Real-time protection: Malwarebytes Antimalware
Do you have MBAM Pro?

You can NOT just rely on MBAM to remove viruses. It is not a replacement for an antivirus. It is highly recommended that you get an antivirus program like (These are free although you can get paid solutions if you prefer) Avast Free, AVG Free Ed., Avira Free Ed., Microsoft Security Essentials, Panda Cloud AV Free.

The reason why you can not just rely on MBAM is because Malwarebytes is a second opinion scanner and can work as a companion to other Antivirus programs. MBAM catches malware that other Antivirus companies typically miss.

should i worry about Usb Protection because i was infected many times from those Devices?
Yes if you commonly get infected with those you should have a USB Scanner so you do not get infected as much.

Why not EAM (main AV) + MBAM pro (companion) ? this is a very good combination. one of the best RT scanner + the best OD scanner

1. Disable Autoplay.

2. Install an Antivirus with realtime protection.
- Panda Cloud AV Free with Panda USB Vaccine (to replace BD USB Immuniser)

OR
- Avira Free Antivirus (includes USB Protection)

3. Force Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) to run in SBIE.

You can reduce the risks without installing more software.

Why would you say your Security Risk is 'High'?

I would leave MBAM as on demand scanner and use Emsisoft Emergency Kit on demand as well, but that is just me.

EAM should be your realtime because it includes features designed to protect you from 0-days malwares like the Behavior Blocker, MBAM is purely a companion AV and it is perfect for that.

High because of worms and malware comming from usb and i think there are infected Computers in my network ..

What about paid Antivirus programs wich have a usb Scanner i can buy one of them but its to important to me to be light one !

ESET does have removal media scan. Not the cheapest but decent.
Between 60 to 100mb ram but its light. You can ask lovelyboy_lion, stranger etc.

Also ESET has web protection, so you could remove K9.

I used to run ESET with Panda URL Filter (toolbar removed). Then removed since I barely seen Panda kicking up.

You could use Kingsoft AV 2012 (standalone or companion AV), it's free. Low memory usage too.

It includes USB Defense, but I still recommend disabling Autoplay from within Windows.



However, you should be protected it you utilise Sandboxie to maximum use, by running using Drop My Rights and forcing Windows Explorer to run sandboxed.

I'm not sure if you understand my english. :huh:

How you do that exactly Earth, (i mean what setting)?

Drop My Rights I can understand but forcing Windows Explorer to be sanboxed, wouldn't certain services and processes be unable to run inside sandboxie?

I think Earth means:
1. In Sandboxie Control, use Sandbox > Create New Sandbox.
2. Right-click the new sandbox and choose one of:
a) Run Sandboxed > Run Windows Explorer
or
b) Run Sandboxed > Run Any Program and type explorer.exe

But I am not sure how can the above be forced. Sanboxie itself to me is still a Pandora Box. I'm like a 5 year old kid with a big bag of sweeties when it comes to Sandboxie
