    This is my security configuration. I always try to keep all Third Party Software and all Microsoft products up to date to maintain a secure computing environment. Secunia PSI 3.0 is great for this. I am also considering installing the latest version of EMET (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit). In my previous experience, EMET has significantly slowed down my computer.

    I am open to any suggestions.

    Thank You!
