Notes by Staff Team
  1. This setup configuration does not have a backup plan. We strongly recommend to add a backup solution for your data so that you can restore it in the case of an emergency.
    Backing up allows the recovery of data that has been lost due of a malware attack (eg. ransomware) or a hard disk crash. In such events you might lose family photos, your music collection, documents, or financial data. Backups are fast and simple to perform so it should be done on a regular basis.

Disable 16-bit.
This setting is redundant.

Windows 10 x64 doesn't support 16-bit programs. Windows 10 x86 has it disabled by default.

You may want to consider back up options for others users of the shared device.

You may want to allow Microsoft Accounts for other users of the shared device. OneDrive can be used to keep other users files' safe and secure.

Windows 64-bit has not got the native NTVDM subsystem, so 16-bit applications cannot run. Yet, there are 64-bit NTVDM alternatives available on GitHub, so it is possible to run 16-bit applications even on Windows 64-bit.
Anyway, I doubt if this could be used in the attacks against the home users.

What do you mean? You need to enable Virtualization in order to even use VirtualBox or am I wrong? :unsure:

Also: About protection through hardware virtualization in Kaspersky applications
You are right. I was meaning Hypervisor enforced code integrity, part of the VBS.

What's the point of using 2 concurrent DNS resolvers?

Regulation.
In his setup he use non filtering Cloudflare so system doesn't break.
Using a filtering one for browser make sense as this eliminate extensions.

I use the same way but with only NextDNS. Default NextDNS setup, configured on Router and more strict NextDNS profile for Edge, Thunderbird, Android, Browser on Android

Well, two solutions exist:
- allowing/ waiting few seconds until ads is gone
- avoid Youtube

On e.g. Xbox you can't block Youtube ads with network filtering so i get these ads there but it's *okay*
None of these 2 solutions are necessary, when there is a third one, to install uBlock Origin and use YT without waiting on pesky, repetitive ads about detergents and audio-book apps. 😀

I was unable to eliminate extensions, as for example YouTube ads and some others can't be filtered. They come from the same URL the video flow comes.
Using Adguard Windows doesn't require an extension and it's blocking Youtube ads. If you want and extension to configure Adguard in your browser you can always enable Adguard Browser-Assistant.

I like the combination of NextDNS + uBlock origin (where it can be deployed). One reduces the traffic, blocks newly-registered domains and greatly limits malware abilities to call home, and the other one is lightweight, it starts working where NextDNS stops.

Not using an extension at all is even lighter and gives you even more possibilities to increase privacy with Stealth-mode without making your fingerprint more unique.

In the end it's up to you and I'm sure Ublock Origin isn't a bad solution either.
