    What a day it was! I had made up my mind and installed Bitdefender Internet Security, which if offered by my ISP, and so far so good. I feel no performance hit but only slowed down browsing a bit. Other than that everything is running smooth. Regarding password managers, I am back to 1Password. Most importantly, I have downgraded Windows to 1809 for more stability.

    Tested 3 products; Kaspersky Total Security, Mcafee Internet Security and Bitdefender Internet Security. Now I am back to MIS and here's why

    1- It is the lightest of the three products
    2- My license expires in 1500 days
    3- It offers good protection ( I am very careful when it comes to browsing, so having MIS installed is better than not having a security product at all)
    4- I hate kaspersky license policy. "You have exceed the maximum ......." and you have to contact the support and wait days for them to reset the license count.
    5- TAM slows down the overall performance
    6- Bitdefender slows down the download speed
    7- Bitdefender takes ages to appear in the task bar "maybe slow startup"

    Finally, Mcafee gives the least issues, is light, is good at protection and is very cheap.
