First one that actually uses his "own" VPN, good move! The only thing I would consider is adding 1 or 2 second opinion scanners like HitmanPro or ESET Online Scanner. Also, there is no "Malwarebytes Firewall". You probably mean Windows Firewall Control that got acquired by Malwarebytes. :)

Not at all, indeed, I have life lic for malwarebytes pro, but, I don think I need it anymore, is just I like simplicity of WFC (I had purchased a lic to the ancient creators)

I have added voodooshield pro to my arsenal, based on SecureKongo suggestions, Thanks
