Just tried ESET Smart Security Premium with default settings and SSL/TLS disabled as this is handled by my Adguard for Desktop. I don't like it for 2 reasons

1) I find surfing a bit slow
2) It blocked many sites I want to go to like download movies etc

My just-expired KIS don't exhibit these issues

Too bad I missed the free giveaway Bitdefender Smart Security while testing ESET

Guess I'll need to go back to KIS. Hopefully, the servers of Kaspersky will not face ban in other countries so as not to affect its performance



:D
