Thank you guys for all the help. I updated my config. Using Comodo Firewall with Kaspersky Free now. So far no hiccups and all runs well. I was a busy for the last couple of days assembling my gaming pc. And just when I bought the GTX 1070Ti Nvidia announces the RTX series (sigh). Do I need to make another post for the security config of my gaming desktop or can I edit this post to reflect the new setup?
