    I take it this vulnerability is only when you are using the IE browser, and have flash installed?

    Yes it does. But I don't use Oracle, Wordpad, IE, Office, Flash. Which is what it protects.

    You can add programs to it manually. I just added Palemoon and Thunderbird.

    EMET is very, very good at locking a system down from outside attacks. I just have no need for it myself. Or for that matter have any idea how it works.

    I did try EMET once but then uninstalled it cause I was having issues. Some day I'll actually sit down and learn to fine tune it.
