    Basically it has been a cost of a couple of Euros and now I have BitLocker and Group Policy Editor on board :)

    Removed HMP.A due to some performance issues - slowed down browsing experience in Google Chrome and Edge.

    Not really security related change but I've just added WinNc file manager.

    Looks great except that you have Windows Defender listed twice in real-time and it is really not a good idea now days to store your passwords in the built in browser password managers.

    Thanx, fixed.
    As long as Google Chrome's password manager hasn't been compromised I don't feel like I need 3rd party one :)

    Hello brother, quick question: were you on the stable, or the beta ?
    cool setup by the way.

    rgr, thanks.
    I was just curious.
    If you feel like playing with it later, try the 709 CTP3 build, I am telling you the difference
    is like night and day. As you know I damn near gave up on them too and the CTP3 beta
    changed all that, they went in a good direction brother.

    I've re-added HMP.A (latest stable build) and it's working like a charm - no more browsing slowdowns and performance issues.

    I fully agree with davisd.
    The CIS has no place.
    Just WD + VS + HMP.A and it is gonna be fine.

    CIS is not that bad, really!
    But I am in love with VS and HMP.A and I simply cannot go further without them :rolleyes:

    It's light and so far I didn't encountered any incompatibilities between DA and the rest of my config.
    Unfortunately there is not much to post regarding DA's interface as it is still only simple console:

    DA uses a kernel level driver that intercepts and analyses files through their ML models in cloud... and the folks at DA have tested it with a few AVs like Avast. It does work well with Kaspersky (not listed by them) and BD too. It usually feel light right?

    Removed: HMP.A (until next major release) and DeepArmor (I am going to test it on my spare machine)
    Added: Heimdal Pro (re-added actually ;)), Everything
    I have also applied various tweaks to Windows Defender and Smart Screen using Group Policy editor (advanced MAPS, Block at First Sight, extended cloud check etc.) but I am too lazy to point them all :)
