    I hope with auto-sandbox or auto-block
    default block is the rule i use , yes
    Anything that is untrusted will run in sandbox, so i really dont need to lotto is some antivirus catching them or not
    The thing im lacking is signatures + webfilter ( i have decent from the browser extensions)

    But i think i may add forticlient webfilter so i have everything covered and probably harden a bit of firewall rules with syshardener

    You don't need signatures,which already been totally improved,they will sandboxed.

    How is the system impact with ccav? Had to ditch cis because of the " system tray " bug , it took about 10 minutes to fully load. It was out of the question to acces the internet during this.why the change from Windows 10 to 8.1?

    My hdd broke, had to replace with old one from secondary pc. I had only 8.1 disk lying around so i ran it and pretty much its much lighter than windows 10 does ( bloatfree) and the secondary updates running till 2023

    CCAV is doing exact same thing as comodo firewall and isnt heavy at all

    But i just messed something up today with syshardener, and decided to reset firewall / os rules and replace everything with comodo firewall

    So im running comodo firewall + 8.1 windows windows defender right now, in overall 8.1 seemss to be alot lighter than 10 does..only problem i could think is end-game gaming wich is better with the 10 ( i dont do that all)


    Windows defender on 8.1 installing signatures worse than in 10 ( manually forcing them) so i probably just hit bitdefender or either kaspersky to replace it later

    Update:

    Setup from now;
    - Comodo firewall (cs)
    - AVG antivirus free

    Because kfa works well with cf, but installer says its incompatible makes me to forget it. And since bitdefender isnt combatible and forticlient has the restricted filter problems im going with AVG. Because it has no ads, and i already use googles servives, it doesnt hurt to use AVG at all

    Also cf + avg free has been probably most lightest setup ive ever had , only turn-off was the telemetry/ conspiracy theories

    I pity your system, the records must be a mess with remnants of previous facilities, since you change every day :eek:
    Ive never had any problems with the remnants of antiviruses

    And i just ran clean 8.1 install last night, and since then i have only installed comodo firewall + now the avg and gonna run it like this from now...

    The swapping has been anyways with the comodo products, kaspersky and avast/avg anyways

    My hdd contains is pretty much antivirus + browser as i dont keep anything like pictures, videos etc on my computer

    I just wanted to replace windows defender, since it keeps updating once a year in 8.1

    If you have made a back up of the clean installation of Windows 8.1 you can always restore from that back up
    so no leftovers of av's on your system.
    If you didn't made the back up then you just have to use a good uninstaller and also you have to do some manual removal of remannts

    I always just enter bios > boot from 8.1 oem disk and clean disk > installing takes 5 minutes and theres zero remnants on disk

    Im just curious will this ''kill'' hdd in long run, i usually format after new windows builds but as i can have 8.1 security updates till 2023 i just format 2-3 times a year manually.


    And about the remnants antiviruses left , i guess security suites are even worse
