Removed Powershell, Disabled IPv6, Telemetry, WSH, some services, Windows features except NET Framework. I limited apps to connect only to their retrospective IPs to avoid malicious redirects, like in the CCleaner's case. So svchost and store can only connect to their IPs, the same goes for AV...
I want to replace my current cpu cooler with a Noctua. I've read so many good things about it. I don't know if my older Z170 board and/or case can take the D15, I have to look into it and take measurements. But I hear the brand is worth the little bit extra.
Finally, after several hiccups, the upgrade is done. The biggest issue was casued by ASUS. I ordered "ASUS TUF B450-PRO GAMING" plus BIOS update to support Ryzen 3rd generations. After a week, the support wrote to me, that they are unable to boot the system and there is nothing, that can be done (because ASUS sucks), so I got MSI motherboard instead and updated BIOS without CPU/GPU/RAM, a great feature really. :emoji_ok_hand:
I have just replaced mouse and keyboard and while I like them personally, I am more concerned about the security.
My 11 years old Logitech mouse and keyboard were vulnerable to some exploits, the keyboard used 128-bit encryption.
I would expect HP to be security aware, keyboard dongle has S/N on it, so I guess it can be used with that keyboard only.
I wonder, what security technologies this combo uses, like a better encryption? HP does not put many details into specs.
