Hi there, ESET is a good, basic AV.

I saw that you have "OS File Reputation: disabled". You should turn on SmartScreen, it only helps you.

As for browser extensions, Avira was suggested to you, I would add that Bitdefender TrafficLight is also very good.

You didn't mention what browser you use; I am assuming it is Google Chrome.

How about this: i can send you a genuine Windows 10 iso image from MS on a dvd (through postal services) - free of costs to you. Afterwards, you can buy a product key online, legally from any authorized reseller. Is this something you would consider?

But i need to look for the legal aspects of this (is distributing ISOs legal - clean, unmodified Microsoft ISOs, without cracks/hacks of course, just the ISO itself as mother MS provides it).

Update: You can check the hash of the burned ISO from the DVD by posting here on MT and asking for a hash from somebody who already downloaded it from MS (to verify its authenticity).

Good configuration out there. :)

An optional setup is to add a companion tool like Voodoshield as your anti-exe/whitelisting program.

Or you can configure the HIPS component of ESET to make it active on monitoring.

But you have the right idea. He can get a friend or relative to download the ISO (now that Creators Update is available, he should get that one) and burn it to a DVD or make a bootable USB.

Thanks for your advice my friends, :) I Have windows Pro key and ISO will upgrade later.

HIPS Configuration is good but i hate that popups, auto mode is good for HIPS for me.

VooDooshield but i don't like much software with default setting. I like less security software installed but there option should be there for customisation just like ESET. I already did advance config in eset.


Thanks again for your advice my friends :)
