    Just bought an Emsisoft license. Trialed it for a couple of weeks and liked what i saw. It has a lot of processes, using a lot of ram, but very light on cpu. Good detection rates (bd engine) and the BB is very good.

    Nice.

    Do you use the paid or free version of Sphinx Firewall.

    Any better than say Glasswire?

    Plus Version (Paid)
    I haven't used Glasswire in some time, nor did I run it long (at least from memory)
    So I really couldn't say.

    @LoneWolf

    Could you tell the different between Raxco Instant Recovery and Raxco Instant Rescue?
    And are you still using Raxco Software as of 02/08/2021?
    And there any con's with Windows 10 OS?

    I'm not LoneWolf but will try to answer, then he can correct me. Yes, IR works perfectly with W10. You can do more with Recovery than Rescue but in terms of reliability of recovery, they should be identical.

    @Acadia,

    I appreciate your insight and giving better insight on
    Raxco Instant Recovery and Raxco Instant Rescue.

    I hoping to hear Pro's and Con's ......or anything to watch about the above.

    Thank you....

    As Acadia stated you are able to take more snapshots with Recovery then with Rescue.
    Still on my laptop and I don't see a reason to change in the foreseeable future.
    Works fine with Windows 10.

    I decided to try Trend Micro because of good review on MT forum and I like it so far. If there won't be any problems I might use it as 4th AV :)
