Updated config to 2023

- SAC off by choice

Continuing with the AVG internet security , interested to go with wisevector later probably as avg/avast arent supported with wisevector currently

I would wait with WiseVector till the developer show up again here at MT.
Not seen in this new year, the website is very slow and the last new version was WiseVector StopX V3.07 from June 3, 2022.

Any reason to replace AVG isn't AVG and Avast basically the same or is it just because you got a better deal on Avast.

Just wondering was AVG/Avast like resource wise I see you used F-secure is as light as that.

Just got better deal on avast than avg

Im running high end gaming pc so i dont really see any difference between AVAST/AVG/F-secure unless i check process explorer , but on old family laptop i have f secure running and for sure its lighter than avast/avg
