    If you do frequent images, you can go with any AV program - even MSE. I stlll would run scanners from time to time to get rid of at least all those tracking cookies. I sometimes have over 150 after only 3 days.
    What do you mean by even mse
    Its not such bad software :)

    MSE is good for a free AV, but even Microsoft does not recommend it over paid-for AV software. Sure it's better than AVG and McAfee, but its not in quite the same league as Bitdefender, Trendmicro, Norton and the like. Thats why we always recommend using it with MBAM or Hitman Pro, and having a decent firewall.

    MSE is OK for the "light" user. I had some problems with it and went back to Norton. That is a lot more robust. But I also do frequent images (3 times per week). So I can always bail mayself out.

    Running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with UAC Maxed.

    Windows Defender, BitLocker, and Windows Firewall

    Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, SpyBot S&D.

    Main Anti-Virus Protection - Kaspersky Pure or ESET Nod 32 - what do you guys think is better? And maybe Comodo Firewall.

    Browser ProtectiOn:
    Pop-Up Blocking
    Private Browsing
    NoScript
    AdBlock Plus
    WOT
    Better Privacy
    KeyScrambler

    This is the protection I will be setting up as soon as I have my new computer.

    E-Mail Protection - E-Mails for different uses: Friends, Web Subscriptions, Family, Spam, etc.

    iPhone Protection: SecureWeb

    Don't know about Router Protection.

    I think I'm pretty much safe :)

    Mate I am biased as everyone knows but if I were you Kaspersky 2012 ISS - the Pure is ok but gets complicated. Drop the WOT (see screen shot) as KIS does the same thing for you and best of all KIS has online banking. The firewall is just fine and it will switch of the Windows one anyway the defender needs disabling too the rest get rid of them you will not need them.

    If you go down this track message me I'll give you a top flight config / setup for KIS.

    You can run anything in a safe run if you want to but use it as a stand alone as it does NOT like other ISS's on with it.

    I also run WPA2-PSK on my modem router.

    The only one that is acceptable is the free Malwarebytes and then you need to have the scan settings right.

    Yes i am not a big fan of mse and better to use some extra layer of security with it.
    As far Trend micro is concern i feels it falls in category of mcafee and avg.

    MSE is OK for the "light" user. I had some problems with it and went back to Norton. That is a lot more robust. But I also do frequent images (3 times per week). So I can always bail mayself out.
    The last and best things which saves computer is "Images and Backup"

    Hum GP that seems like an awful lot of overkill and well if you are not having any conflicts good luck but I am surprised you aren't.
    You are right but Thanks i am not feeling any conflicts on machine.
    I had uninstalled Emet and can only ditch zemana among other as no other software I can remove from machine.
    Hitman pro had no impact and i tern off Mbam Real time and only use Realtime when i visit suspicious websites

    Yes GP turning it off when not in use good move and there are some other good on call scanners besides Hitman especially if you suspect a rootkit or some other very undesirable creepy.
