hello harlan, do you use Veracrypt in the OS partition or in some folders? I'm interested if there are problems with kaspersky, I'm testing a similar config in my main laptop but not with tweaks with application folder, rather TAM on and Parental control - blocking download of applications.

Also, with the extensions that you have I can´t blockt the ads of facebook (specialy the video ads on the videos :confused:) it's just annoying.

Great config (y)(y)
I'm adding also syshardener and thinking about OSarmor from nvt in case of some bug of kaspersky

@Huchim: I use VeraCrypt with a specific volume/file where I have some important data, and I mount it when needed... using for years alongside Kaspersky and no issues until now.

Which version of Kaspersky product are You using? did You enable Anti-Banner Module?

I'm not getting ads, can You provide any example?

OSArmor is not necessary if Kaspersky well tweaked...

I'm getting ads from wired's videos on facebook, yes, I have anti-banner and privacy protection enabled on KTS 18.0.0.405(h)

Sorry, I don't have the knowledge and the time to handle the alerts if I set "interactive mode" and have it well tweaked. I tried some time ago... I decided to go with TAM and really don't know if it's comparable with the "well tweaked"

As You are in K2018, You need to add some extra AdBLocker add-on to Your browsers: uBlock Origin, my config is with the new K2019 which comes with an improved Anti-Banner (adblocker), so I don't need uBlock Origin:

If You are not well experienced with security tweaks, better You stay with TAM on, will be good for You :)

Hum... I guess it has been already commented in many different threads/posts in this forum, anyway recently a user of this forum asked me for the same, and I recorded a video for him with some of the tweaks I have in some systems with KTS2018:

Some tweaks are very strong/paranoid and may break sometimes installations of legit unsigned/and/or/but unknown applications in KSN, so in these cases You may low temporally the protection during installations as showed here:


And this is an extra config I have for my user space (previously modifying Windows user default folders to drive D:\), but You may costumize if for Yours as You want:


All those tweaks are applicable for K2017, K2018 & K2019 versions...
