    I'm also wondering, despite what stats state, I used to run into a lot of malware many years ago, but nowadays nothing, nada, absolutely clean as a whistle, and if I'm infected then I'm not aware of it.

    Streamlined my setup one more time by removing sandboxie and adding emet both were my guards against exploits. Emet just has a better ease of use (to me) and added HMP.alert

    @blasev,
    HMP + Forticlient is a great combo. Nothing beats HMP on demand file scan and Forticlient's Web Filter.
    Im considering to use this combo some time in the future. Forticlient is one heck of a good AV and really unappreciated in this community.

    My set up is my signature +
    - Zemana Antilogger Free version
