OPFW Pro/Avast AV (free) vs OP Security Suite
Good afternoon everyone,
I've been using OPFW Pro with Avast AV (free) for some time. The only problem I've had has occurred within the past month where the File/Folder Locking option in OPFW no longer works properly. (One of the reasons I use Avast free is because I live on a very limited VA disability income. If I were to start using OPSS (paid version)...I would essentially be throwing the money away I spent to purchase OPFW Pro).
I have noted some forum members/Moderators who indicate they use the OPSS. The questions I have about OPSS are as follows:
1. Is OPSS light on system resource use? (I know some programs like McAfee, Norton, etc are well-known system resource hogs and really slow down the computer).
2. Is the firewall in OPSS the same as OPFW Pro & have the same user interface?
3. Can IP Blocklists from Blocklist Pro be imported into the firewall in OPSS?
4. Would using the OPSS FREE version be as good as the paid version? If not, what are the reasons why?
Thank you for your time and any information/recommendations!
