You can add Malwarebytes and Emsisoft Antimalware to your on demand scanners.

I recommend you upgrade to windows 7. Windows XP will drop out of updates in 1 1/2 year windows 8 is coming out in October so you can wait until then.

For ice dragon you could get Adblock.

Welcome LoneGeek,

Looks like you got everything covered. How is PC Tools Firewall Plus, it's not being developed last I heard?

Would you be willing to upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8 when the time is right (best suited to you)?

It is unusual to see users with PCTools Firewall.

Do you have any backup solution?

You could also add Emsisoft Emergency Kit as an on-demand scanner, along with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware recommended by Malware Maniac.

Other than that, solid setup.

yes EEK is more suitable than EAM (EAM is needed only for the full (paid) version

I do believe they have started developing it again I can't remember where I read it though.

I'm happy with XP but will upgrade eventually

Why's that? It's a great firewall and has never failed me.

I use mbam and eek once in awhile but my favorite tool is hitman pro, I just wish they would make a free version :(

Well don't expect a free version. A program with five engines and most of them paid, the antivirus companies want some money for their definitions.

I think reading the first post should help McLovin. :p

Btw, I noticed you switched to Windows 7 SP1. :D

Hello,
I won a Bitdefender license so I have added that to my config.
Is this good by itself or should I add 0-day security such as mamutu?

Avast and Sysrestore have been removed

Bitedefender should be more than sufficient for you , its the best rated product out there , so no need for extra programs wich slow down your pc , remember : less is more =)
