No offense but your mouse avatar somehow reminds me of my maiden Aunt Molly. I recognize that you are a security pro & I'm not. However, I have offered my opinions & supported those opinions with facts. You have offered only opinions, without offering supporting facts. Please: either show where my facts are incorrect, or offer your own supporting facts. I would rather learn from you than argue. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ @ all -- IMO, some of the preceding comments indicate that their writers manifestly ignore the tremendous security power of retaining a separated file of clean images. This is true, whether one is using patched OS or un-patched OS. With daily or bi-daily imaging, the need moves from primarily protection to primarily detection. For example, a file integrity checker (e.g., ADinf) doesn't protect real-time but it is an excellent form of detection. Once a nasty is detected, simply restore a clean image and... POOF!! The sun shines, the birds sing, a soft breeze blows, & all is right with the world. Anti-exe + behavior blocker + HIPS + ADinf + imaging + THINK! = 99% bullet proof, no matter which WIN OS is in use (maybe even Win10 ).
