Update 20.3.2023

- Removed Trend Micro ( because the web filter isnt same as on mobile security, it misses phishing sites all the time )
- Removed Google chrome ( its just bad , doesnt just work for me )

+ Added F-secure ( 3 year license)
+ Firefox :
- bitwarden
- F secure extension
+ Added Dns0 Zero as Dns

Im trying to stay with F-secure as long as i can, if i run into problems with banking protection im simply going to report those sites to customer support

Did completely clean install first time ( got rid of acer bloat)

Current setup:
- Microsoft defender
- Microsoft Edge
- Adguard
- Dns0 Zero as DNS

Now i dont bother with 3rd party antivirus or any hardening tools, just let it be simple
