Does MB AE actually work in real time or does it rely on signatures? Last week, EMET blocked an outdated version of Java on my PC and promted me to update ASAP.
I've heard Zemana has problems with w10, is it true?

What is this banner called PC: At risk? I never saw this before. Will moving to paid AV solutions decrease or prevent the risk?
The reason why @Umbra put that on there is because you are playing with Malware on a Host Machine. It would be highly recommended if you play with malware on a VM or not even at all. :)

Its kind of fun testing malwares. From now-onwards, I'll test 'em in a VM since my PC now has important files and stuffs for college needs and I hate to start from fresh and increased downtimes. Probably, I'll image my PC after a Hard Reset. Thanks!
Thread Updated!!!

Changed Malware testing on Host PC to a VM.

@Vasudev, your configuration appears to have evolved thoughtfully in respect to allowing for security, and your most recent addition of a recognized and respected software to create an image for your system (imho) lifts your status effectively.
..although our resident "Dark Lord" of the Sith must officially join you with The Force which flows through all of us!:p:rolleyes:

@Umbra, what do you think?:cool:

Update: I just noticed, you currently have PC Secure status!!:):)
The Force is with you!:p

@Vasudev no particular mechanisms, all is set under my supervision. Remember that this section is not about showing off but about asking for advices and show to other members what should be a proper config.
The rating i give is based on how a basic user may perceive your config, not about how YOU can handle it.

Removed: WOT due to privacy concern and selling data w/o anonymity.
Added: Webutation
Will be phasing out EMET since MS is stooping support and development.
Yeah but in 2018 . Stil plenty of time.

Aren't too many your extension ? Ghostery and ublock , why ? Can't you replace them with ublock origin ?
