@Captain Awesome Got tired of ESET's HIPS Interactive Mode? :D It's pretty annoying even if you set it in "Learning mode" for couple of weeks and then to "Interactive Mode" (as suggested by ESET), it still throws tons of HIPS alerts after. However in "Smart Mode" it's pretty friendly, alerting only about suspicious system events. Kaspersky is a good pick, however I would recommend 2018. version over 2017. since it is more lighter, enjoy it. :)

Is 2018 version final?
