Removed Bandizip -> Added Explzh

And attached is my settings for H_C, Exploit protection, KSCF, browsers.
Just delete the ".txt" to use settings.
I want to thank all the MalwareTips users who share their knowledge with us, thanks to them I was able to make these settings.
On exploit file, rename ". txt" to ".zip"

May can help you as well, I'm using Bandizip Free Portable (available on homepage), there is no option for auto-updates... Download Portable

@silversurfer I tested the portable version but does not have the option to register in the right click menu with "Extract here" or any other command.
I suspect there are third-party variants of adding entries to the menu but last time I tried that, it messed up the whole menu...so...no.... I'll stick with Explzh for now

Yes, you are right. No context-menu available for Bandizip Portable, beside that I'm using WinRar as installed software for same purpose.
