I'd like to slim down on the security applications I have actively running. I'm not looking for different programs. Believe me, I've tested a lot of configurations. Please only knowledgeable responses. Thanks.
OK my specs. Pretty standard hardware. I built this system, I think over 3yrs ago. Not a gamer nor a video editor. So I don't give a hoot about the latest & greatest. Antec case & antec PSU 350watt, 2 - 120mm antec fans 1 in/ 1 out. Asus mb integrated vid & sound (yes I don't care). 2 x 512mb crucial ddr 2700. AMD 2500 barton, stock thermal pad & hsf. 2 drawer HDD for easy cloning & swapout, not hot swappable. DVD rom liteon, TDK 32/10/40x CDRW & FDD. I'm on cheapo unlimited $5/month 56k. XP vlk SP2 updated.
My active security setup. Set to go on Windows startup: ProcessGuard 3.2 Full, NOD32, Sygate pf (last freeware version), Regprot 2.0, Trend Micro Anti-Spyware. Then after startup I start Teatimer (Spybot S&D) & WinPatrol.
Passive protection: Bugoff, SpywareBlaster, xp-AntiSpy, ScriTrap, DSOstop2, Harden-It, SocketLock & Windows Worms Doors Cleaner.
