    More features / Enhanced protection.
    As you may be able to tell from the rest of my set up, I don't mind paying a premium for a more secure online experience. A bargain in my opinion.

    I noticed Appguard Solo :thumb: (indeed not cheap), worth the investment.

    How I wish they offered a cheaper option for non-enterprise users; I would be happy to have no support other than for licensing issues (like resets). There would always be some help from testers here, or at MT.

    I had a $30 Granite license, one renewal of which AppGuard honoured, but I stupidly let it slip as I had a beta license at that time.

    There was a 40% off offer at the end of November. I would consider that, but it would only help if it is not a one-off ... $90 is a bit steep in sh1thole country currency :D.

    Each partition is a different OS? Or all are on the same system?

    Been a long time since I last visited this thread. I quickly realize that Windows Defender is now the most commonly used AV in this thread. A lot have happened in just a few years!

    EDIT: I also noticed Sandboxie is rather uncommon these days. I wonder why? Maybe because the browsers' sandboxes are good enough and that with Windows 10, many applications are safer to use?

    Pricey, perpetually needing a fix everytime apps have major code change.

    You may very well be right. Tzuk sold Sandboxie at the right time.

    Sandboxie is a app from the win7 era, not very suited to the everchanging win10.

    And when MS will implement Chromium-edge and the application sandbox, Sbie won't be needed anymore for home users.

    I haven't had many problems using Sandboxie on Win 10.

    Not everyone uses Edge :)

    My bad, I thought that Kaspersky Cloud was also free.

    Too bad it's simply a rebrand, because it sounded cool. I wonder what the Mac version is going to be like.
