WARNING

As I've test the incompatibilities, patches, and scripts on my virtual machine, I have made tweaks to this configuration both concerning system and settings. The tweaks I've made to this system are critical and will cause system instability if not configure automatically. In addition to that, I've made custom scripts made with AutoHotkey to optimize the compatibility of some of my security software. These scripts are unique to each software and are converted to an executable. If you wish to copy my configuration, PM me or do extensive research as the scripts and settings that I made for my configuration are critical to compatibility and optimization.

Cool ... The permutations for a good "free"security config are almost endless IMO..
I see less reason for a config "not" to be free.

Personally,I would recommend..(as you say that your friend is not too tech-savvy)...
1) Free Isolation - Sandboxie
2) Free Anti-Exe - Voodoo Shield
3) Free AV - Avast, AVG, Avira (and/or Crystal Security)

I just bought a Toshiba notebook with XP home edition installed. I am using it as a wireless notebook with a LinKsys router. Everything works fine except for the Config Free program which came installed on the Toshiba. I have wireless access to the internet without any problem. I have called Toshiba support three times so far but they can't seem to be of any help.
When I turn on the Config Free program, I get an error message that my wireless communication switch is not turned on even though it is turned on. The program starts fine, the blue radar screen loads but I cannot see any networks on it and it tells me that the wireless lan is (disable)...sic.
The program worked perfectly for two days at the beginning but has not worked since. I keep getting an error message.
If anyone has any suggestions to why it tells me that my switch is off and ways to fix it, I would really appreciate it.

Securalive free vs 360 Total Security vs Panda Free
 

A:Securalive free vs 360 Total Security vs Panda Free

360 Total Security Essentials is all that is needed. With Avira and Bitdefender engines enabled, RAM usage is high... but only when interface is open or scanning. It will only be a real problem if user always has interface open.

Protection far outweighs the RAM usage. Plus, 360 Essentials is very user friendly.

I keep a casual security config. I don't keep a bullet proof security setup because it is cumbersome.
Also my device is slow and weak which further discourages anything elaborate.
After reading other configs, I decided to get a strong AV ie Kaspersky, changed my dns to Norton, maxed my Adguard settings and do monthly scans.
 

A:RVS Security Config

If you have a slow device than kaspersky should not be your security program of choice. It runs heavy! Especially if you have a laptop ; it sucks the lifeblood out of your battery. You would be better of with win defender , emsisoft anti malware or eset. Ad kb ssl enforcer to your browser as an extra security meassure. Also think about getting a backup program like aomei backupper standard , better safe than sorry Thanks for sharing your config!

Maybe you could use a anti-executable like NVT exeRadarPro , it uses low resources and then complement it with an On-Demand scanner like Hitman Pro ; so you will be protected without having a real-time AV eating up your resource usage.

Very good config.

A few notes and additions:
You might want to add a firewall application, since Avast Free Antivirus does not include any network firewall or HIPS (behavior blocker) components. These components are an essential extra layer of security.
For these tasks, I would personally recommend COMODO Firewall (free) which contains three powerful security modules:
1. Network Firewall (allows you to control connections coming in or going out of your computer).
2. HIPS ("Host Intrusion Prevention System" checks any file for suspicious behavior and allows you to create rules for how that file should run and what it can do on your computer).
3. Sandbox (virtual environment for isolating unrecognized or potentially malicious applications, so that they cannot harm your actual system or files).
COMODO Firewall is an extremely powerful application, and with a little bit of configuration it can become a very effective security layer. In case you run into any trouble configuring COMODO Firewall, there are many COMODO users here on MalwareTips who are all eager to help.
If you see that you do not like COMODO Firewall, you may use Sandboxie as a virtual sandbox application for isolating suspicious files and running applications (e.g. browsers) securely in an isolated and protected environment, without having to worry that any malicious files may harm your computer. (note that Sandboxie ... Read more

Hi !

My current box:

HP netbook Atom N450, 2GB RAM, 1 TB HD.

Running a customized Windows NT 5.1 (XPSP3) patched with POSReady updates until EOL in mai 2019.

