Hello robin, it is good to see you again!:)
Thank you for sharing your configuration. Exchanging Norton with Bitdefender every 20 days, if I understand correctly, is a very interesting approach which also compares two AVs over a long period!

I second GabiCRX's tips, and really should look closer into Herdprotect myself!;)

Recently, I'd learned CCleaner to also be considered a privacy software because what it does through erasing traceable temp files from one's system is additionally a preventative measure against tracking.:cool:

  • Acknowledging you've deactivated UAC, my hope is that you shall consider activating this safety alert to at least default because, though "notify me only when a program tries to make changes to my computer" is understandably irritating to some, disabling it leads to a less secure system; and who wants that?o_O ;):p

Can I ask why?

There's no need to switch between them, use one real-time and then scan weekly with a second-opinion scanner such as HitmanPro (multiple engines), or another on-demand scanner like, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free. There's also HerdProtect, http://www.herdprotect.com/

You may be right.I feel I'm better protected when changing Av(or is just a suggestion:)).I have not tried HerdProtect but these days to try.

20 days of Norton, 20 days Bitdefender, 20 days Quihoo, ...together with your nice globe avatar, you'll only need one more AV choice to go "Around The World In 80 Days"!!:p:D
