    Hi all, i was wondering what is some good security software i should install? I already have MSE, malwarebyte, keyscrambler and sandboxie. Should i install hitman pro or prevx 3.0 as well? Or would it be too much? How about software like defensewall, geswall and rapport? I am looking for a setup that would cover all my bases and rather not install software that is already similar to one another and would just overlap. Also i don't want to sacrifice too much performance with all these security apps. Thx.

    You have enough already. If you're running the entire OS sandboxed, you hardly need anything else but if only the browser then yeah some resident program like malwarebytes (the free version is not resident mind you) or even MSE to take care of USB sticks. But if you go around randomly clicking on banners/popups/ads or running shady exes from direct download sites, not even these can protect you.

    The best security is to unplug the network cable (and never plug it again) & disable all USB ports (possibly with blutack)
