    Thanks very much for the link, it is an interesting article, which I added to my bookmarks. I have been searching for these types of studies, but took the obvious (wrong) road by searching for buying decisions (while I should have been searching for influence or advice during information gathering).

    Yes, I also advice Panda (good testlab ratings, easy to use, and has option to lower app-advertising). Only after world cup soccer final of 2010 :cry: until 5-1 win in Brazil :devil: I adviced Avast

    I have gone back to Webroot. I cant get used to the slowdowns of other AV´s (Emsi, Kaspersky, Bitdefender). But when I look back on the around 8 years I have used WSA, it has kept my machine free of nasty malware. It seems they have dialed the engine in. I see the name more and more in "What AV to use" etc. As it is, its the best for me.

    What a "secure" configuration should have in my opinion:

    • Real time protection
    • Behaviour Blocker - HIPS
    • Anti-executable
    • Firewall

    Options can be for ordinary users:

    A decent antivirus solution with built-in firewall + VoodooShield
    A decent free antivirus solution + VoodooShield + CFW (disabled HIPS so we have VoodooShield)
    A decent free antivirus solution + VoodooShield + Windows Firewall (maybe WFC)

    The decent antivirus solution can vary depending on your needs and hardware. Search for the one that suits your PC the best, since antivirus do not perform the same on every system.

    Never CFW for ordinary users, even they made it simpler, it is still to complex for Average Joes.

    This one is more useful than blindly sandbox everything! you just need to take time and read alerts:notworthy: if you don't know about services, file, reg keys or alerts(if you are like me) then google it!the answer is already there:D blocking everything not gonna help me ...if I'm gonna auto sandbox smth then why should i run it? :) the protection is in HIPS! the av or bb not gonna tell me the Yandex browser going to create a reg key!

    Yes! HIPS is very usefull indeed. I just find HIPS + anti executable a bit over killing.

    Good call. Last time i used CFW it didn't seem that complex, but it may be due to the fact i'm an advanced highly trained robot.

    I think that comodo cloud is easier than cfw. Personally I feel comfortable with him, in terms of his consumption and protection.
