    Update: Instead of umatrix+ublock I now use ublock now with dynamic filtering and all filter list except easylist without element hiding rules and fanboy+esylist-merged ultimate list and I also do not use regional/language list.

    Good Evening! jmonge...I've just used the Standard Appguard...I'm not crazy about Beta Releases...but it's been a Rock Solid product for me...and the Support is Excellent...both here at Wilders...and their Head Office Support. It's a Product that keeps Improving...it would be a wise Purchase on your part! Sincerely...Securon

    I have been spending the whole weekend trying to tame Defense+ yet again. Still figuring out why do the programs still can freely access protected folders. :confused:

    P.S.: Oh, and EMET 5.1 hates CIS so much. I've got a lot of EAF and SimExecFlow mitigation popups so for the time being I had to disable the aforementioned mitigations in EMET.

    It turned out that according to Comodo's web help, the "Protected Files" tab does not forbid read and write access rights to protected folder/file but it does forbid modify access right to existing files included in the protection scope. Although I found out that setting the direct disk access right to block makes the program under this restriction to be completely unable to access the protected folder, giving "Access Denied" error. As for the "Protected Data Folders" tab, it only applies to sandboxed programs, but it makes the sandboxed programs to not being able to read the data in a protected data folder. They still can access the folder but there won't be files in it when the sandboxed programs opened the folder.

    Now, I've configured Defense+ to work as a policy-restriction HIPS. I might still need to adjust a few things here and there, but I think this setup is generally ready to be deployed in the battlefield.

    With these rulesets, the beautiful cherry trees will bloom and cover the land! Then my work will be... complete! Hmmm...

    P.S.: Also, I removed EMET due to conflict with CIS.

    I very briefly tried G Data 2014 and 2015, and ditched them quickly due to compatibility issues with Windows 10. They seem quite light, and worth trying if you're running and older OS. Then I tried Norton Security 2015. Quite a nice product and light too, but you can't make it always prompt for action instead of auto quarantining when threats are found.

    I was going to use 360 Internet Security again, but it won't install under Windows 10. There is a Windows 10 version of Total Security, but I've never liked Total Security.

    Now I'm running the latest beta of Baidu Antivirus 2015. Baidu was too heavy for my liking last time I tried it under Windows 7. It will be interesting to see how it fares under Windows 10.

    Maybe it's worth to try MBAE? MBAE free/experimental seem to work fine with CIS/CF at least on my PC.
