Next ReHips build will have reduced impact, they were working on it. On their forum there is a article about it.
SOB despite being powerful isn't actively developed, just some minor compatibility updates.
That's great about Rehips and i am really want to use it on my system when i will buy a new pc.
As for SOB i used it for a couple of weeks. Great software and when it will be developed properly it will be the next trend of security software's.

Kaspersky Free Antivirus: dislike the root certificate used for scanning HTTPS connections and that a lot of settings are not available.
Kaspersky Cloud Free: dislike the root certificate used for scanning HTTPS connections and recommendations you can't turn off from the main screen like for using their password manager.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware: dislike the current interface, not easy to get to all settings.
Comodo Firewall: dislike that the interface doesn't scale with windows and false positives that occur with Windows Store Apps.

What i really hate about 3rd party internet security software is aftermath after uninstall. Yesterday i uninstalled kaspersky internet security and my system restore broke, WD didn't work for hours, i guess kaspersky left some leftovers behind and WD though i have kaspersky still on and right click in start button stopped working.

MBAM -- the update process can be rough. Even the minor updates fill the MBAM forum with issues -- like right now. They seem to have adopted the "make everybody part of the beta" model. This has happened multiple times in the past year.
Latest Malwarebytes Update Causing Windows 7 to Freeze

Cylance -- they have a little tiny GUI and make a separate webpage part of the user GUI. Not a very elegant approach.

ZoneAlarmPro -- I'm just playing around with a comped license right now. It slows things down noticeably. There are periodic short freezes... 1-2 seconds in duration.

McAfee -- Yes, I run this on one old computer -- even though I have unused licenses for much better products. Long story as to why I use it... Anyway, there are freezes, legit sites blocked, issues with accessing the Security Center...

HMP.A - Even if you exclude a harmless & maybe common program without any warning or ask 'would I like to exclude this program' the programs exe is wiped instantly (I think just for fun) out & as it's already excluded is the reason it's not on this PC, it is on my lapply until licence end. (maybe) Not sure if Sophos knows about FP's?

KIS - Unhappy for example with just about every VPN there is (among other programs), hopefully you can exclude it before KIS gets its hand on it. Brilliant bar for that.

Bitdefender Free - SSL scanning blocks safe websites. Oh, and it appears to have cut my wifi multiple times over month-long trial. Took multiple restarts to fix each time. Other than that, an excellent free AV. I wanted to like it ... ... but "bye-bye!". :LOL:

Cylance Smart AV - GUI is definitely not elegant @Burrito, but you are only partially right: it's "minimalist"! :LOL: Oh, and no script protection included.

Windows Defender - GUI not for old, arthritic hands and leads to repetitive stress syndrome in the otherwise healthy person. :sick: The only AV (and system) that holds a gun to your head to use it. Thanks for forwarding that letter @Andy Ful! (y)

@Miss Onnellisuus - What a novel idea, taking the time to see what users don't like! Thank you! :cool::emoji_clap::emoji_clap::emoji_clap:
