    Well, you must remove and put programs for my way of seeing.
    1. 4GB . It's not much in these times, therefore I would leave only Eset Smart Security and MBA would leave it for scans, it's a waste of resources to use MBA having installed ESS.
    2- I suggest a backup program.
    I recommend you, Macrium Reflect in its free version.
    Thank you for sharing(y)

    +1 with @bribon77.

    uBlock Origin or Adguard for Firefox. Maybe Privacy Possum if privacy is a concern.

    Nano Adblocker Adguard for Chrome. Same as above re: PP

    uBO & Nano can be employed as a virtual firewall for your browsers, if used in Advance User medium mode. This is not difficult to learn + a bit of trial & error. I would definitely not be using AdBlock or AdBlock Plus. My two cents. :D
