Hello again! Again, because I am Nikos751 and I needed to create a new account. Here is my configuration. I want a reliable and secure system so as the greek ancient philosopher Kleovoulos said, "Moderation is best".

@NikosNx: please kindly consider:
  • Please specify the exact version of Eset InterNet Security.
  • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add: Norton Power Eraser or MalWareBytes 4 Windows Free.
  • As for "Disk Imaging Backup", You may add Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliably.
  • As for Browser Extensions, You may add uBlock Origin.
  • As for "Web Privacy", You may add some browser extensions: and a VPN service.
  • Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here.
Thanks for sharing Your config :giggle:

Added Ublock Origin after a long time not using it because of a bigger attack surface with addons & replaced ZAM portable with NPE. I also specified that I have HIPS in EIS in Smart Mode. If I occasionally need a system backup I use AOMEI backupper. Thank you all.

Looks like a good config :) I would also say to add Windscribe VPN (great VPN; free version better than many others) like @LDogg said. 1Password is a great password manager that I used to use all the time until I had to have a password manager for my Chromebook for school, so great choice :)

Great addition.. Ublock is definitely a worth while tool. Last night i was throwing malicious URL's at CIS V11 Webfilter, and had to allow almost everyone of them through Ublock before the webfilter was able to react.

That's great! I didn't know uBlock was so good for malicious URLs :)

Were you using the default lists enabled?
