Great choice pablozi,
I try not to be critical of others choices in software so I kept (mostly) quiet about the reason you gave for switching from AdGuard to uBlock.
Deep in my gut though I was wondering "what is he thinking" lol
It's just my opinion so take it with a grain of salt, but AdGuard is superior to uBlock by way of function and offered config options.
I am not saying uBlock does not work, just that AdGuard works better.
I think you did the right thing in the end.
PeAcE
By default uBlock Origin is better than Adguard coz by default uBlock Origin works with few filters & blocks more than ads & Adguard works with EasyFilter & blocks ads only.

Both are quality softs. I do find Adguard Desktop little heavy on system startup.

And I am little disappointed that its been close to a month & yet they didn't fixed a serious bug mentioned here Latest Adguard Desktop Bug . For a limited data plan users like me the bug is a serious prob.

ADDED: Internet Download Manager
Since my IDM giveaway license has expired and I cannot live without it I decided to buy a lifetime license :rolleyes:
I too am running IDM with giveaway lic.

What happens on lic expiry?

IDM lifetime lic -
You'll get the following advantages after the registration:
  • The license to use Internet Download Manager on one computer for any purpose and without any time limit
  • Additional features not available in the trial version like built-in download accelerator to achieve maximum download performance
  • Prioritized technical support
  • FREE upgrade to all new versions of IDM during 3 years. It will be possible to subscribe to updates at a discounted price in 3 years
Does this means after 3 years no free upgrades?

Update 21/01/2017

Removed: HitmanPro.Alert, Adguard extension for Google Chrome
Added: VoodooShield PRO, Heimdal PRO, Adguard for Windows

After a few experiments in last couple of months I decided to go back to one of my all time favorites: VS supported by Heimdal PRO :cool:
May I ask why did you get rid of HMPA? VDS is my favourite and have tried Hiemdal.
Hiemdal PRO should be one of the best alternatives to MBAE, just that I'm not sure about how does the layered defense of it work as compared to MBAE.

The reason is really simple - my license has expired :(
HMP.A is also one of my all time favorites but I don't see the point of paying for it at the moment as I have still VS and Heimdal licenses available.
Maybe at some point I will go back to HMP.A but for now I feel secure enough.

I think you will get tired of cis very , very soon it puts a fairly big brake on the system and webbrowsing. ;)
