    Be sure to enable "Application Control" in Panda Dome which is usually very effective with unknown exe malware, also Data Shield (but may fail protecting data against ransomware), on the other hand I would pair it with NVT OSA, or apply NVT SysHardener (Suggested Tweaks good enough) to mitigate scripts attack vector where Panda Dome is quite weak...

    Remove Panda Dome as Virus and Malware Removal Tools, since it is already Your real-time protection, here I would consider HitMan.Pro Free, Norton Power Eraser and MalwareBytes Free...

    I would also consider to run backups of important data to external devices.

    Thanks for sharing :giggle:

    I actually have lifetime licences for MalwareBytes and Zemana Antilogger, however they both lost my confidence in them over the past few years and I have not yet started to use them again as I am reasonably careful checking unknown websites and scanning downloads.
    Do you think MalwareBytes and Zemana have got their software back in oirder?
    I also stopped using CCleaner, it seemed like all my favourites over the last few years have let themselves down.
    Out of the three which do you now believe have redeemed themselves?
    I miss them all, they were my trusted friends! :(
