Thinking about adding Netcraft or something else now but not too sure.

Netcraft policy is not for me:
Well I am trying out Bitwarden now. It's easy as h3ll to use as a password manager. Trialing it now and maybe add to the rest of this config later on!

I would use either WD + browser that dont support kaspersky extensions like WD+ Brave+ Malwarebytes extension as spawn said before

Or just go with the kaspersky free + firefox + chrome+ edge; browser that supports kaspersky extension


Qihoo is light one though, wisevector too if you dont mind having it registered as av....comodo on me and windows 20XX is that buggy full scans take around 1 hour, when it finished around in 10 minutes before

I did think about using Kaspersky actually tbh. Looks like a solid free product, w/o looking like a complete cheapscate. xD

So as my current AV will run out shortly, anyone have any suggestions on what free AVs or 1 year subscriptions I should use. F-Secure is about to run out for me.

~LDogg
F-Secure beta is free to use I think. Looks like you love F-Secure a lot so just throwing this info out there.
You find Windows Defender heavy so you won't use that I guess.
Kaspersky free is a great free alternative. It's as good as many paid AVs. Surprising package.
Bitdefender Free is another great, light, fully automatic solution. Except ram usage I actually find Bitdefender a bit lighter than Kaspersky in terms of website loading, CPU and disk usage while browsing and when the system is idle.

Hi @LDogg good to hear from you again (y)

I would suggest Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, great protection and still some settings to play with :D
I'm trying it out right now with the latest VoodooShield.

I still see Nano Adblocker mentioned in your config.
Please remove it asap because it's now malware:
