    µBO and Privacy Possum are a great duo!

    Hey Page42,

    Yeah, it may be overkill and Privacy Possum rarely has much to do but I do use both extensions.

    TY Bertazzone and Krusty. Privacy Possum is now installed on both 7x64 computers. I've read that "the extension indicates blocking activity by adding a number to its icon", and I don't see much of that happening. And neither do I see that there is much configuring to do.

    Page42, no there's nothing to configure. I rarely see a number on the icon, probably because uBO has most tracking covered, but I do see a number on some sites. There's one when I visit here for example - https://community.norton.com/en/forums

    Same experience here as @Krusty. I use µBO in medium mode so it blocks even more than default. No configuration needed for PP. It may show only "1" most often when there is something to do, but "1" may mean blocking trackers from 20+ sources. You can check it and see. These two extensions cover most everything. You can add Decentraleyes if you'd like to tighten it up more. :thumb:

    TY again, Bertazzone and Krusty. I will look into adding Decentraleyes for Chrome, as long as there is not too much redundancy between it and uBO and Privacy Possum. :thumb:

    I use to use it back in the Xp days after Look n Stop became extinct.
    Working fine on my new Windows 10 laptop, it's a keeper for me.

    I've tried dozens of programs the past 15 years, these are the ones I've stuck with the longest.
    Avast, Malwarebytes,Win Patrol.
    EAM, Appguard, MBAE.
    EAM, MB3, Voodoo Shield
    EAM, MB3, OSArmour

    Now, Windows Defender with "Configure Defender" MB3 and OSAmour.

    Unfortunately I"m not the only one using this computer so I need something to install and forget with minimal popups. If I was the only one I'd armour up with EAM, Voodoo Shield ( lifetime license ) and AppGuard ( lifetime license), safer than Fort Knox.

    If I decide to change it up I think it would be WD with VS.

    Greetings/Salutations,

    * Comodo Cloud Antivirus (ccav) latest version working great!!!

    * I really like Comodo Cloud Antivirus (ccav) And their Sandbox...

    * Reason that move in this direction is because of SO support and
    maintenance will cease by the end of December 2019. You
    can find this information over on MT.... On Sandboxie...

    * Also, check out their Comodo Portable Sandbox Plugin......

    * Kasperksy Anti-Ransom for Business version 4 latest.....
    * VoodooShield latest version 5.01
    * Privacy Eraser free version and /or portable version.

    * The rest is up to you.... plus or minus with your options....

    Care to provide a link?

    As far as I know, there and here at Wilders, end of Sandboxie has (so far) been debunked.

    Hi Paul

    You are correct, nothing at MT is anything but opinion. BUT. I am seriously looking at other options. I now have to question that a company that uses so much web stuff as Sophos does, can't get stuff working quicker than they have. I also have to consider that the business model is a problem. Too many lifetime licenses that don't provide revenue to support it. I would hope they would consider changing the model for the licenses and continue support
