Added: Adguard
Removed: Ublock origin

Testing if they fixed the issues I had in the past because if they did I prefer adguard. Also updated to windows 10 latest version.
Out of curiosity, why do you prefer Adguard? Or to put it differently, what does ublock do wrong, or lacks?

Interesting info about AdGuard...
I have some privacy concerns, though: There is no info on their website about (if any) data collecting done by AdGuard itself. Just a nagging thought: it intercepts EVERY site you connect to, EVERY app that has internet access, every video you watch, etc. Is there any info out there about this that somebody already is familiar with? Don't have much time to dig around myself...

Of course, all of these are moot points when compared to what Windows itself collects. But that's a different matter...

Q&A - Do you trust AdGuard?

I have increasingly tried to remove VS and Malwarebytes and install them in place only ReHips.

Well, that was fast. ;) Thanks, I'll read it later before bed :)
I was around and saw the notification. :cool:

Tried? So you didn't manage to actually uninstall them?
It's a good idea to do so. Rehips is better than both combined together if you know what you are doing and is also way lighter.

Removed: Adguard
Added: Ublock origin, Dnscrypt
Have some dns issues that Dnscrypt seems to have solved so i am keeping it around.
About adguard the way it does ssl filtering in the browser removes the ability to see who issued the certificate of a site so back to ublock origin.

Please if you may how did you remove Windows defender. :)
Yeah shutup10 does it automatically. It's basically a registry change if you have windows 10 home version or group policy if you have windows 10 pro.
