    Me either. I see no point in if you keep your programs up to date.

    According to this article, on average, an exploit is 10 months old before it gets patched. During this period EMET can protect users from some of this exploits.

    Using it makes perfect sense to me.

    Do "tech preview" mean more stable than beta or vice versa? Something like release candidate?

    I would say it's something like RC.

    Isn't this why we keep disk images? Unlike most people I could hardly careless if I got infected. Just mount my stored image and I am up and running within 45 minutes. :thumb:

    Well sure restrore in 45 minutes. I can do that as well, most here at Wilder's can I'd wager.

    What I'm wondering is what data your trojan / parasite shipped to the mother ship all because your setup lacked EMET?

    Cause I don't live life paranoid like most Wilders members. I read the geek news daily. I keep tabs on about 20 different sites which keep geeks like us up to date on whats going on. Keeping well informed and up to date is the first steps in staying malware free. I am a systems engineer and if Emet was so vital we would be using it on every pc in our buildings.

    i tried 2.0 before.

    not using it any more.

    the less of these things installed the better i think.
    i'm more concerned about security software than malware, to tell the truth.
    i certainly got way more aggravation over the years from security apps themselves than malware.

    Gentlemen: Lets just not slip into name calling like paranoid. Not needed.
    You didn't answer the question put. Saying you are a systems engineer and if EMET were good all in your location would know it and use it makes no sense.

    To be fair, I didn't see Moontan resort to any name calling. I do believe you quoted the wrong poster. I also believe Moontan has a fair point in that you're more likely to have your system choke and have issues by constantly playing with security apps than you are randomly getting infected. I one hundred percent believe that. To answer the actual question, I used v3 but have since removed it.

    I don't use EMET.
    I do recall having tried it once on an XP system, but for one reason or another I lost interest (or perhaps didn't feel like putting in the time required to learn it) and uninstalled.

    There isn't much to learn outside of setting up individual apps through it (which now is done through an included template or custom ones). Usually EMET boils down to it either works silently until it detects an exploit, or it causes instability and you either turn a setting off or kick it to the curb.
