    My Internet Access restrictions are: firefox.exe, plugin-container.exe, jp2launcher.exe, java.exe, javaws.exe, javaw.exe, werfault.exe, crashreporter.exe.
    The last two aren't necessary, and the four in the middle is only needed if you have Java installed.

    I don't have start/run restrictions, because that's more complicated and unnecessary in my opinion.

    Panda USB Vaccine isn't an on-demand scanner, I just put it under there because I run it "on-demand" whenever I want to vaccinate a thumb drive. USB Disk Security is also on-demand because I run it prior to inserting a removable drive.

    MBAM, SAS, HMP and EEK are popular and it's so hard for me to let them go. :D

    • Bit off-topic.. But can you please tell me your thoughts on that router?
      I was considering getting it a month or two back however went with a 2nd hand one from ebay(TP-link has nice price ranges)

      Just wondering your thoughts on value for money in that unit

    He is very good, the signal is always perfect, I'm not even a complaint!

    I turned MBAM's real-time protection module back on,
    enabled Website Blocking,
    and set update frequency to realtime every 15 minutes.
    What the heck... this protection is too good to not run real-time. :)

    Ha ha... I changed MBAM back to daily update and daily scan only, no realtime.
    For some reason the protection module was slowing things down.
    It's not MBAM's fault... must be my software combinations or something.
