Hello :)

Without conflict yes, but it's too much, that's why he says it's Overkill :/
Bitdefender has an excellent BB, I don't see the need for SWH :/
Voodooshield why not
I think it's the other way around 🤔
VoodooShield not needed because of Bitdefender's excellent BB.
VoodooShield is running in realtime next to Bitdefender.
It never hurts to harden any system with Simple Windows Hardening.
Simple Windows Hardening is set and forget and not running in realtime.

I understand what you are saying, but I love Voodoo-Shield so much, would I be safer without it?:unsure:
Would it interfere with Bitdefender's Real-Time Protection in any way?
Let's imagine Bitdefender AND VoodooShield, both at the same time detects/blocks a suspicious file, that's what I meant with "conflict" on my first post #2
The question is always how often such case happens to users but it's still possible, in general depends how risky are users behavior... safe browsing habits helps usually ;)

I have added Maintenance Software to my Configuration: System Mechanic Pro instead of Wise Care 365 Pro, which I think is an upgrade, the best Tune-Up Utility in the World IMHO.;)

Just my opinion but system mechanic bricked up my pc before( The whole computer stops responding in the middle of a scan). I don't know why but I would rather stay away. Wise care is a good one, I have no problem with it, I think its better at find stuff too.
