    Why ?, because I've got a license of Norton AV 2014 for 6 months, and I like Norton, It was for me a revelation, did not use it for many, many years ago . :oops:

    Now my first line of defense consists of Norton AV 2014, Crystal Security and Windows Firewall.

    I've always liked firewalls like Comodo, ZoneAlarm ... but I think I'm very well protected. What do you think?

    Thanks :)
    I think you have it covered my friend. ;):)

    I want to learn. Any advice is welcome. Thank you. :)

    • Windows 10 PRO 64
    • EAM in Windows 10 and F-Secure IS in Windows 7 (thanks again @tonibalas)
    • Macrium Reflect (thanks again @frogboy)
    • Cent Browser
    • TrafficLight Extension
    • Qbittorrent
    • GlassWire beta because I don´t want Comodo FW or WFC (Two days after getting the giveaway I upgraded to W10 losing the key) :(
    • EaseUs EverySync
    • I can not decide between LibreOffice and WPS. I like both
    • AOMEI Partition Assistant

    It was stated in the initial post for the WFC Giveaway (EXPIRED - BiniSoft Windows Firewall Contol Giveaway)
    Yes and we must contact @exterminator20 again if you want to reactivate it again. Says this post

    Winners please note:
    Once I have the majority of winners who have replied with their unique ID I will send them to the vendor.
    If you have reset or reinstalled your OS before you have received your activation code you need to reinstall WFC and send me the new ID in your winning PM.

    I know it. I did not plan to update it. It was like a "boost" a mistake to have made it so, because I could have kept the Windows 7 right. The good thing is that I have a image of that partition and I can keep using it in Windows 7, but not Windows 10.

    Thanks, I'll try it, but if my translator is not wrong,i am not doing a reset or reinstall, it is a change of OS, but i 'll try it, thanks

    @Sr. Normal, ..a very enjoyable to read configuration wherein changes :eek:abound!;) It takes a degree of courage to switch operating systems, letting go of some things. To move forward one must leave others behind.
    Yes, you'd un-installed all of these like a true Spartan:mad:!! :p:D

    Windows 10 config:

    Added: WSA (thanks @Klipsh ;) ) , TinyWall and Paragon B&R

    Removed: EAM, Glasswire beta, WPS and AOMEI Backupper PRO

    Lately I felt a little heavy EAM, so I'm testing with a lighter config. On my computer this has happened on other occasions with the BitDefender engine
    Glasswire is really nice, but I think the better the "austere" TinyWall.
    After trying both, the truth is that I work more comfortable with Libreoffice so I uninstall WPS
    Aomei Backupper just stopped working. When reinstalling it went well for a couple of days, but again fail, then the same thing happened to me with Macrium Reflect. Now with Paragon seems that everything works (thanks @frogboy ;) )
    I love WinPatrol, but I do not know what to do with it. In Windows 7 is a inamovibler soft, but Windows 10 I have many doubts. I have it in quarantine, waiting to see what I decide to do with it

    Thinking about adding Qihoo 360 TS disabling Avira and BD engines

    All your tips are welcome. Thanks :)
