Windows Defender blocked the safe links feature of outlook.com @Evjl's Rain and don't decrypt EV certificates.
Keeping the latest Hard Configurator Beta with Windows 10 Recommended Enhanced profile.
Still not decided between CCleaner Pro and PrivaZer Donors version, but slowly using PrivaZer more and more
Hi Mr.Wave Thank youHi Gandalf thanks for sharing your config. It looks good! I saw FirewallHardening 22.214.171.124 what is this exactly, but more important, where can you download it?
Very nice setup. I may have to ditch Wise when Privacy Eraser brings support for Edge Chromium. I had trouble adjusting to its UI, but I may need to give it more time. I wish they'd bring a "clear all browsing data on exit" feature to new Edge. You'd think they would since its in old version.I did a reset / clean install on my laptop with windows 10 1903 and I'm going for an almost all Microsoft config.
Office 365 Home installed through the Microsoft Store.
Edge Dev as daily browser with uBlock Origin and LastPass.
Bandizip for handeling zip files while keeping the mark of the web.
PrivaZer as cleaner. They will support the new Chromium based Edge as soon as there is a stable version.
Thanks, I sent an email to The PrivaZer Team asking if they would support Edge Dev and they replied:Very nice setup. I may have to ditch Wise when Privacy Eraser brings support for Edge Chromium.

But I think and hope that other cleaners will do the same.As soon as there is an official release of Chrome based Edge.
Not sure we will support dev channel.
Graag gedaan landgenoot! And thank you for the links! I guess with all those toys that @Andy Ful created you can feel very safe on a windows native security setup! One more thing to say to the bad guys then ;Hi Mr.Wave Thank you
FirewallHardening is a new toy from @Andy Ful and will probably be integrated in Hard_Configurator.
Info about this tool is on the last 3 pages of the Hard_Configurator thread, starting here: Discuss - Hard_Configurator - Windows Hardening Configurator
You can also download it from here: AndyFul/Hard_Configurator
Yes, it's great to have a native windows security setup and being able to not have to rely on third party security programs.
Precisely my experience and the reason for following/participating in that thread. We owe much to those with more experience!Also through participating in those threads, asking questions I learned a lot about windows native security mechanisms.
I can't thank @Andy Ful @Windows_Security (andere landgenoot) @shmu26 and all the other members participating enough.
Still learning every day
I enabled Windows Defender Sandbox by running:There are known bugs (for years now) with the LastPass exporter regarding special characters such as the ampersand (&), the greater than sign (>), and the less than sign (<). The LastPass exporter may change (HTML encode) these and possibly other special characters in your passwords to their respective HTML encoded values (ex. &, >, and <. If this LastPass bug affects your exported data you should use a text editor (such as Notepad) to find and replace all of these values before importing into Bitwarden. For example, you may want to do a find and replace for & → & and < → <).
Alternatively, you can use the LastPass Pocket application to export your CSV data. The LastPass Pocket application does not appear to be affected by these bugs.
