Hi all!

I have some questions regarding Windows native protection ( win firewall / ms Defender ) I am so fed up with 3rd party AV / firewall , slowing down Windows and other incompatebileties , that I want to use Defender / win firewall , is there anything Else that I need to beware of , in regards tightening security ( configure Defender / hardconfigurator Will be installed as well ) in edge browser like ransomware / exploit protection and best settings to improve privacy / security in edge and Defender. What extensions to use? I really want to get rid of bulk and have a slim and mean security setup!
Thanks in advance for your answers
and suggestions! ;)
