    You in particular should definitely try out DNSBench after the convo we had. :) You can put all DNS resolvers in a list inside your adapter settings and it will compare them and show you which one is the fastest. That's how I found mine.

    Privazer is good but takes absolutely FOREVER to get the job done! CCleaner gets the job done and it's fast... Never had any registry problems with that - just let it clean your crap out...

    Thanks for the interesting information. For now since only softwares are included in the list, am going to stick with AdFender which is good as far as freeware desktop adblockers are concerned. Except for the fact that the free version cannot filter ads across https sites :(

    Newest changes

    Changed Everything to UltraSearch in Desktop Search (07-07-17) [Found UltraSearch to be extremely fast with lot of customization options]
    Added FTP Client - FileZilla (07-07-17) [Thanks for the suggestion]
    Changed Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to Zemana in Antispyware (07-07-17) [Zemana seems to be better than Malwarebytes Anti-Malware]
    Added Iris mini in Eye Protection (07-07-17) [Plenty of configuration modes, and is not system intensive unlike f.lux]
    Added Process Explorer in System Monitor (07--07-17) [Was a hard choice between that and Process Hacker]

    Oh forgot to add, I don't use CCleaner's registry cleaner, Privazer's better at that anyway
