Re: What AV are you running?

Outpost Security Suite 7.1 + Malwarebytes.
Not really running it though just did my first scan in 61 days. Not sure if it real-times, mainly use it for HIPS and firewall rules?
Hardly ever install any programs as it's got what i want for sometime.
Only surf with Sandboxie so i'm hoping nothing will try and slip through.
Rather use my resources on Folding than waste it on resource hogs with a high priority on them.

AV nowadays is less important now.
Patching the OS and software applications is the number one important step to keep in mind here.
And a firewall with HIPS.

There are also Group Policy settings in Windows also which is overlooked. Of course, An average PC user would not think of this.
But well worth the effort to lock down the OS and IE browser via the GPO Editor.

And common sense.
