    I guess the first question I should ask is do the experts here at this forum think this thing is worthwhile. It looks like this might be the way of hardening my operating system that I have been thinking I'd like to have. It also looks like it could hinder the operation of a computer.

    I've already installed it but I don't understand it. I was wondering if anyone here really knows how this should be set up. The literature I've found online hasn't really helped. It seems to basically say " try it and see".

    I've set up my browsers, the plugin container, email program and Adobe Reader in it. I had to disable "EAF" in the plugin container or I couldn't stream NetFlix video.

    That's all I've done so far. I don't know where to go from there.

    I guess a little more info is in order here. Here's how I have it set up so far.

    EMET.
    App Configuration.

    It came with the System Status set like that. I had to add the apps myself. Maybe that's all I need to do. It shows that EMET is running on the apps I configured.
