    I figure this is a good thread to dive into wilders after looking for a year or two.

    Gateway: PfSense 2.3.2_1, dedicated PfSense Appliance. (Quad Core 1.9Ghz, 4GB Ram, 32GB SSD, Intel NICS) Suricata w/6000 signatures, Adguard Family Safe DNS.
    Wireless: Unifi AC-LR Access Points w/AP Controller, VLAN segregated SSIDs, complex SSID names for rainbow table avoidance.
    Desktops: Panda Protection Service (Web Filtration, Firewall disabled), Zemana Anti-Logger/Malware, Kerish Doctor.
    Browsers: Chromium from Woolyss (No sync • No WebRTC • No Widevine), uBlock Origin and uBlock Extra. (Default+ MVPS+All Tracking and Annoyance Filters)
    OS: Hardened, Privacy Tuned Windows 10.
    Cloud/Backup: Sync.com zero-knowledge cloud service with extra-encryption level using Fort Encryption.

    Thanks guys any suggestions please advice!

    ReHIPS? without speaking about isolation system, VS is already doing the job.

    CylanceP ? On the last Dan’s video, it is not really convincing.

    Really do love your set-up, dude. Naught for nothing but mine is similar. Toss out the AppGuard and include the Chrome extensions ADGuard, Browsec, and WebRTC Leak Prevent (oh, sure... SD, SpyShelter FireWall, Avira Free, MBAM premium, Last Pass... yawn). What really intrigues me is that Raxco addition. Gotta say, nice touch! I'm a year or so from upgrading to a terabyte HD and currently banging it out on a Dell W7, nowadays teeny tiny 500G hard drive// 181 GB used space and 232 GB free to pollute as I wish.

    Not that you'll cross this post soon or even be inclined to reply at all, dear LonelyWolf... please pray tell if you think that 232 GB free space will be enough playground to rock & roll that Raxco addition. As much as I'm infatuated with Macrium and an external hard drive my other pressing $$ obligations don't cut that mustard now for such pleasantries..

    Recap: 181 GB used/ 232 GB wide open. To Raxco or not to... that is the big Q. TY big time.
     
  6. Possible second setup for 2017 :D

    Yesterday I tried to help a friend with a borked up Windows 10 which started into automatic recovery followed by an oflline Windows Defender scan. I could not get it into manual recovery, it kept looping and failing, The brother of that guy had made a recovery CD but that did not work. This evening the brother will take the disk out and put in a simular machine (he runs a PC repair shop) and will scan for malware and promised to mail me when he got the image running again.

    Having read the internet stories about automatic repair loops I wonder what has happened with F8? Any info on getting W10 out of automatic repaid loops are welcome. When there is no option within Windows to control this anymore, I will fall back to may latest Windows 7 images tomorrow afternoon.

    Should be plenty of free space, I have a bit less than you with absolutely no issues. I would suggest giving the free trial a spin to see if it suits you.

    My boring setup, VooDoo Shield and EAM. In my opinion this combo is 99.99% effective. Should I add Appguard to cover the other 0.001 %?:p
     
  13. I already returned to my old Windows 7 image and updated it. Keeping Windows 7 for a while to let all updates trickle through.

    I have applied this on my Asus Trasnformer with windows 8.1. Thanks for posting.

    With Appguard, you will add pain for this 0.001% imo.

    Yes ... it's paid version 2.07. I think LNS is more focused on pakets / port filtering but of course it's able to create process rule Including ability to launching other process facing internet. It does not includes HIPS / BB module, although it can control checksum of processes and DLL's. PFW in my opinion is more focused on detection / rules of processes and it has nice HIPS / BB module - it's rebuilt Dynamic Security Agent.
    BTW...LnS and GSW have been removed...currently there are only DSA and NVT ERP only :)

    I am running Windows Defender (up-to-date), Malwarebytes 3.05.1299, and VoodooShield 3.50 (all active scanning)
    with
    HitmanPro 3.7.15, Emsisoft Emergency Kit and Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (each scheduled/on demand scanning)

    Is this sufficient, or overkill? Or is there a better alternative all-in-one?

    Comes down to preference, but I don't think you'd need MB if you're actively scanning with the on-demand software. Similarly, I'm using WD, VS and HMPA.

    Thanks for the reply but I was just being a goof, I do have a license for AG but really don't think I need it.

    I don't think its overkill, a solid setup , anti-virus, anti-malware and VS. Have all your bases covered.
