It was little confusing trying to create an ideal rule for home use.

Actually the rules are very useful on workstations.  This is my rule-set.  Do this rule for each account on the box.



The same rule-set also locks down %Program Data%, as nothing should ever execute from that folder.  You will need to disable the rule-set for many installs.  Unfortunately, too many software sellers want to use your LUA %.\Low\Temp% for installs, and this also happens if you (cleverly) use Admin.  But at least you can stop cold any malware that wants to install itself on your box--it just won't happen and you won't even feel the bump in the road!  Software should install from wherever you put it, usually the desktop or your software archive.  I'm thinking of shutting down the Desktop as well, but I have too many legit maintenance apps there, I'll have to let VS interrogate those.

Seem to be folder specific rule targeting process execution, especially during installition.  Going to give a try for a week.  Hope it don't nag to much.

Ah, so it's only Edge smartscreen that blocks Voodooshield downloads. Now I understand what you all have been talking about.
If you download in Chrome, Windows Defender and Windows Smartscreen leave it be.

Smart mode/aggressive, toggled On -- am I supposed to see a prompt for dismhost, spawned by cleanmgr? Because I just saw one.

Windows 10 x64 1809

It happened again, this time dismhost was not recognized, and VS recommended to block. The algorithm seems tilted a bit to the paranoid side.

I use AlwaysOn/Aggressive and have never seen this. It's whitelisted by default (in red). I'm still on 1803. I wonder if it's 1809? :-\

Hey Dan - As I've been spruiking the use of a Ruleset, I suddenly wondered about Blocking Folders.  Does this block all sub-folders, or do I need some regex to do magic?

My personal feeling is it should default to recursion, but others (yourself?) may disagree.

Maybe because it's only offered here at present?

I got 4.64 from the website, as well as 4.65, so we can rule that out.

FWIW the 4.65 installer file identifies itself as 4.50.0.0 with a mouse hover.
