@ghale:
  • Please specify the exact version number of Norton and BitDefender real-time products.
  • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add these additional tools in W10 (delete in this field the real-time ones): ZAM Free and HitMan Pro Free.
  • A PassWord Manager would be welcome also.
Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing Your config :giggle:
