Win Xp pro SP2, on P-III, 256mb, 80gb...
NAV (not NIS), Adaware se, Ewido, Spybot sd, spywareblaster, ZA, MSAS... plus a little paranoia.
That's all about it .. No yahoo widget, no additional toolbar, no fancy things, etc.
Many people said that NAV is memory hungry application, NIS is more..
Its run smoothly..
I wonder how many security appliances people from this forum are using or their notebooks n desktops. As you increase the no of real time scanners( and other constantly running utilities not related to security), your system slows a bit depending upon multiple factors. At the moment I have installed about 6 real time scanners( in addition to other constantly running appliances that are not security related) and i feel my system realy slow( esp when I use internet--dial up victim!!).
Sometimes I feel in order to run a good securiy software bundle, we need a horse-like PC which can run fast inspite of all this load. So I thought it will be a good idea to know what sort of PC wilders, members use that runs all this stuff,-- just curious!
First I wil start from myself, I have Toshiba satelite M 70- 129, 1.73 dothan, 512, 40, 15.4, XP Home SP2`and I run NIS, winpatrol free, Prevx1R, MSAS, Antihook, Ewido trial( still guard is working), also i have a dial up monitor and about 6 yahoo widgets that un all the time.( I do intend to drop few of these in future).
Before this notebok I shared my friend,s desktop( self constructed type), Celeron 2.4, 256, 80 with XP Pro SP1 and I used to run McAfeeAv, ZA Pro, Spyware guard/MSAS and a dial up monitor on it. I did not feel it much sow( SP 1 faster than SP2 according to one of my geeeky friend-- True?).
That,s all, and I wil like to hear about your setup, security scanners etc and your experience with them.
