Yes, Avast worked like a charm for me also, I have Kaspersky IS 2015 license but i find Trend micro to be easier to use and better at defending the PC. Backup i must try to use, didnt have a need but as i started to use my PC for more seriouse stuff i will have to do it.
Thanks for your sugestions, i appreciate it allot !
Welcome to The Temple of Paranoid, ..enjoy your flight. My wife could go bowling with your Girlfriend...(even though she's not all that fond of bowling!).
Trend Micro is a solid choice according to some knowledgeable members of whom you are now one!
I truly like your security & privacy choices, and agree with others suggestions while approving of your choice of extensions.
You may consider one (or two) of the very first free software programs I'd learned of right after joining here approx. 1 year ago which provide additional layers of blissful paranoid relief while browsing.
Thanks all for your sudgestions, really awesome to hear approvals from You all that have more experionce in security than me, i'm still new at this "stuff" and am learning allot. Trend Micro is showing really stable and fast, with grate malware prevention, and i like that is has strong proactive protection, and its not relieing on its signatures only. ( like ESET is strong in signatures, but if you are not using HIPS on interactive, who knows what can happen :/ ).
@ Cats-4_Owners-2 - hehe yea i'm sure they could talk about this stuff that we all do for all night...thats crazzy how they are not aware of dangers "outthere " on internet.
I just intaled Macrium reflect and will make a image of my freshly installed windows .
Sandboxie software i think i dont need atm, because im dont have a habit instaling and using untrusted software , im really picky with installing unknown programs.
