Morning fellas,

As from yesterday, this is my primary protection configuration.

I had about 40 days left for my Kaspersky license, but I was already experiencing some issues with certain applications (which Kaspersky support is trying to fix for more than a year now), so I decided to migrate anyways. I am not a fan of Windows Defender resource consumption, so I disabled it for good.

As for real time protection, I went with WiseVector StopX due to it's great malware protection capabilities. Since it's a basic antivirus with no extra modules, and taking into account the IMPORTANCE of default deny modules in 2021, I paired it up with VoodooShield (premium), which is configured to stay always ON. As an extra help, I hardened Windows with SysHardener.

I don't think I leave much of an open door for attack surface, but I'm 100% open for feedback and suggestions if you feel like I need it. I'm trying to avoid overkilling my laptop.

Thank you and stay safe.
