@Sarah. Excellente!

I would like to add Web of Trust and Dyn Internet Guide as they can help reduce the risk of infection for many users.

at one time i tried to find a free low-jack app for my notebook. i ended up encrypting my entire hard drive with Truecrypt which wouldn't recover my computer but made my hard drive virtually useless without the password or reformatting it. be sure to burn the recovery.

I think that this topic should be sticky with the backup one.

As I mentioned in another thread just minutes ago, another free alternative to Sandboxie that I've been using and happy with is Returnil System Safe. Sarah, I use all the above mentioned layers of security many of which I've found out about here at HTG in the time I've been coming to the site. Thanks for putting it all together for others.
