    • Reinstalled W10 Pro 1909, same setup. Disabled SSL scanning, script injection, anti-banner, perform actions automatically and IM AV in KIS 2020.
    • Added Emsisoft Browser Security addon to improve phishing protection since KIS 2020 can't block HTTPS served websites/content when SSL scanning is disabled but realtime AV/AMSI/KSN should catch real malware as soon as the file touches the disk.

    PD: System feels as light as it was with F-Secure but now with less or no FPs :ROFLMAO:


    Level 2
    I'd recommend getting rid of the extension and have a look at he built-in filterlist. Have a look at the screenshot I have shown for you. Does the same thing as the extension. Plus more extensions, can mean a bigger attack surface target as well.

    I found that the extension was needed to get past the adblocker warning on some sites, being a good example.

    Are there UBO settings that I can use that'll let me ditch ND?


    Level 2
    Try removing ND completely, next select > "Purge all caches" and then re-check Adblock Warning Removal list.
    That worked, thank you very much, sir. Always nice to get rid of an unneeded extension.

    I'll report back if I see the anti-adblock message again.

    Me to, what are your tracking protection settings in Edge? Mine are on balanced.
    Strict, but I think we've solved it. Thanks for the help to you too, Gandalf.

    When put that way i suppose that is needed then.
