    @wallymick You have a very strong setup, good combo Emsisoft + MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit and Zemana AntiLogger.

    Nice and solid setup you got there! Thanks for sharing :)
    Plus a serious backup plan to safeguard your data and system.
    Good idea the dual boot with Mint.

    Thanks guys.
    I revert back to WinPatrol WAR because Ranstop even it was added as trust in Emsisoft, continue to block/cumber entire access on pc , not to tell high disk usage on all disks ( 5 HHD on pc from witch 2 is RAID 1), i will put inside a VM or on my laptop to see what happens.
