Windows Defender:Off
MSE: Not installd
Windows Backup: Disabled
System Restor: Disabled
No 3rd Party: Antivirus, Antimalware, Firewall or backup software active.

Windows Firewall: Enabled
UAC: Enabled, No dimming, Notifications limited.

Been running win7 x64 this way for almost 2 years on a RAID0 array. Occasional installation and running of AVG or MBAM etc only ever find tracking cookies.

I am both lucky and stupid!

You seem to have tamed the "elephant" very well.

Add real-time protection such as an antivirus program, HIPS or sandbox.

Thanks! I have to admit, it's really good. It "resembles Chrome", but isn't Chrome. No on-board PDF reader, no on-board Flash (have to install non-IE flash like for Firefox). Also, all of the questionable privacy concerns (real or not) that Chrome has, are all removed in Dragon.........No phoning to the Google mother ship. Dragon also has some extra security features as well. Plus it has a really cool icon! It seems to be a tad faster than Chrome, and comparing the about:memory tab, Dragon uses about 20,000k less RAM too.



EDIT: All Chrome extensions/themes from Chrome's Web Store work on Dragon. I am currently using a black theme and AdBlock. Also, the spell-check function is built in like Chrome.

That's great! And yes, for security reasons, Comodo Dragon doesn't have built-in stuff (e.g. PDF reader).
