Okay let’s see.
Spybot’s TeaTimer prevented it from being added to startup, CPF prevented it from connecting to Internet, so I guess that’s a sign that my security produtcs works.
Anyways, here’s the score:
Score: 88, Excellent
Firewall: Excellent, no problems.
Virus protection: Excellent, says virus database is out of date, but there’s no newer avalaible.
Spyware protection: Excellent, no problems.
Windows & Browser: Good, tells me to enable automatic updates, which isn’t going to happen.
Wireless security: N/A, since CPF prevented it from connecting it didn’t detect my router.
PC utilities: Good, suggests me go get a back-up program, tho I burn all important stuff on DVD’s.
P2P software: Poor, wants me to uninstall it, but I won’t.
Here’s what I’m using:
Firewall: Comodo Personal Firewall
Virus protection: Avast! Home Edition
Spyware protection: Spybot Search & Destroy, Ad-Aware and Spywareblaster
Windows & Browser: Windows XP Service Pack 2, Firefox
Wireless security: Router
PC utilities: Advanced Windows Care Personal, Ace Utilities, CCleaner
P2P software: LimeWire for music, else µTorrent
Firewall - Excellent
Anti virus - Excellent
Windows & browser - Excellent
Wireless - N/A
PC utilities - Good
P2P - Excellent

Process Explorer 10 from Microsoft (Sysinternals)
Sysinternals Anti Rootkit
MS malicious software removal tool
Windows Defender (realtime protection)

As of 1 Feb 2008 switched to the following:
Comodo Firewall (So far very impressed!) thank You Comodo !!
Switched to Spyware terminator
Testing Comodo Antivirus ( I feel brave - don’t usually install Beta software)
Generally avoid gaming/P2P/warez/gambling etc.
Don’t open attachments or click on links via email.
Note: In my opinon the score is only half the battle. Education is more important.
does aol active security monitor works on vista?
only saying that because:
a) doesn’t recognize vista firewall
b) tells me that system restore is turned off when it’s on
c) won’t detect my wireless network
