    Haha cookie eater. The funny thing is when you called it malware smasher :D I used to like Emsisoft but I didn't like what they did to OA Armor Firewall (which I also had a license for) so once my license expired for EAM, I moved on to something else.

    Then explain it to me! But I have done some reading and I think I know what you guys mean. I believe VS did started out as an exploit blocker, but now it tries to be a full replacement for AV's, via whitelisting and their "AI based" AV scanner. I'm also using whitelisting on Win 8.1, but I dumped EXE Radar on Win 10, I got fed up keep having to disable protection when installing apps. OSArmor is a nice replacement.
