Preferred Solution: JM Security Configuration (2017)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: JM Security Configuration (2017)

Looks pretty good but both Emisoft and Zemana have anti-malware capabilities that might conflict. You should choose one or the other in my opinion. Looks good thanks for sharing!

Very minimal security configuration that takes up 1% of CPU while idle and less than 50MB of RAM. Layered defense using software and built-in Windows security hardening.

Network Protection Layers
----
Windows Firewall set to block all incoming connections regardless of whitelisting.
Webroot Firewall set to block all unknown connections.
DNSCrypt with OpenDNS

Web Protection Layers
----
Webroot Web Filtering (Blocks 96% of all phishing attempts, very powerful, but lackluster malware detection.)
uBlock Origin Filters (Blocks all malvertising attempts, some malware links.)
Google Safe Browsing (Blocks some malware and phishing attacks, last resort, not very effective.)
OpenDNS phishing and malware protection.

File Protection Layers
----
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Good malware detection, rollback features, usually not intrusive.)
SBGuard AntiRansomware (Blocks all non-administrative executables everywhere except on Desktop and external drivers, very powerful and prevents malware from running that Webroot doesn't catch.)
chml.exe (Permissions tool used to set integrity levels. Configured properly, it stops most applications from modifying or reading any files in Documents, Music, Videos, or Pictures. Stops spyware and some Ransomware.)

Endpoint Protection Layers
----
Password-protected local account (locks out after every 5 attempts for 5 minutes.)
Bitlocker w/ 256-bit XTS AES encryption.
Prey Anti-Theft
A fake local account named "Admin" that when logged ... Read more

Simple but effective security configuration, Glasswire provides a lot of information about the processes that use net connections, perhaps it slows down a bit the Windows boot.

I use a VPN 24\7. It is IVPN which uses an always-on firewall and multi-hop options. I don't use a VPN for privacy or anonymity, but instead to ensure encrypted network traffic. If need be, I Tor through the VPN.

I have multiple personal and test machines. The security configuration shown above is representative of what is typically installed on both my personal and test machines. Depending upon what and how I am testing, sometimes I will substitute SpyShelter Firewall for Windows Firewall Control. If I have need of an antivirus\internet security suite for a particular project or set of circumstances, generally I will install either Webroot or Emsisoft. For my most-used personal system, the above security configuration is its current one.

I test malware on a host PC using Rollback RX Pro in a malware lab. This is to eliminate any virtual machine introduced anomalies into the testing and results. This test methodology is not recommended for the home-tester. Anyone else should not employ this test methodology; use a virtual machine instead.

Answer:Loup113 PC Security Configuration (2017)

Avast Free has a gaming mode. That might interest you. Think it actually ups the priority of detected games for better performance, although I haven't tried it yet myself. You can also choose the custom installation with Avast and eliminate the cleaner module and other things you won't use. Handy option. Maybe you could combine that with Windows Firewall Control for a light configuration.

Hello,
On my Windows 10 pro PC, I'm running (BDTS 2017 + Voodoo Shield Pro + Malwarebytes 3), and this combo is very smooth for me, but when I saw the results of MT tests here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Bitdefender Report - March 2017 and here : AV Test - MalwareTips - Kaspersky Report - March 2017, I think that these tests demonstrated that Kaspersky did a better job then Bitdefender
So my question is to know if it is a good idea to replace BD by KIS on my config ?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

My new configuration focused on being lightweight while not shitting on protection. Webroot with whitelisting on stops most malware in its tracks, UAC as well, Anti-Exploit stops payloads from even hitting, and DNSCrypt secures DNS. Acrylic DNS and uBlock gets rid of all advertisements that lead to malware, and a strict popup blocker to prevent popunders. Syncthing syncs with a central server at home running a hardened Arch Linux box. Bitlocker acts as endpoint protection. No system imaging is used.

Note; I used pruned EasyList and EasyPrivacy lists here (without the whitelisting). They are all separated into modules giving me the ability to pick and choose. GitHub - easylist/easylist: EasyList filter subscription

Answer:Best Internet Security Software 2017

You could not go wrong with any of them in my opinion.
Emsisoft and GData have both Bitdefender and their own engine and a very strong behaviour blocker. Personally one of those two would be my choice. In terms of GUI, I think Emsisoft would be a bit easier to configure than GData I guess.
I haven't tried Trustport and Dr Web myself, but tests on the forum/malware hub also give them good scores.
Just try a few of them and see which one suits you the best

I have read several recent articles that McAfee has revamped its IS with a new GUI employing new detection technology.

However, whenever I attempt to install it on one of my PC's, being that I have a 4 year license, the old version with the green border still appears.

For months, McAfee keeps saying they are gradually rolling it out. So far months have past, and nothing has changed.

Is it because the new version is too buggy?

I do not understand the delay. Does anyone know what is going on?
Is there a workaround to force the installation of the new gui?

Symantec's Norton Antivirus has been a recognized household name for over a decade.

Norton Premium Security is the combination of the powerful Norton Antivirus, Norton 360, and Norton Internet Security, now combined into a super-pack.

As the landscape of online threats constantly changes, Symantec adapted its products which ended up as a full security suite providing malware protection, online safety features, mobile device protection (Norton Mobile Security), parental control (Norton Family Premier), automatic backup and other neat features.

OUR PICK

Norton Security Premium
Norton's best protection bundle is a force to be reckoned with.

It protects up to 10 devices and is compatible with PC, Mac, Android, and iOS with a single subscription.

It is the only product that offer parental control and 25 GB of secure PC cloud backup, but besides for that it provides all the premium features of the other higher-tiered Norton products.

Users can enjoy identity protection, ransomware detection, notification about sketchy sites and apps, and an excellent antivirus engine.

Expires Tomorrow
In this Norton Security review I will cover a complete overview and a comparison of the different Norton Security suites with in-house hands-on tests, graphs, and explanations.

Security Setup of my gaming desktop I custom built. Since its only used for Steam and some light web browsing I have no need for extreme security other than a ad blocker for the web. Windows Defender has improved even more as well in the latest Creators Update for Windows 10. I know it is a simple unobtrusive setup with little in terms of fail safes, but that is what my brain is for and I have no worry of being infected.

Despite that Bitdefender is known to consume lots of RAM, nearing 800MB when scanning is too much. I would assume it's a bug or memory leak.

you dont need to pair KIS with MBAM and you dont need MBAE also because kaspersky already has anti-exploit feature and it works
the only thing I think MBAM is better than KIS is anti-PUP. KIS is not really good at this I think but now it is improved not sure if this is still applied anymore

The Google device firmware images have also been released to the Google Developer site. Security patch levels of February 05, 2017 or later address all of these issues.

This bulletin has two security patch level strings to provide Android partners with the flexibility to more quickly fix a subset of vulnerabilities that are similar across all Android devices.

See Common questions and answers for additional information:

2017-02-01: Partial security patch level string. This security patch level string indicates that all issues associated with 2017-02-01 (and all previous security patch level strings) are addressed.

Hi all,

I'm currently looking for a very good Internet Suite solution.

I've been reading through several topics and most of the opinions mention these two as excellent overall performers.

I want a good suite that has both av and firewall, excellent protection overall, minimal system impact, reliable (not unstable) and doesn't get in my way since I'll be installing this on three separate Windows 10 PCs: a workstation, gaming desktop and laptop.

It's between EIS and KIS latest and greatest but any other suggestion that fills the requirements are welcome.

Thanks a lot!
