Hello & thank you for sharing your configuration, @Mr. Tech!:)
I like the way you cover all the bases from your preferred software to your choice of extensions.
Well done!;)

For those times you don't open Chrome in a sandbox, I set Google Chrome to block 3rd party cookies.
  1. Click the Chrome menu
    on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Settings,
  3. ..and then scroll to the page's bottom, & click Show advanced settings.
  4. Under "Privacy", click on the Content settings button.
  5. Check the box "Block third party cookies & site date"
  • Additionally, you might consider marking the circle "Keep site date only until you close your browser".
..and consider using "Incognito" which clears history & cookies at the session's end.

Thanks for reading all this too!:D

Consider removing Driver Booster
Consider removing SAS & SpywareBlaster in favor of some other on demand scanners such as HMP,EEK,Eset Online Scanner,etc.
Good config! Thanks for sharing :)

Mr. Tech

I changed my Chrome settings to block 3rd part cookies & I am installing EEK as I post this.

On the other hand I will consider removing SUPERAntiSpyware but I won't remove SpywareBlaster as it isn't a scanner, but a malicious website blocker that is updated monthly.

Also forgot to mention that my UAC settings is set to maximum.

I know what SpyBlaster does but in light of everything else installed,including SBIE,it is just something to consider and definitely not a requirement.Making the real time protection lighter would be a more pressing matter

Mr. Tech

Why the over-lapping real-time security apps, and how many website blockers do you need?
MVP HOSTS, SpywareBlaster, and Web Companion are all different things and blocks different sites.

Mr. Tech

In essence they do the same thing, but function differently. Why not add PeerBlock?
PeerBlock has a lot of glitches, the first time I tried it the program wouldn't even let me update it just gave me an error in a endless loop.

@Mr.tech-> How much RAM have you installed? Just curious, certainly you more RTP modules watching your back from malwares. Bleachbit(BB) is a worthy companion to CCleaner, but be careful with the options in BB.

Mr. Tech

Does anyone have any suggestions as to any programs/software I should give a try? (I like testing out new software :D)
