Importance of customizing / possible conflict advice

Am about to install BOClean (and grateful for it.)

  1. I notice in the installation instructions that there are customization options. Is BOClean just fine installed as is or are there highly recommended options that aren’t “standard”?

  2. Any known conflicts with the following on an XP system?

  • NOD32
  • Comodo Firewall Pro 2.4
  • AdAware 2007 Free
  • SpySweeper 5.5.1
  • Spywareblaster 3.5.1
  • Spybot 1.4
  1. Is there anything unnecessary or overly redundant in my list?

  2. Any key protection missing?

Thanks!

I’m running with Comodo Firewall Pro 2.4, Spywareblaster, and Spybot with no conflicts.
Also Avast for AV.

Perhaps others will add to the list of compatible programs.

Answer : It is just fine as it is installed.

2. Any known conflicts with the following on an XP system?

Answer :

* NOD32 : No.
* Comodo Firewall Pro 2.4 : No.
* AdAware 2007 Free : Not that I am aware off.
* SpySweeper 5.5.1 : Not that I am aware off.
* Spywareblaster 3.5.1 : No.
* Spybot 1.4 : No ( The same for 1.5 Beta ).
3. Is there anything unnecessary or overly redundant in my list?

Answer : You don’t need Spybot’s real time protection when using SpySweeper.

4. Any key protection missing?

Answer : Yes, you should/could add a HIPS ( Host(-based) Intrusion Prevention System).

Thanks guys.

And what are the best/most highly recommended HIPS?

In appreciation,

Hi Chamlin. Your best bet would be to look/post here:

If you want to know more about HIPS : http://wiki.castlecops.com/HIPS_FAQ

Personaly I would switch to CFP 3.0 with HIPS as soon as it becomes a BETA ( It’s an ALPHA release now ).

Rednose’s link is actually also in the HIPS board I posted earlier, but it gets you directly there :slight_smile:

Installed BOClean with no problems.

Thanks! (L)
