Staff Notes

This setup configuration doesn't 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.

Use always hardener mode aggresive at Avast and tweaks from Evjl's Rain. For extra protection combo with syshardener or OSArmor.
I can't use aggresive mode in the new settings,there is no option,but when i go to old settings and turn on aggresive mode from medium (default) there is a bug and is automated turned off in the new settings.IExcept from this i use Evjl's Rain settings.I don't want to use OS Armor, i used it in the past and slowed down my pc.

Scanned with HMPA,ZAM and Adwcleaner found nothing at all.I am suspecting maybe this have something to do with Thor Foresight because of the DNS changing.
Is not good to use many products for security. One antivirus if is not enough use combo with products which we are sure do not have problems. Like OSArmor or syshardener or voodooshield. For Kaspersky free the best combo i think is OSArmor. The rest uninstal