I only run my OS in stateless ramdisk mode for performance, security and privacy reasons.

Just started using security and antimalware software.

I used an unpatched XP with NO Firewall and NO antivirus for several months and I never got infected as far as I know. (The C drive gets flushed after reboot so it's hard to tell)
For a long time I exclusively used brain + ramdisk to stay out of trouble and I has worked like a charm.

At the moment I am busy hardening my OS to stay safe in the future.

Using my "obsolete" Windows XP daily for online payments and banking without any fear...

Haters might say that Immunet sucks and why would you use that. Well, the newest version (5) is much better and works like a charm, tested it myself and it has a very nice detection.
Haters might say why don't you use a firewall and a zero-day component. Well, I actually don't need a firewall (yes, DON'T NEED) because I don't handle weird stuff in my real machine. Also, Immunet does have some sort of zero-day capabilities so I'm fine with it.
Even though Avira is disappointing at the moment, their little browser extension is very good and I use it for its web filtering capabilities (Immunet doesn't have that one covered).
I also use uBlock to get rid of these nasty ads and keep my sanity at a decent level.
I use MBAM as a second opinion scanner, and VT uploader to clarify things.
I'm not using OS updates because you know why, I don't like that guy that wears glasses, is the richest man in the world according to Forbes, and still pretends tons of money from us.

Great config for me
I like Immunet @Daniel Hidalgo also showed us many examples of his performance on system. It is also very light.
Agreed about Avira browser safety (ABS) extension is very good against harmfull sites.

I would recommend Emsisoft AntiMalware for an on demand scanner. And you don't have to put a link to extensions people will be able to find it and you don't have to put hxxp:// unless if the link directs toward a malicious site which in that case goes into the malware hub.

i need any backup software
my hardisk is from 2 year old dell laptop
1 tb seagate barcuda
i think laptop hard disk more reliable than normal one

for backup
normal person who don't virtual box as main
my above config are not good
but what if your hard drive don't have high failure of chance
here
my personal tip never buy hard disk from online read fully
reason because
they have higher chance of failure than normal one
laptop vendors hd are good choice if there hd fail like normal one
that will no joke imagine if amazon 1 star hard drive rating replace with laptop rating

whole model will stop selling

normally hard drive work for 4 to 5 year

think carefully
which has more failure rate ?
normal hardrive you buy from online or store
or
laptop drives

tell me ?

these config are from htpc

GlassWire is a network security monitor, but not an antivirus, you are at risk if you only use it as real time protection on Windows 7!
You can add Avast as a good solution.
Add a backup plan by using Macrium Reflect free or another software of your choice.

Hi,
My Kapersky Total Security is about to expire so I need to think about if I want to renew it or simply go to the free AV route.

One thing to consider is that I have Malwaresbytes (lifetime) installed, so I though that maybe paired with Windows Defender could be a decent option to keep my PC secure.

I'm downloading some torrents, so yes I could grab some viruses one day, but I don't click on everything that look untrusty.

Could Windows Defender do the job paired with Malwarebytes or should I renew Kapersky (+/- 20$ for a year)?
 

A:Chojo's Security Config

If you like Kaspersky then by all means renew it - but Windows Defender, Windows Firewall, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium, Automatic Updates, UAC and Windows SmartScreen is really sufficient as long as you use common sense.

You should download Sandboxie and sandbox your torrent(s).

Hello everyone

Can someone has more suggestion to secure my PC at extreme level
 

A:Vishal's Security Config

@Vishal Kumar Singh

Welcome to MT.

You already have decent security configuration.

At the most extreme for Windows you can harden Windows OS, add Software Restriction Policy and Anti-Executable software, and finally, light virtualization software.

The most extreme would be to migrate to Linux - but I don't think that is what you wish from your post.

Hardening the OS involves researching tweaks and disabling features in W7 that are never used.

Software Restriction Policy software include Blue Ridge Network AppGuard, Excubits Bouncer and NoVirusThanks Smart Object Blocker.

Anti-Executable software includes NoVirusThanks Exe Radar Pro, VooDooShield and Faronics Anti-Executable.

