Windscribe is a VPN as I remember that AdGuard optimised to run well, however I'm using Wireguard with IVPN & Adguard in that combination cut speed by over 50%, not found a way round it yet?
I have no experience with IVPN, but I think that when you use IVPN, Adguard is redundant. IVPN offers also ad- and tracker blocking. A pitty that you have several cheap Adguard lifetime licenses.

Edit:
I use Windscribe as add-on in Waterfox, not the desktop app. In Windscribe I have disabled 'Ad Crusher' and 'Tracker Eradicator'. Perhaps you can disable ad- and trackerblocking in the IVPN desktop app.

I had a chat with IVPN support a few months ago regarding the use of another adblock as IVPN has an anti-tracker, support were of the opinion that a program such as Adguard may still be useful - Adguard has many options as we know - Windcribe has similar function to IVPN anti-tracker ROBERT that I've found to be a little OTT - Adguard licences I have are being used by friends? and family so no regrets there when I bought the extra 9 unit licences as I 'look after' (working on weening people off this) a fair amount of PC's - I've replaced AdGuard on this Desktop with BlackFog which many dislike but I'm very pleased with ;);)

IVPN anti-tracker is either on or off, though there is another setting that blocks all Google & others which can make sites look not too good that use Google fonts for example

Realised how off topic I am - Sorry.

My Adguard licence has been expire but I still use it on mobile with some extra DNS filters. I would have bought licence yet but Adguard won't accept the card I have 😣.

I think you can save those bucks and just use Nextdns, for windows integration( for encrypted dns) use Yoga dns as it won't interfere with vpn connections. If you need cosmetic filters just use UBO ( just the cosmetic filters turned on).

Then you don't actually need adguard for windows. Enable the oisd block list in next.it covers most aspects and is updated frequently.( Anudeep's Blacklist is also good)

No need to use steven-black and nextdns-recommended together. The latter includes about 87% of the steven-black rules.
Edit:
The latter includes all the steven-black rules. For 87% they are part of nextdns-recommended. 13% is focused on Asian sites.

You don't need anything more than nextdns, yeah right.
It's much better than what you had suggested. 100$ per year for ads blocking wow what a find. I ll see ads any day rather than paying 100$ per year. for your information, I have been an adguard user from 2016 onwards and at that time neither nextdns nor your 100$ company existed and i do not regret my adguard lifetime purchase/using ( 10$ at that time if i remember correctly for 3 systems).
