    MSE + Comodo Firewall & Defense+
    I've got MalwareBytes installed but I hardly ever use it. Although I do update it weekly, I just never actually...scan. lol.

    Was a longtime user of NIS...we'll see what happens when the 2012 version goes gold and ESET 5 hits...

    Its a shame you don't do a weekly scan with Malwarebyte's, I could live without MSE and rely on Malwarebyte's to fetch anything with a simple scan. There are countless threads here and on other forums similar to this one that involves people solely relying on their anti-virus to fetch any and most viruses yet they don't. Or people like you who just don't bother using it. I highly recommend you reconsider scanning with Malwarebyte's.

    Going to try DefenseWall soon. Looks great but I'm not sure how much I'll like it.

    Is it okay to have both MSE and Malwarebytes? Do they conflict in any way?

    No. Malwarebytes does not run any type of real time shields nor do they scan any type of files unless you manually tell it to.

    I personally had MSE, Comodo, and Malwarebytes all installed and it worked flawlessly.

    Thanks for letting me know. I guess I'll have that in addition to MSE.

    Windows 7, ESET Smart Security, Google Chrome.

    Kaspersky and Norton Internet Security are just as effective as ESET and therefore good alternatives.

    I am in the process of reviewing new security software for NBR, so keep an eye on the front page. :)
