    bug free and very stable, unlike most you have to fix bugs almost every week.
    ZA bug free? What testing, you run defaults.. therefore you don't see any, and same with your loved G Data, fs protection next in the list.

    Did this little tune on syshardener settings from default to current options, isnt this more secure but does it even matter at all :unsure:

    Anyways i have removed brave, just easier to stick with google chrome > swap dns to google dns aswell..

    So brave browser > google chrome
    Cloudflare DNS > Google DNS
    Malwarebytes extension > Bitdefender trafficlight ( to avoid false positives)

    Do you mean bitdefender trafficlight? ;) Nice to der that you stick to the same av for more than 24 hours! :) for switching between various dns servers quickly you might want to consider sordom's dns jumper! A nifty Little tool ;)

    Yes, my bad i always mix bitwarden & bitdefender

    Defender is enough pretty much. I could swap into lighter av ( literally any) even i dont mess with files and only i do is browsing so antivirus impact doesnt matter for me

    Im just thinking about the ram mostly, even 8gb will never run out
    Google chrome > firefox is huge ram savings as example

    Replaced windows defender with comodo cloud antivirus

    So my current av setup is:

    - Syshardener ( max )
    - Comodo Cloud on default block mode ( lighter than WD)

    This way i can keep syshardened firewall rules + still benefit from comodo sandbox without cis bloat

    Also ccav works as anti-exploit so dont have to use OSA

    + also swapped back to neustar business secure DNS , so i dont have to install family filters for shared system to be sure when im off


    Edit : allowed WD to run scan sometimes, so they kinda work together from now

    WDS Realtime protection is disabled by CCAV ( obviously) but as it uses that much resources, is there any benefit by WD being connected to cloud?

    Comodo cloud just caused problems, reverted back to wd + installed OSA

    Update:
    +Windows defender ( sandboxed)
    +Syshardener ( everything enabled, except prefech service / show hidden files)
    +NoVirusThanks OSArmor ( advanced settings:max)

    The far away i stay from 3rd party firewalls/antiviruses im good

    I really only do browsing so the current 'lockdown' is pretty much enough and Defender is pretty much idle since i dont run / open applications or do any programming / editing

    This is last update for a while, peace for now...i dont spam this thread i promise :emoji_innocent:

    Yes the man keeps his standards high as always... makes you wonder that all these changes the Brother makes does not end up in clickbait
    :);)
    Yes it runs uninstallermonitor on taskmanager , takes 10mbs mem. Iobit does well its job, and doesnt have annoying nags/ads so i wanted to try it over ccleaner wich i have been using forever
