This is a complete revamp of my security environment and a first time with Kaspersky. I was using comodo firewall with custom settings but after last moth's windows update it started to have issues and I was in no mood to spend time fixing cis, hence I opted for a solution that doesn't take too much of my time to setup and run. A big thanks to @harlan4096 for his guide on setting up Protected Folders via Manage Resources.
