Hello @davisd
You made exclusions on "Local Exclusions" , but is it necessary to made the same exclusions on "Exceptions" ?
Nop. Read these both Sophos Home articles how to deal with PUA/FP's and make proper scan/folder exceptions.

Resolving PUA detected through the installed Sophos Home software

Setting scan exceptions

I also recommend, if you are new user to Sophos Home/Sophos Home Premium, go through all these articles to have better understanding of Interface/web dashboard and how to configure each settings. They are small and easy understandable.

Thanks for the links! I should have read some of them sooner, rather than taking the pffft, I don't need to read any manuals.... 2 hours later... I should have read the manuals approach. I didn't know you could set it up so that you can access the settings page without typing in your password every time!

HMPA is anti-exploit, while OSA is post-exploitation, so yes they run and complement well together.
So is it good to run ESET IS with exploit protection, HMPA as an anti-exploit and OSA with post-exploitation together?

You already know my opinion about layering a suite with other tool ;)
if a suite can't fill the gaps, find one who does.

Right now I am running HMPA and Windows Defender. But I wonder which AV's HMPA recommends, NOT IS SUITES.
Sophos includes HMPA, the choice is quick, if i cant live without HMPA and i need a suite, i would go Sophos because of the better compatibility/integration.

the golden rule in a layered security setup is compatibility/softs interaction, not recklessly and blindly stockpiling features.

Before adding several unneeded applications and introducing more bugs to your system in the process, why not take a stroll through Eset's advanced settings and realize, you have enough features and options to really increase your security. Eset is a full suite, and has enough tweakable options to secure you.
