way Control, Router with UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) turned off, Built-in Admin and Guest Accounts renamed and passworded, Autoruns disabled.

On-deman:
Windows Defender, Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Gmer, Emsisoft EmergencyKit, Microsoft Safety Scanner, Kaspersky TDSSKiller + Process Explorer and Autoruns.

Imaging: Windows Backup and Restore

P.S.: Who would feel 'naked' with this setup could put Sandboxie in the mix or DefenseWall for 32 bit systems and admin accounts.

I have been using Bitdefender for the past 3 years and I'm happy with it.

well if you mean system stability and ferformance then i must say this setup is petty light on resource. Avast is real time and its one of the lightest AV available today. Also no AV can give 100% protection so layered approach is generally advised in all the forum (even here). Which include to have some ondemand antimalware scanner. MBAM is ondemand so does not take resource at all and is right now best antimalware scanner available today. Hitman pro is standalone program does not require installation. Running the browser sandboxed is very safe because incase my browser get infected by some malware code still my system remains safe. Windows firewall is not that great and its outbound protection is turned off by default and is not easy to configure so i need a firewall so that i can monitor outbount connection because if your system gets infected malware usually try to send your data. Winpatrol is a nice little program which monitors windows in real time and stop any system modification which malware usually do. And also i use secunia psi to keep all my app and OS up to date. I am only testing prevex from few days and now i think i don't need it i will remove it soon

I have not faced any slowdown with is setup but still i would like some overviews from other about this setup. Can you specify which app i don't need

Regards
