    Regarding extensions:
    - Window Defender Browsing Protection isn't needed as someone stated in a previous post that MS Edge Chromium has this as default, it's just eating up additional CPU
    - Privacy Possum, Decentraleyes and Trace: maybe stick to one or two, as two of these extension may also block the same things
    - HTTPS Everywhere really isn't needed if you have Netcraft, plus most sites (including MT) use HTTPS as default

    Lovely use of MBAM Firewall Control and using Andy Ful's software, I believe this is a strong setup for sure. Just make sure you backup your info frequently as well.

    although I some innitial problems with my wifi connection ( bug !?! ) I have managed to upgrade to win 10 2004.

    Hello my friend! EaseUS has failed many people before; it failed to restore backups. I suggest you have a look at AOMEI (has many giveaways).
    Hi brother thanks for your comment! I did have Aomei on my system a couple of months back , but It failed also on my machine.

    some changes :

    removed all unecessary software that hog up recources :

    adguard premium
    norton 360

    Norton 360 is a nice product but the load on the system / web browsing gets heavier , the longer you use the program , it sounds crazy , but this is my experience at the moment. still have an active subsription to it for a year and a half , but I will not make use of it anymore.

    removed adguard because it drains the battery of my refurbised laptop that much faster.

    Installed / replaced with ( after reverting a fresh Eazyfix baseline image )

    Windows Defender ( Hardened with Configure Defender at Maximum Settings )
    System hardened with Hard Configurator ( Recommended Settings )
    Windows Firewall ( Hardened with Firewall Hardening )

    Microsoft Edge with various flags and Internet Download Manager , Css Exfil , Netcraft , Bitdefender Traficlight Ublock Origin , Trace and Lastpass as extensions
