Hey, you stole my tagline. And the above setting falls into the paranoid category.
You say you were using Emsisoft+OSA+SH+CFW? No wonder why your internet crashed mate.My current situation has Emsisoft, OSA and SH. I'm missing the HIPs and Firewall components if I'm right, what is a reliable alternative (paid or free) to the most decanted CruelComodo?
It ddnt crash, and the disk read issue is still present after removing CCYou say you were using Emsisoft+OSA+SH+CFW? No wonder why your internet crashed mate
Ill look into it, but this way I have no sandbox, correct?Use Windows Firewall (built-in) and add MalwareBytes Firewall Control or similar
So disabling the HIPs should be ok with Emsisoft?You're pointing at the wrong cause of your troubles. IIRC you were all about HIPS
I don't have that I have EmsisoftIf you learn how to set up ESET Internet Security
To that point I have the following plug-ins:main weakness of Emsisoft is phishing and url blocking. [...]. So I would make sure my web browser has good phishing and malware blocking protection.
So VS runs everything in program folder? What is a script or malware makes a copy in this folder. and then runs it from there?Your AV might catch it, but VS will not, because it is in Program Files.
So in practice VS put responsibility on me, where AV takes it personally.So there are times when you will rely on your judgment and allow a file to run even if VS recommended to block it
Correct, VS allows everything in program folder to run. But it is not so easy for malware to copy something into this folder, because it needs elevated privileges. It is a protected area in Windows. That's why it's okay that VS allows these programs to run. Windows itself protects this and other areas.So VS runs everything in program folder? What is a script or malware makes a copy in this folder. and then runs it from there?
