As stated by the ABE developer:
"Discontinued in favor of uBlock, a general purpose blocker, that not only outperforms Adblock Edge but is also available on other browsers and, of course, without "Acceptable Ads Whitelist".

slow down mate .. easy ...
thats too much !
and i seriously doubt , the system especially a Windows PC will behave normal under such a setup .
there is bound to be increasing number of conflicts , now and then .
some evident and some in the background , some vanishing and some slowly compiling which would ultimately drag a machine down to its knees ..
if not at present , then eventually in the long run .....
even if you turn off some modules from an application , still there are so many things in the program running in the background you never know . Norton Security products are a classic example of this ...
My Setup --
OS -- Windows 7 Ultimate .
Browser -- Firefox
Add Ons -- WOT , Lastpass , Key Scrambler , Ghostery , Better Privacy , Track me Not , Flashblock , Bitdefender Quick Scan .
Firewall -- Router and Windows Firewall Control .
Scanners -- Active -- None . ( although use Eset SS , but removed it from last one month .. )
--- On Demand -- MBAM , Superantispyware , Hitman . ( all once in two weeks to a month . )
Added -- Sandboxie ( esp for opening unknown programs , RARs , unknown links .) ,
Scotty the Watchdog from WinPatrol ,
Virustotal windows menu extension ( quick chek up of things ) ,
DNS -- Google or Open DNS or Ultra DNS . which ever is the fsatest at the time .
MVPS Hosts File and Peerblock ( not on a regular basis )
Secunia ( for keeping all the security patches installed and the software up to date )
Cleanning with CCleaner armed with CCEnhancer , System Ninja .
Music -- AiMP 3
Video -- KMPlayer .
and Common Sense , simply knowing what to , how to , when to , where to ...
all works good for me ...

Makes me look like a simpleton...lol
For me it's much simpler...
Full time AV/FW - NIS 2012
On demand - Hitman and MWB
File/Folder crypto - Folder Lock 7 (256 aes)
Drive crypto - TrueCrypt (only for 1 of my esata externals)
P2P FW - Peerblock
Browser: FF10 with noscript and norton safeweb
PC: My SSD boot array drives (4 x 60GB Ocz Vertex 2s) are self encrypting (256 aes) and I have the ATA password enabled in bios. My drives are unreadable by any other machine. Even resetting the CMOS is useless as the crypto key is stored on the drive(s).
Last resort...a thermite charge rigged to blow with just the push of a button...j/k

With some thinking. I feel that it's best for the forums if we have only one general thread about it. Hence, both the threads, Whats your security setup? and My Security Configuration (by 6enii) are merged.
the above statement makes me laugh and it makes me wonder if you really want "whats best for the forums" why would you do things like this?!?
Why would a child-like spam post with (eventually) 10,000 spammy replies be good for the forums?
