    @LDogg How are you liking the Pro features of W10 so far? I'm thinking about upgrading to Pro. I have noticed some folks saying they have Enterprise too. Wondered which is better? Looks like Enterprise has a lot more to offer. In either case going from Home to Pro/Enterprise will be a big step up. Let me know your thoughts!

    Great configuration as always @LDogg !

    Emsisoft based on personal tests (from personal opinion) show that this is the second best extension to use, less resource hogging then MBAM and I would certainly use this.
