1. You like KIS & would like to continue using it?
KIS is practically my most preferred product. I find BTS less configurable so I won't have it. Emsisoft is my second best, only that its not available in our offline markets and the online one is too costly :D
So yeah, waiting for EAM giveaway and will switch to KIS otherwise

2. Why replaced EaseUS Backup?
All of this is my temporary setup. Will see how good is AOMEI. Once my crashing issue gets fixed, I'll settle with ToDo or Macrium or this one depending on my experience. Your insights were quite helpful though ;)

Regards KIS, check PM.

I like imaging/backup software with Pre-OS console, it makes job easy/fast & USB recovery is kinda your backup.
Macrium, Todo have Pre-OS console.

Great config, thanks for sharing it.
I've simplified it right now. I will be vastly modifying and updating my config very soon after my exams get over, soon.

The swords are limited edition and aren't easily available to all on any download site, hence I didn't mention'em. You need Google Image Search for that.
BTW Yash, you're killing my shield's credibility by using that oxymoron (cutiepie deadly) o_O:D

Made some changes after a long time for evaluating stuffs.

Additions
  1. SOPHOS Home Premium (Beta)
  2. Re-added DeepArmor
  3. ZoneAlarm Antivirus + FW (only Firewall in real-time) (ZA AV = on-demand, for Kaspersky engine)
  4. TemaSoft Ranstop (SYS 2)
  5. Shadow Defender (lifetime)
  6. Some additions to On-demand scanners' arsenal
  7. PortUp Windows Updater (a blessing for Win10)
Removals
  1. CIS (had added this for testing the latest version, had replaced KIS)
  2. MBAE (SYS 2)
  3. ZAL real-time (since identity protection and encryption provided by Sophos)
  4. CCAV (had it for Sandbox + Valkyrie)
  5. Avast IS (SYS 2)
Since I'd multi-device KIS license, removed Avast from the Home machine (SYS 2) and added KIS there.
I think DA will complement Sophos' lackings for now.
Liking the new Sophos, mainly because of its HMPA integration (has some shortcomings though). Have installed it in the main system and will see how well it does in testing, over the time :)

Additions
  1. Windows Defender (Creators Update)
  2. Opera 45.0.2552.635 (added No-script Suite Lite to previous addons list)
  3. VoodooShield free (Smart Mode ON)
  4. Heimdal Pro (Traffic scanning + Malware scanning + Patching enabled)
  5. Private Firewall (FW + Process monitor + System Anomaly detection enabled)
A glimpse:

Removals
  1. SOPHOS Home Premium Beta
  2. Zonealarm FW (testing Private Firewall against this)
  3. DeepArmor AM on hold (against VDS)
  4. Cent browser

SOPHOS: issues leading to the swap out

  • repeated auto-blocking
  • duplicate alerts
  • slow detection/removal
  • quarantine thingy
  • GUI issues
  • feeble worm/scripts protection
Private Firewall captures any unknown or untrained process activity and display contextual info. It should reduce the need for VDS except for the AI and multi-engine threat-score. Using VDS sparingly.
Private FW is no longer developed (since 2013) but it provides multiple layers of protection: IDS/IPS and monitoring power in a light way.
I will see how the new combination

  • Prevention: WD + PrivateFW + Heimdal + VDS
  • Detection: WD + PrivateFW + Heimdal
does, so far, the system performance is fairly good, only delays occur when launching new processes/executables. KIS rests on another system and will install it back if the current setup feels like an overkill.

Opera is my default browser and i´m using VD, but in autopilot mode.
Very light and strong config my friend, by the way, i´m testing WF with Windows Firewall Control, and it´s a very good option if you want to try it. :)