Light virtualization software includes Sandboxie and Shadow Defender.

My signature shows a popular configuration amongst some security soft geeks.

Notice I have no AV suite installed - don't need it.

I don't bother hardening the OS except for a few tweaks - such as disable remote assistance.

Hello,
Here is my security config.

Update: 2/12/2015
Real-time Protection:

ESET Smart Security 9 (potentially unwanted applications: ON; potentially unsafe applications: ON; Removable media scanner: OFF)
HitmanPro Alert 3
NVT EXE Radar Pro (lockdown mode) + (block all process exetuted from external devices)
MCShield 3 (1st layer USB infection prevention)
Privacy:
Added F-Secure Freedome VPN

Browser:
Added Cyberfox and remove Firefox (all browser run inside the Sandboxie)

Other Applications:
Added some "exploitable" applications (reason why I add HMPA)

I do this setup to minimize removable media infection, because my machine works with a lot of removable media file transfer. "Shortcut Viruses" is currently popular malware spreading throgh USB here. The bad thing is, ESET eventually can't detect and remove this virus, MCShield does! So, I disabled ESET's USB scanner and put MCShield to do this job.

One thing, I am a happy clicker on the internet + (Common Sense Internet Security 2016: ON )

May this setup looks overkill? But I dont faced any issues nor system slow down.

Thanks for sharing your config, but you have an anti-all pc, well is not a good idea, if i were you i would use malwarebytes into passive mode /free mode/ uninstall comodo firewall and xvirus as bitdefender total security cover what those programs does. And i would recommend you to uninstall and leave only the necessary extensions, due to the fact that they consume a lot of ram and make the browser more unstable and some time they may crash. in resume just use what you need. is not true the fact that with many antimalware soft you will be protected, it is the opposite.

Comodo and bitdefender are not good friends... having them on at the same time will cause a hole in your firewall... because none of them will be able to work correctly

A pretty standard security setup. LTSB is preferred since it takes out all the junk like Cortana, etc. without the need to hack into the ISO with things like Winreducer. Windows has been heavily modified after installation to remove telemetry and other possible attack vectors, such as networking.

Avast takes care of things at the executable level (while also acting as a firewall, software updater, and web filter), Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit takes care of things at the network level, and SpyShelter deals with spyware and acts as a HIPS and sandbox as a final layer.

At the browser level, uBlock Origin blocks the majority of advertising and tracking that lead to malware, Privacy Badger acts as a heuristic blocker, Popup Blocker Pro blocks popups on poorly designed websites, and HTTPS Everywhere defaults to SSL/TLS for website security.

CCleaner (enhanced with CCEnhancer) is used to clean system traces and Bitlocker is used to encrypt the entire OS overall. Recovery keys are stored on a Sandisk Extreme USB drive encrypted in a 7z archive.

I do not have an actual backup system nor an imaging system in place as I mostly rely on System Restore and File History built into the Windows OS, and I have had bad experiences working with Acronis True Image, etc. in the past.

This functions are still at original.

When I download a file which I don't know or trust, I scan it with HitmanPro, Malwarebytes and Kaspersky.
If it is a big file or software I run it on VirtualBox at first for testing what it does.
If it is a small file I upload and analyse it on virustotal.
Generally I run and test unknown/untrusted files or programs on VirtualBox before running on my "real" system.

I run a full system scan sporadically but minimum once at week. Sometimes daily.
For a full system scan regularly I use HitmanPro, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner and JRT by Malwarebytes. Sometimes I download Emsisoft Emergency Kit and let it also scan.

As Router I'm using the ASUS RT-AC87U. It has nice features like VPN-Client, AiProtection by Trend Micro (phishing-website detection & block), Exploit-detection and blocking infected systems in Network.

It works and is sufficient for day-to-day computing...

Bottom line is that it works very well both on my specific system and for me personally. Consequently, it is security configuration that I will continue to use...

It's primary disadvantages include:
Adguard and KeyScrambler Pro\Premium are paid software; Comodo and KeyScrambler Personal are freeware
