Walk the dogs twice a day [WinPrivacy & WinAntiRansom]
Best to have these two "dog pics" as TaskbarPins and in the Taskbar notifications.
Because these two are not really "set it and forget it" utilities, at least once in the morning and once in the early evening, I click on these two. I make sure the user name and license has not been "kicked out."
WinPrivacy's Blocked Programs -- anything in there that you know is good, right click on it and choose Allow Program. It will be moved to the Allowed area.
WinAntiRansom's Programs -- for me, the least hassle is to make sure all known good programs, side EXEs are green-clicked [by the program and/or by me] in the PreEmptive Strike column. **Think of lawyers for both sides pre-emptively striking a potential juror from having to be further grilled and vetted. That is the pre-emptive strike within WinAntiRansom. **
In short, walk the dogs at least twice a day.
