- Removed microsoft defender + defenderui + comodo firewall ( cs)
- removed adguard + edge

Clean install

+ installed avast free antivirus ( hardened mode enabled )
+ Firefox + ublock origin

Reason:
Microsoft defender feels bit too heavy, browsing speed is slow due adguard. Avast wont slow my browser down same with the ublock origin
Dont feel like hardening anything else than just avast

Made 27 days with huorong

Replaced huorong is with AVG FREE ANTIVIRUS
- enabled hardened mode + avg free firewall ( afaik avg disables windows firewall but avast does not)

Replaced brave browser with Google chrome
- only extension im using is bitwarden

+ adguard with quad9 dns via dnscrypt

Reason: AVG android web filter works with only google chrome + opera so i decided to change all family devices use google chrome + avg
