    That's been my exact setup for the past year. Works nicely for me and seems to have all bases covered.

    Well that is a phenomenal compliment and I appreciate it greatly. Although I would suggest that your rule creating skills and new ideas with regard to rule creation in general has far surpassed my own rule creativity now, without a doubt. And I am absolutely thankful for you sharing your rule sets in the Bouncer and MemProtect threads.

    It's great that you see now, with all of those Excubits security tools, you are in the driver seat of your own computer. You are not putting your trust in the security of your computer in the hands of some gigantic worldwide security companies in which you have no idea what rules and such are applied behind the scenes on your system. You are in control of your own security needs, and I think that is important more than ever these days. :thumb:

    Got rid of Zemana cause of FP's. Tried Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool, but not sure what it adds other than just signatures for ransomware. Seems a bit heavy as well.

    So, I'm going to try VoodooShield again, this time letting it be automatic (manual annoyed me last time).

    Mmm why? Did you have a bad experience with it or...?

    I have tried few others vpn apps too like ipvanish (google search gave me warning every time when connected, it was annoying), private internet access (client seemed more like a virus to me than anything else and had a hard time to completely get rid of that sh*t), nordvpn (didn't like the client software at all..)..

    Purevpn I like the most and it works perfectly fine for me, I don't see why should I get rid of it without a any good reason..
