Hope this is secure enough? I'm quite happy with my current config at the moment but If there is any better free alternative AV than what i'm currently using feel free to suggest it. Especially about tweaking setting and config as I don't understand much.

  • As for "Virus and Malware Removal Tools", You may add HitManPro Free.

Using together Hard Configurator & NVT OSArmor is redundant, just choose one and you are fine!
You should asking @Andy Ful for explaining about possible issues between both above software...

@Oten you should only use H_C and SysHardener together if you have a good understanding of Windows processes. These two softwares in the wrong hands may well result in conflicts resulting in PC trouble which can be difficult to identify.

@silversurfer and @oldschool are right. There is a little gain of keeping them both, and the setup is too complex in daily work. Furthermore, some advanced OSA settings (especially for PowerShell) may block ConfigureDefender options. If you like OSA then keep it, except when you need default-deny setup which can be conveniently managed by H_C.:giggle:(y)
