I hate Windows 10 with a passion and i will only upgrade to it, when i will have no other choice. I prefer the Windows 7 beautiful GUI and organization. I couldn't care less about updates, i know people who still run WinXP and i have friends with cracked Windows 7 copies that haven't installed updates since SP1 and contrary to popular belief, they are not full of malware. My own Windows 7 is updated to end of November 2019.You have considered upgrading to Windows 10, since your PC would have no problem with W10, and W7 will no longer have updates.
Thanks for sharing.
My browsing habbits aren't very good, but i don't click at everything i see and i use Opera, which uses Chrome. I haven't seen live malware for ages. I was with MSE and winpatrol for years. I think SecureAplus is at least as good as MSE, if not for anything else, because of the HIPS. The las time i saw live malware was several years ago, when i had to put a 3rd party USB stick on the PC. At the time i had Comodo, WinPatrol Plus and an antivirus (i think it was Avira, but i am not sure). Comodo reacted immediately and WinPatrol caught the autostart entry. Avira kept sleeping merrily.Windows 7 + WinPatrol.? Certainly, you have to have some very good browsing habits. etcetera to be sure with your config in this new year that begins.
INMHO, I would not trust SecureAPlus as the first line of defense, although I love it as a second layer.
P.S.: We have a computer running on W7 and will continue to do so for, I hope, a long time
1) You wish!Update Your system, at least, to W8.1
In System Backup, You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliable.
In Data BackUp, consider also to run manual backups of important data to external devices, and/or in cloud services.
In Virus and Malware Removal Tools, You may add HitManPro Free.
A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
WinPatrol tool is out of development since 2017...
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing.
Thanks! I don't use IE really since ages. But, good to know anyway!Hi,
If you haven't uninstalled I.E.11 yet, you can block it with an OSA rule.
There are also the options that I use in my security configuration in case you don't like the above solutions and prefer to use I.E.11 for some reason.
Microsoft ended support for the company's Windows 7 operating system on January 14, 2020. One day later, support for Internet Explorer 11 ended as well.www.ghacks.net

Would you change the tag?
- Use the 0Patch Pro or Enterprise program.
- Use the ESU paid program on non-Home OS.
- Manually install from the MUC the Microsoft updates available for Windows 7 Embedded.
We all do agree that your computer is safe for now with Windows 7, this is why the tag is orange (At Risk) and not red (Danger). The truth is that you're now using an operating system will not receive security updates. Yes, you have all the right software to prevent an attack, however, you will always need to read articles on what new vulnerability has been discovered and use different methods to fix it. You've joined this community so you're interested in computer security, you won't get infected with malware, however, we cannot give you the SECURE label because the operating system is a week point in your configuration.
Let me clear, if you would have run these programs on Windows 10 OS, you would have received the green label so you're setup is good. If it makes any difference the same setup on Windows XP or Vista would have meant a red "Danger" label.
