This is the first configuration entry I've made in a very..very long time!:oops: The sands from the hourglass of my Emsisoft I.S. subscription finally :eek:ran out so striving to be a frugal MalwareTips member, I chose to reactivate Windows Defender & Windows Firewall (Defender seemed much quicker, although "Full Scan" still lived up to being quite "full" in a time wise sense) and I'd switched VoodooShield from "Smart" to "Always On" whilst also spending more time in Shadow Defender's "Shadow Mode"!:cool:
Paranoia also has it's benefits!;):p

Uninstalled: Emsisoft I.S. (it proved a very good run!) :)
..and decided to try a security suite with an equally high reputation.
Installed: Kaspersky Internet Security
Day (2) and I like it!:) I've not noticed any of the heaviness mentioned by some over the years.:rolleyes:

Thank you @Exterminator for setting great examples I'd begun to glean from years ago which are still consistently accurate today!:D
