    Removed Emsisoft Emergency Kit - Was using it for awhile because I was lazy of switching back to Emsisoft after format awhile back. Any suggestions on password manager? I'm interested in a VPN but I'm more on the side of frugal spending.

    I've full blown switched to Firefox and DuckDuckGo. I'm not sure what system cleaner I should use because I care a bit about my privacy and CCleaner I've heard might be compromised with Avast..?

    Thanks for the suggestions! Would anyone reccomend a music/movie player or is Microsoft's standard apps decent enough? I turned off most of the privacy settings in Windows but not entirely convinced.
