is the bitdefender traffic light extension work though? is it update regularly or is it an abandon tool from bitdefender?just the basic antivirus... i wanna test a simple setting this year. I think for browsing protection is bitdefender traffic light extension enough.
Yes, f-secure is really fast..no delay at starting programs or games. ( and i have tested so many other av's in term of impact...like panda, webroot or mcafee)For a gaming setup F-Secure Antivirus is perfect. I don't think you will notice any slowdown because of it. Good to see you are using SUA, it is another layer.
Set UAC to maximum! (it is strongly recommended)
Yeah i'm using Autoruns by Windows Sysinternals too. I have made first experiences with it to search the process avg overseer after deinstall of avg.@amico81
Do you already using Autoruns by Windows Sysinternals, this tool is highly recommended even to check for former software drivers leftover...
Most geeks have their tool of choice to deal with processes that start up automatically, whether that is MS Config, CCleaner, or even Task Manager in Windows 8 — but none of them are as powerful as Autoruns, which is also our Geek School lesson for today.www.howtogeek.com
I would say that NextDNS is a DNS provider that is good for attack surface reduction while browsing. Throwing a bunch of malicious links with the same format at it doesn't say much as many of it's security advantages are not covered by those links (TLD-blocking, IDN Homograph-blocking, NRD-blocking etc.). I'd say that you should always use a good additional blocklist in NextDNS. For my browsing habits NextDNS + OISD blocklist is absolutely enough and doesn't require me to install another extension that has access to all my browsing data. After all I hope that the malicious web-filtering in NextDNS will be improved further. Especially the recently released "AI-Driven Threat Detection" could be interesting in the future when more and more data will be fed to the AI-engine.TrafficLight and Next DNS didn't do so great in the latest test done here (post 1474 and further):
