Just a copy of my latest post of 2018
I found this: User Account Control settings - entering exclusions/exceptions for my word processor softwareYes, I know, but I mostly use portable SWs located outside c:\Program files and some of them are unsigned (i.e. Dism++), so I'd get a lot of UAC alerts... if only Microsof could add exclusions to UAC...
Yes, I tried to make a shortcut like explained here How to Create a Program Shortcut to Run Without the UAC Prompt in Windows 7
It's the first time I use it, but it's very simple, with a wizard to guide you.Don't know this software, please what's your opinion about it?
Very good additions to your setup. You have all the 3 computing layers covered in Firewall, AV & Backup.Update 26/01/2019
I'm going to test this lightweight configuration:
So far, so good, the PC is very responsive and quiet
- Panda Dome Free (the lightest free AV I have found)
- K9 web protection (very light web filtering SW)
- Hard_Configurator with Windows 10 Recomm. Enhanc. Conf. (great tool to apply Windows built-in default-deny settings)
- Chromium portable instead of Firefox (I switched to Firefox because it was lighter than Chromium, but now it seems it's the other way around...)
The problem with Chromium-based browsers is that they always update later than Chromium itselfYou could try out slimjet, its probably lightest browser since ie but i dont know about privacy
Yeah, that's why I chosed the lightest, even if detection rate and protection against zero-day is not the best.With H_C doubt you even need the antivirus
