    @Krusty13 Yes, finally. I really like VoodooShield and HMP Alert because they give very good protection, while remaining very unobtrusive, and not making my system run slowly.

    I use a basic setup that works for me. The built-in OS features such as Updates, Firewall, UAC and Smartscreen are all enabled on default with the exception, Windows Defender.

    Windows 10 Home 64-bit
    Sophos Home
    Zemana Antimalware Premium

    To configure Sophos Home, you must have a Sophos Home Dashboard account where you can manage all your connected devices (Windows, Mac, Linux?). There are three main settings Virus, PUP and Web Protection modules. By far, Web Protection contains the most choices for web filtering, with options such as Allow, Warn and Block for each type of site.
    The Automatic Virus Protection and PUP can only be toggled On/Off, but you cannot enable PUP, if Automatic Virus Protection is disabled. All events are logged and can be viewed online per device, and if needed, exceptions can be added for Files/Folders/Sites.

    The Sophos Home Dashboard site itself has an automatic log-out timer. +1 for this, as I may access the Dashboard on other computers.

    I use Google Chrome as my default web browser with LastPass and recently added Adguard AdBlocker. For Wilders and MalwareTips, I use Microsoft Edge. No Ads, am I right?

    At this time, I cannot share more details.

    I dropped Appguard. Around Xmas I was having trouble with my computer, had to reinstall my OS 4 or 5 times, the last time my AG license wouldn't work, too many activations I guess. I emailed Blueridge about getting a license for the new beta about a month ago, no response. So I'm done with AG.

    I need some advice

    Do you guys think Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is redundant, while running along side VoodooShield, Since VS would more than likely stop an exploit?

    Any thoughts on this is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    I emailed Blueridge recently to reset my key and they responded promptly saying my key had been reset.

    I just downloaded HMP alert as well but I'm not very familiar with it. Is this the best free version? It doesn't interfere with AV?

    @Brosephine You will need to buy as it's only free as a trial. It will work fine with antiviruses, and doesn't appear to be slowing down my computer.
