Ladies, gentlemen, and kind good-looking robots as myself, I hereby present to you my 2020 security configuration. This is my main laptop where I mostly work during the day, and do some programming and streaming at night, maybe Netflix.

It's protected by a heavily configured KIS 2020, tweaked for maximum security while low at resources. Check Discuss - RoboMan's Light Kaspersky Settings for more info!

UPDATED: My Kaspersky license ran out so I'm testing my most-probable next security configuration:

First line of defense: BitDefender Total Security 2020

Only thing I dislike is that it lacks any kind of Application Control or anti-exe, which I certainly think NECESSARY.

Extra layer of defense: Hard_Configurator (dissallowed), nothing gets executed unless MANUALLY whitelisted.

So far, so good. System is very light and responsive (even better than when I had WD + Hard_Configurator. I'll test it this whole month and if it goes well, probably by a BitDefender Family Pack.

Bitdefender...what happened to our ESET expert!? You are on to the new hotness, Bitdefender is getting the love around here. Setup looks good. I’d feel safe if I were you. 👍

I love ESET! I have many machines around, this thread is about my main gaming laptop. On my other machines I have ESET, and Kaspersky. I've always liked BitDefender, at least since version 2019. It's very stable and fluid, unlike previous versions.

If it’s good enough for your gaming system maybe I should check it out. But I’ve got my favorites and only a couple systems to play with.
