    If you just use Windows alone and no 3rd-party security software what conflicts are you expecting? If conflict is with non-security software then using Windows + 3rd-party security software will also have conflict too, right?

    GPO, registry hardening are the way to go until it breaks something and then you have to figure out what you did that caused the breakage.

    There are users on the forums that routinely apply 500+ tweaks.

    If you don't have a reversing script or other means to reverse what you did, it can suxx.

    I see. So far I have conflicts on my ZAL (I have a lifetime license) with HMPA. Which I have to turn off either one of the logging protection features. Quite annoying, so I uninstall ZAL and keep in cabinet lol.

    You said it absolutely right. Using the right-layered security software gives the maximum protection coverage.

    This is something expected if the software have overlapping protection features. Either you have to make exclusions or disable the feature in the software

    Obviously you haven't used Windows security at a deep enough level to discover that GPO has tons of bugs and annoying behaviors, AppLocker is half-baked, security stuff that is supposed to work doesn't work, there is no documentation, etc.

    It is just theoretical that Windows native security is optimal. The reality is that is not always the case. In some respects it is, in other respects it isn't.

    Windows security in Enterprise is an obnoxious maze that most any average Admin will find most unacceptable.

    The problems arise when protecting stuff simultaneously in two or more security programs. That applies generally to AVs and internet security suites.

    You are right again. I have never interested to dig deeply into Windows for I prefer the ease of use, more features and better protection in 3rd-party security software.

    Haha, same thought. If Window Native Security is optimal, I guess most security compare by then should be a grave concern. :oops:

    Yup, best deal of my life. Bought 2 (2+2) Adguard lifetime and then 6 EAM (with another 6 Adguard). lol. Deal of a lifetime.

    Any reason why this combo ESET & VS is more solid than the one with EAM? thanks

    @HarborFront You don't need voodoo shield with Eset because you can tweak the Hips and it will work like ANTI-EXE!
    Actions=ask
    Operation affecting: Applications
    Application operation: start new application
    Aapplcaition=all applications
    Here you go:D

    Yes, I know that but I rather let VS do its anti-exe job and ESET's HIPS do the other jobs

    @Umbra is worth listening to. He says it like it is. By the way, I did not follow the whole thread here, I just saw that I was mentioned.

    Just my opinion from a history of using both, and I love EmsiSoft, those that know me here can attest to that.
    Eset has come a very long way, and so has EAM, but there is something about Eset and the way the Eset devs have that software set up and configured that just sits well with me, it translates well to the user, does that make sense ? Any way
    thanks for asking ;)
    EDIT: But please don't misunderstand me, EmsiSoft is on the right track too, Eset just has a few more
    years under it's belt, and has used them wisely.

    That's because ESET has many features for you to set as compared to EAM. So you have the feeling of control and power over it. Subconsciously you like ESET more than EAM....not your opinion

    See, now that's not it for me, that's control, and I am referring to "flow" and the way that is translating to the user experience.
    Eset, when I used it just felt good to me, one of those products that your glad and not nervous about leaving the decisions to.
    Again I hope I am making sense, Advanced or older users may get me on the point I am attempting to convey.
    Thanks Harbor ;)

    Based on what you shared with us. Can I rely on HIPS of ESET only by tweaking it like yours and using it as an Anti-Exe?
    How's the ability of this tweaked HIPS compare to VS? Thanks
