I am presently using WSA on win 10. I was convinced into giving it another try because of a rave review I just saw on pcmagThe truth is Webroot just isn't very good protection without supplementing it with other security softs - like AppGuard, NVT ERP, VooDooShield, Windows Firewall Control, etc.
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (2016)
but after reading this thread, I suspect that their rave review might be more revelant to win 7 than to win 10.
Can you recommend a good firewall supplement for an amateur like myself?
I have tried comodo but got frustrated by the bugs and the tendency to forget rules.
Voodooshield is a great idea in theory, but it kept throwing up alerts for me, without giving me enough info to make an intelligent decision, so I got frustrated by that, too.
But what about Windows Firewall Control? Is that a good solution for me?
I also have Spyshelter free running on my system, set for medium security. Maybe that's enough?
edit: I tried out windows firewall control on medium security (recommended setting) but it blocks everything under the sun. chrome, dropbox, you name it. that's too much for me.
