    I think there is overkill...

    With CFW + Cs' settings, no need others... also AppGuard + HitMan.Pro? :unsure::emoji_thinking:

    Stay only with:

    * CFW + Cs: with this You don't need Sandboxie...

    * AppGuard well tweaked.

    I'm sure a different layout suggestion will come from others users...
