    Hi this is my config, i use my NAS for downloading files, NAS is only for local use,
    I've always used avast as my primary av, recently add syshardener and firewall control

    I want to be secure but not to be annoyed with issues installing programs or changing config.
    WD gives me notification but rarely after months of using it, only when i install something

    Do u recommend using something like OSArmor, Vodoshield or Comodo firewall
    or adding H_C or runbysmartcreen alone?

    Or changing my AV to paid one or free like KAspersky would make a difference, i mean i used it for 11 years i didnt have any issue even with my use back in the days
    using mods for games and programs from not trusted source

    or is it secure to use my server on debian for downloading files and programs ?
