    Hello Everyone!

    This is my security configuration for gaming laptop.

    ESET.png

    ESET Multi-Device Security license, also includes ESET's Windows (AV/IS), Mac, Android and Linux software products. I preferred only 1 device because, I don't need more ESET's products. Actually, my main product is KSC Personal.

    Nice configuration there @FALLEN !! :)

    Only thing I'd recommend looking into (and free) is viBoot! viBoot with Macrium Reflect (which you are using) is really robust and I would highly highly recommend the software! Link: Macrium Software | Macrium viBoot

    Combine Macrium Reflect and viBoot and you got yourself one great backup program that can easily virtualize your system in a matter of minutes to test updates, software, tweaks, changes etc. without changing your system or the actual backup image. I really recommend this software. Maybe I should do a end-user training guide document on viBoot.... haha!

    CCleaner Portable is nice. I have been using different software other than CCleaner now... after they had that breach in security a while back I kinda lost some faith in that company. The portable version has less security worries. With version 1809 you can no longer use older versions of CCleaner (many years old) as there are certain things that can become broken and Windows actually stops the application from running too.

    Happy to see another person who uses GlassWire Elite! Nice!! (y)(y)(y)Coming from a Network Administration background myself I enjoy using this software - and I use it a lot with a combination of other Network Admin tools!

    Great! Your most welcome @FALLEN ! Always happy to give others information to look into and read about. I may end up creating a user tutorial and or end user guide on viBoot as it is so cool and nifty. @harlan4096 & @JM Safe Do we have a good section for end-user training guides on MT?

    Nice to hear the GW team is finally going to do some host blocking based on IP. Always wondered about that... @FALLEN

    Curious about why 2 VPN? For me mullvad is really good already, some features needed with Express?

    Oh.. I'm just testing WireGuard protocol and Mullvad Windows App. I like it but, It is not my main VPN. I bought only 1 month subscription.
    Ah OK, I'm using Mullvad with Wireguard on my phones, works very well.
