    Upgraded to windows 10 pro to have access to group policy and update defer. Luckily ebay sells really really cheap licenses so i was able to do it.

    So i set defer to 15 days for security upgrades and a month for new features.

    I know you could change the registry in most cases but it's usually more effort and i have to go browse to find the registry. It's not worth my time when they sell this upgrade licenses for $2.
    Good deal! Well worth it for Group Policy.

    Ebay definitely has some very good deals, also for security softs. I bought KIS for $8, for a year licence, and it turned out to be a 2 year license. LOL. I could have gotten it even cheaper, but I gave preference to a vendor that looked more reliable.

    I suppose come Adguard for desktop v6.2 you'll not need its extension, right?

    HTTPS filtering: known issues | Adguard Knowledgebase
    I do. I want to be able to see the site certificate and not always see the adguard certificate.

    Lets say someone makes exploits for everything i use and can bypass them, how exactly will he find my computer from the billions of computers online?
    Even if he can find me it has no benefit for him to hack me when each of his exploits will be worth many thousands.
