    Not quite sure if anyone's noticed this: "Virus and Malware Removal Tools zemana anti logger". I believe The Antilogger which is now a discontinued product doesn't serve as a product that has an active capability of removing any type of classification threat. I would therefore suggest maybe removing this out as it's already added to Realtime Protection.

    May I also suggest the following too
    • Adding Zemana AntiMalware as an on demand second opinion scanner
    • Optional, adding adwcleaner & Norton Power Eraser
    • Changing default search engine to DuckDuckGo or Startpage
    • Believe you have FF you could try Cookie AutoDelete & Privacy Possum

    I don't believe in disinfecting a system but in preventing the infection . once infected its better to reinstall rather than going for cleaner software. I am using ad guard just to prevent adware infection and if something bypasses CFW, ZAL and windows defender then i will reinstall/reimage my system rather than using NPE.

    Changes made a month ago, F secure av comes in in lieu of windows defender (much less resource hungry than defender) Zemana anti logger is removed for now ( if it gets updated will consider). Added NVT ERP 4 beta (just to test for the time being). No major conflicts are observed till now, in fact system is very smooth and very responsive. NVT is in lock down mode.

    What F-Secure's web filter like if it has one? If someone else uses it have you thought about using Netcraft?

    Not needed since :
    F secure has one of aggressive top tier web blocking + Acquisition of Anti phishing company MWR Cyber security further powered it
    Net Craft is good for Anti phishing like beside Panda, Avira
    F secure is solely dependent at Web level than their own signatures..this should explain how effective their web protection is !!

    Any problems running CFW and F-secure. Anyway to get rid of the warming on f-secure about not protected windows firewall not on?
    No way to turn off that nagging warning, No issues of conflict between f secure and comodo. (i am not using comodo's hips by the way)

    i am already using adguard at system level and malwarebytes extension, netcraft is not needed. I only have f secure anti virus module, most basic one and it does not have web filtering module and i do not need web filtering module as i have adguard for that special purpose.

    For me work great but i use system installer version no stand alone addon for browser
    Adguard with K9 Web protection is rly good solid combo but mostly k9 web dont have much to do while adguard work also well.
