Yeh, VodooShield must be best security soft discovery of 2016, atleast for me, NVT EXE is too much nagging and outdated, Appguard complicated and pricey, but VoodooShield seems like best meedleway and since its free, you cant bypass it
I agree, NVT is annoying sometimes, AG being so aggressive and needs more user interaction, but both are great security software. I'm starting to like VoodooShield because it's very easy to use unlike the other two. But AG at the "Locked Down' level is still the best protection I think. No applications are allowed to run from the user space unless they are added to the guarded apps.

Yes!

Actually, I reluctantly removed Avast. I then realized that Avast is much better than Webroot. Although I like Webroot (because of it's lightness) it's really hard to pass up on Avast's protection especially it's 'Hardened Mode' and 'CyberCapture'. Thanks! :)

Ahhh, if i had a license for avast i would have gone another route maybe :D All MT forum talks about Hardened Mode, i might look upon it how it works, i havent used avast for years


believe me , you will like it! since the nitro update ( sorry if I keep raving on about this ) it's so unbeleavably light on the system even with all settings maxed out! it has really become a great product , and just like the king stated : the free version is addequate enough!

@King Mellow Great changes, I also prefer FDM to EagleGet. It is really faster and stable ;)
I agree, it's really faster than EG! :) EagleGet is very buggy lately. :(

Tha same here! :D I removed WSA because of license expired and I installed Avast Free HM flagged on aggressive.
Boost your protection! ;)
The only downside is the UI and also the unnecessary components/tools. But overall it's great! :)
