    Hi guys,

    After reading this thread I'm a little confused if I have enough security protection.

    Currently I have a router firewall and Windows Firewall turned on.

    I also have Microsoft Security Essentials installed and running.

    Do I need to do anything else?
    Hi BingFeller,

    You already have a good setup. The general recommendation is to have a layered approach to security, so you might consider also using the FREE version of Malwarebytes to do the odd occasional scan (since its the free version, you will have to update it manually prior to every scan so it picks up the latest malware definitions).

    Apart from that, be careful what you download, and make sure Adobe Reader and FlashPlayer, and Java, are updated regularly. Use this tutorial to help you identify if they require updating.

    Hi,

    You can run it any time you like, not neccessarily once off. I'm not sure why Kaspersky might react to it : all Secunia does is to check versions of your installed software against a database containing the a list of latest versions of the checked software.

    Because the one on that tutorial is browser-based, Kaspersky might be interpreting that as something suspicious.....possible Kaspersky settings are too sensitive?

    Try PSI as an installed application, and see if that helps.

    Curious as to why "scan filesystem objects" is not checked? On my MBAM Free it is (default setting).

    Well it does just that and with KIS - I really don't know wit the other suites - it delves into it's system and it just doesn't like it. Plus whenever I have run it with other suites (a fair while ago now it takes a long time to actually scan the file system). I suppose if it's like KIS it gets quicker having then set them as no threatening.
