Is it as strong and covers all sensitive areas as Comodo Defense+?
as far as i observed , yes. you (or it) create rules and then you can switch to "isolation mode" then anything not in the rules are blocked by default (kinda the lockdown mode of ERP)
Thanks. Sound promising.
it is , a mix between an HIPS (without kernel hooks) and a sandbox. Remind me of the old apps , glasswall or defensewall , forgot which is the correct one.
If it is without kernel hooks then it must be less problematic than Comodo's Defense+.
Yes, you are close: GesWall (also had an application rules builder in paid version) and DefenseWall
yes GesWall lol , thx for the correction. long time i didn't talk about them ^^
EMSISoft Internet Security
VoodooShield (Thanks VoodooShield for the free license!) Updated
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
Ah,the ol' days
I used GesWall for years with no antivirus on an XP operating system,never had any issues. After I upgraded to windows 8.1/10 I've just been not happy with the new operating system,soo it's time for me to move onto a new OS,Linux Mint Never been happier!
Agreed. Moved away from windows around 5 months ago. Love the simplicity, security, and reconfigurability, but linux in general it still has problems imo. Depending on the way you look at it, or how far into it. Over all, im loving the change.
On my Mint XFCE im using DNScrypt, firejail and apparmor to plug the holes that firejail doesn't cover easily. With profiles for just about everything, I feel very secure. Have not had that feeling since XP days and my old favourite Malware Defender.
What about your signature?
I've added Eset Nod32 AV ( v.8 ) to my setup.
@TS4H - I agree, Malware Defender was the best.
RT: Comodo Internet Security + ZAM Premium
OD: HitmanPro + ZAM Premium
Google Chrome with AppContainer enabled and all plugins sandboxed.
Yes I should clear that up at some stage. The first Windows 10 setup shares a dual boot with Linux. It is the configuration that secures windows 10. Linux defaults as first boot however. Windows 10 image has been unbooted for a very very long time and I have not decided yet what I want to do with that partition. The other is the default security configuration of my fathers PC. Im using him as a guinea pig to see how secure Native windows 10 is. If he cant get that thing infected, then I guess average users have a change of not getting infected lol
I cant even begin to describe how much that software taught me or made me aware, it was the reason I became interested in antivirus/ antimalware free security solutions in the first place.
OS: Windows 10 PRO X64:
VPN: Private Internet Access
Sandboxie (Firefox, Chrome and SumatraPDF sandboxed)
uBlock Origin (Disconnect lists)
All partitions (data and system) encrypted with Veracrypt
In my opinion, almost all posts in this thread are useless,
but it goes on and on....boring. Really boring...
Actual security setup should be in the signature, before any post is made on wilders.
Shame that you can't find any other threads to read that you don't think are as boring as this one.
There are a few other boring threads, but none of them pops up every day, or several times a day.
I don't find it boring, I rather like it.
Simple solution. Don't read it

No Realtime AV and Do you no longer use Adguard
No Realtime AV, I've grown to not like having one. As far as Adguard, I decided to temporarily disable it...trying out new thing's.
All understood, Adguard is always a permanent feature round here
