    make sure you run Syshardener and apply the default or tweaked settings :) then avast is even better

    also you may consider enabling this option. It works similarly to smartscreen and will warn you about downloaded files with low reputation => good against zero-day malwares. There will be expected FPs, too. It used to warn some Windows Updates files because they are too new
    if you see the warning, wait for a day and download the file again. The warning may disappear

    1. Re-Test AVAST IS. kicked after five minutes because ads for their VPN.:mad:
    2. Re-Test Norton. kicked after three minutes. Activation Bug still exists. :mad:
    3. Re-Test Bullguard IS...looks good ( ok they should change their old GUI)

    My light system for the next 30 days:

    Bullguard IS + OSArmor
    Firefox Nightly + Ublockorign + Comodo Online Security


    Removed Netcraft ( Bullguard has a good antiphishing from bitdefender cloud)
    Removed Kaspersky AV ( paid)

    I believe Netcraft has the best phishing detecting ability out of most out there, but at the end of the day it's what you see best for your own config and you know your own habits/system.

    For FF Nightly you could also try Scriptsafe is you prefer, also speed up your connection too by blocking harmful script and unwanted content. The rest of your config looks light & solid.

    would change comodo online security for the malwarbytes extension or k9. add htts everywhere , privacy possum and idnsafe. you can also add simple dnscrypt and use this in combination with adguad dns / neustarr dns or quad 9 dns. thanks for sharing your config with us :).

    post edit : bullguard has very good webpage scanner , so there is virtually no need for another one. also it is known as the " fixed " bitdefender , I used it for some time and barely noticed it's pressence on my machine. it is really good develloped / maintained software!!!

    i know the malwarebytes extension...but I have the impression that it slows down a little bit my firefox.
    but i would give him a new change because i have no doubt about their good protection
    I really hope that bullguard fix their sleeping behavior blocker as soon as possible....the firewall is ready

    ADD: Panda Dome Advanced ( tweaks from @Slyguy) + OSArmor
    ADD: Panda Safe Web + Netcraft

    -> amazing light system :emoji_ok_hand:a performance impact doesnt exist

    Removed Bullguard IS ( I will come back if they have improved the behavior blocker)
