    Today i uninstalled Avast! Free. (Thanks for keeping my computer safe past 10? years.)
    No real reason, Just wanna see how this works:
    Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus
    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO

    2 weeks ago, i also did start using:
    Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit BETA and HitmanPro.Alert 2.5 BETA.

    How does having Chrome Extension ZenMate help me at home if i am not trying to get past a Firewall or get to Banned Sites. Will it help me be more secure when online shopping and banking.

    From the ZenMate FAQs...

    Regarding my own use of ZenMate, I think it is an awesome extension.
    The only drawback is it often results in a performance hit, but lately that seems to me to be getting better.
    I definitely use it when ordering online.

    Plain and simple, that Eset deal is a steal. One heck of a product that will keep you very safe and at that price, it is a buy, buy, buy.

    I am currently giving Mozilla Firefox another spin. Before I was using Google Chrome. It's more a continuity of concept issue as I was not discontent with Chrome. The principle is to run all threat-gate applications under the supervision of AppGuard and Sandboxie. Since LastPass no longer works if I run Chrome in Sandboxie (nacl64.exe issue), Firefox gets a second chance. Of course I relish the opportunity to use the solid NoScript extension once again.

    Windows 8.1 built-in Defender still runs in the background, because it doesn't bug me.
