I use MSE, Full version of Mbam, Private firewall 7.0, WinPatrol, Peerblock the spyware block list only, Spyware Blaster, Open DNS with dns crypt, Malware bytes anti exploit (its still a beta test product), MVPS host file, Panda usb vaccine, I disabled remote access, netbios and remote registry and windows media player network and sharing in the services and it all seems to run OK on a little netbook with an Intel atom and 2gb of ram.
Is there any thing I could add/do or take away to make it a better more secure setup without compromising userability as it is a low spec system.
Thanking you

Fairly easy install, minimal system impact, few compatibility issues: Install EMET

Beyond that it's a secure config. Don't forget your choice of operating system and browser also make a difference. Browsing with IE10 is the safer than Chrome, or Firefox. Windows 64-bit is more secure than 32-bit. Windows 8 is more secure than Windows 7...

Thank you pointing out about IE10 is safer than Chrome and Firefox I never realized this.
I will install Internet Explorer 10 and EMET.
Whats your view on PrivateFirewall? any good?
It seems to have plenty of options for the user and its set out is simple, I like simple.

Thank you Admin :)
