    Just switched to v3.0.672.0 from 2.7 last night, and so far it seems to run just fine. I used the Blackspear settings on 2.7, just because I figured it's more secure, and I never had any problems that I'm aware of because of using those settings, so I'm wondering if anyone recommends using them with this new version? Reason I ask is I was reading some posts about when advanced heuristics and runtime packers are enabled, that people are experiencing periods of 100% cpu usage, and I believe that the Blackspear settings will have those enabled. Anyone have any feedback/advice on this? I'm just an average home user.....maybe the Blackspear settings are overkill oro_O Or, should I just use the Blackspear settings and disable advanced heuristics and runtime packers?? What do some of you do? Thanks in advance!

    I used Blackspears settings when I had 2.7 but decided to go with the default on V3.0.667.0 for more user interaction as some of Blackspears settings tend to automate things. Thats the sole reason as I believe the defaults provide adequate protection.

    The best way is choose for yourself and you will see what settings suits you best.

    My main concern was seeing if a lot of people experienced high cpu usage with those settings, as I explained.

    While Blackspear's tweaks work very well for advanced users, <defaults> work well, too.
    If you are unsure that what you have tweaked is working successfuly or not, you can always revert that particular tweak to default.
    Though, Blackspear's tweaks Rock :)

    Yeah, I used them with 2.7, and never had any problems, I see people complaining about cpu usage, but apparently it's not everyone.
